Chiefs minicamp day 2: Ward working hard, receivers struggle with Mahomes’ deep throws | KC Star

Ward’s hard work seems to be paying off. During minicamp and OTAs, he’s taken snaps with the first and second team defensive backs.
Joining the Chiefs via trade from Dallas late in the preseason, Ward eventually took over for Orlando Scandrick and started three of the final four games to finish with 26 solo tackles and three passes defended on the year.

“I didn’t know they used the running back so much in the passing game until I got here,” Hyde said. “It put a smile on my face.”
The best of Hyde’s previous NFL seasons occurred in 2017 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. He rushed for 938 yards as the primary back and led the team with 59 receptions.

Copied & Pasted from Chiefs.com :

” 2. Speaking of the Chiefs’ linebacker corps, Kansas City added free agent Damien Wilson this offseason after four seasons with Dallas.

Hitchens and Wilson spent three years together with the Cowboys and are now reunited in Kansas City after a year apart. In fact, it turns out that Chiefs’ General Manager Brett Veach asked Hitchens about Wilson during the free agency process.

“I mentored him a little bit in Dallas for my three years with him there. Veach and them asked me about him and I told them all good things. He’s here and he’s doing a good job,” Hitchens said. “Coaches love him. He’s one of those guys that runs to the ball. He just doesn’t stop. I’m excited to be able to play with him again and he’s going to be able to help our team out a lot.”

For what it’s worth, Wilson was primarily used as a strong-side (or SAM) linebacker during his tenure in Dallas. The duo of Hitchens and Wilson made 13 starts together over their three years with the Cowboys, with Wilson generally at strong-side linebacker and Hitchens in the middle, but the two players did a little bit of everything.

It will be interesting to see how Spagnuolo uses both players in 2019.”

I’ve always hated Saint Louis, I found myself cheering for the Blues because Mahomes attended a game wearing a Blues Jersey or sweater or whatever Hockey calls their uniform.

I hear about how people became Chiefs fans because of D T. and Montana it was crazy that I was cheering for Texas Tech in college basketball and now the Blues because of Mahomes.

Thinking about the Schwartz extension. Very, very good move. Get him for an extra year at a good price, and free up cap by converting his salary to guaranteed money…for a guy who never missed games is a safe bet.

It seems almost cruel for the NFL to pretend Aaron Donald could win MVP.

He was definitely in the running last year. Pat more than deserved it last year hands down. But given a stellar defensive player, I have no problems handing it to such an individual. I know here in KC, we’re not used to having such an elite player since DT, but IMHO MVP should include all three aspects of the game; Def/Off/ST if such a player is having that type of season.

He was the only one I felt comfortable winning it over Mahomes.

There’s a tweet above with a video of him at mini-camp. He catches some balls and then talks about how great he is.

I’m really looking forward to watching the Raiders fall apart again. Brown, Burfict, and Incognito join Crybaby Derek Carr in Oakland’s last year. What could possibly go wrong? Are they really doing Hard Knocks? Is that why Gruden signed up all this drama?

They are doing Hard Knocks.

Couldn’t be on a better team for compatibility. It will be interesting to see just how “good” they are this year. I mean it’s not hard to step up from last season which was a complete disaster, and it was ALL on Gruden.

This truly now his team with his complete destruction of anything not Gruden last year and now all the collected draft picks from this year’s draft. The $100M coach whose claim to fame is winning a SB with a team that Tony Dungy built playing his former team with whom he was more than familiar with not only personnel, but the entire playbook. Now the stars of the show with Hard Knocks. You’re going to get a belly full of hearing AB spout how great he is and this is the best team he’s ever been on yada yada…

8-8 would be a major upgrade for them.

I’m happy for the Blues. Then again I seem to be the rare one who doesn’t hate StL around here.

CaS can get behind them because O’Reilly was a Sabre last year.

Cam Erving was never really starter material, yes? Super sub checks out.

Starter quality backup IMHO. And that’s a necessary thing when protecting the franchise

The early Morning Huddle is the best part about getting up at 5am to drive to St. Paul for work training.
Good work and thank you for putting these together!
