Chiefs news for 13 June 2019
Following Tuesday’s practice, linebacker Anthony Hitchens, offensive guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and cornerback Kendall Fuller all checked in with the media to discuss how the Chiefs’ offseason program has been going.
Here are five things that stood out.
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.
From the quotes given by Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at minicamp on Tuesday, it’s clear the Chiefs have given Erving’s spot at left guard to a new starter, which makes Erving a super sub.
“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.
