Patrick Mahomes Wins “Best NFL Player” Honors at Annual ESPY Awards | The Mothership

It was a season to remember for Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2018, and while the upcoming campaign is inching closer by the day, the awards are still rolling in for the 23-year-old signal caller.

Mahomes was recognized at the annual ESPY awards on Wednesday night with “Best NFL Player” honors, beating out Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees, Rams’ defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Rams’ tailback Todd Gurley.

Tennessee Titans ideal trade target from the Kansas City Chiefs | Fan Sided

So, I think the Tennessee Titans should call and make a strong offer for Chris Jones, DT.

I think if you call the Kansas City Chiefs today and offer them a 
2020 2nd round pick, you could really intrigue Brett Veach to make that deal. If you take away his huge 2018 campaign, Jones only had 8.5 career sacks in 32 games.

Those numbers wouldn’t put him in the top-20 in sacks over from DTs and 3-4 DEs over that stretch. I don’t bring that up to diminish his value, I bring it up to say that he isn’t a consistently elite pass rusher despite his insane year in 2018.

If you are Veach are you going to gamble that he is going to have another elite season in 2019? It is really lose-lose, because if he does you probably won’t pay him what he is asking and if he doesn’t then you probably still won’t pay him what he is asking or franchise tag him.

Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce trash talks Browns, ‘I’d hate to hurt feelings again’ | Blasting News

“I’d hate to hurt the Browns feeling again. I always dreamed about scoring touchdowns in the Dawg Pound and when I did last year it was weird seeing all those middle fingers in the crowd.” Kelce said when he was asked about the Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs meeting up in the AFC Championship.

Travis Kelce was talking about when the two teams matched up during the regular season in 2018. The Chiefs went into Cleveland and won handily 37-21. It was definitely the story of the home town boy doing good, as the tight end had seven catches for 99 yards and two touchdowns. It appears the fans in the stadium were not giving Kelce any special treatment just because he was originally from the town.

It’s important to note that game was the first the Browns were playing without Hue Jackson.

Tyreek Hill audio exposes the failures of KCTV-5 and Angie Ricono | Arrowhead Addict

I’m not a reporter. The furthest I ever got into hard news was 12 years ago when I was editor of my high school newspaper and my staff broke the vitally important switch from Dominos to Papa John’s as the school’s official pizza provider. Today, I’m about a half-step above blogger. But I still consider myself a very small part of the collective “Chiefs media”, albeit perhaps not the Kansas City media, and I’d feel like a pretty massive hypocrite if I didn’t call out Ricono and KCTV-5 for their egregious bungling of the release of the Hill/Espinal audio when that very audio inspired me to call out the Chiefs.

It’s going to be extremely difficult for KCTV-5 to justify this, and even more difficult for anyone to fully trust Ricono’s reporting again. I cannot imagine listening to that audio for the first time, hearing Hill so strongly denying that he was ever violent toward Espinal in 2014, and deciding to bury it. This is information that runs directly opposite of Hill’s public sentiments regarding the issue, and it’s not “newsworthy”? Frankly, that smells like a bull’s ripe feces.

3 Potential Trade Partners for Chiefs’ Chris Jones | Heavy.com

2. Dallas Cowboys

The NFC East is a roller coaster year in and year out. The Cowboys have found themselves at the top of that roller coaster in recent years. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott look like they will be a duo in Dallas for quite some time. Last season, they had something that they lacked for a while, a strong defense.

The Cowboys sport one of the best linebacker duos in the NFL with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch. DeMarcus Lawrence is a force coming around the edge, but the defensive line could use some work. Think about the Cowboys’ front seven with Jones right in the middle of it. This seems like a typical Cowboys’ move. They are always looking to add the big name when another team has given up. If the Chiefs do not want to sign Jones, they might be able to send him to the NFC.

Broncos CB Chris Harris: ‘I like being the underdog’ | NFL.com

Joining Good Morning Football on Wednesday, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said he likes that most are ignoring the Broncos during the offseason.

“The 
Chiefs are the team to beat right now. They’ve won it, I think, the past three years so until somebody knocks them off they’re the team beat,” Harris said. “I’m telling you right now, I like being the underdog right now. Teams are sleeping on us and so I like taking that approach this year. They’re going to have to wake up when we hit them in the mouth.”

Picking the NFL’s best offenses at every personnel grouping | ESPN

The team that ran it best: I’m picking the Chiefs over the Philadelphia Eagles here, but it was close. Why? I love the tight end combo of Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert in Philly. But Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tossed 13 touchdowns out of 12 personnel last season, which led the league. Plus, three of Mahomes’ top targets — Tyreek HillTravis Kelce and Sammy Watkins — finished in the top 20 of receiving yards with one back, two tight ends and two wide receivers on the field. In short, both Andy Reid and Doug Pederson can scheme up opposing defenses in this personnel grouping.

The complete destruction of the Steelers still makes me chuckle every time I watch it. Look when Mahomes releases the ball here. He knew.

Just saw the clip of the KCTV5 news director. Man…. Talk about being out-of-touch. They had over 24 hours to formulate their response and this is what they came up with? “2014 was asked and answered…. He’d never publicly denied it before.” Yes, the fact that he vehemently denied it in a private conversation with the person who would know if he was lying is exactly why it was newsworthy. Also, his defense of Angie Ricono is that “she personally got a guy thrown in jail.” Seriously?!?!? That’s … um, a very poor defense in this particular instance.

Thanks to Leveon for paving the way. I’m all about these RB’s on rookie contracts getting some guaranteed $

Never forget guys like Alfred Morris:

Drafted in the 6th round by the Redskins, played for them for 4 years, ran for a total of 4,713 yards, 29 TDs, then dumped and picked up by the Cowboys for 2 years, then SF for 1.

Played 2012 – 2018
4 year contract with Redskins: 2,223,100
2 year contract with Cowboys: 3,500,000
1 year contract with Niners: 790,000
Career earnings: $7,395,100

He should’ve went the Leveon route when he was with the Skins. Instead they ran all the tread off his tires through his rookie 6th round contract and then dumped his ass.

Anyone wonder about the timing of the audio release? You mean to tell me the full audio was leaked on June 7th to multiple outlets, and nobody jumped on that to release it as fast as possible? So on one hand, we have KCTV5 release the highly edited video, for the supposed purpose of creating a buzz for their station. Then supposedly all these other outlets get ahold of a MUCH more interesting tape, and they don’t race to release it?

Then there’s the whole NFL investigation. They’ve had this tape since the beginning. Everyone assumed he would get some sort of suspension up until about a week ago, when it was rumored he might not receive any suspension, with no reason provided. Then a couple days before they’re supposed to reach a conclusion on Tyreek, the audio is released which largely vindicates him? I mean, if I’m the NFL, I definitely want the public to hear the audio before my decision is announced to avoid the outcry of social justice warriors. But the timing of all these events are rather curious. Has me thinking the NFL has had a pretty heavy hand in how this thing has played out. I just wonder how the full audio was contained for so long.

I think the NFL/Chiefs knew about all of this way before it happened. I would even wager the Chiefs probably tried their best to keep this hush hush even before April because they knew it was BS but would cause an uproar. Time is everything and nothing that has happened with this is coincidental.

Arrowhead Live Twitter indicated Tyreek is meeting with Goodell today and the announcement of no suspension will come tomorrow.

if they are willing to part with 1 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder, sure.

otherwise, its just a pipe dream.

I would trade him for a first rounder, if it was to a team I knew would have a high pick.

I remember somebody else who suggested trading Chris Jones…

Should the Chiefs Trade Chris Jones?

I think if you call the Kansas City Chiefs today and offer them a 2020 2nd round pick, you could really intrigue Brett Veach to make that deal.

By this logic, Frank Clark was only worth a 2020 6th round pick. Otoh, he does say the compensation would “intrigue Brett Veach”, not that this is a good deal.

The Rams game gets GOTY? It did make two pieces of history. 50 pts and lose, but more importantly it was the week of AGs founding. How did ESPN leave that out? That is “birth of a nation” stuff.

No, I would not trade CJ for a 2nd round pick.
I would trade Veach for a 3rd, however.

Jesus and the other one too. It makes no sense to trade Jones for a second round pick. Worst case is he doesn’t report to camp but still highly likely reports week 1. Then you play him this year and tag him in the offseason. Trade him for at least an early second round pick or play him on the tag.

Not even Veach could fuck that up badly enough to trade him for a 2nd right now.

Maw423

Agreed. If they can’t agree to a number, play him and then do the tag and trade.

CWil03

If Jones doesn’t report to camp, he won’t earn unrestricted free agent status, which also means we will not have to use the tag on him next year and can resign him as a restricted free agent where we put 1 of 4 designations on him. (we would put a 1st round tender on him)

First-round tender: Free agent can negotiate with other teams, but original team has option to match any deal and will receive a first-round selection if it opts not to match the deal.

Second-round tender: Free agent can negotiate with other teams, but original team has option to match any deal and will receive a second-round selection if it opts not to match the deal.

Original-round tender: Free agent can negotiate with other teams, but original team has option to match any deal and will receive a selection equal to the round the player was originally selected in if it opts not to match the deal.

Right of first refusal: Free agent can negotiate with other teams, but original team has option to match any deal. The team will not receive any compensation if it opts not to match another deal.

Excellent info. Even better. So there’s zero reason to trade him now for peanuts.
