Many had a role in the Chiefs’ defensive turnaround this season. Kansas City had a new defensive coaching staff, led by coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, and eight players who weren’t with the 2018 Chiefs had a significant hand in the title run.

“I’m going to have to go with the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs,” Hall said. “I keep him in the division — he knows that division very well and anytime you don’t feel the love reciprocated, you want a little payback. So you want to see those guys twice a year.”

Nick Jacobs: Chiefs have big free-agent decisions ahead | KSHB41

If the Chiefs want to place the franchise or transition tag on a player this offseason, that window opens Feb. 25 and ends March 10. Kansas City likely needs to pay its franchise quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, before the end of the season, so every free-agent decision will need to be calculated with that in mind.

Now that Chiefs are Super Bowl champions, which NFL team will be next to break title drought of 25+ years? | USAToday

There are still a dozen organizations in the league that have never hoisted a Lombardi. And while New England Patriots fans grapple with nearly 400 days without a new ring – sorry, kids – the Niners have joined a list of a half-dozen clubs at least a quarter century removed from Super Sunday glory. (The Dallas Cowboys will boost that figure to seven a year from now if they don’t win Super Bowl LV.)

AFC cut candidates: Sammy Watkins, Jacoby Brissett in trouble? | NFL

Arrowhead Guys Twitter:

The 2019 salary cap was $188.2 million, so another $10M+ jump. Whether, and how much more, the salary cap would rise in 2020 under a new CBA would depend on whether that additional revenue is counted towards salary cap or benefits.

Local Chiefs Reporters:

Multiple league sources tell @FanSided the NFL salary cap could potentially reach $240 million in 2021.

Adam Teicher, I always knew I loved you.

Chiefs camp stays in St. Joe. Not sure why they would ever leave.

Sure sounds like Chris Harris wants to be a Chief. Since Breeland is likely to price himself out of KC, I’d be willing to forgive Harris his Broncos affiliation if he plays at a high level on a mid-tier contract.

It will make up for Neil Smith.

2020 is in the bag, Dieter has been resigned.

This would be awesome, but will never happen.
It’s unfair that a shitass team like the Bengals get rewarded with first dibs at a franchise qb in the draft. They should at least have to beat an xfl team first.

Tony Sommer

There’s no way the NFL owners would risk their $2 billion franchise being relegated to the XFL.

I assumed they were going to roll that out last night. I was disappointed not to see it.

Hopefully they were all partying for a couple days & it’ll be out soon?
I’m grasping, I know, but I’d really love to see this football year all the way to its finish, if only to soothe my OCD.

There are some interesting nuggets buried in the Mic’d Up SB video…

“Jimmie, stay in the middle of the field, whatever you do.”

Fred Warner to Jimmie Ward, who was playing deep Safety on the Jet-Wasp call where Tyreek Hill ran a deep post and then cut outside. Lol!!

In case you scrolled past this… Clark’s lil’ girl is, well, not so little any more.
