Should help a lot in our dime packages. I love how versatile our lb group is now. We’ve got thumping run stoppers and athletic coverage guys too.

Hopefully he’s like a huge guy named tiny and he doesn’t play with tranquility.

Mike Edwards meh, JAG. Dru Tranquil was one of my most underrated free agents available. I want numbers, but he was more talented than many LB’s who got big deals. Again, devil is in the details, but at this stage of FA, KC got a very good player who shouldn’t cost much

elite! Gay, Bolton , Tranquil can all run, cover, hit, blitz. The conventional wisdom is the DL sets the tone on defense. But when you have 3 LB’s who can do it all, it gives you unbelievable flexibility with what you can do

Just saw this per rotoworld

Chiefs signed LB Drue Tranquill, formerly of the Chargers, to a one-year contract.

Tranquill was a part-time player for the Chargers for three years but stepped into a larger role for the 2022 season. He started all but one game for LA last year and his numbers exploded. He led the Chargers in tackles while totaling five sacks plus 10 TFLs. He also forced a fumble and picked off one pass. Pro Football Focus graded Tranquill as one of the league’s best inside linebackers in pass-rush and coverage situations. He should slot into a starting role for Kansas City in 2023.

I recall when we first brought Andy to the team, Clark Hunt and Andy Reid made it clear that the control of the team was a collective effort from the coaches and front office. Dorsey was ousted because he cut Maclin without first notifying Andy if I recall.

At the start of the year, they were supposed to be middle of the pack, and overachieved. looks like it was a flash in the pan. Their talent wasn’t as high as their rating justified.

oh my, that’s gonna change some things, and already the count is going down down down …

No. 11 Pitt and No. 6 Creighton advanced to the second round and also brought us to only 30 perfect brackets after 23 games.
Pitt’s upset of No. 6 Iowa State took the total from 179 to 71, while Creighton’s victory vs. No. 11 NC State lowered the number to 30 across the major online games.

Here’s the current counter:

  • Total: 30
  • MBCG: 3
  • ESPN: 24
  • CBS: 2
  • Yahoo: 1

I did a mock this morning

7. Dawand Jones | Ohio State | 6’8”, 374 lbs2022 Stats: GP 12.Wilbar’s Grade: Late 2ndJeremy: Talk about a BIG tackle prospect! Jones is a mammoth individual that just mauls defenders in both phases. If he can get into position quick enough that is. You obviously have concerns over a guy that large being able to athletically keep up with the demands of playing Tackle at the next level, especially versus, say the Uber athletic Myles Garrett’s of the world. One thing that won’t be in question is whether or not he can overpower the opposition if he gets his hands on them. Jones is the perfect road grader RT prospect for teams wanting a powerful people mover in the run game. If Jones can improve his footwork at the next level, he’s got the size profile to be a stud.

a number of huys that could be very good Nose tackles and even some depth for Chris Jones

6. KARL BROOKS, BOWLING GREEN (RS SENIOR | 6-4, 300)

  • 2022 Grade: 93.4
  • Play Style: Penetrator
  • Initial Round Projection: Day 2

Brooks is in the tweener category. He’s not quite stout enough to be an every-down defensive tackle and not quite long nor explosive enough to stay on the edge, where he played for Bowling Green. Still, the quicks he plays with for a 300-pounder is something I’m willing to bet on — especially when it translated to the football field for an 89.6 run-defense grade and a 94.8 pass-rushing grade in 2022.

I don’t think so

wish Tranquill was for more than 1 yr, so it goes … good bargain (I think) for a year and maybe offsets some of the things Clark did … shores up the Defense (along with the new S) esp on passing downs (wondering if Spags may go to more of a 3-4 than a 4-3 and STILL be able to dial up pressures & sacks)

This must be this evening’s open thread, and so, in lieu of the traditional one:

Where the mountains of Mourne
Come down to the sea
Will she no come back to me?
Will she no come back to me?

My Róisín Dubh is my one and only true love

This song is a medley of three traditional Irish songs (with an American song mixed in), and seemed appropriate on this holiday that celebrates the Emerald Isle.
