Myriad marquee matchups await Patrick Mahomes in 2020 |

There’s ample intrigue within the AFC West — a division won by the Chiefs for the duration of Mahomes’ young career — with matchups against Derek Carr, Drew Lock and Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert likely. But Mahomes has dominated division foes, having never been defeated in head-to-head matchups with the current crop of QBs and having gone 12-1 in division matchups. His only loss came against the Philip Rivers-led Chargers in 2018.

NFLPA urges players not to practice together as COVID-19 cases surge | ChiefsWire

Please be advised that it is our consensus medical opinion that in light of the increase in Covid-19 cases in certain states that no players should be engaged in practicing together in private workouts. Our goal is to have all players and your families as healthy as possible in the coming months.

We are working on the best mitigation procedures at team facilities for both training camps and the upcoming season, and believe that it is in the best interest of all players that we advise against any voluntary joint practices before training camp commences. Stay safe.”

Jamaal Charles, Travis Kelce make ESPN’s AFC West All-Decade Team | AA

As for the actual roster for the All-Decade team, it’s nice to see former Chiefs receiving their due alongside the stars of the present. Jamaal Charles is the running back on the roster—the only one—while right tackle Mitchell Schwartz and former center Rodney Hudson both made the offensive line. Travis Kelce was named the best tight end in the division while the Chiefs failed to put a single wide receiver on the offense (more on this in a second).

As for the defense, four Chiefs were named starters among the 11 total slots. Eric Berry anchors the secondary while the trio of Justin Houston, Chris Jones and Derrick Johnson occupy their respective positions in the front seven. As for special teams, the Chiefs get both return slots with Knile Davis as kick returner and Tyreek Hill as punt returner.

Only a matter of time before coronavirus hits KC Chiefs | AA

At this point, every single franchise, including the Kansas City Chiefs, should prepare to hear the same in the coming days and weeks, if they’re not already dealing with it behind the scenes. It’s only a matter of when, not if, the Chiefs will have to answer questions about players, coaches, or team employees who have tested positive for COVID-19.

KC Chiefs: Rashad Fenton considered most intriguing project player | KCKingdom

Rashad Fenton, a 2019 sixth-round selection, will likely take on more responsibilities. He didn’t start a game last season, but he showed the ability to play outside the numbers and cover the slot. In fact, he allowed a lower completion percentage (47.1) and quarterback rating (57.7) than Breeland, per Pro Football Reference.

KC Chiefs: 2018 offense ranked as third best since start of millennium | KCKingdom

Even with Hunt gone for the back half of the season, the Chiefs managed to finish first in both points and total yards. This was largely due to the magic created by Patrick Mahomes. In his first season as a full-time starter, he was named league MVP.

Arrowhead Guys Twitter:

The players’ side believes the league has no legal position to hold this year’s money in escrow. The NFLPA is adamant about borrowing for future years to offset a potential salary cap drop in 2021. To them, flat caps for a few years > giving back money in 2020.

Spoke with @TesslerSports about RB Raheem Mostert and his trade demand from #49ers. His request was simply to bring Mostert in line with the highest paid RBs on the team. Tevin Coleman makes $4.55M in 2020 and that’s where Mostert wants to be. He has two years left on his deal.

My daughter will finally get her graduation tonight. We can only bring a total of eight people (mom, dad, 2 brothers, 4 grandparents), but she gets the official walk and diploma. On to being a Wildcat and, hopefully, med school!
