Chiefs news for 28 June 2020
Hands down, Gay Jr. is the most exciting linebacker prospect the Chiefs have drafted since they added Derrick Johnson in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. Many consider him a steal because of his athletic ability and high upside. Only time will tell if Gay Jr. is able to live up to expectations, but there seems to be optimism coming out of sportsbooks about his potential for a memorable rookie campaign.
Minnis is from Miami, Florida and played football for Miami Northwestern before signing with FSU out of high school. Snoop would go on to win a National Championship at FSU in 1999. Minnis was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2001 NFL draft.
[Niang] The Kansas City Chiefs offense is loaded, and the unit lost very little this offseason. However, Stefen Wisniewski, who started at left guard throughout the team’s Super Bowl run, has signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Niang played tackle in college and excelled. He didn’t allow a sack the past three seasons, according to Pro Football Focus. But Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz are set at tackle. Niang can make more of an impact at guard.
While I agree that Edwards-Helaire is one of the players fans should be most excited about this year, hopefully he doesn’t get too much wear and tear during the preseason. He’s going to be an important piece for the KC Chiefs in their “Run It Back” tour and in the coming years as well.

The reality is that, in all likelihood, only three to four players from this team will make it to Canton. Sure, Juan Thornhill or Mecole Hardman could end up having Hall of Fame worthy careers. Eric Bienemy could go on to have a Hall of Fame head coaching career. Any number of other players could get in to the conversation. However, they’re just not there yet based on their current resumes, and the odds that they do are pretty low, based on NFL history. So “The Field” checks in at the bottom of our list.
This isn’t the first time Cowherd has dissed Mahomes and the Chiefs, as earlier this month, he said Broncos quarterback Drew Lock could have a chance to win the league MVP and also picked the Broncos to win the AFC West. Is this guy watching the same league as the rest of us? It sure doesn’t seem like it.
