Report: Chiefs DE Alex Okafor agrees to restructured contract | ChiefsWire

According to a new report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Okafor has signed a restructured contract with the Chiefs. His newly agreed-upon deal clears $2 million in cap space for the 2020 NFL season. He’ll make a maximum of $4.96 million in 2020 according to Pelissero. That number includes $860K in per-game roster bonuses and an additional $2 million in incentives.

Alex Okafor’s restructured deal gives Chiefs another defender in contract year | AA

With Okafor in a contract year alongside Tanoh Kpassagnon in the same financial (and football) position, the Chiefs should have two very motivated veterans aiming to rack up significant production opposite Frank Clark. That’s a very good thing for a team looking to “run it back.” Losing Okafor on the books creates uncertainty in 2021 at the position, but keeping him for the length of the deal was already in question after last season’s injury.

Are Chiefs gearing up for splashy free-agent signing? | ChiefsWire

Clowney hasn’t reached the elite pass-rushing status that he was known for in college, making him the No. 1 overall pick in 2014. He has 32 career sacks in 75 games played, but no more than nine sacks in a single season. He has struggled to stay healthy and that has been part of the problem. However, playing alongside a duo like Clark and Jones for a year could allow him to achieve that double-digit sacks and reach that elite status. A year later he could be hitting free agency with a Super Bowl ring and a whole new narrative surrounding his career.

Hardman is going to be the team’s secret weapon this year. Tyreek Hill may be one of the best deep threats we have ever seen, but the Chiefs are now using him as a true number one, running a wide variety of routes and concepts that may open a role up for Hardman to be the teams deep threat.

Hardman’s ADP has him in the 12th round, and I fully expect him to outplay that and then some. Take your shot on the young wide receiver next year, you won’t regret it.

If college football season doesn’t happen, NFL likely will play on Saturdays |

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the NFL likely will move games from Sundays to Saturday, if college football doesn’t proceed this season. It’s unclear whether the games would be broadcast, streamed, or distributed on a pay-per-view basis, but the league likely would backfill the vacant Saturday windows with NFL content.

Here is one of the throws Mahomes was talking about. Kelce actually comes open for a TD when the defenders spot Robinson in the flats. The corner never carries with Kelce. #JacobsEyeInTheSky #Chiefs

National Talking Heads:

Veteran RB C.J. Anderson, who went to the Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl, is retiring from NFL at age 29. A great run for an undrafted free agent. Anderson now plans to pursue a career in coaching and initially is likely to do it at a big power 5 college. “Details soon,” he said.

. . . A rich-get-richer approach for a Chiefs team that just won it all and continues to trend upward on a rebuilt defensive unit. Jones and Clark probably aren’t going to hit best-ever status, but they’ll flirt with enough-to-repeat status.

The way Veach has worked this last offseason has been nothing less then maybe the best ever GM performance. Honestly, the dude had a lot on his plate.

Would you say he is the Patrick Mahomes of GM’s?

I would hate games on Saturdays, as my work schedule would ensure I missed 99% of them

While I’m not 100% sold on grabbing Clowney for a 1 year deal, I think he would absolutely feast alongside Clark and Jones

He should have feasted along side watt and company and that didn’t really happen. I’m not sold he would be any better here
