“…what inquiring minds really want to know right now is what the heck happened to Phillips and what’s his state of affairs today? because at last blush – as Covitz so eloquently put it – “How does a man who stands 6 feet 5 inches and weighs 315 pounds disappear? 

Let’s do the news, hopefully without law enforcement involvement…

He better still show up for camp.

Then we better draft or trade for a real LT next offseason.

I’m happy to draft a replacement, tag him again, and let him walk. Never liked the trade for him in the first place.

Especially since last year was his first as LT.

He wasn’t exactly perfect at protecting Mahomes either. Not worth huge long term contract without showing major improvement.

Brown will play this year on the FT and be tagged again next year. They may work something out next year or they might just tag and trade him. Either way, I’m good with it. I’m almost glad he didn’t take the deal because if he had played the entirety of the contract he would have been overpaid.

agreed … he can play OR sit out (and lose 1M/wk) … if I were Veach, my thinking is the tag this year and someone new next year

to: Veach, Brett

from: Me

please please PLEASE don’t “overpay” Orlando Brown, Jr … the NFL is already one of the biggest reasons for America’s economic inflation (in general) and (IMO) it’s ridiculous seeing some of these guys make 10, 20, 30 million/yr for “playing a game” … sure, I know it’s a “business” but I also know the business is “entertainment” and even though I’ve no money to spend on such things (games? not a chance, jerseys? ha! cheap bumper stickers MAYBE) the continuing upward-spiraling of contracts means more inflation for everyone (not just including myself as a fan, but for everyone – fan or otherwise)

do not, I implore you, do NOT “reset the OT market” for a player who hasn’t EARNED it … I’d rather see 16M go to schools or charities or SOMEWHERE that it does more good than line the pockets of an “entertainer”

just my opinion, thanks for reading

So, I have the new poem out this morning. Another song parody, set to the tune of the classic CCR song, “Proud Mary.” I present: “Training Camp’s Near, Kansas City!” https://arrowheadguys.com/chiefs-song-parody-training-camps-near-kansas-city-to-the-tune-of-creedence-clearwater-revival-proud-mary/

The Chiefs better not sign Orlando Brown Jr. to anything more than $20m per year.

If we remember anything from previous regimes, it should be don’t pay good players great money.

I believe you are both correct. Brown hasn’t shown yet that he’s a market mover, but Nova’s points are valid. Regardless of the outcome, have a good weekend AG, and…

We have a bunch of picks next year too. I’m sure Veach is considering all options.

Also, this couldn’t happen at a worse time. Our DLine is still a big question mark. We also need to make improvements there.
