Just How Far Will The Chiefs Travel In 2022 ? | usatoday

We already know which teams the Kansas City Chiefs will face next season and we know that they’ll play the Los Angeles Chargers in “Thursday Night Football” during Week 2. Another thing we already know about the schedule? With the NFL revealing all of the international games for 2022, we know the exact distances that NFL teams will have to travel for their games.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter shared a tweet containing the total miles and number of time zone changes for each of the league’s 32 teams. Being centrally located right in the middle of the country typically means that Kansas City is always around the middle of the pack for travel distance. This year, however, they rank very literally right in the middle of all NFL teams at No. 16.

Chiefs waive six players ahead of rookie minicamp | usatoday

According to the NFL’s official personnel notice, the following six players were waived by the team on Thursday:

The most notable of the players waived here is Gehrig Dieter, who has been with the team off and on since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama in 2017. He appeared in 10 games in Kansas City from 2018-to-2020, catching 2-of-5 passes for 32 yards in that span. He spent a lot of time on the practice squad and has been a solid special teamer for Kansas City when called upon.

10 best remaining free agents Chiefs could target following 2022 NFL draft | usatoday

Below you’ll find a very brief look at 10 free agents the team could target:

Brett Veach hasn’t ruled out going and making additions in free agency following the draft, but there are a few things that will inform those decisions. Some of that will be determined by what transpires in the offseason program. The gravity of the moves they can afford to make will be determined by the structure of a contract extension for Orlando Brown Jr., who remains on the franchise tag.

Chiefs CB Trent McDuffie’s film study habits will set him up for NFL success | yahoosports

It’s not something that anyone thinks will be a problem or he wouldn’t have been made a first-round pick, but it means that his preparation will always need to be a step above the rest. To this point in his football-playing career, one of the biggest boons to his success has been his film study habits

Skyy’s the Limit: Can Moore Help Fill the Void in the Post-Cheetah Era?| theanalyst

With a diverse skill set and the talent to win all over the field, Moore has real potential to grow into an immediate impact player in Kansas City early on. We can discuss his level of competition in college all day, but it’s wildly apparent that Moore can go up against anyone and win consistently when reviewing his performance against Pittsburgh this past season.

Squashing a common misconception right off the top: Skyy is way Moore than just a slot receiver. At the college level, 68.1% of his snaps came outside the numbers, with the rest coming from in the slot. He found wild success in both alignments, creating a higher percentage of big plays outside (36.0%) than he did in the slot (25.5%).

Chiefs FB Mike Burton pumped for second season under RB coach Greg Lewis | usatyoday

After spending four seasons as the wide receivers coach in Kansas City, Greg Lewis was to take over for Deland McCullough as running backs coach. Prior to his time in Kansas City, Lewis had spent eight seasons as a receiver in the NFL, three seasons as a wide receivers coach in college football, a season as an assistant receivers coach in New Orleans, and one season coaching receiver in Philadelphia.

“He puts in the work to understand it, not only within himself, but he puts in the work to be able to communicate it to the players so that we understand it better,” Burton explained. “I think that’s one of his strengths, that he makes it very easy for us to understand. Whether it’s the run game, the pass game, the protection game – all of that stuff is communicated extremely well from Greg to us. It allows us to then go play fast, which makes our group better.”

Show Me The Money | usatoday

Kansas City Chiefs draft picks have begun to report to the team’s facilities for rookie minicamp, which begins on Saturday. As a result, players are able to put pen to paper on their rookie contracts.

He is the first Chiefs draft pick to sign his rookie deal, with more likely to come this weekend at minicamp. The team traditionally likes to get these guys under contract early and get them shifting their attention from the business side of getting drafted to the football side of it.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, TE Travis Kelce remain atop NFLPA’s top 50 sales list | chiefswire

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and TE Travis Kelce continue to be top earners on the NFLPA’s top 50 player sales list.

According to the NFLPA, either Brady or Mahomes have ranked atop the quarterly or year-end sales list 12 consecutive times dating back to October of 2018. Mahomes had one of the five most popular jerseys sold alongside Brady, Joe Burrow, Josh Allen and George Kittle.

9-Year NFL LB Compares Chiefs S Bryan Cook to Hall of Famer |

This is an NFL comparison that Kansas City Chiefs fans will want to hear.+

“You know what I see [in Bryan Cook]… I see Brian Dawkins. A guy that was in my ear my whole career when I was in Philadelphia, the two years I was there,” Barber explained. Having a knowledge of the game, being able to control the secondary, being able to control — when it’s a pass set — knowing, kind of, instinctively where you need to be./

Quite a while back somewhere else I read a commenter’s byline which made me chuckle and might encourage you:

“I’m on a roll, like toilet paper, I was made for this shit.”
