Which NFL players best compare to Chiefs’ top draft picks? | Chiefswire

Comparing incoming NFL draft prospects to those who’ve come before is a time-tested tradition. Sometimes it’s an exercise in futility, but it never gets any less enjoyable to make the comparisons.

The Chiefs had one of the most iconic finishes in NFL playoff history this past January when they beat the Bills in overtime via a walk-off touchdown. But before that, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught a huge 25-yard pass with less than ten seconds to go in regulation to set up the game-tying field goal. On Thursday, Kelce shared that quarterback Patrick Mahomes almost blew it.

Here’s Where Chiefs WR Skyy Moore Ranks in OROY Poll | Heavy.com

After trading away Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City re-stocked the receiver room by signing JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. But the Chiefs still needed to add a young playmaker on a rookie deal to ensure the offense had a long-term plan at wideout that wasn’t going to break the bank.

Chiefs dead cap: 4 players account for nearly $8 million | Chiefswire

Gone are the days of paying for past contract sins for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Right now, the Chiefs rank near the top of the NFL in effective salary cap space, with $14,755,982 available per Over The Cap. One of the reasons that their cap space is in such a good spot is because they’re not paying out a ton of dead money to players who are no longer on the team. For instance, Kansas City stopped paying for the contract handed out to Eric Berry just last season.

There are always ways to improve as a player and this is a unique opportunity to be in the same room with the most talented individuals to ever play the position and learn from them.”

at the PGA, English golfer Richard Bland had an issue on one of the greens: a squirrel, to be precise … play it where it ends up, just OFF the green … and so it goes

I went to bed it was May. Woke up to March? God is telling me I need to get my indoor projects done?

VOTW. Yesterday I found out I get to shoot 2 fireworks shows again this year. The private show is off this year due to graduations, vacations, etc but I picked up a Country Club shoot. Being how the 4th is on Monday and my other shoot is on Sunday the 3rd, I let it be known I’m free Saturday to shot too! Wink wink!!

I checked the link to the golf digest story about WR Jordan Addison transferring from Pitt to USC. Could somebody please give a thumbnail sketch of the NIL (or post a link to an article on it). I know the landscape has changed re student athletes and sponsorships, but how big a shake-up is this? Oh yeah: that article included a link to a story about John Daly and Little John (a Razorback golfer) being formally sponsored by Hooters – which brings us back to ChiefDog’s blast of caffeine below.

It is a long weekend up here (Victoria Day, named after some long-ago monarch, more commonly known as the May Two-Four weekend). I believe it is the Memorial Day weekend down there, or maybe next weekend? Regardless, here’s my respects for those who served and died.

Victory of the Week: yes, I like this topic, glad Tony revived it last night, does a person good to reflect on successes. Mine is getting the vegetable garden planted over the past week, including having plastic sheets ready to protect the tomato, pepper and cuke transplants from a frost (which did occur two days after getting those transplants in the ground).
