Good morning AG!

Today in Chiefs history, nothing, same for news.

10 biggest salary cap hits for the Chiefs in 2022 | Chiefswire

The Kansas City Chiefs’ salary cap situation is in a much healthier position now compared to this time last year. The team is currently projected to have over $14 million in cap space with 90 players under contract for the 90-man offseason roster.

Actors David Koechner, Eric Stonestreet reflect on Chiefs’ 2021 postseason | Chiefswire

We’re going to be in every game that’s meaningful for the foreseeable future. So while that game hurt a lot, reload, baby. We’re ready this year. Let’s do it.”

Analyst ‘Wouldn’t Be Surprised’ if Chiefs Make Late Addition at Area of Need | Heavy.com

That mention of Ingram sparked the theory that Veach isn’t done adding pass rushers. It may not happen until the trade deadline — like last year — but KC shouldn’t hesitate to acquire a veteran here if recent draft picks like Joshua Kaindoh and Karlaftis don’t have as strong of an impact out of the gates.

Ex-Chiefs $45 Million Defender Named Brett Veach’s Biggest Free Agent Miss | Heavy.com

 “Did Hitchens play like a top-15 linebacker in Kansas City? To me, he did not. The Chiefs do owe a lot to him for the leadership role he played but he was not worth the contract he signed for the Chiefs in terms of on-field production alone.”

How Noah Gray and Cornell Powell Can Break Through in Year Two | SI

https://www.si.com/nfl/chiefs/gm-report/can-kc-chiefs-te-noah-gray-and-wr-cornell-powell-find-playing-time-in-year-two#gid=ci02a48f43200024f9&pid=usatsi_17393797_168390306_lowres

Gray didn’t produce much in his rookie season. He finished the year with seven catches for 36 yards and one touchdown. There weren’t a ton of targets for him, as the best tight end in the NFL, Travis Kelce, is still at the top of the depth chart. Blake Bell was the number two, so Gray was a bit lost in the mix during his rookie year, and it might be more of the same for Gray in 2022.

Chiefs UDFA Spotlight: Ole Miss RB Jerrion Ealy | Chiefswire

Like most undrafted players, special teams will play a big role in whether Ealy makes the 53-man roster in Kansas City. He’s actually one of the few players with extensive special teams experience during his college days, playing kick returner for Rebels in each of his three seasons there.

Holy shit, that’s some hard hitting analysis. You know I hear that a man that drops his wallet shouldn’t hesitate to pick it back up

It wasn’t you I was critiquing. It was the idiots that are calling themselves analysts and then put that shit out.

Cool. I was hoping that was the case. Just making sure you weren’t thinking I was making some backhanded comment at you. Context is often lost in text.

because Da Raiders …. of course

Former Las Vegas Raiders employees have alleged that the organization enabled a toxic culture of harassment and a hostile work environment

One woman who used to work for the Raiders called the organization a “boys club and the Mob wrapped in one.”

have to disagree with the Hitchens hot taek … in my mind he was worth every penny spent to teach Willie Gay and Nick Bolton how to play at the NFL level

and yanno what? Veach would agree with me: if the guy wasn’t worth what he was paying, he woulda been cut or restructured or whatever

and look: Honey Badger got a hefty sum but HE didn’t play at all that super high level either (esp 2021) … there were tackles he missed (some by a wide margin) … it’s ok, ain’t NOBODY perfect out there, including HB Hill Hitchens and yes, Mahomes

happy sunday kids

Watkins was the biggest miss. There were other receivers we could have paid that money to that would have been on the field more.
