Good morning AG!

Today in Chiefs’ history: Charlie Getty born in 1952, Mo Moorman in 1944 (He threw the key “trap” block on the famous touchdown play in the game, “65 Toss Power Trap.”).

Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes paying no mind to rising quarterback market | Chiefswire

“When I signed my deal, I knew I was going to be pretty set for life regardless of what the market kind of happens,” Mahomes said. “But you just keep playing. Money is one thing, but when you get those Super Bowl rings, at the end of your career I think that’s going to be what you look back upon. I think I’ve made enough money from the football field and then obviously off of it as well, that it won’t matter at the end of the day.”

Justyn Ross’ injury woes continue | Clemsonwire

“It was a little bit off of the surgery he had before. It wasn’t functioning quite the way (he wanted),” Reid said. “It was bothering him. It wasn’t working quite the way he wanted it, so they went in and re-did it. And we’re hoping this works out well.”

KC Chiefs hit practice field under heat advisory, and it affected at least one player | Kansas City Star

https://sports.yahoo.com/kc-chiefs-hit-practice-field-184128479.html

During 7-on-7 red zone drills midway through practice, Chenal appeared to be affected by the heat and had to leave the field. The linebacker received attention from a team trainer, who draped a wet towel over Chenal’s head, before riding off the field to the training facility in the passenger seat of a cart.

This Chiefs rookie got in extra training with Patrick Mahomes. Here’s what he learned | Kansas City Star

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-rookie-got-extra-training-182519214.html

“I think it’ll just help jump-start him to kind of help contribute as fast as possible,” Mahomes said. “Because at the end of the day, he’s a rookie coming in having to learn a ton, but he has a lot of talent, and we want to make sure whenever the season comes around, he’s ready to go.”

Chiefs waive WR Mathew Sexton from injured reserve | Chiefswire

The Chiefs had signed Sexton back in January to a reserve/future deal. An undrafted free agent out of Eastern Michigan, Sexton played for The Spring League’s Aviators in 2021 and was later signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He participated in a couple preseason games in 2021 but has not yet seen any NFL regular season action.

Three Instant Classics on the Chiefs’ 2022 Schedule | SI

https://www.si.com/nfl/chiefs/gm-report/kc-chiefs-game-of-the-year-candidates-in-2022-nfl-season#gid=ci02a6ded7f001269b&pid=usatsi_16931688_168390306_lowres

It would take a lot for a regular season game to be nominated as a “Best Game” candidate, but a few years ago in Mahomes’s first season as a starter, the Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams had an instant classic on Monday Night Football that ended in a 54-51 victory for LA. Could we see another regular-season classic this year? Three games on the Chiefs’ 2022 schedule sure appear to be poised for greatness.

Counting down the Chiefs’ most targeted receivers by season | Chiefswire

But in the 2020s, the air attack reigns supreme, and without the benefit of one of their all-time great deep threats in 2022, Kansas City will have to adjust to maintain their breakneck pace towards dynasty status. Six players have dominated their single-season leaderboard for most targets over the years; could the one who is currently rostered crack the list this season?

Injury updates

  • On the sideline: As expected, cornerback Rashad Fenton (shoulder) and offensive lineman Lucas Niang (knee) were spotted working through their injuries off to the side. Offensive lineman Prince Tega Wanogho was also off to the side working through what head coach Andy Reid described as a “leg issue.”
  • Left early: Linebacker Leo Chenal left practice shortly before its conclusion due to what appeared to be exhaustion from the heat.
  • Other: Defensive lineman Kehinde Oginni Hassan was in attendance but did not practice so he could have a blood test, per Reid.

Two takeaways from this morning’s Chiefs training camp practice (they’re not in pads yet): – Second-year WR Cornell Powell had velcro-like hands, catching virtually everything during 7-on-7 drills, including two nifty leaping grabs.

– Jody Fortson is Jody Fortson. Looked great.

Day two of Chiefs minicamp in the books and the cold front is moving in. Started practice at 79 degrees, still there 86 minutes later at the end. Big day for Cornell Powell on the field.

I wouldn’t expect him until next week at the earliest. I expect him to at least hold out that first week out of principle

  1. Chiefs coach Andy Reid and QB Patrick Mahomes both discussed the Orlando Brown Jr. situation. They both seem to be positive that Brown is still on board with the team and that a deal will be reached with the left tackle sometime in the future. This sort of contradicts an earlier, questionable report that the team is frustrated with Brown over the extension talks.

I’m not saying he doesn’t want to play with the team, I’m saying I suspect he’ll just sit out the first week a camp, which really doesn’t amount to much, out of principle. He threatened to sit out if he didn’t get the contract he wanted. Obviously he didn’t get the one he wanted, so for his threats to be worth anything next year, he has to back this years up. I don’t think it will be anything significant, just enough so he can “see, I told you so”

Ryan Tracy also thinks Brown will be in camp soon. But Andy Reid will also make a point about having other guys that are going to compete for LT in his absence.

I really hope Ross can stay healthy and we can hide him until he does.
Happy Sunday everyone.
Off for a 6 hour drive to a wedding. Niece/Goddaughter. Otherwise, no way I’d be going.

5 stars to thwart our friend
