Regrading Kansas City Chiefs’ 2017 NFL Draft picks | Chiefs Wire

The Chiefs, of course, traded up to pick No. 10 to grab Mahomes. They had some idea that he’d turn into a talented player, but little did they know the phenom that he’d turn into after a year of playing backup to Alex Smith. As a starter has crushed NFL and franchise records. He became the league MVP in his first season as a starter, he is the quarterback who brought the Lamar Hunt trophy home and won a Super Bowl title after a 50-year drought. He’s the new face of the National Football League and an exemplary leader. Really there isn’t a letter grade worthy of describing just how good this pick was for Kansas City.

Chiefs’ Mahomes asked Whataburger to come to KC metro. Now that wish is in the works | Kansas City Star

Now a 3,751-square-foot freestanding Whataburger building is being proposed for Douglas Street and St. Luke’s Boulevard in Lee’s Summit.

A preliminary site plan has been drawn up, and Ryan Elam, director of development services for the city of Lee’s Summit, confirmed that Whataburger officials have met with the city to discuss the project. But no official plans have been submitted.

Maybe it’s just because we’re quarantined up, but we’re extra-appreciative these days of the chance to see Hill working out and improving his game. The Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver is already an annual Pro Bowl performer who is known as the single fastest player in the league (and an well-earned nickname of Cheetah). But lately he’s been honing other skills in case he wasn’t already enogh of a danger to take it to the house any time he has the ball in his hands.

As sports face more COVID-19 cases, NFLPA tells players to stop working out together | Kansas City Star

The players’ side believes the league has no legal position to hold this year’s money in escrow. The NFLPA is adamant about borrowing for future years to offset a potential salary cap drop in 2021. To them, flat caps for a few years > giving back money in 2020.

Spoke with @TesslerSports about RB Raheem Mostert and his trade demand from #49ers. His request was simply to bring Mostert in line with the highest paid RBs on the team. Tevin Coleman makes $4.55M in 2020 and that’s where Mostert wants to be. He has two years left on his deal.

I’m the weird one but Whataburger doesn’t ring my bell. I’d love to see White Castle return or even In-n-Out first

In-N-Out isn’t nearly as good as people make it out to be. It’s not horrible, but considering how long you have to wait in line, it defeats what is supposed to make it unique while providing only, possibly, a slightly better product then it’s competition
