Remembering former Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers’ iconic pick-six vs. Raiders | fucktheraiders
One of Flowers’ most iconic interceptions was a pick-six made back in 2011 against the then-Oakland Raiders. Flowers recently joined Chiefs team reporter Matt McMullen and announcer Mitch Holthus on their “Defending The Kingdom” podcast, revealing this to be his favorite play. He broke down the interception and what made it so special to him.
“That was one of my favorite — it has to be my favorite play,” Flowers said of the pick-six. “In uniform, just on the road. Whenever a player plays on the road, it’s just something special about hearing boos and when you make a play, how the crowd just has to look at you. But doing it against the Oakland Raiders? It was just so surreal.”
Chiefs to re-sign RB Jerick McKinnon on one-year deal | chiefswire
According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Chiefs plan to re-sign RB Jerick McKinnon on a one-year deal. Kansas City signed McKinnon to a prove-it deal last season, using the veteran salary benefit to save salary-cap space. That proved to be a good investment for the team in 2021. By season’s end, McKinnon was the team’s lead running back.
Seeing the Chiefs add McKinnon ahead of mandatory minicamp isn’t a huge surprise. PFF recently ranked the team’s RB room among the worst in the NFL. It underscored the need for more competition, which should help make the group stronger heading into the most important part of the offseason.

Chiefs UDFA Spotlight: Virginia OL Chris Glaser | usatoday
A three-star recruit out of Solon High School in Solon, Ohio, Glaser had offers from nearly a dozen different schools including Cincinnati, Toledo, Iowa State and Syracuse. Glaser opted to attend Virginia and saw his decision rewarded by becoming one of 17 true freshman to play for the Cavaliers.
Glaser would continue as a backup through 2018, but by the 2019 college football season he was UVA’s starter at the right guard position. His best year undoubtedly came in 2021 as a super senior, when he helped Virginia set single-season school records in total offense and passing offense.
