Tyreek Hill ranked as PFF’s top WR on downfield targets since 2006 | ChiefsWire

PFF recently shared their highest-graded receivers since 2006 on targets downfield of 20 or more yards. Hill, of course, was the only player to receive a 99.9 grade and he faced some stout competition. He’s up there ahead of players like Julio Jones, A.J. Green and DeSean Jackson who were all premier receivers in the NFL at the height of their careers.

Ravens are the toughest defense KC Chiefs will face in 2020 | KCKingdom

They added big-time defensive linemen like Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe in free agency. Then they added linebackers Patrick Queen and Malik Harrison in the draft. They already have one of the most stellar secondary groups in the league. This unit has the potential to overtake the Patriots as the top defense in the NFL.

Chris Jones, Chiefs remain at stalemate in contract talks | PFT

The Chiefs want Jones with them long term, but COVID has created uncertainty with the salary cap for 2021, and according to Palmer, some clarity from the league before July 15 could help. That’s the deadline the team faces to get a contract completed or Jones will play 2020 under the one-year franchise tag.

Report: 2021 salary cap holding up negotiations between Chiefs, Chris Jones | ChiefsWire

According to a new report from NFL Network’s James Palmer, there hasn’t been much traction on a contract with Jones because the Chiefs don’t yet know how financial losses related to COVID-19 will impact the salary cap in 2021. The NFL has yet to provide the necessary clarity that would allow the team to come to an agreement on a long-term extension with Jones. Basically, were they to agree to an extension, they’d be doing so without knowing what their financial future holds. That’s what we call bad business, especially with a long-term extension for star QB Patrick Mahomes also around the corner.

2020 NFL Draft signing tracker for first-round picks: Contract details for top 32 picks as they’re reported | CBSSports

[CEH] It was a coup by the Chiefs to not only figure out how to create cap space this offseason to retain key talent from their Super Bowl run in 2019, but to also keep more than 20 of their in-house free agents on board, freeing them up to have very little need going into the draft. That being the case, they made a mostly luxury pick with Edwards-Helaire, who gives them a solid complement to Damien Williams after parting ways with LeSean McCoy

[Thornhill] Tyrann Mathieu is obviously the heart and soul of this Chiefs defense, but Thornhill can lay claim to some other essential organ. His rookie season produced three picks, an opposing completion percentage below 50, significant snaps at free safety, box safety and slot cornerback, and five pass breakups. In Steve Spagnuolo’s defense, safeties have to be cerebral and versatile, and Thornhill fits the bill.

[CEH] The Chiefs should get a better idea of how they can use Edwards-Helaire during the preseason. He is a capable runner and receiver—he had 1,414 rushing yards and 453 receiving yards last season.

Chiefs’ 90-man offseason roster by jersey number | ChiefsWire

There are 90 players on the offseason roster and while the Chiefs have quite a few returning players, they also have some new faces vying to make the team. It won’t be easy to crack a Super Bowl-winning roster, especially given with the unique offseason during the coronavirus pandemic. Still, it’s worth getting to know all of the players because they’ll have their chance at the end of July and throughout August to prove they have what it takes to make the team.

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.

Happy birthday to the @Ravens CB! 🎂 (via @NFLFilms)

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.

Yesterday I speculated that CJ95’s contract negotiation was stalled and 2:15PM’s deal was going to have to get done first, but this makes even more sense. with the ’21 cap up in the air, it’s just hard to negotiate a high-end contract.

Might just have to check out the new stadium in LA when our guys are here. Looks expensive though.

I was going to go to the Raiders game, cheap flights to Vegas and everything, but the tickets this year are outlandish. I figure they will even out in a year or two.

Cowturd also thinks the Ravens will go 16-0 this year…I’m not sure I’ve seen any non-Ravens fan go so gaga for them like he has.
