Inside K.C. Chiefs’ Derrick Nnadi’s quest to save shelter dogs | ESPN

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/40178717/kansas-city-chiefs-defensive-tackle-derrick-nnadi-rescues-shelter-dogs

Five years of football dominance in Kansas City inspired a spike in dogs named Kelce, and, for the creative types, some feline Catrick Mahomeses. But in Louisburg, Kansas, Shelly Trester and her family went a different route. They named their dog Nnadi.

Derrick Nnadi, a soft-spoken 317-pound defensive tackle for the Kansas City Chiefs, is not one of the splashier names on the team, but he has endeared himself to animal advocates because he rescues dogs. Chiefs coach Andy Reid calls him “the dog whisperer.”

 

 

 

Travis Kelce seeks to be in same stratosphere as NBA legend: ‘Give me as many rings as Jordan’s got, baby’ ” Fox News

https://www.foxnews.com/sports/travis-kelce-seeks-same-stratosphere-nba-legend

It is quite easy to say Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce is going to end up with a bust in the Pro Football Hall of Fame one day. He could retire right now and have all the personal accolades to join the NFL’s greats in Canton, Ohio.

Yet, what keeps Kelce going is not breaking league tight end records, or franchise marks with the Chiefs. An ultimate team player, Kelce, as he is set to enter his 12th NFL season in 2024, wants to cement his legacy in the game much like a legend in another sport did during his heyday.

 

 

 

Chiefs’ Offense Ranked Second-Best in NFL on Recent List | Sports Illustrated

https://www.si.com/nfl/chiefs/gm-report/chiefs-offense-ranked-second-best-in-nfl-on-recent-list

For once, the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense wasn’t the club’s best unit last season. Steve Spagnuolo’s defense outperformed Andy Reid and Matt Nagy’s offense all year long, culminating in a Super Bowl LVIII title.

The offense did find its footing a bit late in the season, though. That momentum is expected to carry into the 2024-25 campaign, especially considering the moves general manager Brett Veach has made in recent months. As a result, one outlet thinks Kansas City should bounce back and be one of football’s most potent attacks moving forward.

 

 

 

Travis Kelce Says He’s ‘So Much More Professional on the Field Now’: ‘It’s More of a Mental Game’ | Yahoo Sports

https://sports.yahoo.com/travis-kelce-says-much-more-193707880.html

As Travis Kelce prepares for his 12th season in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end says he approaches the game differently now.

In an interview on the set of his shoot for Zen Water’s “Find Yours” campaign, Kelce, 34, says, “I’m so much more professional on the field now,” after having been in the league for a decade.

“When I was younger, it was kind of like, just go out here and, man, it’s gonna be a hard practice, you’re gonna be running a lot,” Kelce continues, “and I wouldn’t complain about it, but I would just know it’s gonna be a grind.”

 

 

 

Ranking the top 25 players under 25 entering the 2024 NFL season: Sauce Gardner, C.J. Stroud and more | PFF

10. CB Trent McDuffie, Kansas City Chiefs

After starting his career as an outside cornerback, McDuffie moved inside toward the second half of his rookie season and played mostly in the slot in his second season when the Chiefs had more than two cornerbacks on the field. This move aligned with McDuffie becoming one of the best young cornerbacks in the league and one of the most versatile players at the position.

His 16 total pressures in 2023 led all cornerbacks by a wide margin, and he gave up just nine receiving yards on seven targets in the Super Bowl.

Antonio Brown declared bankruptcy. Rice should pay attention to what happens when you act like an idiot.
