Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs history, something surely happened. On to the news!

Second week of OTAs is here! | Chiefs Wire

The Kansas City Chiefs begin their second group of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) starting on Tuesday, May 31. They’ll have three practices in total this week after beginning Phase 3 of the offseason program with two OTAs last week. In total, there will be 10 individual OTA practices, assuming Andy Reid doesn’t cancel the last session. He’s done that in past years, depending on how the practice week goes.

Chiefs’ Options to Replace Mathieu | Football Outsiders

Free-agent acquisition Justin Reid will take Mathieu’s place in the lineup, but rarely rushes the passer and isn’t suited to a slot coverage role. Juan Thornhill has the tools to slide down into the box more often but is no Honey Badger, particularly in man coverage. Second-round pick Bryan Cook is toolsy and tough but inexperienced and just mistake-prone enough to break the Chiefs’ heart by biting on a double move in a playoff shootout. Lanky cornerback-turned-safety-turned-cornerback-turned-whatever Lonnie Johnson, acquired in a trade with the Texans, is also in the mix. Johnson can cover big slot receivers but that’s his only Badger-like quality.

Analyst Projects Historic Contract Extension for Chiefs LT Orlando Brown Jr. |

Taking into consideration that Kansas City gave up significant draft capital to trade for Brown last offseason, coupled with the contracts that some of the premier left tackles in the NFL have earned over the past year, Charles Goldman of the Chiefs Wire came up with a projection for a Brown extension.

Kansas City Chiefs’ first-round defensive end George Karlaftis is ‘relentless’ |

“He goes 100 miles an hour,” coach Andy Reid said after a recent practice session. “Walk-throughs, everything. We had to slow him down.

He moves around well when he’s in space. He’s got good hands, it looks like … but that motor is probably the thing that jumps out at you. He goes and goes.”

Chiefs HC Andy Reid underdog in 2022 NFL Coach of the Year odds | Chiefs Wire

Chargers HC Brendan Staley is the favorite alongside Giants HC Brian Daboll with +1300 odds. Reid has +3000 odds alongside coaches like Ron Rivera, Kliff Kingsbury, Robert Salah and Dennis Allen.

In his history as an NFL head coach, Reid has only ever won the Coach of the Year award once. That came in 2002 with the Philadelphia Eagles, when he led the team to a 12-4 record and the NFC Championship Game.

Travis Kelce bests George Kittle in PFF’s tight end rankings | chiefswire

Kelce finished the 2021 regular season with 92 receptions for 1,125 yards and nine touchdowns. He also posted his longest catch-and-run (69 yards vs. Chargers) since the 2016 NFL season when he had an 80-yard touchdown reception against the Broncos. He’s shown no sign of slowing down, recording his sixth consecutive season of over 1,000 receiving yards.

Careful what you ” Axe ” For … I asked in The OT last night : “What would a Orlando Brown Contract look like ? … “…From the Above Article ;

” What could a contract extension between the Chiefs and Brown Jr. look like? A five-year, $105 million extension with $72 million guaranteed would hit all of the benchmarks that Brown and a future agent will likely be looking for.”

( I say, I say That thar’s a Whole Lotta Cheddah !!! … ; )
