Chiefs’ Sammy Watkins: ‘We’re for Sure Going Back-to-Back This Year’ | B/R

“You have the best head coach, you have the best quarterback, one of the best wide receiver groups ever,” Watkins argued. “Now with the young guy [Clyde Edwards-Helaire], we have one of the best running back groups. Best tight end. What makes Stephen A. think that we can’t go out there and win three or four in a row.”

“I sat my agent down, and we was trying to shoot for these big (contract) numbers. And I’m like, ‘Man, let’s just take heed of winning. I’ve been on a winning team within three years. I know how it felt to win. Shoot, I’d rather win another championship than go get another whatever type of crazy extension or crazy contract.”

2) Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

We know the Chiefs are going to score points with Patrick Mahomes running the attack. However, the selection of Edwards-Helaire with the final pick in Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft shows how serious the Chiefs are about improving their running game. Kansas City’s run blocking might not be as good as it was in 2017, when then-rookie Kareem Hunt rushed for a league-high 1,327 yards, but Edwards-Helaire appears to be just as talented as Hunt both on the ground and as a pass catcher. While Damien Williams is still very much in the mix for his share of playing time at running back, CEH should step into a starter’s role with loads of touches headed his way.

Chiefs announce reduced-capacity seating for at least the “first few games” of 2020 | PFT

As a result of the decision, the team will issue refunds for all single-game ticket purchases for 2020. As to season-ticket holders, their payments for 2020 will be retained, and they will be able to purchase via the accrued credit single-game tickets for seats available under the new configuration. Season-ticket holders may alternatively choose to receive a full refund for 2020, opting out of the ability to purchase any 2020 game tickets while retaining their rights and tenure for 2021.

ESPN survey names George Kittle as NFL’s best tight end over Travis Kelce | AA

Between Kelce and Kittle, 49 of the first-place votes were given out and for good reason. Both players have been named to multiple Pro Bowls, although Kelce holds a substantial lead here but that’s a given due to his much-longer tenure in the NFL as a player. Kittle has made the last two Pro Bowls which Kelce has made five consecutive Pro Bowl rosters. In 2018, Kelce was the first-team All-Pro while Kittle was secnod-team. In 2019, they swapped positions.

Congrats man. I just had my first 2 weeks ago. It’s awesome. My wife was in her first trimester I believe when the chiefs won the superbowl. It’s been a good year.

Awesome news, not much better than parenthood. I’m not one to cry much but sure did at the birth of each of my 3 kids. Big sacrifice but 100 times more of a blessing.

CONGRATULATIONS
