Pre-Camp Reads: D.J. Alexander Custom Chiefs Jersey Returns as “Ace” Special Teamer

The third-year linebacker out of Oregon State was a Pro Bowler last year

The first phone call Kansas City Chiefs linebacker D.J. Alexander made upon learning of his Pro Bowl nomination last January was to his mother Men’s Nike Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Elite Alternate Black Football Jersey and stepfather.

“I called them and said, ‘We’re going to Orlando,’” Alexander explained. “I called [and told] my wife’s parents and all my family members that we’re going to Orlando, and I’m just truly blessed, because without them, there’s no me, so I just have to make sure I thank all my fans and family members and everybody.”

 

Alexander, who is a “core four” special teams guy for the Chiefs and played 358 snaps for Dave Toub’s units last year, was originally a first alternate for the Pro Bowl. But when the New England Patriots and their special teams standout, Matthew Slater, beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC title game Women’s Nike Personalize Kansas City Chiefs Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt to advance to the Super Bowl, the spot opened for Alexander.

It was the first Pro Bowl honor for Alexander, who was known for his special team’s abilities coming out of Oregon State as a fifth-round draft pick in 2015.

“Being able to be (at the Pro Bowl) because of special teams, that just tells you – some of those guys out there Customized Miami Dolphins Jersey that think special teams aren’t as big, don’t let that go to your head, man,” Alexander added. “You have to just give it how you live and just keep working and make your way on the team.”

Over the Custom Dolphins Jersey past two seasons, Alexander leads the Chiefs with 21 solo special teams tackles.

“He’s been solid for the Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey last two years, and he’s been putting up the numbers,” Toub said last January of Alexander, while using the term ‘Ace.’

“It’s something that’s well-deserved. We’re really proud of him.”

Alexander also played 48 snaps at inside linebacker for the Chiefs defense last year, most of which came after the season-ending injury to veteran Derrick Johnson in Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders.

Alexander made the first start of his career that next week against the Tennessee Titans, and he finished with four tackles.

Quotable:

“I treated him like a dad, and he treated me like a son from a very young age,” Alexander, who was born D.J. Welch, explained of Custom Chiefs Jersey his relationship with his stepfather. “Growing up, I always wanted to give him his credit or his due. I talked to my mom about wanting to change my last name.

“I thought college, once I started playing and started kind of establishing a name for myself in football, I said, ‘This is a perfect time to acknowledge him for all that he’s done for me to get me where I am today.’”

2017 Outlook:

The inside linebacker position will be one of the most interesting Custom Jaguars Jersey groups to watch at training camp this year.

The Chiefs know what they have in Johnson—the franchise’s all-time leading tackler who is entering his 13th NFL season. Johnson has consistently stated that he’ll be ready by the time camp gets here.

 

It’ll be a big year for Alexander, who is hoping to make a similar transition as fellow special teams’ standout Daniel Sorensen, who has found a niche on Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey the defense as the “dime” linebacker. Sorensen began as a key special teamer before finding a role on the defense.

In any case, Alexander provides depth at linebacker and has proven to be one of the league’s best special teams players.

10 Things to Know About New Custom Jaguars Jersey Chiefs GM Brett Veach

Here’s what you need to know about the new guy leading the personnel department

The Kansas City Chiefs announced Monday afternoon the hiring of Brett Veach as their new general manager.

“After a comprehensive search process, I am pleased to announce that we have hired Brett Veach to serve as the next general manager of the Chiefs,” Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a release. “Brett has a sharp football mind, a tremendous work ethic and a keen eye for finding talent.

“Over the last four seasons, he’s played a critical role in building our football team. I look forward to working with him to continue to build on the strong foundation we have in place.”

Here are 10 things to know about Veach:

1. Veach was a standout running back at a powerhouse Pennsylvania high school program

Veach attended Mount Carmel High School in Pennsylvania and was named the Associated Press Small School Player of the Year in 1996.

As a senior, Veach helped Mount Carmel finish with an undefeated record (15-0) and a state championship by rushing for 2,163 yards with 26 touchdowns.Men’s Nike Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Elite Alternate Black Football Jersey.

He was twice named to the All-State team.

2. Veach played collegiately at Delaware with Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy

As a four-year letter-winner, Veach caught 99 passes for 1,470 yards and 12 touchdowns in his career at Delaware (1998-2001). He also left as the school’s all-time leader in kickoff return yards (1,558).

Veach earned a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education, and a master’s degree in education from Delaware. Along the way, he also earned three Atlantic 10 Conference All-Academic honors.

Nagy played quarterback at Delaware from 1997-2000.

3. Veach never played Nagy in high school but was familiar with him before college

“I knew of [Nagy] through his days at Manheim High School because our high schools were so close to each other Custom Jaguars Jersey,” Veach explained. “So, when I got to Delaware, it was natural just to relate to him. Matt’s one of those guys that because of where we’re from – we were brought up in state and town where football is everything—from the day that I met him, I felt like I’ve known him my entire life.

“When you grow up in central Pennsylvania as we did, that’s the pride and joy of that state. Not to say that there’s not great football in Florida and Texas, but in central Pennsylvania and really the state of Pennsylvania, when you’re young, the only thing you want to do is go with your parents to a high Women’s Nike Personalize Kansas City Chiefs Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt school football game.

“I remember being as young as four or five years old and going to games with my dad and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I think that Matt was the exact same way. In fact, I know that it’s all he ever wanted to do. Listen, it doesn’t mean that you can play in the NFL, but you know that in some way that football is engrained in you from an early age. Whether it’s as player, coach or personnel Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey guy, it’s basically who you are. It’s in your blood where it’s going to be a part of your life.”

4. Veach first made a name for himself as an area scout with the Eagles

Veach first entered the NFL as a training camp intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004. He was hired to a full-time position as coach Andy Reid’s assistant three years later.

In 2010, Veach was promoted from coach Andy Reid’s assistant—a position he held from 2007-09—to a pro and college scout.

Just a year later, Veach got the opportunity to serve as the Eagles’ Southeast Regional Scout. He held that position for two years (2011-12) before joining Reid in Kansas City.

During his time as an area scout, Veach was responsible for scouting the likes of defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, whom the Eagles selected with the No. 12 Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey overall pick in 2012 out of Mississippi State.

Cox has earned two All-Pro honors (2014-15) so far in his career.

5. Veach Custom Dolphins Jersey once spoke about the opportunity to come to Kansas City

The opportunity to join coach Andy Reid in Kansas City wasn’t just about following a familiar face; the structure of the personnel department was something that had also piqued his interest.

Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey think one thing that we do here which is really cool is we kind of cross-train,” Veach said back in 2015. “A lot of our pro guys help out on the college side, and then vice-versa, where a lot of our college guys will be asked for our input on the pro side. So, there’s constant communication and back-and-forth in regards to strengths and weaknesses of where we can improve the team.

“I have a dual role where I do some college and some pro, so it’s kind of a unique opportunity. I help out during the free agency period and the cut-down days with the pro side and then hit the road during the fall for college.”Youth Nike Custom Made Kansas City Chiefs Elite Red Team Color NFL Jersey.

6. Veach had previously served as Co-Director of Player Personnel

This will be Veach’s fifth year with the Chiefs and 11th year in the National Football League. He was promoted to Co-Director of Player Personnel before the 2015 season, and before that served as the Chiefs’ Pro and College Personnel Analyst (2013-14).

Before joining the Chiefs in 2013, Veach spent six years with the Philadelphia Eagles in a variety of roles.

7. Veach is married with three kids

Veach and his wife, Alison, have a daughter, Ella, and twin sons, Elijah and Wylan.

8. Back in 2015, Veach shared his philosophy on the personnel business

“I think whatever you do in life, everything is a people business,” Veach said. “It’s all about establishing your relationships. I think the ability to go out on the road, meet new people, talk football, learn a little bit about the different areas and cultures and traditions, that’s a really cool thing.

“And then having the opportunity to see a young man, and their abilities at a certain stage, and then project in your mind what they could be for your team, I think that’s what draws you in the most.”

9. Veach will report directly to Hunt on all player personnel matters.

Along with President Mark Donovan and head coach Andy Reid, Veach will report directly to Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt.

“My family and I would like to extend our gratitude to Clark and the Hunt family for this incredible opportunity,” Veach said in the press release. “I am humbled and honored to serve as the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. Over the last four seasons, I’ve had the privilege to work alongside Andy Reid, John Dorsey and a great group of coaches and personnel staff.

Pre-Camp Reads: The Chiefs’ Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey “Secret Superstar” Mitch Morse

The third-year center had an exciting offseason

Mitch Morse has anchored the middle of the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey since the day he first stepped onto an NFL field.

The 2015 second-round draft pick was recently named the “secret superstar” by Pro Football Focus.

The offseason was also memorable for Morse, but this time it’s nothing to do with football.

In March, Morse proposeCustom Chiefs Jersey to his Mizzou sweetheart in San Francisco on the Lyon Street Steps.

“My heads on straight, had a great offseason and I’m ready to get the season Customized Miami Dolphins Jersey going,” Morse said.Men’s Nike Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Elite Alternate Black Football Jersey.

 

Quotable:

Recently, Morse explains how a successful offensive line comes down Custom Kansas City Chiefs Jersey to chemistry.

“You can never perfect continuity, so we’re always focused on being perfect. We might have the grand scheme of how to work with one another; now we’re working on tiny nuances of how to complement each other’s play and really focusing on how our technique can better help protect the quarterback, get the run game going and scoring touchdowns.”Women’s Nike Personalize Kansas City Chiefs Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt.

Season Review:

According to Pro Football Focus , Morse had a pass block efficiency of 98.4 last season, which ranked seventh-best among centers.

He didn’t allow a sack all season and surrendered a total of 14 pressures in more than 1,000 snaps including the playoffs.

The third-year center has only missed a single game over his first two seasons in the league.

When asked about his performance from last year, Morse didn’t take it easy on himself despite not allowing a sack all year.

“There are games and plays that were exceptional, and then on the same drive you’ll wonder if I’ve ever played football before,” Morse explained. “So, right now, coach told me it’s just about consistency and focusing on being Men’s Nike Custom Made Miami Dolphins Elite Aqua Green Team Color NFL Jersey more vocal.”

 

2017 Outlook:

It’s rare for any team to continue to start the same five players along the line year after year, but the Chiefs are set-up to do just that with all five starters returning.

This allows the line to keep focusing on its continuity to provide the team what it needs to move forward.

“Part of being an offensive lineman is continuity, and the only way we can do that is if we play together. We’re just looking to build on that, look forward and compete for the championship this year Custom Jaguars Jersey,” Morse added.Youth Nike Custom Made Kansas City Chiefs Elite Red Team Color NFL Jersey.

Pre-Camp Reads: Marcus Peters is Among Custom Texans Jersey,Custom Packers Jersey,Custom Colts Jersey the Best in the League

The third-year cornerback was named a first-team All-Pro last season

It didn’t take long for Marcus Peters to become a household name in the National Football League. After leading the league with eight interceptions in 2015 en route to a Defensive Rookie of the Year Award, Peters emphatically avoided the age-old sophomore slump in 2016, being named a first-team All-Pro.

Peters’ 2016 success is as simple as looking at his “thrown-at” numbers. According to Pro Football Focus, Peters was thrown at 87 times in 2016, after he was “thrown-at” a league-high 137 times in 2015. Despite the sharp dip in tries, Peters still managed a second-best six picks in 2016.

Peters was named the 32nd best player in the league on this year’s version of NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2017.

“Marcus Peters has been catching the ball like nobody’s business since he got in the league” Seahawks cornerback Richard Custom Colts Jersey Sherman said on Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale the program.

“Just somehow the ball always seems to fall in his lap,” Bears wideout Markus Wheaton added. “That’s definitely the sign of being a good corner.”

Quotable:

Peters, after playful back-and-forth exchanges with Alex Smith during offseason Customized Green Bay Packers Jersey minicamp: “That’s football baby. We’re getting back Custom Texans Jersey into the swing of it, we’re here for a couple days before we’ve got to be back at camp. We’ve Customized Indianapolis Colts Jersey got a mentality – we’re trying to win the Super Bowl – it’s going to be high.”

 

2016 Season Review:

If there were any doubts after his rookie campaign, Peters silenced those critics in 2016 by performing at an even higher level and being named a first-team All-Pro.Men’s Nike Custom Made Indianapolis Colts Elite Team Color Royal Blue NFL Jersey.

His final stat line: 45 tackles, (35 solo) 20 passes defensed and six interceptions in 15 games played.

2017 Season Outlook:

If it’s true that NFL players don’t peak until their late 20s, the 24-year-old Peters could actually continue to improve as he heads into 2017, which is hard to believe given his incredible first two seasons.

The Chiefs have one of the best cornerbacks in the entire Customized Houston Texans Jersey league in Peters, and he seems determined to make a championship run this season.

“Super Bowl,” he said. “That’s the ultimate respect you get in this game – win a Men’s Nike Custom Made Houston Texans Elite Team Color Navy Blue Football Jersey Cheap championship. That’s a team goal. All the individual goals, they’re good. The reason I’m doing my job is for my team so we can win more games.”

Pre-Camp Reads: Terrance Customized Indianapolis Colts Jersey Mitchell Ready for Opportunity

The fourth-year cornerback stepped up last year

One of the top stories for the Kansas City Chiefs last year was the play of cornerback Terrance Mitchell, who ranked among the top players in the league over the final few weeks of the regular season.

From Week 13 to the end of the year, Mitchell had five passes defensed, which ranked fifth in the league, and opposing quarterbacks completed just 45.5 percent (15 of 33) of passes thrown in his direction, which ranked 10th.

The quarterback rating when testing Mitchell was just 58.8, which ranked just Women’s Nike Custom Made Green Bay Packers Elite Team Color NFL Football Jersey Sale behind the Denver Broncos’ standout duo of Chris Harris and Aqib Talib.

Before last year, Mitchell, who was a seventh-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 out of Oregon, had only played 130 defensive snaps in his career.

 

In fact, Mitchell had already been released seven times in his young career, including twice by the Chiefs, before he had a chance to start a game and show everyone his abilities.

Here’s the transaction list for Mitchell since he first entered the NFL in 2014: Men’s Nike Custom Made Indianapolis Colts Elite Team Color Royal Blue NFL Jersey.

Originally entered NFL as seventh-round pick (254th overall) by Cowboys in 2014 NFL Draft

Mitchell, who finished the year with 239 snaps played, got the first start of his career on December 8 against the Oakland Raiders, and he was outstanding.Men’s Nike Custom Made Houston Texans Elite Team Color Navy Blue Football Jersey Cheap.

 

HerCustom Packers Jerseye’s what Pro Football Focus had to say after Mitchell’s performance against the Raiders:

“The former seventh-round pick dominated Customized Houston Texans Jersey. He was targeted seven times on the day, yielding only three catches for 14 yards. Mitchell capped it off with the game-ending pass breakup in one of the most impressive cornerback performances all season.”

Quotable:

With that experience last year, Mitchell gained confidence—something coach Andy Reid said has carried over to this offseason.

“He’s more confident than when he got here, even though he was pretty good then,” Reid explained of Mitchell during OTAs. “He’s a very good athlete, and he was thrown into the fire last season, and he did a pretty good job.

“Now, people have had an opportunity to study him, so we’ll find out. He understands that so we’ll work through the challenge.”

“The more reps and the more experience you can get, it definitely makes you more and more confident,” Mitchell explained. “Just Customized Green Bay Packers Jersey being out there gives me more confidence. I thank the coaches for just giving me the opportunity.

“With all the places I’ve been in my career, going up against all the different kinds of receivers I’ve faced, I always knew I could play; I just had to wait for my opportunity.”

2017 Outlook:

From facing guys like the Houston Texans’ DeAndre Hopkins, the Dallas Custom Colts Jersey Cowboys’ Dez Bryant or the former Chicago Bear and now Philadelphia Eagles receiver, Alshon Jeffrey, Mitchell had gone up against some of the league’s best players at practice on a consistent basis before he came to the Chiefs.

He took those opportunities and made sure he’d be ready if he were ever given his own opportunity to step on the field in a real game, which finally came last year.

 

With a defensive backs room with guys like Marcus Peters and Eric Berry, along with Ron Parker, Daniel Sorensen and Steve Nelson, there’s plenty of experience returning for the Chiefs secondary.

For Mitchell, the question at training camp will be whether he can continue to build upon what he showed at the end of last season.

If he can, the Chiefs defense will be the better for it, and the story of what Mitchell has gone through to get to where he is will add another great chapter to an already-intriguing book.

Veteran Linebacker Josh Mauga Customized Green Bay Packers Jersey Returns to the Chiefs
