Previewing Kansas City Chiefs OTAs: Looking at the Running Backs

Checking out the Chiefs’ running backs competing during OTAs

For just the second time in his five years leading the personnel side of the Kansas
Personalized New York Yankees Jersey City Chiefs, general manager John Dorsey selected a running back in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Chiefs even moved up to select Kareem Hunt— Toledo’s all-time leading rusher with 4,945 yards and 44 touchdowns—in the third round after trading fourth, and seventh round picks.

Hunt, the 5-feet-11, 216-pound playmaker, was the first running back selected by
Men’s New York Yankees Authentic Personalized Navy Blue BP Jersey Sale Dorsey and the Chiefs since Knile Davis in 2013.

 

Hunt joins a running backs group that’s led by veteran fullback Anthony Sherman, along with Lamar Miller Jersey Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West.

Ware and West have taken the lion’s share of the carries for the Chiefs over the past couple of seasons with Jamaal Charles missing Jaelen Strong Jersey considerable time with injuries.

One interesting storyline to follow this offseason is the development and utilization of second-year playmaker Tyreek Hill out of the backfield.

Despite carrying the ball just 24 times, Hill averaged more than 11 yards per
Women’s Personalized Stitched Any Name Any Number Baltimore Orioles Home White Jersey carry and scored three touchdowns.

Here’s a look at the production from the Chiefs’ running backs as a group last
Personalized Baltimore Orioles Jersey year:

Last year, the Chiefs kept five running backs on the 53-man roster coming out of
Men’s Baltimore Orioles Alternate Orange Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey the preseason.

Checking out the Chiefs’ receivers competing during OTAs

It was one of the most surprising and intriguing storylines from the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2016 season—the emergence of rookie fifth-round pick Tyreek Hill, who
Custom Astros Jersey ultimately led the Chiefs’ receivers with 61 receptions for
Men’s Authentic Personalized Houston Astros Commemorative 50th Year Alternate Orange Jersey 593 yards and six touchdowns.

The production was welcomed in the receiver’s room with veteran Jeremy
Youth Authentic Custom Houston Astros Home White Commemorative 50th Anniversary Patch Jersey Maclin missing a chunk of time during the year with a groin injury.

Hill proved to be one of the NFL’s elite young playmakers by displaying electric
Personalized Houston Astros Jersey speed and a game-changing ability every time he touched the ball.

Not even eight games into his NFL career, Hill already found himself on Dante-Hall-level status for Chiefs fans when it comes to feeling like he’s going to break
Men’s Authentic Customized Minnesota Twins Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap off a huge play at any given moment.

Consequently, the expectations for Hill are only going to grow moving forward.

Maclin, as he did last year, led a young group of receivers training in Kansas City this offseason. Joining Maclin, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley this year was Hill,
Custom Twins Jersey who seems to be doing what he needs to take that next step in 2017.

Overall, every receiver who played a snap for the Chiefs last year is set to return
Personalized Minnesota Twins Jersey this season.

Here’s a look at the snap counts and production from the Chiefs’ receivers last year:

Last year, the Chiefs kept six receivers on the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason. There are also 10 spots available on the practice squad, which the

Custom Yankees Jersey Eric Murray and Chiefs DBs Visit The Children’s Place

The Children’s Place is the beneficiary of this year’s Chiefs Charity Game

Second-year defensive back Eric Murray and the defensive backs group visited
Custom Yankees Jersey The Children’s Place in Kansas City on Tuesday afternoon.

Murray ran the children in attendance through Play 60 activities.Men’s New York Yankees Authentic Personalized Navy Blue BP Jersey Sale.

“It was fun,” Murray said. “We did the ladder drills. I was just trying to show them ladder drills because, in football, people care about the feet. You have to
Personalized New York Yankees Jersey have pretty feet. It translates here and there, but just showing them basic fundamentals and having fun with them. I did the little bunny ear one. That’s an exercise that we do, but it’s relevant.”

The Children’s Place, according to its website, nurtures and promotes the healthy
Custom Orioles Jersey development of young children who have survived abuse, neglect and trauma by providing specialized services and family support,
Men’s Authentic Customized New York Yankees Home White Stitched Jersey within a safe and caring environment.

This is the third and final year the Children’s Place will be the beneficiary of the
Personalized Baltimore Orioles Jersey Chiefs Charity Game, which in its first Women’s Personalized Stitched Any Name Any Number Baltimore Orioles Home White Jersey two years, has already raised $1.47 million for the organization.

“Chosen as the beneficiary of the Chiefs Charity Game has been a game-changer for us,” The Children’s Place’s CEO and director, Ann Thomas, said. “As the recipients, we are going to be taking this money and expanding what we do in this facility, so it will allow us to reach more children and provide a more quality-based facility to do the services.”

This year’s charity game takes place on Friday night, August 11, when the Chiefs host the San Francisco 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium for their first preseason

Previewing Kansas City Chiefs OTAs: Custom Astros Jersey 18 DBs Set to Take the Field

Here’s what you need to know about the Chiefs’ defensive backs competing during OTAs

Since 2013, the Kansas City Chiefs have played 64 regular season games, and over
Custom Astros Jersey that time, the defense has allowed an opposing team to throw for more than 250 yards in the pass-happy NFL on just 20 occasions, which is fourth-fewest in the league during that stretch.

The NFL average is 28 games.

Overall, the Chiefs have allowed just 232 yards passing per game over that time,
Men’s Authentic Personalized Houston Astros Commemorative 50th Year Alternate Orange Jersey which ranks fifth-best in the NFL.

But perhaps the most telling stat that exemplifies what this Chiefs defense is
Personalized Houston Astros Jersey about is the frequency in which they’re able to take the ball away from their opponent. Since 2013, the Chiefs have forced 112 turnovers, which is third-best in the league over that time.

The secondary, which is led by All-Pros Eric Berry and Marcus Peters, plus the veteran presence and versatility of Ron Parker, who often doesn’t get the credit
Youth Authentic Custom Houston Astros Home White Commemorative 50th Anniversary Patch Jersey he deserves, has consistently proven to be one of the best in the league under defensive coordinator Bob Sutton.

Sutton joined head coach Andy Reid and the Chiefs before the 2013 season.

To take these numbers a step further, the folks over at Pro Football Focus recently put out another statistic that backs up the idea of the Chiefs’ secondary
Custom Twins Jersey being considered one of the NFL’s elite groups.

They have the Chiefs’ defense ranked No. 2 (2015) and No. 3 (2016) in opponent
Men’s Authentic Customized Minnesota Twins Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap quarterback rating over the past two years.

There’s reason to believe the success will continue considering every defensive back who played a snap for the Chiefs last year is returning this year.

The Chiefs also signed safety Marqueston Huff and cornerback De’Vante Bausby this offseason, and both found the field last year for other teams. They join a handful of guys competing for valuable roster spots as we inch closer to training camp, which begins late-July.

One of the big storylines for OTAs and training camp will be the cornerback position opposite of Marcus Peters.

Third-year player Steven Nelson spent a lot of time out there last year, but when teams went to three-wide sets late in the season, it was Terrance Mitchell who stepped up and played well.

Mitchell originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2014.

Before he got his shot last year, Mitchell had spent time on the practice squads of
Personalized Minnesota Twins Jersey the Chiefs, Bears, and Cowboys, and had already been released seven times in his career, including twice by the Chiefs.
Youth Authentic Customized Minnesota Twins Navy Blue Alternate Road Jersey.

The Chiefs also have experience out there in fourth-year player Phillip Gaines, who has battled injuries throughout his career.

Last year, the Chiefs ultimately kept nine defensive backs on the 53-man roster at
Website the conclusion of the preseason (including a roster exemption for Eric Berry).

 

Derrick Johnson Raised More Than $120,000 for Inner-City Kids

The Chiefs’ linebacker held his fifth annual event Monday night

The idea is simple. Derrick Johnson names the night, and his Kansas City Chiefs
Custom Red Sox Jersey teammates come.

Johnson held his fifth annual “Celebrity Waiter Night” Monday evening, and 13 Chiefs, including wide receiver Tyreek Hill, tight end Travis Kelce and
Men’s Boston Red Sox Majestic Home White Flex Base Authentic Collection Custom Jersey quarterback Alex Smith did just that.

“It’s wonderful to have teammates and guys I have bled, sweat and had tears with out there on that field to come and help me do some stuff off the field, which is pretty important when we’re at the platform we’re at,” Johnson said.
Personalized Boston Red Sox Jersey Every time I ask the players—all those guys, they’re like, ‘I got you, man. I’m coming.’ It lets me know the respect that I
Men’s Boston Red Sox Majestic Alternate Scarlet Flex Base Authentic Collection Custom Jersey have from the Chiefs.”

The night begins with a cocktail hour, in which the players serve appetizers and meals. Throughout the evening, guests are encouraged to bid on autographed jerseys and other prize packages.

Every dollar made on the evening supports Johnson’s Defend the Dream Foundation, which provides low-income and inner-city young people with opportunities and resources to reach their full potential.

 

The “Voice of the Chiefs,” Mitch Holthus, emcees the event.

“Mitch is wonderful,” Johnson said. “Mitch makes us all look good. He talks really well about us, and he’s a fan favorite, so Mitch is our guy, and he gets the
Women’s Personalized Stitched Any Name Any Number Baltimore Orioles Home White Jersey energy going.”

Holthus said he was impressed with how many players Johnson can get to the event year after year.

“I do a lot of these events throughout the year, and quite honestly, other than the
Custom Orioles Jersey kickoff luncheon, where the guys are required to be there, this gets the most activity of any event,” Holthus said. “It shows how much our players love DJ and how much they believe in this event.

“It goes right to the core of some critical need areas because all across the country, whether it’s Kansas City or coast to coast, we’re having a hard time funding education whether it’s public or private, and we’re particularly struggling in the places that need it the most. I think one of the answers across the country will be private endeavors like this because we can’t rely on public
Personalized Baltimore Orioles Jersey funding. We just can’t. It’s not there, and so guys like DJ step up and do this.”

By night’s end, more than $120,000 were raised for the Defend the Dream
Website Foundation.

“It’s setting the tone I think not only in Kansas City,” Holthus added, “but for the
Men’s Baltimore Orioles Alternate Orange Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey rest of the country.”

Derrick Johnson: Custom Braves Jersey “I’ll be at camp”

The Chiefs’ longtime linebacker still seems confident he’ll be ready for the start of training camp

Derrick Johnson said it in February; he’ll be ready for training camp.

As of Monday night, that still held true, as Johnson confirmed during his fifth
Custom Braves Jersey annual “Celebrity Waiter Night,” which raises funds for his Defend the Dream Foundation.

“I’m on track, just like last time,” he explained. “I never want to put a date on when I’m going to be 100 percent. But will I be at camp? I can say that, yeah. I’ll
Personalized Atlanta Braves Jersey  be at camp, so that’s a positive.”

Johnson ruptured his left Achilles tendon back in early December in the Chiefs’
Men’s Atlanta Braves Majestic Cream Alternate Flexbase Authentic Collection Custom Jersey Thursday Night Football matchup with the Raiders. He suffered the same injury in Week 1 of 2014 to his right Achilles and made it back in time for the start of 2015.

Part of the reason he has set training camp as a goal is because he considers that particular time so important for being 100 percent during the regular season.
Women’s Custom Any Name Any Number Atlanta Braves Authentic Home White Baseball Jersey.

“You get a lot of things done at camp,” he said. “Even though I’m an older guy, I will be excited to step out on the field with my pads on. You have a chance to
Custom Diamondbacks Jersey train your eyes, get your instincts back a little bit. They may be off just a little bit, not a lot, but at training camp, you have a
Men’s Authentic Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Alternate Black Home Baseball Jersey whole month just to gear it down and get all the kinks out of the game.”

The Chiefs’ longtime play-by-play announcer and host for “Celebrity Waiter Night,” Mitch Holthus, commented on the significance of potentially having him back.

“[It’s] huge,” Hotlhus said. “He’s a one-of-a-kind player. He’s a one-of-a-kind player and one-of-a-kind person, and he will go down in my brief Chiefs career as one of the greatest if not the greatest of my Chiefs players of all time. Just
Personalized Arizona Diamondbacks Jersey because he gets it, and I have a hard time keeping emotion away from it.”

Holthus, who was calling the game in which Johnson got hurt, recalled watching the play that injured him.

“It was a third down play and he helped forced [Derek] Carr out of bounds, then he just dropped down on his rear end, and I knew then,” he said. “I just knew. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ We’re going to do this again? But because he’s such a
Website remarkable person and athlete that, hey, it’s like Andy (Reid) said, ‘I will
Youth Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Customized Stitched Alternate Red Baseball Jersey never bet against Derrick Johnson.’”

Custom Tigers Jersey Ross Travis Sees “Opportunity” in O’Shaughnessy Trade

The Chiefs’ third-year tight end opened up about the upcoming season

In the midst of the Kansas City Chiefs’ most memorable draft in recent memory,
Custom Tigers Jersey one that included the selection of their first first-round quarterback in 34 years, the organization also made four trades.Men’s Authentic Custom Detroit Tigers Home White Baseball Jersey Sale.

Three happened during the draft itself, while one happened the morning of day three—about 20 minutes before the fourth round began, the Chiefs sent tight end James O’Shaughnessy and the 216th overall pick to the New England Patriots in
Personalized Detroit Tigers Jersey exchange for the 183rd overall pick, with which they would select Georgia Southern linebacker Ukeme Eligwe in the fifth round.

For Eligwe, it likely meant coming to Kansas City instead of elsewhere.

For players already on the team, like third-year tight end Ross Travis, it meant a bittersweet opportunity.

“That’s my brother,” Travis said of O’Shaughnessy. “He’s going to make the most of that situation over there. I know he’s excited about the new opportunity and stuff. As far as me, it’s just an opportunity, and I just have to take advantage of it.”

The Chiefs signed the 6-foot-7, 235-pounder out of Penn State back in 2015. Travis played basketball at Penn State and hadn’t played football since high school, but like in the case of Demetrius Harris, the Chiefs saw something in his
Men’s Detroit Tigers Authentic Personalized Navy Blue BP Jersey for Sale athletic ability and placed him on the roster.

“The goal in basketball was to be as great as I could be,” he said. “Now the plan for football is to be as great as I could be. I want to leave a good legacy.”

That “legacy” began its course last year when Travis earned a spot on the 53-man roster out of 2016 training camp.

Travis was the team’s third tight end to start the season, but after the Week 5 bye, his snaps began to go to the now-traded O’Shaughnessy. With
Custom Rockies Jersey O’Shaughnessy moving on to the Patriots, there is now a vacant spot in an Andy Reid offense that loves multiple tight end sets.
Men’s Authentic Customized Colorado Rockies Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey.

“With him leaving, spots open up and stuff,” he said. “I know it’s an opportunity and I have to take advantage of it. [The coaching staff] is not going to pull you aside or anything and be like, there’s a vacancy in this spot. They’re going to make you work for it.”

Travis is right. In the spirit of something general manager John Dorsey constantly preaches, there is much competition at the tight end spot heading into training camp.

Of course, there’s Travis Kelce, who has become a pseudo-mentor for Travis, in
Personalized Colorado Rockies Jersey addition to Harris, rookie Emanuel Byrd and a five-year veteran in Gavin Escobar.

The Dallas Cowboys actually selected Escobar in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, one round before the Chiefs took Kelce. Escobar has played in 62 career games with seven starts, compiling more than 300 yards receiving and
Youth Authentic Custom Colorado Rockies Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap
eight touchdowns.

What Travis, who has played in just six career games, believes he has on his side entering camp is having been able to learn from someone who has proven to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL.

“I owe a lot to that dude,” Travis said of Kelce. “He took me under his wing. He’s like my older brother. He takes care of me off the field, helps me out with stuff on the field. He’s constantly helping me improve my game because he sees something in me, and he’s been the best mentor I could ask for.”

Last year, Travis saw the field for 44 snaps, while he watched O’Shaughnessy take 111.

Where that playing time goes now will be a point to examine as the season draws

Travis Kelce, Custom Royals Jersey Chiefs Tight Ends Surprise Fifth-Graders At Arrowhead Stadium

Kelce was very active in the KC community this week

It was a busy week for Travis Kelce.

The Chiefs’ fifth-year tight end began his week in Oak Grove, Missouri, at Maple
Custom Royals Jersey Elementary School, where he helped dedicate a brand new basketball gym.

The students in attendance gave Kelce quite a welcome when he arrived at the
Personalized Kansas City Royals Jersey gym.

“It was crazy,” Kelce said. “It’s all surreal to me. I feel like I’m still a little kid at heart and enjoying every single moment that I have in the NFL and seeing them and recognizing who I am and cheering for me like that, heck, I was down the
Men’s Authentic Custom Kansas City Royals Alternate Light Blue 2015 World Series Champion Patch Jersey hall, and I heard them chanting my name.

“I couldn’t do anything except run in here. I didn’t even have a chance to throw this jersey on before I just ran in here and gave everybody high-fives.”

United Healthcare presented Kelce with a $20,000 check to the Oak Grove School District. The money, through Kelce’s Dreambuilders program, will help fund the
Custom Astros Jersey “snack packs” program.

Kelce finished his visit to Maple Elementary by conducting a Play 60 relay race,
Men’s Authentic Customized Kansas City Royals Alternate 2 Royal Blue Jersey taking pictures and signing autographs.

The fun continued for Kelce Thursday at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs invited 30 fifth-graders from Immanuel Lutheran School to tour the
Personalized Houston Astros Jersey stadium, but before the tour began, Kelce,
Men’s Authentic Personalized Houston Astros Commemorative 50th Year Alternate Orange Jersey joined by Gavin Escobar, Demetrius Harris and Ross Travis surprised the students.

“It’s still a surreal feeling when I get to be around the young ones,” Kelce said. “I know I was that kid at one point in my life, and to be honest, I still live in that moment when I get to meet the greats that I looked up to when I was playing.”

The tight ends brought the students to the Arrowhead Stadium field, where they
MLB held a Play 60 clinic.

“The play 60 is awesome because you get to not only enjoy the time with the kids, but you get to teach them about being active and letting them know it’s fun to be
Youth Authentic Custom Houston Astros Home White Commemorative 50th Anniversary Patch Jersey active,” Kelce added.
