Good morning Chiefs fans! A very light day of Kansas City Chiefs news, but I think a lot of you will find the Horn and Castille stories interesting. Enjoy.
Legal and labor stuff is a pain and I don't like it, and I can tell most of you agree. But it's the major news in the world of pro football right now, and goes along with the whole package.
Here are some non-labor questions that I saw pop up on the comments. One thing I'm determined to do is to keep the talk of football going, without being dominated by the labor situation.

Brandon Carr, a former Grand Valley State standout and third-year NFL cornerback, received a contract tender Thursday from the Kansas City Chiefs, according to published reports...
...Carr led the NFL in passes defended and helped Kansas City claim the AFC West title this past season.
After making the unlikely journey from NAIA football at Rocky Mountain College in Billings to the NFL, Chris Horn found himself ranked last of 13 on the Kansas City Chief's depth chart.
The team had four veteran wide receivers and only needed one more guy - and it probably wasn't going to be him, Horn told students Friday at Great Falls Central Catholic High School.

If there was a first family of Briarwood Christian School football, it would be the Castille family.
All three of Castille's sons played for Yancey at the school.
Any offensive record not held by a quarterback most likely has Tim Castille's name written at the top. Tim starred on both offense and defense on Briarwood's two AHSAA Class 3A title teams in the late 1990s before following in his father's footsteps in Tuscaloosa.
Tim is now in his fourth season of professional football with the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs.
