Good morning, Kansas City Chiefs fans. We stayed up late tracking some of the Chiefs free agency news out there so I slept right in today. Today, obviously, is Steve Breaston day. Enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news.
Breaston will join the Chiefs today when they arrive at training camp at Missouri Western in St. Joseph. Their first practice is set for 3:30 p.m. Friday. They will also practice Saturday and Sunday at the same time.
For a team that lead the NFL in rushing last season, it sure looks like the Kansas City offense could start to resemble the one Haley built in Arizona.
Practice begins Friday at 3:30 PM and is open to the public. Unless otherwise announced, all training camp practices will be open with free admission (please note that MWSU is charging a $5 parking fee this year).
Saturday and Sunday practice sessions are also scheduled for 3:30 PM.
It's third-and-8 in the fourth quarter of the Chiefs season opener on September 11 against the Buffalo Bills.
Head coach Todd Haley and offensive coordinator Bill Muir send out a package of five skill position players to work with QB Matt Cassel. At the wide receiver spots are Dwayne Bowe and Jonathan Baldwin. In the slot receiver position is Steve Breaston. Lined up in the backfield in the shotgun formation with Cassel are Jamaal Charles to the left and Dexter McCluster to the right.
And just like that, the Kansas City Chiefs have entered the NFL free agent market. For fans waiting for Scott Pioli and company to do something major with the $30-plus million at their disposal, a nice five-year deal with wide receiver Steve Breaston might do the trick.
Think about it. After four years of hearing "be patient," and "next year will be better," the Chiefs finally are a contending football team. And wouldn't it have been our luck to have football taken away from the fans that finally weren't in pain watching every Sunday. It would be another "be patient" year, just with the worse suffering of no football, rather than bad football.
Everyone talks about how quarterback Matt Cassel needs to get better. Well, he just got better with these additions. Cassel has to be drooling to have these weapons. Don't forget, Kansas City has the No. 12 ranked offense in the NFL.
Yes, folks, this offense has a chance to explode on a weekly basis. Kansas City has a lot of money to spend and its first pending outside expenditure is a worthwhile endeavor.
