Good morning! I'm singing the offseason blues this morning. A light day of Kansas City Chiefs news for us. Enjoy.

From individual plays to overall blocking schemes, Hudson had questions about the Chiefs' playbook. And Asamoah was often the recipient of many a late-night texting interrogation.

"Early when we started all this offseason stuff, I was getting texts at night from him (Hudson) asking me all kinds of questions," Asamoah said. "He was asking 'What do we do on this?' or 'What about this?' He really got into it."

"I'll give you one example, Dan Saleaumua," Cunningham said, referring to the Lions' seventh-round pick in 1987 who resurrected his career in Kansas City. "(The Lions) threw him out. He went to the Pro Bowl for me. Now he has a chain of, I think, 55 drug stores ... and he runs them like a football team, and he's worth a lot of money. We didn't give up on him."

When the Chiefs worked out Brian Banks this month, they put him through a scouting combine type of workout, designed to see exactly what kind of athlete he was and potential he had. Banks measured at 6-2 ½ and 239 pounds. He ran a 4.77-second 40-yard dash.

There were 33 linebackers at the Scouting Combine in February; 29 ran the 40-yard dash. Banks, who hadn't worked out seriously before being exonerated May 24 because he never thought he'd ever have a chance to play pro football after 10 years away from the game, ran a faster 40 than eight of the 29 prospects, including running faster than five of the inside linebackers running for their NFL lives in Indianapolis.
