Chiefs' Pro Bowl Punter Colquitt Wants To Stay In KC from KC Star
Punter Dustin Colquitt made himself a promise regarding the Pro Bowl shortly after being drafted by the Chiefs in 2005.
"My rookie year I opened my mouth too wide and said I wouldn't go to the Pro Bowl unless I was playing in it," Colquitt said. "It took me eight years to crack the code."
Because he did, Colquitt has been in Hawaii this week preparing for Sunday's Pro Bowl. He is one of six Chiefs on the AFC roster. The rest of the group consists of running back Jamaal Charles, linebackers Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and safety Eric Berry.
Dwayne Bowe Is One OF ESPN's Five 'Must Keep' Free Agents from The Pitch
It's easy to undervalue what you have in Bowe. But for his career, he has averaged 4.7 catches for 65 yards and .44 touchdowns per game. That's not far off from Calvin Johnson (the best wide receiver of Bowe's 2007 draft class). Johnson puts up 5.3 catches for 85 yards and .58 touchdowns every time he steps on the field. If you handicap for quarterback play, that gap shrinks further. Bowe could be a pillar on which the offense is built, but only if the Chiefs decide to re-sign him. Do you think the Chiefs should keep Bowe's services?
AFC West Fits For Darrelle Revis from ESPN
Kansas City: The Chiefs don't have a ton of pressing needs other than quarterback, so that's where they must look first. But adding Revis to Brandon Flowers and a strong defense would be pretty tempting. I could see the Chiefs giving up the No. 34 pick in the draft, for starters. Is their No. 1 overall pick worth dealing for Revis? Maybe in some type of package deal that gets the Chiefs a little more than Revis, sure.
Once Super-Agent Remakes Manti, We'll Forget All About This Saga from CBS Sports
You don't know Tom Condon. I know Tom Condon. At least, I know of him.
Tom Condon may be the most powerful man in the NFL this side of Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith. That's not just me talking, that's the buzz, the football world.
Condon, a former Kansas City Chiefs guard, is the power brokers' power broker. He's also Manti Teo's agent. This matters because we have now entered into the rehab phase of Teo's NFL career before the man has made a tackle.
"The magnitude of all the things that go on before the Super Bowl. I think the first year we were out there we didn't do anything hardly, nothing was done before the Super Bowl. Now they have the convention center and thousands of people coming from all over the world."
Bell and John also talk about segregation in the NFL and how the AFL changed the perception of black athletes and helped break down race barriers.
Ex-Chiefs Cheerleader Takes Talents To Octagon from FS Kansas City
"When they say, 'Oh, you're too pretty to fight,' that seems kind of dumb," chuckles Wray, who's slated to take on Katelyn Radtka Friday night at the VooDoo Lounge in Harrah's Casino North Kansas City as part of the Blue Corner Battles series. "Why does me being pretty (matter)? Does that make me automatically unable to fight? Are you saying ugly girls are better at fighting?"
It's been an uphill battle for Wray to prove the beauty is a beast, but it's starting to pay off. She recently received an offer to do a major magazine photo shoot, and the phone's ringing a bit more regularly ever since video of her first bout - a TKO over Ashleigh Tillman this past September - went viral; YouTube.com footage of the second round had received 263,042 views as of late Thursday afternoon.
