Anthony Sherman Talks Royals, Billy Butler & More from The Mothership
"I love to support the hometown teams," Sherman said. "It's exciting to have two good teams in the same area, sharing the same parking lot. These fans are crazy about their teams. It's fun to be a part of and I think it's great for the community to have both teams so intertwined with each other, supporting one another; it just shows that the community itself supports its teams, no matter what they are doing that year."

Dates for training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph have not been set. But the first full-squad camp practice can be held no more than 15 days prior to the first preseason game.
Middle, Late Rounds Of Draft Offer WR Choices from Chiefs Spin
In one of the deepest NFL Drafts of the past decade, the Chiefs, owners of the 23rd pick overall, have plenty of possibilities throughout the NFL's annual three-day selection process.
"The depth at wide receiver is one of the critical aspects of this draft class," CBSSports.com and NFLDraftScout.com senior draft analyst Rob Rang said in a phone interview. "There's no question wide receiver is the strongest position in this draft class and the depth that is going to extend in the third or fourth round is a good reason for that."
Jackson's deal, not including a voidable 2017 season, is reportedly for three years and $24 million. His 2014 salary-cap obligations are $1 million for his salary, $2 million for roster and workout bonuses and a $1.25 million proration of his signing bonus. So his cap number is $4.25 million this year.
The Chiefs have about $4.5 million in cap room, so signing Jackson to his Redskins contract would have left them about $250,000 of available cap room. That's not nearly enough to allow the Chiefs to do the things they'd like to do for the rest of 2014.
The grass looks green and lush at Kauffman Stadium in time for the Royals home opener, but it took a lot of work after this brutal winter. The 13 workers on the Royals grounds crew spend each off-season preparing the field, but this year they asked the Chiefs for help.
The Chiefs gave the Royals some tarps from neighboring Arrowhead Stadium this spring to cover extra parts of the grass at Kauffman Stadium.
Many fans no doubt look at their seeming lack of urgency in finding a replacement for departed free agent Kendrick Lewis to be puzzling and frsutrating. I say it suggests they have a plan. That plan could be to land a free safety in the draft. Perhaps there's a safety still on a roster around the league they believe will eventually come available and they will act then.
More likely, their next starting free safety is already on their roster.
5 Solid NFL Teams From Last Season That Could Regress In 2014 from The Huffington Post
After dumping Romeo Crennel for Andy Reid and acquiring Alex Smith to replace Matt Cassel, the Chiefs went from having the first pick in the 2013 NFL draft to owning a 38-10 third quarter lead over the Indianapolis Colts in the wild card round of the playoffs before flaming out 45-44. Kansas City jumped out to a roaring 9-0 start, but did so against opposition that concluded the 2013 campaign with a combined record of just 52-92 (.361). Noteworthy is the fact that the Chiefs went 1-5 last season against teams that qualified for the playoffs. In addition, Jacksonville, Cleveland and Houston are off the schedule this year, while New England, Seattle, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Arizona have been added.
NFL Nation: 4 Downs -- AFC West from ESPN
Since the Chargers were the only ones in the AFC West to beat the Broncos last season and have had a better run than the Chiefs in free agency, I'll go with the Bolts. While Kansas City lost three starting offensive linemen, San Diego essentially stayed the course. Quarterback Philip Rivers enjoyed a renaissance season under first-year coach Mike McCoy and figures to spread his wings (and bolo ties) with a year of experience.

23. Kansas City Chiefs (11-5): Kelvin Benjamin, wide receiver, Florida State The Chiefs appear to be banking on a top receiver being available when they pick in the first round, because they didn't add a wideout in free agency. Benjamin lacks speed, but he's big, and he can get open.
