Ed Zurga

Good morning! 2 Days worth of stories for you. I thought I'd be back earlier yesterday from a trip (sorry Joel!). Here is today's... and yesterday's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

Chiefs Teamed Up With Royals from The Mothership

The Chiefs Community Caring Team partnered with players from the Kansas City Royals to serve lunch to families at the Ronald McDonald House on Saturday afternoon.

"This event was a chance to support the families of the Ronald McDonald House and give back to the community," Jeff Allen explained.

Final Week Of Voluntary OTAs Arrives from Chiefs Spin

Outside linebacker Justin Houston and cornerback Brandon Flowers have missed the previous six OTA workouts, but they won't need to be present until next week's mandatory minicamp on June 17-19.

Meanwhile, the upcoming two weeks marks the home stretch before the Chiefs takes a break in preparation for training camp.

And the spot on the defensive line that opened up when Tyson Jackson, a former third overall draft pick, chased the free-agent buck to Atlanta.

Sure, there are favorites to win those jobs, but right now none of them appears to be set in stone, which has made for some spirited competition during voluntary offseason workouts.
