Matt Cassel Takes the Field
The Chiefs take a break from practice this week. They’ll resume next week with two sessions plus a mandatory weekend minicamp.
By the time they’re finished with offseason work in the middle of next month, they’ll hold 10 more practices, plus five in the minicamp.
What happens on the field with the 75 or so players who will take part in the Chiefs OTA sessions starting Monday is what’s important in the big picture.
But for these first sessions, the attention will focus on the little picture, in this case the players who are not there. Will unhappy Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters set aside his feelings and take part? After missing the veteran’s mini-camp before the NFL Draft, will LB Mike Vrabel become part of the Chiefs for the first time?
