Good morning everyone. Chris is traveling today and I'm headed to the Royals game but we've got a couple of things lined up today so check back sporadically.
The Kansas City Chiefs have already completed 10 practices this season. All of them have been voluntary at this point. Three have been with veterans prior to the draft, three were with just rookies and first year players, and the next four have been voluntary with everyone.
Here's some of the coverage we've had of each camp. Check out a few of the links to get caught up. If you're not checking Arrowhead Pride on the weekends, you'll have to start doing so at least during June as a few of these fall on weekends.
April 17-19 (Voluntary mini-camp)
May 8-10 (Rookie mini-camp)
May 18-19 (OTA)
May 21-22 (OTA)
June 1-2 (OTA)
June 5-7 (MANDATORY Mini-camp)
June 8-9 (OTA)
June 11-12 (OTA)
June 15-18 (OTA)
The month of June will have 13 practices. Because we have a new head coach, the Chiefs are allowed to have two additional voluntary mini-camps. There's one mandatory mini-camp which is all that's allowed per NFL rules.
These practices will take us through the majority of June and then we'll stroll right into July. On July 30, the Chiefs will depart for training camp in River Falls, WI.
Right now the big day is June 5th which is the first mandatory session of the offseason. Judging by Todd Haley's comments, we expect Mike Vrabel to be there. Now, we're only waiting on the status of Brian Waters.
