Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 6/17

Hello, and welcome to another edition of Arrowheadlines. We've gathered the Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet and put it in a nice little bundle for you. Enjoy.

The Chiefs coaching staff is packing up and getting ready for vacation. Some are headed for the beach while others are on their way to the golf course or mountains. More than a few may simply sit back and put their feet up and enjoy for a few weeks not having to work 18-hour days.

Knowing Todd Haley and the type of people that work for him, they may enjoy some down time, but football, the Chiefs and the 2010 NFL season will not be far from their minds.

I’d like to plant a few seeds in their minds to consider over the next 40 days. For the most part, these items have already landed on the coaches’ radar screens. In fact, some of these thoughts are originally their ideas. I just want to reinforce their thinking and pump up their desire to move forward with some of these plans and will benefit the 2010 Chiefs.

Unga made national news shortly after BYU’s spring football camp when he removed himself from BYU for violating the school’s honor code. His attempt to return to BYU in time to resume his college football playing career was later denied by the university.

Unga and his agent Eric Metz, who has represented several other former Cougars, are in contact with multiple teams who are expressing interest in BYU’s all-time leading rusher. In fact, Unga recently spent over an hour on the phone speaking with the front office brass of the Kansas City Chiefs.

From its meager beginnings six short years ago, the Antonio Gates Sound Mind-Sound Body Football Academy has grown into one of the region's premiere events for talent development.
