Good morning, AP. We've gathered your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Enjoy!

Thanks to a QB controversy, a youth movement, a decline in performance or even a discrepancy in value throughout the years, similar instances have arisen in Chiefs history. Other squads conquered new heights by reaping the benefits of the efforts of Lamar Hunt’s franchise. And even though we can always rationalize that different circumstances acted in every case – the price was not worth it or it just wasn’t meant to be – the fact remains that while the people that left the Red and Gold colors indeed enjoyed progress, the Chiefs, as a whole, stood still. It prompts us to always think about what might have been. And clearly, that’s the phase that they’re about to begin in Ohio.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Thomas Jones served as the keynote speaker. Jones, a Big Stone Gap, Va., native, was one of seven children raised in a coal mining family. His father, two grandfathers and mother were all coal miners...

..."I am a coal miner’s son. I’ve been proud of that my whole life," he said. "...My recipe for success has always been hard work. Some people think that’s clichéd, but it goes back to coal mining."

His NFL career has had its low moments, such as being released, Jones said. But he said he cannot complain after seeing his "courageous" family members work in underground coal mines...

...Jones said speaking at Sunday’s event was a "blessing and an honor" and that he felt like he was at home. He told family members he has followed their stories and admires the strength they have shown.

It’s generally assumed since Stan Rome was a two-sport letterman at Clemson that his son, Jay Rome, is most likely to end up there.

Not so, says the man that should know best, Stan Rome.

..."The intensity of recruiting is no different today but things were a whole lot different back at that time," said Stan, who played for four years in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. "Now they have a lot of NCAA rules and do’s and don’ts that didn’t exist back in that day. And back then the schools in the South were just integrating African-American students. So it was a situation where no one in my family had ever graduated from college. . . .
