Good morning, AP. Training camp this week! Enjoy your Kansas City Chiefs news.
When you’ve won 10 games over the previous three seasons, as the Chiefs have done, it doesn’t take much to prompt the feeling the the worst is finally over.
The Chiefs think they’ve earned the right to feel that way. They point to a productive offseason that saw them rebuild coach Todd Haley’s staff of assistants, sign a 1,400-yard rusher in Thomas Jones and draft one of the top safety prospects to come out of college in many years, Eric Berry.
Haley dared give voice to that notion as far back as the NFL’s scouting combine in February. He didn’t back off last month when the Chiefs concluded their offseason practice.

What Are Your Questions About The 2010 Chiefs? from Bob Gretz
Because of the wear-and-tear of a 16-game schedule — in addition to the different skills required in multiple offenses — most teams are doubling up in the backfield and splitting the workload between two and sometimes among three running backs...
...That’s why several teams fortified their backfields this season, starting with the Chiefs, who signed free agent Thomas Jones, the third-leading rusher in the NFL for the Jets with 1,402 yards. He’ll team with the league’s 11th-ranked rusher, Jamaal Charles, who ran for 1,120 yards in barely a half season last year.
