Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 2/28

New, comments

Good morning Chiefs fans, and welcome to another week. Here's today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

Sunday morning my number came up and I got the chance to go behind the curtain and watch quarterbacks and receivers working inside Lucas Oil Stadium.

I'd like to tell you it was a scintillating 90 minutes of football at its finest. It would be far more truthful to say that I had trouble keeping my eyes open. There is nothing exciting going on because this isn't so much football as it is the underwear Olympics.

All the players are decked out in their Under Armour shirts, shorts, socks, sweats, etc. There are no pads or the other things that make watching football so much fun, like crowd, music and pageantry.

"Right now we do know there will be a draft," Arizona Cardinals general manager Rod Graves said. "We’ll approach the draft as if that’s the only thing we have to focus (on)."

The situation isn’t that simple. Teams, including the Chiefs, have to plan for every contingency. The free-agency signing period, scheduled to begin Thursday night, could begin at a later date or not at all. Potential restricted free agents will receive tender offers this week just in case.

It looks like the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs will have to trade up if they want a chance to draft Alabama receiver Julio Jones.

According to Todd McShay of Scouts Inc., Jones is having a tremendous NFL combine. McShay reported that Jones ran a 4.39 40-yard dash and delivered a silly 11-foot, 3-inch broad jump.

We continue our evaluation of the Kansas City Chiefs roster by going back to the defensive side of the ball to look at Eric Berry.

The #5 overall pick came into the season with very high expectations from Chiefs Nation. As early as the preseason it was obvious that Berry had all the tools to be a very special player. He seemed to be all over the field, almost as if he was going at a different speed than everyone else.

Haley (who was wearing his NFC championship ring) isn't playing hoops right now after tearing his quad muscle in his right leg - he's rehabbing now - and that led to discussion about when he hurt it.

He actually hurt it right before the Cardinals played in Kansas City this season. Haley was trying to keep the injury out of the spotlight, but he couldn't stop thinking about a Larry Fitzgerald tackle.
