Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 6/27

New, comments

Good morning! Another day of the lockout, but hopefully we're getting to the end of that mess. Not much out there, but here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news.

Pope plans to use his foundation – the Creating Hope and Making Progress (CHAMP) Foundation – to begin making sure the kids of Americus learn how to swim. It’s all part of the message he’s tried to set with the foundation, where he’s highlighted family, leadership, education and fitness for children...

...As Pope receives the attention he deserves for saving a young life, it comes in the same week as one of the most tragic days in Chiefs history.

Coming up on Wednesday it will be 28 years since Joe Delaney died in a Louisiana construction pond trying to save three youngsters who were drowning.

As the lockout continues, we are trying to provide a very personal look at some of the little known players on the roster that might be able to step up and provide help on the field during the 2011 season. Last, we featured LB Micah Johnson and WR Jerheme Urban. Today, we look at OT Bobby Greenwood.

The ceremony was the first time Pope had seen Anne and Bryson since saving Bryson’s life. The story had spread across the nation, from ESPN to Michael Irvin’s talk radio show in Miami and even to Oprah Winfrey’s network.

However, Pope made it all about Bryson on Sunday, posing with the 6-year-old for cameras and returning all the gratitude that had been shown to him in the previous two weeks.

"It’s a real hot topic right now, but it’s really kind of heartwarming to just see Anne … and Bryson again and just to have open arms to those guys because she’s been so apologetic to me throughout the whole period and stuff," Pope said. "It was a great gift to stand at the microphone today."

Conference calls were held in the last two days, and the players were told more updates will come next week, when Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, several owners and players are scheduled to meet again at an undisclosed location.

"There's definitely going to be talks every week because time is of the essence," Wilson said.
