Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

Tentatively, the premiere of THE CHIEFS … THE MOVIE is scheduled for August 12 on national television in a pre-season game against Tampa Bay. We can’t provide a clip to view or a lot of details from the super-secret script, but we have gotten a look at the cast and it’s a powerful group.

OLB Tamba Hali, who was offered the franchise tag before the lockout began, would like to sign an extension with Kansas City. Hali's agent, Brian Mackler, told PFW he was optimistic a multi-year contract could be worked out with the Chiefs once a salary cap is in place.

I’m amazed by how many fans still don’t like Haley. His looks are the biggest distraction. His attitude toward the media and fans another and his my way or the highway mentality rubs some wrong. Haley’s not traditional, not at all. His road to the NFL and being a head coach isn’t typical. There have been other coaches who haven’t played in the NFL and have been successful, but Haley is a unique duck.

Haley has fire and he’s not one to deal out handshakes, kisses or hugs. That’s OK, because it’s not about being sweet. The Chiefs are better with him, and that’s what I see.

Tony Adams played quarterback for the Chiefs from 1975-78, but hadn't seen a down of pro football since leaving the CFL seven years earlier. He was a happily retired 37-year-old financial planner, but he also had connections to the Vikings coaching staff.

"My flag football team won the league tournament on a Sunday, and (assistant coach) Paul (Wiggin) called me that night," Adams said. "I talked to Mike Lynn on Monday, flew to Minnesota on Tuesday, practiced on Wednesday and started for the Vikings that Sunday."
