Good morning and welcome back to the grind. To ease that pain, we have your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.

Regardless of the date that the NFL Lockout officially comes to an end, the Chiefs still have plenty ahead in preparing for 2011.

With America’s 235th birthday officially behind us, the downhill sprint towards NFL training camps has begun. Last year, the Chiefs opened camp in St. Joseph on July 29th – a mere 24 days from today.

When football returns, expect these six items to be at the forefront of Kansas City’s approach.

According to the player voting, the Chiefs are tied for the spot as the fifth most talented team in the league. Only Green Bay (7), Indianapolis (6), Dallas (6) and Baltimore (6) had more players on the top 100. Also sitting with five players were Atlanta, New England and New Orleans.

That’s what a 10-6 record and a division championship will bring to a team that was under the radar in previous seasons. It may be a bit premature on some of the Chiefs selected and certainly reputation when it comes to another.

Based on the rest of the list Charles is rated too low, Bowe too high, Hali too low and Waters too high.

While NFL owners and players appear to be inching toward a resolution of the league's long lockout, a group of retired players is clamoring to be more involved in the discussions.

The group filed a class-action complaint against the owners and current players in federal court Monday, saying they have been excluded from the mediation sessions taking place in an attempt to end the lockout.

As we celebrate Independence Day, this is a good time to ask a question that divides the nation: who is America’s Team?

The Dallas Cowboys gave themselves the title, but that seems really outdated. You could make a case for the Steelers or Packers or even the Patriots as the new America’s Team among pro football teams.

How about the Yankees?
