Kansas City Chiefs' good news and bad news this offseason

It's a good news, bad news kind of day for me so I want to do what I always do and insert my personal life into our KC Chiefs conversations today.


The good news is that Mrs. Arrowhead Pride and I are currently en route to sunny Key West, Florida for her sister's wedding. We'll be here for the next five days, relaxing (and boozing) on the beach. The bad news is that our beautiful beast, Callie, fell ill and we had to take her to the vet.

On that note, I was thinking about good news, bad news stories with the KC Chiefs this offseason. Since we've gone through must of the pre-camp offseason, please take a minute to find one piece of good news about the Chiefs this offseason and one piece of bad news. My entry is below:

Good news: The Chiefs have offensive line depth. Jeff Allen, a second round pick, or Geoff Schwartz won't be starting. That's good depth. You have to feel good about having reserves on your team who could challenge for starting jobs elsewhere. Eric Fisher and Branden Albert are first round picks. Rodney Hudson was picked up in the second round, as was Allen. Jon Asamoah was a third round pick. That's a large investment into the offensive line and I believe the Chiefs will begin reaping those rewards.

Bad news: The receivers don't look all that improved. The Chiefs receivers (besides Bowe) were a problem last year. Donnie Avery was the only significant addition to that group in the offseason. I'm guessing receiver will be a problem for the Chiefs again.

Your turn.

Give us one piece of good news and one piece of bad news about your KC Chiefs this offseason.
