Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 6/22

Good morning! Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!


Catching Up With Chiefs QB Chase Daniel from The Mothership

The Kansas City Chiefs are nearing the start of 2013 training camp, with the QBs and rookies scheduled to report on July 22nd. One of those signal-callers, Chiefs QB Chase Daniel enters his first year with the team, after spending the last four seasons with the New Orleans Saints.

On March 13th, the Chiefs signed Daniel and since then, he participated in the team's offseason programs, including OTAs and minicamp practices; he later sat down to discuss the past few months, playing in Chiefs head coach Andy Reid's system and more.

Jamaal Charles Conducts Free Football Camp from The Beaumont Enterprise

"Most of these guys see me with a helmet on TV, but now they can see me with a helmet off," Charles said. "It's pretty cool. They know who I am. They can learn from people who made it, people who made it to the NFL."

2013 Quarterbacks Fantasy Preview from ESPN

Andy Reid will embrace Alex Smith with the Kansas City Chiefs and put him in a low-risk system that will play to Smith's strengths. While I'm highly doubtful that will add up to fantasy-starter numbers, the Chiefs will improve on their dreadful '12 record. Expect low TD and INT totals for Smith, with a competent season in which he'll be near the league's bottom in average yards at the catch, but without too many crushing performances. He's a deep option in a two-QB league.

2013 Running Backs Fantasy Preview from ESPN

The gold standard of ultradangerous speedsters is Jamaal Charles. The Kansas City Chiefs won't give him many close-in carries -- because he's not a banger and because the team's offense isn't likely to generate a ton of totes inside the 5 -- so it's unlikely that J-Mail will run for more than, say, five TDs. But he produced 1,745 yards from scrimmage in '12 coming off a torn ACL. The yardage will be there for Charles.

Eight In The Box: Secondary Status Check from ESPN

The Chiefs boast one of the best secondaries in the NFL. It starts with the cornerbacks, who form arguably the top unit in the league. The new Chiefs regime went to work in free agency, adding Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith, two of the better cornerbacks available. Combine Robinson and Smith with incumbent Brandon Flowers -- known around the scouting community as one of the NFL's better corners -- and it's a powerful group. Expect all three to be on the field often. The Chiefs aren't too shabby at safety, either.

Mike Strange: Former Vols Have High Expectations from GoVolsXtra

Laughter was ringing from the hills of Northeast Knox County on Friday. If a stranger wandered into Three Ridges Golf Course, he or she would quickly realize this was no normal afternoon on the links.

The first clue would be the prevalence of 4XL and/or XLT men climbing in and out of the carts.

Another would be shots spraying hither and yon, although Eric Berry claimed via Twitter to have "just pulled off a true birdie.''

2013 Draft Prep: Fantasy Factors In The 2013 Schedule from CBS Sports

The Chiefs don't have it too bad. Not only are two of their division rivals in a freefall but they also hired Andy Reid just in time to face the teams he used to play against (and coach) in the NFC East. Three of the Chiefs' first four games are against the NFC East and they don't face a division rival until Week 6 when they start a three-game stretch at home.

Stephen Brown: Kelce Could Make Big Impact from The Examiner

I saw several OTA and minicamp practices, Kelce made plays at each one. He's been given a chance by John Dorsey and Andy Reid, he knows that.

"One, that he was a great guy and a great coach and that he is going to hold you accountable and I love that about coaches," Kelce said about Andy Reid soon after being drafted. "I'm more than happy and more than fortunate enough to have a guy like Coach Reid ahead of us and kind of coach me up and get me going in the right direction."

Jacksonville Jaguars 2013 Schedule Analysis from Athlon Sports

Based on Jacksonville's 2-14 showing last season, ongoing quarterback issues and the fact there is a new coaching staff in charge, wins figure to be at a premium for the Jaguars in 2013. That said, the opportunity exists for the new regime to start things on a positive note with Kansas City and Oakland on tap the first two weeks. Like the Jags, the Chiefs are under new leadership with Andy Reid taking over, so the best time to get them may be in Week 1.
