Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 6/26

Good morning! We have a pretty good lineup of Kansas city Chiefs news to start your day. Enjoy!


Chiefs To Give Each Season-Ticket Holder A Free Bag from KC Star

Each Chiefs season-ticket account holder will receive one complimentary clear plastic bag branded with the Chiefs logo. Account holders with more than four seats, will receive one free bag for every four seats on the account.

"We want to help make the transition to the new policy as smooth as possible," Chiefs president Mark Donovan said in a statement released by the team. "We hope that giving these approved plastic bags to our Season Ticket Holders will help with the adjustment and provide clear guidelines."

Twitter Tuesday: Talking Royals, Chiefs, BBQ Sauce And Wil Myers from KC Star

@kchoya what would be the Chiefs equivalent of the Royals rally sauce phenomenon?

Barbecue sauce is the obvious go-to inanimate object for a Kansas City team, but don't overlook the importance of Billy Butler's name being on it. So I'll go a different route and say it would have to be budding rapper Tamba Hali dropping verses on a song that plays after every big play^.

^ Speaking of Chiefs celebrations, did anyone else notice that during Justin Houston's segment on the NFL Network's Top 100 players they showed a clip of the group dance in Pittsburgh? You know, the one that drew a penalty for celebrating a touchdown that didn't actually count?

Those 2012 Chiefs are just going to get more ridiculous as time passes.

Chiefs' 'Mt. Rushmore:' Who Got Snubbed? from KC Star

PFT originally had Hall of Fame linebacker Willie Lanier, another member of the Chiefs' glory era of the late 1960s and early 1970s, on the list but couldn't decide whether to leave off Gonzalez or Thomas.

Other contenders? Well, you can start with the founder. Not only of the Chiefs but the entire American Football League, Lamar Hunt. And then there's the rest of the Chiefs' contingent in Canton: linebacker Bobby Bell, defensive tackle Buck Buchanan, kicker Jan Stenerud and cornerback Emmitt Thomas.

Jamaal Charles Is High On Andy Reid from ESPN

Charles gets paid, first and foremost, to carry the ball. He had 1,509 yards last season. The Chiefs will have plenty of plays that calls for Charles to run. In fact, earlier this offseason, receiver Dwayne Bowe predicted Charles would lead the NFL in rushing.

Asked about it Tuesday, Charles lit up. He didn't shy away from the challenge and he said he is happy his teammates have so much confidence in him.

CMU's Eric Fisher Is 'Grinding' With Kansas City Chiefs from MLive

Now, two months removed from becoming the No. 1 pick overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, he's become a known commodity.

And he likes it.

Fisher has had a busy year going from prospect to pick and on to the Kansas City Chiefs where he's made a new home and found a new position.

D.A.R.E. Camp Kicks Off from The Leavenworth Times

During the first day of this year's D.A.R.E. camp in Leavenworth, children were treated to an appearance by the mascot for the Kansas City Chiefs.

KC Wolf stopped by the camp Monday at Richard W. Warren Middle School. And the children in the camp heard from Dan Meers, the man who portrays the mascot.

2013 Fantasy Football Sleepers - Alex Smith, QB, Chiefs from Sporting News

But the Chiefs didn't stop with those two moves. They re-signed WR Dwayne Bowe, brought in WR Donnie Avery and TE Anthony Fasano, and drafted RB Knile Davis. With 2011 first-round pick Jon Baldwin still listed as a starting WR on the depth chart and 2010 second-round pick Dexter McCluster fitting the profile of a versatile runner/receiver that Reid likes, the Chiefs quietly have an interesting offense.

It's unclear who exactly is going to shine in Reid's system, but one thing we know is that it all starts with the man under center. And if the strides that Smith has made the past two years under coach Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco are for real, then he could be an interesting fantasy option.

Bills Set Date For Individual Game Tix Sales from The Buffalo News

The Bills added that special group pricing is available for the Cincinnati Bengals (Oct. 13), Kansas City Chiefs (Nov. 3), New York Jets (Nov. 17) and Miami Dolphins (Dec. 22).

NFL All Budget Team - Offense from Sports Jerks Network

Running Backs: Jamaal Charles, Kansas City; Doug Martin, Tampa Bay; Alfred Morris, Washington; Reggie Bush, Detroit; DeMarco Murray, Dallas; Vonta Leach, Free Agent

I would have loved to put Adrian Peterson in the backfield, but $13 million+ is just too much for a running back in this day and age. Hence, we get Charles, one of the fastest backs in the NFL - and one who has had to do it alone for most of his career, as the Chiefs passing game has been horrible.

Jimmy Raye Brings His Annual Taste Taste Of The NFL To His Fayetteville Football Camp from The Fayetteville Observer

The 31-year-old All-Pro fullback has spent his offseason fielding offers from teams after helping the Baltimore Ravens to their Super Bowl XLVII win over San Francisco in February.

Leach, who will hold his foundation's youth camp Saturday in Lumberton, said his own experiences helping the Raye Foundation inspired him to start his own camp.

"My first camp was coming to one of his camps, and that got me started doing my stuff," Leach said. "Seeing how he did it and what he was doing for the community. So it's very important to me to come out and support him."

Leach, Tennessee Titans running back Collin Mooney, a West Point graduate, and former Kansas City Chiefs star fullback Tony Richardson helped lead kids through drills at various stations.

Chiefs' Secondary Should Shine In 2016 from ESPN

At cornerback, Kansas City's Brandon Flowers is listed as the ninth-ranked player in 2016. Flowers has been in the league since 2008 and is a scout favorite. He's already had a great career and our list suggests it will continue.

This project's latest rankings show that the Chiefs are in good shape now and in the future.

New York Giants 2013 Schedule Analysis from Athlon Sports

The first half of New York's opening month definitely looks sexier than the second half when it comes to matchups. The Giants open the season in Dallas with their first home game coming in Week 2 when Peyton Manning and Denver come to town for Manning Bowl III. After that, it's back-to-back road games in Carolina and Kansas City. The good news is that should the Giants stumble out of the gates, they will have the opportunity to turn things around before the end of September.

49ers Roster, 90-In-90 Breakdowns: Glenn Dorsey from Niners Nation

The Chiefs drafted Dorsey as a 3-technique defensive tackle out of LSU, and he absolutely dominated for two straight years. Then, in 2009, a regime change in Kansas City saw the Chiefs switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4. Dorsey was moved from the 3-tech to the 5-tech; this changed his responsibilities, nearly nullifying his explosiveness and limiting his ability to create havoc along the line.

Dorsey still had a couple of solid seasons with the Chiefs.
