Deadline Nearing For Branden Albert, Chiefs from KC Star
The Chiefs and offensive tackle Branden Albert have until 3 p.m. Monday to come to an agreement on a multi-year contract extension.
After that time, players who have been designated with the franchise tag cannot sign an extension until after the final game of the 2013 regular season...
...Albert, his agent BTI Sports and Chiefs general manager John Dorsey were not available for comment on the status of negotiations.
Week 13 vs. Broncos
The skinny: Pretty sweet of the NFL to give the Chiefs two games against the Broncos in a three-week span. The Chiefs actually kept it relatively close (17-9) against Denver last year, and it's the NFL so you never know what can happen, but ...
The pick: 31-20 Broncos.
The record: 5-7, and at least there aren't banners flying over the stadium.

With the Chiefs having drafted left tackle Eric Fisher first overall and unable to trade tackle Branden Albert, that has made reaching a long-term deal in Kansas City very difficult.
These Recruits Exceeded Expectations from Nole Nation
Hudson started 10 games as a true freshman in 2007, even playing some tackle. As a sophomore, Hudson would be named First-Team All-ACC.
He'd go on to earn First-Team All-ACC two more times in 2009 and 2010 and would also become a First-Team All-American in 2009 and 2010. Hudson also captured the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as a junior.
By the time he was done, Hudson became the most-decorated offensive lineman in Florida State history.
Hudson was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round with the No. 55 overall pick.
The Kansas City Chiefs Are On Everyone's Fantasy Sleeper List. Oh, No. from The Tulsa World
New coach. Effective quarterback (for six games last season). Jamaal Charles in the same system that made Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy fantasy studs. A pretty easy schedule. Plenty of Pro Bowlers on offense.
Every fantasy expert and magazine is picking the Chiefs to score a lot of points. Charles is inching into the top 5 running backs overall.
I agree with that, but not sure on the rest of it.
According to a high-ranking team official, 15-20 clubs attended a workout by former Stony Brook offensive tackle Michael Bamiro, a player who slipped through the cracks of the NCAA and NFL rulesbook and is now considered a free agent.

Bayou Queens Set For Opener from The Daily Comet
Bayou Queens coach Clyde "CJ" Maiden, a former coach of the Houma Bayou Bucks and Houma Conquerors now-defunct indoor football teams, said his team saw its first action of the year last week during an exhibition against the Dallas Darlings...

Daleville's Tony Richardson Starred As NFL Fullback; To Enter Wiregrass Sports Hall from The Dothan Eagle
"I wasn't a first-round draft choice," Richardson said earlier this week in a telephone interview from his home in Kansas City. "Coming from a small town like Daleville I just really had to bust my butt and work really hard to get where I am. It's definitely a different story. ... But every player - regardless of whether you're taken in the first round or not taken at all - you still have to work and bust your butt."
He agreed he may have been an "under-the-radar" player. But he also said that goes with the territory of playing fullback in the NFL. His job was to make others look good.
Full Weekend Of Activities To Benefit Charities from The Springfield News-Leader
The annual golf tournament, as in past years, sold out quickly and this year will include legendary former Kansas City Chiefs Neil Smith and Art Still, among others. And the addition of an all-star basketball game Saturday night will give fans another opportunity to see both local and state-wide celebrities.
And what about the more subtle misogyny embodied by the late and revered Derrick Thomas of the Kansas City Chiefs, who was killed in a car wreck two years ago? He left behind seven kids by five women, and no will-thus no guarantees of money or consideration for any of the children or any of the women.
The NFL claims it is doing more than ever to educate its recruits. Its preseason three-and-a-half-day symposia are supposed to make its rookies duly aware of their newfound responsibilities to their fans and their leagues and the kids who put their posters on the wall: To avoid the sleaze joints. Steer clear of the hucksters. Grow up quick.

3. Kansas City Chiefs: Andy Reid has one of the best running backs in the league with Jamaal Charles. Reid has one of the shakiest situations behind his starter. Rookie Knile Davis looked like a workout wonder with suspect instincts. Next up: Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray. This running game could collapse if Charles was hurt.
Chiefs Wary Of Locker Room Camera from OzarksFirst
If the NFL has its way, fans at Chiefs games will be able to take a peak into the K.C. lockerroom before kickoff.
As Alan Shope reports, that the lockerroom cam may not be a big hit with the players.
It's something that's not sitting well with coaches and players.
As part of their ongoing plan to field a more explosive offense, the Dolphins allowed tenured tight end Anthony Fasano to walk in free agency and replaced him with long-time New York Jet Dustin Keller, who signed a one-year, $4.25 million contract. While Keller is the faster player and more accomplished receiver, did Miami actually upgrade the position this offseason?

NFL Culture By Team (Part 1) from Sports Central
Kansas City Chiefs - This is a team that is in need of a makeover, both on and off the field. On, because they are not very good. Off, because this is a team with a startling recent history of petulant, bratty bullies from former head coach Todd Haley to former general manager Scott Pioli to former running back Larry Johnson. In a sense, they are sort of like the Raiders in that they project a sort of violence, but not in a sexy way you might grudgingly admire, like the Raiders do. The Raiders will steal your woman (with her enthusiastic consent) and leave tire tracks on your forehead. The Chiefs will punch you in the back and spit in your while you're in the bathroom.
Well, let's toss another group into the mix: the defensive line. The Sun Devil defensive front has often been a fearsome force, with Al Harris, Jim Jeffcoat, Shante Carver, Dexter Davis, Terrell Suggs, Will Sutton and others carrying on a great lineage that began in earnest with the subject of today's Summer School lesson: Curley Culp.
