Chiefs Support First Downs For Down Syndrome from The Mothership

The Chiefs Offensive Linemen participated in the 11th Annual Private Cellar Wine Tasting and Silent Auction event to support First Downs for Down Syndrome (FDFDS).

The FDFDS has been the charity of choice for the O-line and since it's inception in 1992, together they have raised nearly $7.6 million for the Down Syndrome Community. This charity is supported solely through tax-deductible contributions and fundraisers throughout the year.

With as busy as you are preparing for the draft, what are your interactions like with the players who are here for the offseason program?

"I enjoy being around them, because they give me energy. They give me a feel that everybody is working for a purpose and that purpose is 'Don't be satisfied with last year; let's build off of last year." They're good guys and you can't ask anything but to be around a bunch of guys that are committed to the ultimate goal."

Chiefs Haven't Forgotten Playoff Collapse from ESPN

Perhaps it's a good thing last year's playoff collapse against the Indianapolis Colts remains fresh on the minds of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs begin the second week of their offseason program on Monday and it could serve as motivation. The Chiefs surrendered a 38-10 third-quarter lead before eventually losing 45-44 to the Colts. And clearly they aren't over the way their 2013 season came to an end.

Different Paths To The NFL Lead To Same Result For Eric Fisher, Jahleel Addae from Central Michigan Life

On Dec. 29, 2013, two men's paths crossed in the backfield of Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.

"Come to the trenches with the big boys," said a towering 6-foot-7 Eric Fisher.

"I'm never scared bro," said hard-hitting safety Jahleel Addae.

Previously teammates at Central Michigan University, their paths from Mount Pleasant to the National Football League were quite different.

2014 Mock NFL Draft: Predicting Picks 17-32 from Guardian Libery Voice

23. Kansas City Chiefs-Wide Receiver Cody Latimer, Indiana Hoosiers. The Colts' painful 4th quarter collapse against Indianapolis in the playoffs last season points to a lot of different things, but a lack of playmaking ability (they managed just two field goals in the second half) might be the biggest. There will be a ton of wideouts with similar measurables at this point in the draft, but Latimner's 4.38 speed at 6-2, 215 pounds should separate him from the pack.

Twitter's New Design: The Impact And Early Results For Sports Teams & Leagues from Business 2 Community

Which approach is better? Given 76 percent of Twitter's monthly active users access the site via mobile, maybe the Rams have it right. Focus on a kick-ass mobile experience first, because that's what three-quarters of your traffic will see. But I still appreciate the desktop experience, which offers amazing opportunities to showcase photography and design creativity.

Which is better? There's likely common ground, which for now requires some trial and error with Twitter's header image, and some serious design skill (and patience). The Kansas City Chiefs may have found that happy medium. While perhaps lacking in splash, the team's mobile and desktop versions nonetheless bring a consistent experience for fans.

Alexa Harmon-Thomas, Daughter Of Derrick Thomas, Brings Complete Package To Track And Field from MaxPreps

Early on, Kelly Harmon saw her daughter display outstanding athleticism. That talent first showed on the track when Alexa Harmon-Thomas was 7 years old.

Harmon was coaching the sport and brought her daughter to practices. She didn't know if her daughter would like or be good in track, but the youngster excelled immediately.

Chalk it up to famous bloodlines. The daughter of former Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame linebacker, the late Derrick Thomas, has carved out an impressive track and field career at Lawrence Free State (Kan.) - one that has gained worldwide notoriety.
