Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 4/9

Good morning! We have a pretty good day of Kansas City Chiefs news articles for you. [Note: Chiefs' PR, be sure to pay attention to the Joe Delaney Park story. Would be nice to see some organizational involvement there. Thanks.] Enjoy!

Here's Some Receiving Hope For The Chiefs from ESPN

On Monday, I noted the Kansas City Chiefs have none of the 14 players ESPN's Matt Williamson listed as true No. 1 receivers. The Chiefs were also shut out from Williamson's list of 11 receivers who deserve honorable mention...

...Williamson has followed up by issuing a list of 13 young receivers who could someday become true No. 1 receivers...

Haughton Building First Town Park, Student Helps Raise Funds from KSLA

The Town of Haughton is getting ready to have its own place to play.

The Bossier Parish town currently doesn't have its own park, but six acres of land has been recently acquired for a community green space, which will be named Joe Delaney Memorial Park, after a Haughton hero...

...The park will honor the memory of Joe Delaney, a Haughton High School grad who went on to play football in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs during the 1980s.

He died in 1983 while trying to save three kids from drowning while visiting a park in Monroe. Years ago, the town built a park to honor the athlete, but town leaders said it was too small and sold it to the school board. Alexander hopes the new park will be different.

Several Tigers Look To Improve Their Worth At Pro Day from The Daily Reveille

Beckham's stock has been skyrocketing this offseason. On the off chance he falls to the Saints at the No. 27 pick, they'll take him in the first round, Holder said, but more likely he'll go to the New York Jets at No. 18 or the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 23.

"I don't really think this Pro Day is going to help [Beckham] or hurt him," Holder said. "I think a lot of teams already view him pretty highly."
