Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 5/3

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Enjoy!


Dorsey: "You Would Like To Get A Slam Dunk" from The Mothership

Q: If you trade back, how much of that is because you don't really love someone at your spot or what the conversation is?

DORSEY: "You do what's in the best interest of the Kansas City Chiefs. A man told me once, 'never pass up a good player', but if I can acquire some additional picks in a draft that could or could not be deep, then I'll do that. I'm going to do what's in the best interest of the Kansas City Chiefs future."

Chiefs Rumble Performs At Kauffman Center from The Mothership

"The Chiefs Rumble is a professional drum line, whose primary function is to entertain and excite Chiefs fans on game days," Matt Arnet, Director of the Rumble, explained. "We also participate in events outside of the Chiefs, during the offseason, such as performing with the Kansas City Symphony through the Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks series."

The Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks series is a program encouraging children to get involved with music. The Kansas City Symphony provides the instruments, a workbook and training for the teachers at $5 per student.

Chiefs' Dorsey Sleeping Better Ahead Of Draft from The Associated Press via FS Kansas City

"I'm a glass-half-full kind of guy," he said. "I believe everybody we select will help."

That belief is only emboldened by the fact that the Chiefs had more time to prepare for this year's draft. Dorsey was hired shortly after the calendar flipped to 2013, and was forced to piece together his first class from the knowledge he gleaned while working in the front office in Green Bay and the legwork done by Kansas City scouts working under the previous regime.

Now, he's been able to tweak his scouting department to suit not only his needs but also those of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, and spend an entire season developing a plan for the draft.

GM Dorsey Not Tipping Hand For Draft from Chiefs Spin

Notes: Dorsey said he did not watch Alex Smith's commencement speech at the University of Utah, but heard about it ... "I'm sure he did a fine job," Dorsey said of Smith ... The extra two weeks waiting for the draft doesn't affect how the Chiefs approach the draft, but Dorsey said it's important to "not overthink it" ... The added benefit of the longer wait for the draft is an opportunity for the Chiefs to catch their breath ... "I think it gives you a little bit more time to relax and recharge, just sit back," Dorsey said.

Western, Chiefs Still Discussing Future Of Training Camp from St. Joseph News-Press

The Chiefs will be back in St. Joseph this summer for the fifth year, ending the guaranteed portion of the current 10-year contract. The team pledged to keep training camp in-state through at least 2019, but beginning in 2015, only five one-year mutual options exist to keep the annual event on Western's campus.

Officials from the two sides have met a few times since February to start preliminary discussions and plan to continue talks leading up to and during the team's stay starting in late July.

Hits And Misses In Past Drafts from The Spokesman Review

Texas (31)

Best: Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was the 73rd choice in 2008 and has become one of the league's most dangerous runners and receivers.

Worst: A seventh overall pick should not be a journeyman, but safety Michael Huff, late of Denver, has been that since Oakland took him in 2006.

Alex Smith Details Troubles With 49ers During A Speech To Utah Graduates from The San Jose Mercury News

Alex Smith returned Thursday night to the University of Utah for a commencement address that proved inspiring and highly introspective, especially when it came to his first job out of college: 49ers quarterback...

...Accountability, self-deprecation and encouragement punctuated Smith's speech to some 8,000 graduates. He relayed three concepts that drove him through his "ups and downs" the last 10 years: "1.) Identify my weakness; 2.) Embrace the new; 3.) Letting go of what I cannot control."

Seamster does not recall what his final answer was to that question or many others, but he did get positive vibes from all his visits to NFL team facilities, including the New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs. The New England Patriots also came to see Seamster in Murfreesboro, and the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens have recently shown interest.

Schrager's Mock Draft 4.0: Which Quarterbacks Could Free Fall? from FOX Sports

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Marqise Lee, WR, USC: This is more about fit than anything else. Lee is a classic West Coast offense receiver and Andy Reid's offense is the West Coast offense that'd best suit him. Most teams have Oregon State's Brandin Cooks rated higher than Lee, but for Kansas City, Lee's the guy.

20. Kansas City Chiefs (MOCK TRADE WITH Arizona Cardinals) -- Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State: Cooks might be the speediest wideout in the draft. Maybe he's off the board by now. But if he's there the Chiefs have to worry he won't make it past the Eagles. So they dial up the phone and slide up a few spots to grab Cooks, who is Andy Reid's new DeSean Jackson.

D.A.R.E. Graduation from The Macon Chronicle-Herald

"As many of you know, I had a small accident in November," said Meers. "I fell 75 feet entering Arrowhead Stadium and doctors are not allowing me to wear my K.C. Wolf suit."
