Chiefs Flag Warriors Auditions from The Mothership

Flag Warriors have the opportunity to watch the Chiefs games from the sidelines, interact with fans, run across the field at Arrowhead Stadium and get paid for it.

The Chiefs are looking for male candidates ages 18 or older and out of high school to be the next Chiefs Flag Warriors. Applicants must have the physical endurance to be able to run the length of the field after every Chiefs score and in any weather condition. Applicants are also expected to wave a 12'X6' flag while sprinting during pre-game. Rain or shine, Chiefs Flag Warriors are relied upon to keep Arrowhead Stadium the loudest stadium in the NFL.

Previewing The Second Week Of OTAs from Chiefs Spin

The Chiefs return to the practice field Tuesday for the next segment of three-day voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) with intriguing scenarios.

Whether outside linebacker Justin Houston and cornerback Brandon Flowers, both of whom weren't present last week, make an appearance remains to be seen.

Players Who Must Improve: OT Eric Fisher from ESPN

Here we'll begin a series that looks at five young Kansas City Chiefs players who need to make progress from where they were in 2013. Forget for a moment about the Chiefs getting help from free-agent or draft additions. If these players come through, the Chiefs will be in good shape in 2014.

We'll begin with offensive tackle Eric Fisher.

Dee Ford Drawing Comparisons To Derick Thomas In Kansas City Chiefs' Workouts from AL.com

An All-State player at St. Clair County in 2008, Ford is getting extra exposure during practice, too, because outside linebacker Justin Houston hasn't attended the drills. The OTAs are voluntary, and Houston is in the final year of his contract.

Hali, Kansas City's other starter at outside linebacker, isn't concerned by Houston's absence, and he's excited by Ford's presence.

Competition Strengthens Bond For Chiefs' DeMarcus And David Van Dyke from Chiefs Spin

A change in environment could be intimidating during the initial adjustment process, especially for an NFL job carrying pressure for a roster spot.

But having a familiar face around on a daily basis certainly helps for new Chiefs DeMarcus and David Van Dyke, both of whom happen to be first cousins.

The Chiefs signed DeMarcus, 25, to a reserve/future contract on Jan. 11 and David, 23, as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee State on May 12.

Green Enjoys Getting Extra 'Push' From Jackson from The Lancaster Eagle Gazette

Smith and Dalton both fall into a similar area to set the market on the mid-level quarterback contract. The agents for both parties can point to the seven-year, $126 million deal (with $54 million) guaranteed that Jay Cutler received in January and make an argument that their clients could be close comparisons.

Neither Smith nor Dalton boast the big arm or pedigree of the Bears quarterback, but Dalton has led his team to the playoffs each of the past three years. He also has a better interception percentage than Cutler and the same adjusted yards per attempt.

LeSean McCoy Not Worried About Darren Sproles, Future Contract Situation from NJ.com

"I don't know how people take it," McCoy said. "It was a question and I was being honest. I can't worry about how other people taking it. If you ask me today, it will be the same answer. Over the last three years, I don't think there's been a back more productive."

He's not wrong. Comparing his rushing, receiving and TD totals over the past three seasons with four of the NFL's top RBs during that span, McCoy comes out on top.

LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
4,983 all-purpose yards, 36 TDs

Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
4,860 all-purpose yards, 37 TDs

Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
4,854 all-purpose yards, 22 TDs

Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
4,775 all-purpose yards, 39 TDs

Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
3,817 all-purpose yards, 26 TDs

Andy Reid, Ex-Eagles Coach, Keeps Tradition Alive: Chiefs' Cheeseburgers Are On Him from NJ.com

Speaking to NFL Network, Kansas City Chief quarterback Alex Smith said Reid is known to treat his players to fatty fast food -- specifically, cheeseburgers.

Here is the exchange, according to ArrowheadPride.com:

Fantasy Football Team Preview: Seattle Seahawks from FOX News

When it comes to defense and special teams, only Kansas City scored more fantasy points than Seattle last year. Though the Chiefs had 32 more points than the Seahawks, Seattle did it without a punt or kickoff returned for a touchdown. Kansas City had two of each.
