Chiefs Host Students for Black History Month Conference from The Mothership

On Friday, in honor of Black History Month, 50 students from Kansas City Public Schools visited Arrowhead Stadium for a video conference, which examined the contributions of African American pioneers in pro football.

The program, African American Trailblazers, was created by the Pro Football Hall of Fame (PFHOF) and is designed to be highly interactive and aligns with national standards of education.

The video was presented by Pro Football Hall of Fame's Jerry Csaki via uplink and also featured Chiefs Legends, such as PFHOF LB Bobby Bell and honorary Ambassador Georgia Buchanan, widow of PFHOF DT Buck Buchanan.

QB Chase Daniel Inducted into the University of Missouri Hall of Fame from The Mothership

Two hours is the time it takes to drive from Kansas City to Columbia, or for Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel, from the place of his current life to his past.

Daniel joined his wife, Hillary, for that drive Friday morning in order to get to the University of Missouri, where he would be commemorated in the school's Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday night.

"I really just poured my heart out," Daniel said of the conversation with Hillary on the drive over. "Just saying good memories, bad memories and everything in between that's meant so much to me from this university."

Deadline is Quickly Approaching for STM Signing Bonus from The Mothership

The Signing Bonus program's deadline is just a few days away. Some lucky Season Ticket Members (STMs) have already won great prizes, including a trip to the Pro Bowl, a private suite for a 2015 game, Scout Investment Club Level passes and more.

The Singing Bonus allows STMs who renew their tickets to be entered into a drawing to receive prizes, such as tickets to the Super Bowl, a signed jersey or catch the Chiefs take on the Lions in London.

The organization wants to recognize the dedication, loyalty and support of STMs and offer a chance to be rewarded for renewing their memberships.

Chase Daniel confident he'll return to Chiefs for 2015 season from KC Star

Daniel is entering the final season of a three-year, $10 million he signed in 2013 and is set to make $4.8 million next season.

The Chiefs, who are strapped against the salary cap, could save $3.8 million by cutting Daniel, but that would leave them with an inexperienced trio - Aaron Murray, Terrelle Pryor and Tyler Bray - behind Smith.

Daniel hopes it won't come to that.

"I'm looking forward to this offseason program starting April 20, and we'll go from there," he said.

Mailbag: Would Chiefs draft a QB this year? from ESPN

I wouldn't think this to be a year the Chiefs would invest in another quarterback but knowing how John Dorsey and Andy Reid feel about having young quarterbacks to develop, it wouldn't surprise me. But the Chiefs already have Aaron Murray, Terrelle Pryor and the injured Tyler Bray, so they have a crowd.

Alex Smith stunned by 49ers upheaval from The Contra Costa Times

Alex Smith heard the shouts Saturday as he walked toward No. 17 green at Pebble Beach.

"Come back to us, Alex!" someone yelled. "We love you."

Smith was grateful for the affection. But the former 49ers quarterback is now a fixture in Kansas City after two seasons there with the Chiefs, the team he represented in this weekend at AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Only three years ago in the very same event, he spent a day caddying for his then-coach, Jim Harbaugh. Now, both are ex-49ers. So that glorious day in 2012 must seem like a very long time ago.

'Race for Love' Raises Funds for Beaufort Domestic Violence Shelter from WSAV

Valentine's Day in Beaufort meant the third annual 'Race 4 Love' for Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse (CODA). Runners gathered at the Cat Island course on Saturday morning to raise funds for the nonprofit that helps victims of domestic abuse in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton counties...

...Even Beaufort native Kansas City Chiefs player Ron Parker joined to support the cause. He spoke on his stance against domestic violence, and sounded the air horn for runners to get going.

NFL franchise tags coming, and this year's likeliest recipients from The Toronto Sun


According to reports, he and the Chiefs aren't anywhere close to agreeing on a long-term deal. He had 22 sacks last year and has 43 since 2012. Tag, you're it.
