Chiefs GM John Dorsey Isn't Satisfied from The Mothership
After just two seasons as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, John Dorsey has led an organization that has seen the best turnaround in franchise history. The nine-win improvement from 2012 (2-14) to 2013 (11-5) during his first year leading the Chiefs is the best ever for the franchise from one year to the next.
In 2014, the Chiefs finished with a 9-7 record, which marked just the third time in 19 years that the Chiefs had back-to-back winning seasons.
Despite that success, Dorsey isn't ready to pat himself on the back just yet.
"I'm really never satisfied to be quite honest with you," he explained. "Until you reach that ultimate mark, that's what we all strive for. You'll never truly be satisfied; I don't think you can be.
"So right now what we do is we always talk about—rolling our sleeves up and going to work. We'll do that every day until we hit that ultimate mark."
From a fan standpoint, one of the highlights of the NFL annual meetings is the awarding of the compensatory picks that will be a part of the year's draft. The meetings formally begin Monday in Phoenix and the picks could be awarded by the end of the day.
If so, today is a meaningful one for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Kelce recently posted a video to his Instagram of a pretty mean-looking workout. It includes balancing on two BOSU balls, Battling Ropes Jumping Jacks, and, finally, a Split-Squat Jump with Battling Ropes, which you can view above.

Cleveland Cavaliers, Brew Kettle launch All For One ale this week from Cleveland.com
Russo lauded the cooperation between Heinen's as the core distributor, the team and the brewery.
"We did this in a couple of months - everyone working on a common goal - the recipe, the brewing," said Russo, who bought The Brew Kettle from Chris McKim in February 2013. "It was a great partnership."
Brew Kettle and team officials said the joint venture between a brewery and professional sports team is pretty rare.
At the beginning of this NBA season, the Portland Trail Blazers introduced Schonz Red Session Ale, a nod to Hall of Fame broadcaster Bill Schonely, nicknamed "The Schonz." It is brewed by Pyramid Brewing Co., which was founded about 60 miles north of Portland.
In the NFL, Kansas City Chiefs fans could quaff Kingdom Red Ale at Arrowhead Stadium this past season. Anheuser-Busch makes the stadium-only beer.

18. Kansas City Chiefs -- Brandon Scherff, OL, Iowa: The Chiefs added Ben Grubbs but need more depth on the offensive line. If Scherff slips out of the top 15, it would be tough for John Dorsey and Andy Reid to pass on the versatile blocker.

The Browns seem to believe they landed a No. 1 receiver after signing Dwayne Bowe last week after Bowe was released by the Chiefs.
The problem is that Bowe's production over the past three seasons isn't that of a No. 1 receiver, something Kansas City obviously recognized when it dumped him with three years left on the $56 million contract he signed in 2013.
Bowe hasn't caught more than 60 passes or finished with more than 801 receiving yards since 2011. He has only eight touchdowns in that span, including none last year, when the Chiefs' entire receiving corps was kept out of the end zone.
Chris Borland Retirement: Is Football Worth It? from The International Business Times
Researchers have found CTE in the posthumous examination of brains of 70 former NFL players who took many hits in their glory days.
Those organs included that of the late Junior Seau, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this year after a 20-year career as a linebacker. While playing, Seau started a foundation to support troubled youth. But after retiring, he seemed to have trouble adjusting to a new lifestyle. He started to drink, gamble and take drugs. After he killed himself at age 43 in 2012, his family authorized a study of his brain tissue, fearing that brain trauma from years of playing football may have played a role in his death. A report released in January 2013 confirmed that his brain showed signs of CTE.
Jovan Belcher was only 25 years old in December 2012 when he shot and killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in front of the practice facility of the Kansas City Chiefs, his former team. A study of his brain revealed that he, too, had CTE.
