Donald Stephenson gets a clean slate in Kansas City from ProFootballTalk

"There's some things that occurred last year, but it's a clean slate," Dorsey said at the league meetings, via Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star.  "So what he has to do is set the little things into motion that professionals do in terms of obtaining that starting position.

"So what you do is take little steps, ultimately building toward bigger goals that you set for yourself. And I think you go in and challenge yourself on a daily basis.  You go in and do the little things it takes to be truly professional — do not take this game for granted."

Mailbag, part I: Chances of Chiefs drafting Dorial Green-Beckham? from ESPN

I don't know if the chance of the Chiefs drafting Dorial Green-Beckham, the former Missouri wide receiver, in the first round were good before they signed Jeremy Maclin as a free agent. Whatever they were, those chances are a lot lower now that Maclin is with the Chiefs.

3. Pass rushers — 3A) Justin Houston, 3B) Von Miller, 3C) Ryan Kerrigan, 3D) Jason Pierre-Paul, 3E) Aldon Smith, 3F) Greg Hardy: Could be an amazing group. Houston, who currently bears the Kansas City Chiefs' franchise tag, will likely cash in soon after nearly breaking the NFL's single-season sack record last year. Kerrigan may not seem quite worthy of inclusion in this bunch at first blush but is coming off easily his best season (13½ sacks) and doesn't show up on the medical charts, police blotter or have substance-abuse issues in his past like the others.

NFL Draft 2015: Kansas City Chiefs Team Needs from With The First Pick

For a look at the Kansas City Chiefs' team needs entering the 2015 NFL Draft, I got together with Arrowhead Addict‘s Brett Gering. Below are my questions followed by his answers.

1. How have the team's draft needs changed since free agency opened?

Quick-hit thoughts around Patriots, NFL from ESPN

The "101 Awards" is a long-running tradition (since 1969) and while Belichick didn't attend the event to receive the award due to a scheduling conflict, his taped remarks expressed appreciation for the honor and also for what late Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt meant to the game of football and the AFC. One of the event's organizers, Gary Heise, relayed that Belichick told the story of how Hunt came over to him before one of the team's Super Bowl victories, shook his hand, and told him he hoped the Patriots would win because they were representing the AFC.

West column: Roaster lineup all set for Jamaal Charles from The Port Arthur News

All systems are go for the June 13 Port Arthur News Homecoming Roast of Jamaal Charles, with a head-table lineup that ranks right up with the most star-studded in the event's 12-year history. Appropriately enough, the cast of roasters for an honoree whose career rushing average of 5.2 yards has surpassed legendary Jim Brown's NFL record, starts with two of the greatest running backs ever to play in the state of Texas —  Little Joe Washington and Earl Campbell. Joining them will be Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Denver defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who will be going up against Reid and Charles twice a year in his latest job. Rounding out the roasters are West Orange-Stark ex Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks, who is arguably the best safety in the NFL, and Chiefs' radio play-by-play announcer Mitch Holtus.

Serena Williams runs well on knee, wows Miami Open crowd from The Sun-Sentinel

Since his surgery, Sock has played 11 matches in two weeks, including him winning the doubles title with Vasek Pospisil last week at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif. He will face Austrian Dominic Thiem on Sunday.

Sock attributed his success to his rehab training with Brent Salazar, an assistant strength and conditioning coach with the Kansas City Chiefs who played tennis in college at New Mexico.

Pitt State's Bausby runs wind-aided 4.22 in 40-yard dash at NFL Pro Day from The Claremore Daily Progress

Scouts from the Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins were in attendance. More team representatives were expected, but some did not come because they saw Lutman and Terry on Wednesday's pro day at KU in Lawrence.

4th Round: Jaye Howard, Defensive Tackle

Howard only played one year in Seattle. He was one of the final cuts in the summer of 2013, as the odd man out of a stacked defensive line. He now starts for the Kansas City Chiefs, playing defensive end in their 3-4 scheme. While Howard did not contribute for the Seahawks, he's playing well for the Chiefs, and seems in line to receive a multi-year deal from a team within the next offseason.
