"I love this pick for the Chiefs in every respect, and barring anything unforeseen, I just do not see how Morse doesn't turn out to be anything but a huge success for them early on," Riddick wrote.
"I’ve got all kinds of stuff on the wall," Bell said from his Kansas City home. "But that [degree] is one thing I did not have, and I promised my dad I would get it." Bell’s parents died more than a decade ago, but he still was determined to fulfill his promise. Last year, after tracking down his pencil-written transcript, he went back and took three classes to complete his degree in recreation, park and leisure studies.
In October 2009, Foot & Ankle Specialist journal printed the results of a study on patterns and causes of Achilles tendon injuries in the NFL from 1997-2002. Its findings, if you happen to be a Kansas City Chiefs fan, are not particularly encouraging: Players discovered that they had "a greater than 50 percent reduction in their power ratings" after the injury. And 32 percent of those who ruptured an Achilles didn't play another regular-season NFL snap after the injury.
NFL hall-of-famer Willie E. Lanier Sr. has donated $500,000 to Morgan State University, his alma mater, to establish an endowed business ethics lectureship.

His first client was Jared Allen, then a Kansas City Chiefs defensive end, who, after M.M.A.-style training, went, Mr. Glazer said, from "a big stiff lineman with no hip mobility" and just seven and a half quarterback sacks to one who pulled off 15½ the next season, the best year of his career at the time. Mr. Allen gave some credit to his off-season training with Mr. Glazer, and word quickly spread.
Agnew has been invited to the Kansas City Chiefs' rookie minicamp this weekend. Reached on Wednesday, he said he could not disclose why he failed the Packers' physical, but was confident he would pass the Chiefs' test.
Interestingly enough, that same Broncos team was also fined $950,000 and lost a third-round pick in the 2004 NFL Draft for circumventing the salary cap from 1996 to 1998. In Denver, most of that — all of that — has been conveniently swept under the rug. Banners still hang high. Legacies are intact. And the Broncos are the gold standard, locally and beyond.
All that aside, Earnest, a noted Kansas City Chiefs fan, arguably could be considered the unlikeliest of allies or defenders of Brady in the wake of his now-standing four-game suspension. Nevertheless, Earnest went to bat for Brady, suggesting the quarterback can still be a great role model for children, despite the stain on his reputation.
We are going to learn not only what happened, but more important why and how. For this installment, we will see screenshots of three of Kansas City’s seven sacks recorded in a 19-7 win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 17.
