Chiefs to practice without Marcus Peters, Steven Nelson for now from ESPN

Peters indicated he would return home to Oakland, California, where he will work out and remain in communication via Skype with Chiefs coaches.

"I'll take all the info I have from here, from this minicamp, I'll take it home with me and continue to study that to make sure I don't have a dropoff when I come back," Peters said.

Nelson indicated he would head to Arizona and train there.

The Chiefs drafted another Oregon State player, fifth-round linebacker D.J. Alexander. But he has graduated, so Alexander isn't bound by the NFL rule.

Personal experiences push Chiefs rookie LB Sage Harold's determination to excel from Chiefs Digest

"When my brother passed, that put everything in perspective, I'm going to do this for him," Harold said. "And so far I haven't failed him yet."

Harold's determination and work ethic as a young college freshman didn't fly under the radar, and he quickly caught the eye of former Philadelphia Eagles and Chiefs linebacker Akeem Jordan.

Jordan, an alumnus of James Madison, works out on campus during the offseason. And the eighth-year pro said during a telephone interview he noticed there was something different about Harold when compared to others.

"The maturity level was different," Jordan said. "He was a freshman and sophomore, I mean, the maturity was there already. Even though he was young, he just had the willingness to work and try to get better each and every day."

RB Keshawn Hill among rookie minicamp tryout players to sign with Chiefs from Chiefs Digest

The Chiefs signed running back Keshawn Hill, guard/center Melvin Meggs, center Daniel Munyer and offensive tackle Kelvin Palmer, according to Tuesday's NFL Transaction report.

Hill, Meggs and Munyer are bona fide rookies, while the 6-3, 302-pound Palmer originally entered the league in 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of Baylor with the Arizona Cardinals.

PAT rule change shouldn't affect Chiefs K Cairo Santos from ESPN

Chiefs second-year kicker Cairo Santos shouldn't have problems with the longer PAT attempt.

The 24-year-old Santos was 6-of-7 on field goal attempts between 30-39 yards as a rookie in 2014.

His lone miss came on a 37-yard attempt on the road against the Denver Broncos in Week 2.

Hall of Fame QB sympathizes with Brady from The Indianapolis Star

In the days leading up to Super Bowl IV in January 1970, it was reported Dawson — then quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs — and other players would be summoned to testify as part of a federal investigation into gambling. Though Commissioner Pete Rozell announced there was no evidence to even consider disciplinary action, Dawson was forced to make a public statement.

"And (the NFL) had somebody come in to question me," Dawson recalled Tuesday. "He said, 'You're the only person I've ever interviewed that fell asleep while I was doing the interview.' I was tired. But those are things you went through. What am I going to do?"

Like Brady, Dawson led his team to victory (23-7 over the Minnesota Vikings) and was named the game's MVP.

Kansas City not a Super Bowl finalist for 2019, 2020 from KMBC

Kansas City will not be hosting a Super Bowl in the near future, according to an NFL.com report.

Miami, Tampa, New Orleans and Atlanta are finalists for the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls, the NFL.com report said, meaning Kansas City would have to wait until at least 2021 before it could host a Super Bowl.

HOW THE ROONEY RULE SUCCEEDS ... AND WHERE IT FALLS SHORT from ABC7

After interviewing Todd Bowles to become the Philadelphia Eagles' secondary coach in January 2012, Andy Reid went to his longtime trusted assistant coach, David Culley.

"I've never interviewed anybody as good as that," Reid said.

Reid gave Bowles the job and, midway through the 2012 season, promoted him to defensive coordinator. A year later, Bowles moved on to become Arizona's defensive coordinator.

So after the Kansas City Chiefs, for whom Reid and Culley now work, beat Arizona in Week 14 last December, Culley found Bowles in the postgame scrum. Culley knew Bowles would be a hot head-coaching candidate when the calendar turned. In the previous five years, Bowles had interviewed for six head-coaching jobs. The knock on him, fair or not, was that he didn't interview well.

"I told him, 'Whatever you do during these head-coaching interviews you're about to go on, don't forget what you did with Andy, because Andy doesn't throw around those superlatives like that. Whatever you did then, do it to these other guys.' And, he did," Culley said.

Now, Pittsburg State's De'Vante Bausby is living out his dream as a player for his favorite team.

"Everybody is telling me ‘Welcome to Chiefs Kingdom,'" Bausby told the team's official website. "But little do they know that I have been a member since I was born."
