Reports vary for the compensation; the most-frequently reported compensation is Dallas sending fifth- and seventh-round picks in 2017 for Cassel and a 2017 seventh-rounder. The Bills clear some cap space, so that's a plus, but lost the veteran backup they could very well need coming down the stretch of a playoff run.
The Packers' worst defeat under McCarthy, at least based on the point spread, was that shocker in mid-December 2011 at Arrowhead Stadium. Dismissed as an 11-point underdog, coach Romeo Crennel and quarterback Kyle Orton engineered a 19-14 upset. Kansas City has never lost in Green Bay (1989, 1990, 2003), and two assistant coaches for recent opponents of the Chiefs as well as an executive in personnel for an AFC team that has played them this season are expecting it to be close. "Green Bay is tough to beat at home," said an offensive assistant coach. "I think they'll probably win it, but it's going to be a fourth-quarter, last-second deal."
As he settled into his three-point stance early in the first quarter of the Chiefs’ 31-24 loss to the Denver Broncos on Thursday, James O’Shaughnessy had a feeling the ball would soon come his way. He could tell by the presnap call — he ended up running a drag route out of Andy Reid’s pet three tight end formations — and the Broncos’ presnap coverage. "I kind of had an idea I’d get a shot," O’Shaughnessy said.
A day after the Packers lost Lacy to an ankle injury, coach Mike McCarthy wasn't ruling out his star running back from returning to the field later this week and playing. "Eddie Lacy wants to play football. I don't think there's any question about that," McCarthy said Monday night. "So if Eddie can go, he'll go." Lacy suffered the injury to his right ankle in the Packers' 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.
Receiver Davante Adams, who missed a portion of Sunday's game with an ankle injury, will test the ankle in practice later this week, according to McCarthy. Adams felt better today, McCarthy said, and his status for next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs will be evaluated when the team resumes practice.
The Buccaneers also signed third-year defensive end Josh Martin, who spent the past two seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, and waived defensive end Kourtnei Brown.
The Missouri Supreme Court said on Tuesday it will not make a decision on an age discrimination lawsuit against the Kansas City Chiefs. The court will send the case back to a lower court for further action.
"I mean our starts were night and day, and obviously the energy and I think B.J Raji had an outstanding game, I would say its one of his, or was his best game as a Green Bay Packer in my opinion," said head coach Mike McCarthy. The improvements of the run defense surely welcomed as the Packers face Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs, whose averaging 4.9 yards a carry heading into week 3.
I’ll give you one example of what kind of guy Lamar Hunt was, what his character was like. We used to play at Municipal Stadium in Kansas City. And Mike Livingston and I drove up one day. It was like December and 5 below zero. And we parked and were walking toward the Stadium entrance. And here’s Lamar standing there, and you could tell he was just freezing. I said, "Lamar, what’s the matter? Why aren’t you inside?" He said, "Well, this guy here at the gate, he doesn’t know who I am, and I didn’t want to make any waves so I was just waiting for somebody."
Packers pass big test, brace for next | Sheboygan Press
The last time the Packers met the Chiefs in the regular season, they were 13-0 and seemingly invincible. The Chiefs beat them inside Arrowhead Stadium. Here comes another rematch, the Packers seemingly invincible again after vanquishing the two-time defending NFC champions. Still, the Chiefs are a playoff contender, and they’ll be plenty motivated after a devastating home loss against the Denver Broncos.
