The Top 10 Celebrations of 2015 from The Mothership

Andy Reid, for his overall record, among many other reasons, is deservedly regarded around the NFL as one of the league's best head coaches.

A theme commonly heard among Reid's players (and as recently as Jamaal Charles during Super Bowl week) is the importance he puts on allowing his players to "let their personality show."

That mentality, in addition to making the players feel comfortable, makes for some rather interesting on-the-field celebrations.

Here are the top 10 Chiefs celebrations of 2015:

Will Chiefs take CB in consecutive first rounds for first time in history? from ESPN

The Chiefs were thin at cornerback last season and that fragile depth would take a hit if veteran Sean Smith departs as a free agent. Smith's departure would leave only one cornerback that the Chiefs know they can rely on, that being Peters.

Otherwise, the Chiefs have a lot of uncertainty at cornerback. Phillip Gaines began last year as a starter but missed most of the season because of a torn ACL. Another of last year's draft picks, Steven Nelson, has potential but is still a developmental prospect.

Chiefs waive OL Tavon Rooks from Chiefs Digest

The Chiefs waived offensive lineman Tavon Rooks with a non-football illness designation, according to Friday's NFL Transactions report.

Rooks suffered a heart attack during training camp last year, as first reported by ChiefsDigest.com and The Topeka Capital-Journal on Sept. 10.

Five moves each AFC West team should make from ESPN

3. Let Derrick JohnsonTamba Hali and Mike DeVito leave. As brutal as it is to see longtime contributors leave, Dorsey needs to make a hard choice or two this offseason. Letting Hali go is an obvious decision, as the Chiefs have a replacement waiting in 2014 first-rounder Dee Ford.

Johnson is tougher, if only because there's no obvious inside linebacker waiting to take his spot in the lineup. But as a 33-year-old with a torn Achilles in his recent past, Johnson is not a great bet to age well. The franchise tag treats all linebackers equally, so the $13.5 million or so Johnson would get with the franchise tag would be totally out of line with what even great inside linebackers get in their deals. Unless they can get him on a one- or two-year deal with a hometown discount, the Chiefs will need to save their money and invest it on younger players, such as defensive lineman Jaye Howard or guard Jeff Allen.

Chiefs waive tackle who had heart attack in training camp last year from ProFootballTalk

The team took care of his medical bills last year when he was hospitalized. But while his football career's over, the former Saints draft pick said then he was grateful to simply be alive for his daughter.

LPGA stars shine during annual Founders Cup media day from The Scottsdale Independent

As expected, the LPGA pros dominated the challenges, but not without help from the golf prodigies of the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program.

Woods kicked off media day after receiving tips from Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer, Nick Lowery. Members of the media and the community had the chance to watch the LPGA stars, LPGA-USGA Girls Golf members, and former MLB pitcher Russ Ortiz attempt to break glass targets in a chipping contest on the range, according to a press release.
