Today's KC Chiefs news...

Chiefs rookie receiver Tyreek Hill as a football player? Pretty dang good so far  | The Kansas City Star

Hill is the most obvious player on the field. If you watched a Chiefs practice and didn't know anything about his past, or even about his ability, at some point you would turn to the person next to you and say something like, "Who the crap is that No. 81?" Even on a field full of elite athletes, he is a step faster.

Smith failed to lead the starting offense to a touchdown under identical circumstances as Bray: one minute remaining, ball on the defense’s 30-yard line. Smith advanced his team as far as the 10-yard line, but he took a sack -- or what would have been a sack had tackling been allowed -- and time expired.

Ex-Raider WR Streater fits in with Chiefs | Lindy's

"It’s been really good," said the third-year receiver out of Temple. "I’ve fit right into the offense and just try and go out there and make plays when I can." Streater has been working at the outside receiver spots, while getting numerous snaps working as the offense’s slot receiver. "Lining up on the slot, I feel like I can beat nickels." Streater said. "It’s a mismatch. I’m 6-3 and guys probably won’t think I can get open. I can fight inside or anywhere coach wants to put me; that’s where I’m going to make plays."

Rookie outside linebacker Dadi Nicolas and defensive lineman Jimmy Staten were then observed getting in each other’s faces and it appeared Nicolas threw a punch before teammates quickly separated the pair.
