Chiefs embracing their youth at cornerback from ESPN

This year, the top three cornerbacks are Peters, Gaines and Steven Nelson, a third-round draft pick last season who played little as a rookie. Nelson has been one of the stars for the Chiefs through the first couple weeks of offseason practice.

"It brings a certain energy and excitement to it,'' Sutton said. "Sean was a veteran guy with experience. But anybody that comes in here has got to see there's great opportunity for you here.''

The Chiefs have embraced that youth at corner. Among the others who could get early playing time at cornerback is rookie KeiVarae Russell, a third-round draft pick.

Schottenheimer felt everything started with the quarterback, left tackle, pass rushers and cornerbacks. But McCarthy has added more positions since arriving in Green Bay.

"My personal belief is that the tight end position on offense and the safety position on defense has now gone into that level of importance," McCarthy said.

The Kansas City Chefs had a season full of contrasts, first a streak of five straight defeats that made her think the worst fans; subsequently they had an important dynamic of 11 straight victories, including his first playoff victory in 20 years against the Texans. The winning streak ended in New England, as a bad defensive approach, and a bad offensive management always disappointing Alex Smith, were decisive to the Patriots.

For the 2016 season they have undergone few changes, and have reinforced the important positions. They had a great free agency, reinforcing the offensive line and keeping most of their free agents, thus achieving project that will continue the project of Andy Reid.
