Heads up: Help prevent concussions from The Bellingham Herald
Coaches were instructed by master trainer Sosnowski, a former high school football coach and current high school athletic director from Boise, Idaho. Sosnowski played college football, then signed a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Sosnowski instructed coaches on proper helmet and shoulder-pad fitting, heat stroke and cardiac arrest protocols and concussion recognition and response. He also guided coaches through drills that reinforced proper tackling and blocking techniques in order to reduce helmet contact and possible concussions.
Chiefs 2016 training camp primer from Today's Pigskin
The Kansas City Chiefs took a rather passive approach to the offseason, after making big moves—like bringing in WR Jeremy Maclin—the year before. They traded back in the draft and didn't make the big, splashy signings, instead allowing players like CB Sean Smith to sign elsewhere.
That approach shows that the Chiefs clearly believe they are already in position to win in 2016 and they feel very good about the roster as it stands today. No huge adjustments were needed, they felt and they hope to pick back up in Week One right where they left off.
