Arrowheadlines: Tony Romo talk won’t stop, NFL Draft re-do

New, comments

Tony Romo and the quarterback dominoes | The MMQB

In Kansas City, Andy Reid has seen the ceiling of Alex Smith, and it is nice. Nice, as in final eight of the NFL … not as is final two. Reid has never minded upsetting the apple cart for a potentially special player. Romo would be that. Smith is mature enough to take this, to understand the addition of Romo would be good for the team. Smith wouldn’t pout. He’d be a team guy. That’s why the Chiefs make sense too.

While other teams (specifically the Broncos) have been mentioned as possibility, there’s a clear confluence of opportunity and proximity there. Romo clearly doesn’t want to play for a rebuilding team, or one too far away as his family is about to welcome a third child.

So the opportunity to easily leapfrog Tom Savage or gently nudge Alex Smith aside provide reasonable alternatives for the soon-to-be 37-year-old Romo.

Now four years in, Chiefs quarterback Tyler Bray eager to prove growth | The Kansas City Star

When the season came to a close following a divisional-round loss to Pittsburgh, Bray said he planned to spend the offseason in Fresno, Calif., where he works out.

When he returns for the start of the offseason workout program in mid-April, he’ll be eager to show how much he’s improved while taking “mental reps” in practice.

“I think I’ve grown a lot when it comes to understanding the offense … from the first couple of years where I was still trying to figure things out,” Bray said. “Now, I think I’ve got a pretty good grasp on everything.”

The multiple benefits of Wyngate’s location are exactly what drew Anthony and Jessica Sherman to the community.

“Friends of ours live here and we simply fell in love with the beautiful neighborhood,” Jessica Sherman said. “It’s an ideal place to raise a family—open space, lots of young families and children, close to schools. It has everything we wanted, and more.”

Anthony Sherman, a fullback for the Kansas City Chiefs, can quickly access the highway for his commute to Arrowhead Stadium for practice and game day.

“Wyngate feels secluded, but everything we need is handy—shopping, dining, entertainment and an easy drive to the stadium,” Jessica Sherman said.

NFL Draft do-over: Picking the first round of 2016 over again | Fox Sports

The Texans’ defense was one of the best in the NFL, allowing the fewest yards of any team. The offense, on the other hand, was not. They could have used a sparkplug like Tyreek Hill, who was a dynamic playmaker for the Chiefs.

Why not Christian McCaffery for Chiefs in first round of draft? | ESPN

That’s why the Chiefs should consider Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey with their first-round draft pick, which is 27th overall. McCaffrey might not be an every-down back next season, or ever. He’s only about 200 pounds.

But Charles played much of his Chiefs career at around 200 pounds. So maybe McCaffrey could be more of the backfield solution than it appears.
