Andy Reid recently reiterating his confidence in Alex Smith hasn’t stopped speculation that he’ll be out of a job because of Tony Romo. Should the Chiefs change plans, $9.7 million of cap room will be gained by walking away from Smith’s $16.9 million cap number and next season’s unguaranteed $13.3 million salary. A short-term Romo deal could be easily structured with a 2017 cap number significantly less than Smith’s cap savings.
Hill is simply the most electrifying player in the NFL. He's a threat to score every time he touches the ball. He would've went much higher in both the real draft and this re-draft if not for major character concerns. Hill pled guilty to domestic assault after a 2014 incident involving his pregnant girlfriend.
I believe it will take the No. 12 pick to acquire him, and possibly more. The trading window officially opens March 9, but unofficial talks will take place before then. If Belichick doesn’t receive a first-round offer right away, he can hang onto Garoppolo until draft day and try to drive up the price.
According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, there is a "growing sense" the Chiefs are leaning towards letting Smith go if they can land Romo or Garoppolo.
"The blacks never got a fair hand until Wilt came along," longtime rival Bill Russell told the Inquirer in 1986. "I'm talking about being underpaid, never getting endorsements, and weird things like not getting cars. The white players often were given cars for advertising reasons. The black players got discounts. But Wilt – I have to give him credit. He was the first to have leverage and the first to exercise it. Whether he was threatening to box professionally or play tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, he was getting his money. I guarantee that."
Eric Berry, a safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, is this year’s keynote speaker. Berry battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2014. He returned for a seventh season with the Chiefs in 2016. Other notable guests include formers Huskers Rex Burkhead, Ameer Abdullah, Jeremiah Sirles, Quincy Enunwa and Kenny Bell.
Last year, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas came up to Lincoln to work with Williams. Recruits often point that out as a selling point, and I’ve heard that Williams touts that to recruits as well.
