Eric Berry: I'm not going to play under franchise tag | NFL.com

"I'm definitely not going to play under the franchise tag this year," Berry said. "I want to end my career in Kansas City. I want to play there. I love the city, I love the vibe, I love my teammates. I really look at them more than teammates. We've been through a lot and they supported me a lot. And the organization. But I don't feel comfortable playing under the franchise tag this year."

So in an interview with The Star on Thursday, Berry made it clear that he had no intention of playing next season under the franchise tag again. “I’ll just take that time to chill with my family, honestly, (and) I’ll sit the season out,” Berry said, when asked what he’ll do if the Chiefs tag him again. “I just want what’s right. That’s it.”

Proclamations in early February about what a player will do come the start of the regular season should always be taken with a rather sizable grain of salt, but the Chiefs have another reason to avoid using the tag on Berry. They may need it to ensure defensive tackle Dontari Poe stays off of the open market in March.

Mellinger Minutes: Analysis on the Super Bowl, Chiefs, Royals, KU, K-State and more | The Kansas City Star

It just makes so much sense to do it this year. I’ve written about this some, but this draft appears to have four strong candidates who would fit what the Chiefs do, the team has extra picks if it needed to trade up, and they have a quarterback they know they can win with under contract for 2017, so they wouldn’t be drafting a guy with the pressure of having to start a rookie in the season opener. Alex Smith’s contract becomes easy to get out of after the 2017 season, or the Chiefs could keep him, meaning they could make a more informed decision after seeing how Smith and the draft pick perform this year.

Scott Pioli (remember him?) is back in the Super Bowl. | The Kansas City Star

Here, beneath the reality TV headlines of Goodell vs. Brady, is one of the more fascinating subplots of Super Bowl week: After an epic failure as the No. 1 guy with the Chiefs, Pioli is working for a fourth trophy as a No. 2 against the dynasty he helped build. It is, if we’re all being honest, an unnecessary slap to those who rooted for the Chiefs on both sides of Pioli’s disastrous run in Kansas City.

“I’ll be clear. There is no percentage of me that wants the Patriots to win. That’s zero percent,” Pioli told the Daily News in a rare interview. “Do I pull for them and want to see them succeed? Absolutely. Bill is like an older brother to me. He’s 12 years older than me, but I’ve known him since I was in college.”

Junious “Buck” Buchanan was the first player taken in the 1963 American Football League Draft.

“We even went to the same CEGEP (Quebec junior college),” Darche said via telephone. “I hadn’t really heard of him until he started at McGill, I kind of followed him (online) and thought, ‘Well, this guy in med school seems to be pretty good.’ “After we met, I followed his career and we kept in touch and then he was drafted by the Chiefs (sixth round in ’14) and I thought, ‘What are the odds of that happening?’ He comes to my house regularly and my kids love him. He’s like their cool uncle Larry (Duvernay-Tardif’s nickname with his Kansas City teammates).”
