The two-week period where teams can designate franchise or transition players begins. Chiefs safety Eric Berry, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones and Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short are among the players most likely to be franchised. Berry and Cousins were franchised in 2016. Second franchise tags on Berry and Cousins provide for a 120 percent increase over their 2016 numbers. Berry's would be $12,967,200, and Cousins' would be $23,943,600.
Ortega's Caracol in the Galleria area was visited by plenty of sports talent: former NFL quarterback Vince Young; Buffalo Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander; former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor; Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston; former NFL linebacker Erick Wilson; former NFL running back Maurice Jones-Drew; Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy; and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, to name a few.
The taxes haven’t been paid in four years, neither have the Homeowners Association dues. A family renting the house moved out months ago and nobody can find Richardson, who played for the Chiefs from 1995 to 2005. That includes the city of Overland Park, which has tried to take him to court twice over violations, including holes in the roof, wood rot, overgrown bushes and trees. Richardson was a no-show both times. And Richardson’s troubles don’t stop there.
Tom Brady is drafted in the 6th round by brilliant GM Carl Peterson, instead of G Darnell Alford. He languishes on the bench behind Elvis Grbac and Warren Moon. The Chiefs finish 7-9, Gunther Cunningham is fired at season's end, Grbac moves on to Baltimore and Brady sees his opportunity. The Ravens win the Super Bowl.
Live from Super Bowl LI in Houston, The Star’s Sam Mellinger and Terez Paylor discussed one of the greatest Super Bowls of all time, and the lessons the Chiefs can take from it. They cover the different positions the Chiefs need to improve at to get to the big game, and how the quarterback position needs to perform better to get there. They also cover Tom Brady’s all-time standing, the ridiculous Julian Edelman catch and much, much more.
The Seen: Former Tennessee Titans, all-pro running back Eddie George, model Nicole Murphy, University of Texas legend Vince Young, recording artist and talk show host Adrienne Bailon Houghton, recording artist Israel Houghton, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians, newly retired NFL wide receiver Steve Smith, Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Steven Johnson, NFL player James Anderson, singer/songwriter Ryan Cabrera and international model Carissa Rosario.
The 55-year-old man facing a possible life in prison sentence in the shooting death of a former NFL player Joe McKnight, entered his plea today in Jefferson Parish. Ronald Gasser pleaded not guilty to a charge of second degree murder. His lawyers says this is a case about self-=defense and reasonable use of force.
Also, the New York Giants’ Michael Strahan, who attended Texas Southern; the San Francisco 49ers’ Jerry Rice, who went to Mississippi Valley State; the Green Bay Packers’ Willie Davis; the Oakland Raiders’ Willie Brown, both of Grambling; the Washington Redskins’ Ken Houston, who went to Prairie View A&M; and the Kansas City Chiefs’ Willie Lanier, of Morgan State were honored among others.
It’s still too early for me to be talking about specific players but you can see some of the logic here. You bring in a linebacker to replace Derrick Johnson, a defensive tackle to add to a line that could be losing Dontari Poe and another safety because you always need safeties.
In addition to those two Johnson County soccer developments, Kansas City, Mo., opened Swope Soccer Village, which has nine soccer fields. In Grandview, developers including former Kansas City Chiefs player Deron Cherry are working on a 230-acre development anchored by 15 soccer fields. Also, the Wyandotte County Youth Soccer Complex, which consists of 12 fields, is set to open this summer.
"C'mon, Lenny! Pump it in there, baby!" shouts Stram, head football coach of the Kansas City Chiefs when the video was taped almost five decades ago during Super Bowl IV. "Just keep matriculatin' the ball down the field, boys!"
