Chiefs OTAs kick off without Justin Houston, Eric Berry, Marcus Peters

The Kansas City Chiefs were missing a trio of stars on the first day of OTAs. According to the Star’s Terez Paylor, Justin Houston, Eric Berry and Marcus Peters were absent Tuesday.

Usually OTA absences are related to contracts but Berry and Houston were just paid and Peters isn’t eligible for a new deal until after the 2017 season. OTAs are voluntary ... if you’re a good enough player. Would someone competing for a roster spot miss practice even if it’s voluntary? Probably not. The three listed here are in no danger so they can tend to whatever they’re doing instead. Sure, I would rather them be there but I don’t have any doubt all three of them will be ready so I’m not sweating this until we have a reason to.

The Chiefs do have a mandatory minicamp in June. Andy Reid will speak to reporters on Thursday.
