Arrowheadlines: LeSean McCoy campaigns for Chiefs front office man to be their GM

LeSean McCoy campaigning for Buffalo Bills to hire Brett Veach as GM | Buffalo Rumblings

Turns out, Veach was in Philadelphia with Shady from 2009 to 2013. He worked as an assistant to Andy Reid. When Reid was hired by the Chiefs in 2013, he brought Veach with him.

We’ll see if anything comes of McCoy’s one-tweet social media campaign, but Veach has been rumored to be a candidate for the Bills GM job, as he also has ties to Buffalo’s head coach Sean McDermott. The two were together with the Eagles from 2004 to 2010.

There is a downside to all of this, though, and it’s most often noted with throwaway lines like “has to make better decisions,” or “footwork needs improvement.” But I haven’t seen much done beyond that about him, so I thought it might be worthwhile to show some of what Mahomes needs to refine.

But general manager John Dorsey said he thinks Smith's backup is on the roster now.

“I do," Dorsey said. “It will be a good, competitive battle for that position. You’ve just got to let that work itself out. We’ve got to see how training camp unfolds."

Bausby was impressive in rookie camp that year, but he suffered a broke clavicle during organized team activities and was released. He signed with the Bears’ practice squad in Dec. 2015 and was promoted to the active roster in mid-October of last year, which led to his first NFL action.

“Oh man, I know they’re sick back home,” Ray said. “I can’t tell you how many calls I got. ‘No, Man! Not Jamaal Charles!’ But for us, it’s a great addition. Second to Priest Holmes, Jamaal Charles is one of the greatest running backs in Chiefs history. To acquire him and his play-making abilities adds a completely different dynamic to our offense.”

Broncos vs. Chiefs. The two franchises have met 114 times since 1960. But Denver hates the Raiders. The rivalry with the Chiefs is so chill I sometimes wonder if it’s dead, or merely went up in the happy smoke of brisket on the grill or weed in a joint.

“From the very beginning, back when we evaluated him in September/October, the reigning consensus was he’s got unbelievable talent,” John Dorsey, general manager for Kansas City Chiefs, said on the Kansas City Chiefs website. “He’s got the skill set to be one of those truly great players, and I think sometimes when you make an aggressive move like that, that’s why you do it. Because these players, they don’t come by too often, so you have to take a shot at it, and that’s kind of what we did.”

The Chiefs have reason to care about where he ends up. They guaranteed $2.5 million of Howard’s $3.7 million salary for 2017 on the third day of the league year, but his contract states that if he signs with another team in 2017, they’ll be off the hook for the amount for which he signs.

“A year ago, it seemed like the logical thing to do since we carry all of the AFC games,” says KMOV general manager Mark Murphy. “With the Rams leaving the market, we had decided that it made sense to approach that. In addition, our sister station is the flagship station, KCTV, in Kansas City, so we made contact with the Chiefs and it was a pretty easy decision to make. Looking back, we’re glad that we did. We’re very happy with the performance of the Chiefs last year. It was a very successful season, and we’re hoping for the best this year.”
