The couple happened to leave around the same time Berry did with several to-go orders. Being a Tennessee fan, Todd Mills did not want to bother the five-time Pro Bowler, but he was interested in seeing what car Berry was driving. That is when they witnessed the event.

After handing the boxes of food out, Berry dropped to a knee and prayed with the three individuals.

Last year, the NFL formed a “special ticketing committee” made up of executives from the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers, New York Jets, and Kansas City Chiefs.

After busy offseason, KC Chiefs’ Allen Bailey is the lone “amigo” standing | The Kansas City Star

Their lockers were side-by-side and the three defensive linemen were so close off the field that they coined themselves the “3 Amigos” and printed up shirts with the moniker. When healthy, they comprised one of the NFL’s better interior groups. Their bond off the field, they thought, only made them stronger on it.

They knew, however, that nothing lasts forever. But while Poe’s offseason departure for Atlanta in free agency was only a mild surprise, the team’s sudden release of Howard — who still had a year left on his contract — was harder to predict, despite the fact he, like Bailey, finished last season on injured reserve.

Jamaal Charles did not want to tell his story at first, but he said Kansas City Chiefs public relations chief Ted Crews eventually convinced him otherwise.

“[Author Sean Jensen] had been knowing Ted for a long time,” Charles said. “Ted had been bothering me about it for two years in a row. I’m like, ‘Man, I don’t want to do it.’ I didn’t want to do it. And I just finally was like, ‘Man, I’ll open up and talk about it.’”

“Coming to an organization that’s had such success recently, it’s a great feeling,” O’Shaughnessy said. “To tell you the truth, the only thing that really mattered is that I had another opportunity. Whether it was here or anywhere else, I was just happy to have more opportunities in the NFL. But obviously, you get an opportunity on a team like this, is that much more exciting. This organization is a great one, I’m just excited to be a part of it.”

“Just talking trash,” Nelson said with a smile. “That’s just me, man. My competitive spirit.”

Throughout OTAs, Nelson has made more plays on the ball, a function of his ongoing effort to trust his instincts more. Nelson, a third-round pick from Oregon State in 2015, was a full-time starter for the first time last season but didn’t record any interceptions.

“I remember it was Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and I got to read to the little ones and that was just an awesome experience. I remember when I was a young knucklehead and having that access to an after-school program in my community. It’s something that hits home to me and something I wanted to always be a part of.”

Thus the formation of Walk the Walk, a fusion of fashion and philanthropy, Kelce’s two loves outside football.

Crennel’s previous deal was set to expire in January, and the Washington Redskins had interest in speaking to him about their vacant defensive coordinator position. Crennel’s promotion also allowed Houston to promote Mike Vrabel from linebackers coach to defensive coordinator. Vrabel said he felt ready for the position because of the way Crennel managed the defense in the past.
