What do you notice about this tweet from Kansas City Chiefs minicamp?

Do you see it? Can you spot what’s going on here? Who’s not listed here? Let me help you out ...

DERRICK JOHNSON IS PRACTICING!

Woohoo! It’s just individual drills and there’s no tackling or contact but whatever. It’s the first time this offseason he’s participated in drills. Both DJ and the Chiefs have consistently said he expects to be ready for training camp. That’s only six (or so) weeks away so with each passing day I’m feeling better about him making an impact this year.

I’m a little hesitant to get sucked in here completely with all this optimism. The reality is that DJ is 34 years old and coming off his second Achilles in three years. History says he won’t be the same player. I’d love to be wrong!

Here’s a quick clip of DJ, he is the one in the dark sweatpants.
