Arrowheadlines: Chiefs among the best skill players in the AFC West

Chiefs owner Clark Hunt's actions show ruthlessness, business first | The Kansas City Star

He is short, usually quiet, and always tailored and austere in style. That’s part of why it’s easy, sometimes, to take him as passive. Indecisive. He keeps his permanent home in Dallas, a fact many have taken to label him as an absentee owner. And to be fair, there was a time he was less in touch.

But people who have worked for, with and around Hunt have described him consistently and similarly over the years. He listens more than he talks, doesn’t waste words, and when it’s his turn it’s usually worth listening to.

"It will probably be about a month or so because those guys are in the playoffs -- I got my [offseason] early -- but Vic [Beasley]'s my guy and we'll link up," Miller said in January, via ESPN’s Vaughn McClure. "I'll get with Vic and [the Kansas City Chiefs'] Justin Houston and all those guys and have a little pass-rush summit. Vic, being a guy with that type of game so similar to yours, you want to get with those guys and work out with those guys. I'm looking forward to it."

Pre-Camp Reads: Chris Jones Preparing for Encore Performance | Chiefs.com

At 6 feet 5 and 310 pounds with an affinity for getting after opposing quarterbacks, Jones quickly established himself as a fan favorite, not only for what he was able to do on the field, but also for an infectious personality and playful demeanor not normally befitting a man of his size.

The combination of those two things quickly made Jones one of the most popular players on the Chiefs’ defense.

Will Chiefs suffer front office losses when John Dorsey gets a job? | Arrowhead Addict

Terry will likely spend this season with the Chiefs and maybe he’ll like his new environs enough to stay for the long haul. But it’s also likely that John Dorsey will be more than happy to raid K.C.’s coffers when it’s time to build a new staff—a matter of when, not if. The team that wins Dorsey’s services is likely to also enjoy an influx of former Chiefs executives who will be glad to work for a boss who makes everyone look good.
