OFFENSIVE LINE (8): Eric Fisher, Zach Fulton, Mitch Morse, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Mitchell Schwartz, Jah Reid, Bryan Witzmann, Andrew Tiller

This doesn’t account for guard Parker Ehinger, who the Chiefs don’t believe will be ready for full participation when training camp begins after having surgery for a torn ACL last year. But if he’s ready when the season begins, he’ll make the roster.

What We Learned from Media Availability on Tuesday |

Q: With all the changes on offense, is it reasonable to expect that this offense can pick up where it left off?

SMITH: “It’s really rare that you have all 11 guys coming back. Generally you’ve got guys that aren’t here anymore. Yeah it’s going to be an adjustment, but I feel that every year that adjustment is somewhere. You got a lot of continuity, you’ve got a lot of room to grow. Got a lot of continuity in the tight ends and running backs groups with those guys coming back. I think that adjustment is going to come every year whenever guys don’t come back, you’ll have that.”

Chiefs’ Eric Fisher film review: My left tackle | Arrowhead Pride

No, the reason I worried was that over the course of last season, during my live viewing of games, I felt like I was noticing Eric Fisher too much. And I don’t mean that as a compliment. Generally speaking, you don’t want to notice offensive linemen much at all during a broadcast. As I reviewed LDT’s and Parker Ehinger’s film, I still had the nagging feeling that I was seeing a bit too much of Fisher. And so I was concerned that once I started reviewing Fisher’s film I’d find that he had finally stopped improving after getting better every season, or maybe even backslid.

Terrell Owens once talked to Andy Reid about coming back to play for the Kansas City Chiefs | Arrowhead Pride

“A couple years ago, I reached out to my former coach Andy Reid with the Chiefs and being that he wasn’t - that was the year that he had relinquished some of his title of being GM and he was primarily the head coach.

“John Dorsey was the guy. I reached out to him and he asked me why did I want to play and I was like, ‘Because I really feel I have the ability to play at a high level’. Considering how the receivers fared out the last couple of years there’s no doubt that I could have played.
