Miller is a short, squat interior run stopper who, at his best, gets off the snap quickly, gives solid effort and often lines up as a tilted nose against the center. He posted a career-high in sacks (four) and tackles for loss (six) as recently as 2015, and will add some depth to a group that includes projected starters Allen Bailey and Bennie Logan and Jones.
Miller tore his Achilles tendon last season and missed the final 10 games of the year as a result. He was a starter for all four of his seasons in Jacksonville and made his mark as a run defender, although he did have four sacks during the 2015 season.
“When I was hurt, I spent that time watching the Chiefs,” Bausby said. “Marcus, Eric, all those guys. I saw what they did and how they were doing it, their technique, how they moved and and how they played routes.”
Kliff Kingsbury details why the spread offense will help Mahomes' career, how he recruits players to Lubbock, and which fellow college head coach he lived with in Texas.
Yesterday, the Kansas City Star reported that Murray had been hired to work as an announcer for CBS, calling college football games.
Murray has served as a backup quarterback on the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. He has never attempted a pass in his NFL career.
Hunt has been one of the Chiefs’ receiving stars in camp, showing an ability to get open down the field. He made two of camp’s most spectacular catches, making an over-the-shoulder grab of a deep fade pass and a one-handed catch, also deep down the sideline.
The A-Team is back with its first dispatch from training camp, as Sam Mellinger, Terez Paylor, Blair Kerkhoff and David Eulitt of The Kansas City Star check in to dissect the Chiefs' first eight practices. They talk about Pat Mahomes' development, the possible reasons for John Dorsey's firing as GM and give additional camp observations, while also playing a rapid-fire edition of "Who He Play For."
For the season, Sorensen played about 48 percent of the Chiefs’ defensive snaps, and he continued his workload on special teams, where his 367 snaps during the regular season matched Eric Murray for the team lead.
After his step-up year, Sorensen was rewarded with a four-year, $16 million extension that includes almost $8 million guaranteed and about $2 million in incentives. The total deal is worth about $18.4 million.
“At this point I'm taking the majority of those snaps that (Maclin) left in different spots,” Conley said. “Tyreek is taking a lot of them, too.”
CB Ashton Lampkin, an undrafted free agent from Oklahoma State, received snaps with the first-team defense as the Chiefs search for a backup for slot nickel back Steven Nelson
“I was with Kansas City” as a prospective fullback, Pitre said, during training camp in 2008 before missing the cut and eventually retiring before his NFL career got off the ground from the effects of a lingering, devastating knee injury. He called the experience of returning to the Chiefs and working with his former UCLA running backs coach Eric Bienemy, who was also the coach when he was a graduate assistant at Colorado, “a little surreal.”
Pitre spent a week as part of the NFL’s Minority Coach Intern program, which brings primarily college coaches into training camps to work and learn.
According to investigators, a man in a Kansas City Chiefs jersey approached another man who was sitting on the steps of the Villa at Willow Creek apartment complex on June 22. The suspect pointed a handgun at the man and robbed him of his phone, a Samsung 7 Edge, bank card, and various identification cards.
