They have a new quarterback and a new middle linebacker. They’ve released veterans, traded away one of the top cornerbacks in the league, signed wisely in free agency and loaded up on draft picks.
Sounds like a losing franchise trying to turn things around.
Try the two-time and defending AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The suspect stole autographed photos of Chiefs players Tyreek Hill, Charcandrick West, Albert Wilson, and Harrison Butker. Those signed photos should have certificates of authenticity and a MO Sports hologram on them, Halter said.
Out of all the centers drafted that year, none have succeed. Mitch Morse and Ali Marpet moved to center from being drafted as a guard (Marpet is back to guard since the Bucs signed Ryan Jensen). Otherwise, there are no offensive lineman drafted as a guard who are studs.
Gabriel is a special talent who mirrors Kansas City Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill. The Bears’ new head coach Matt Nagy is very familiar with working with someone of his caliber.
If you're hoping the Bears try to turn Burton into the next Ertz, or the next Travis Kelce, you're in luck. The offense he now finds himself in is the same one Ertz and Kelce are in – and Burton says he already knows "95 percent" of it.

Around the league
In an interview with The Post, Troy Vincent, the N.F.L.’s executive vice president of football operations, confirmed that the competition committee would recommend a slate of changes that include eliminating the “going to the ground” rule as well as the rule stating that slight movement of the ball in a receiver’s hands negates a catch.
“Everybody has their own approach,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. “We just try and take good players all the way through, like right now we’re sitting here without a [second or third round pick], which is a fun challenge for us. So alright, how do we figure out how to compensate for those openings?”
How could this happen?
Answer: the deal between Disney and the NFL only prohibits the league from selling the rights to other cable networks (i.e Turner), not broadcast networks. So Fox was able to buy the rights to broadcast the draft on free television.
An image posted to Martin's verified Instagram account on Feb. 22 showed a shotgun with ammo and the message: "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge." The image included references to the Dolphins, and Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito -- his former Miami teammates who were part of a 2014 NFL investigation that determined Martin was victimized by a "pattern of harassment" directed toward him.
Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns also had dinner with Darnold Tuesday night on the eve of his showcase, and plan to do the same with Wyoming signal-caller Josh Allen later this week. Allen's Pro Day is slated for Friday.
"With this deal, I get $5 million guaranteed, which is half my other contract. I get the ability to make more than I could've done whether I played at an All-Pro level or not in Seattle. And that's really all that I wanted. If I play at the level I'm capable of, I feel security in the upcoming years and I feel comfortable with that. And I'm great with that."
The moment many fans have been waiting for and wondering about is here: Free agent defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is headed to Oakland for a visit. This according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Oakland Raiders are trading fullback Jamize Olawale and a sixth-round pick to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a fifth-rounder, the Cowboys announced Tuesday.
In case you missed it at Arrowhead Pride
Williams, 26, originally signed with the Cardinals in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Iowa. Before Northern Iowa, Williams played high school ball locally at Grandview High School.
My way-too-early prediction is the Chiefs keep four running backs—Kareem Hunt, Ware, West, Akeem Hunt—in that order, along with fullback Anthony Sherman.
The Chiefs fielded their worst defense in years last season. While from a points-allowed-per-game standpoint they were average (15th in the league), literally everyone who watched the Chiefs could see some serious issues on the field.
As the Kansas City Chiefs continue their offseason in soft-rebuild-but-also-win-now-but-wait-focus-on-2019 mode, the Oakland Raiders are, well, back to...Raidering.
