NFL stays silent on Tyreek Hill | NBC Sports Pro Football Talk

Multiple reports (including one posted here) indicated that the league was likely to place Hill on the Commissioner Exempt list last week. The league didn’t do it. Instead, the league did nothing about Hill. Even now, 10 days after the disturbing audio of Hill telling a woman he once choked and beat while pregnant that “you need to be terrified of me too, b—” surfaced, the NFL has taken no action and issued no comment about Hill’s situation.

Chiefs Rookie Minicamp: Five Observations From Day 2 |

The Kansas City Chiefs were back on the field Sunday afternoon for their second day of rookie minicamp.

When Frank Clark Nearly Sacked Patrick Mahomes... | Forbes

Now Clark doesn’t have to worry about stopping the Chiefs’ potent offense or sacking Mahomes, but if he did, he has a tip.

“When you rush him, make sure you stay on the upfield shoulder because he’s got a mean spin move,” Clark said. “He’s special.”

Chiefs rookie DB Juan Thornhill gets after the ball in first minicamp practice | Kansas City Star

With the minutes of the final team drill winding down, Juan Thornhill made the kind of play the Chiefs searched for from their secondary last season. Thornhill picked off former Wagner quarterback TJ Linta and ran the ball back some 30 yards to the end zone at the Chiefs’ practice facility Saturday afternoon.

The play, of course, has to be taken with a grain of salt. None of the 72 players participating in the Chiefs’ rookie minicamp were wearing pads, and the competition wasn’t nearly as stout as it will be once the NFL regular season starts.

But even so, the flash of athleticism and playmaking ability out of Thornhill, a second-round draft pick, bodes well for the Chiefs as they remake the defense to Steve Spagnuolo’s specifications.

Cowboys have no timetable for Ezekiel Elliott extension, still expect deal to get done | Yahoo! Sports

After the three years he’s had in the NFL, Elliott has more than earned it. Don’t expect that deal to get done anytime soon, however.

“Well, I think those [deals] are all a work in progress,” Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said on Pro Football Talk on Friday. “Certainly we’ve got a couple years there with Zeke to get that done.
