Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
The former sixth-round pick began his tenure with the Chiefs as a practice squad pluck from Philadelphia in 2008 and spent the majority of his rookie season on the inactive list. He’d eventually work his way into a special teams role in 2009 and sprinkle two spot-starts into the mix before settling in as a situational contributor last season.
A sparkplug from the sideline, Studebaker was awarded with a contract extension in September.
If Taylor, 6-foot-3, 334 pounds, ends up in Denver, it will likely require a trade down by the Broncos, who hold the No. 2 overall pick, or a trade up into the first round from their No. 36 pick in the second round. Denver has been working out players throughout the draft board to set up many scenarios.
Kansas City has the No. 21 pick. Taylor could be a good fit there. The Chiefs are looking for a couple of stout defensive tackles this offseason. They tried to sign Shaun Rogers before signed with New Orleans shortly before the lockout.
LJ wants change of venue
Former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson, who is being sued by a Lawrence woman over a 2008 incident in which he allegedly spit a drink on her at a Kansas City bar, has asked for a change of venue.
His lawyer, Jack T. Bangert, suggested Lafayette County to a judge Wednesday but said any place would be better than KC.
“We want to go anywhere but here,” Bangert said.
