Tight end Kevin Boss was on the Raiders last year and signed with the Chiefs to give them more depth at tight end with Tony Moeaki. In an interview with KCSP in Kansas City, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, Boss claimed to know only one thing about the rivalry between the former AFL franchises.“I was in Oakland for such a short period of time that it wasn’t really something where I really understood the whole Chiefs-Raiders rivalry,” Boss said. “I just know now that I’m on the better side of the rivalry. … It’s been a great transition and it’s really been a blessing in disguise to have been moved on to greener pastures.”
Somewhere underneath the black spandex that covered Charles’ legs during the first day of his two-day football camp for children Friday at Memorial is a scar on his left leg from the 2011 surgery to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament.After months of rehabilitation, the Port Arthur native said he expects to be cleared to play again when he returns to Kansas City next week, putting him on track to play in the 2012 opener at home against the Atlanta Falcons.
So…let me get this straight. Dude knew nothing of the Raiders-Chiefs rivalry before becoming a Raider? Never mind that this cat grew up playing football on the West Coast. You’d assume at some point he would have seen or a Raiders-Chiefs game in his lifetime. Never mind that he hasn’t even played a game as a Chief yet. Somehow he already knows he’s on the “better side”.For the record, Boss is likely going to be a blocking tight end in KC and nothing more. The Raiders gave him a chance to feature prominently in an offense that typically utilized the tight end position in a multitude of ways. He had his health issues but overall didn’t contribute much more than throwing a few big blocks and coming up with a couple of nice moments on special teams.
Banks’ agent, Bruce Tollner confirmed Sunday that after flying to Kansas City for a workout with the Chiefs, Banks will return to the Pacific Northwest and take part in the Seahawks’ minicamp. The minicamp starts Tuesday, but Banks’ first day will be Wednesday.Banks had a private workout at the Seahawks practice facility last Thursday. Following the workout, Carroll said he wanted to bring Banks’ back for the minicamp and see him on the field.
For home games, the Chiefs are hiring flag runners to hoist the team colors and sprint end zone-to-end zone after every score. You’ll get to watch games from field level at Arrowhead Stadium—and get paid for it—as you wave the Chiefs flag when the Chiefs put points on the scoreboard. You’ll also get the unique opportunity to interact with fans, cheerleaders, and of course, KC Wolf.We’re looking for male candidates ages 18 and older and out of high school to be the next Flag Warriors. Applicants have to be able to handle running the length of the field after every Chiefs score in every weather condition. They’ll also be expected to carry a 12’X6’ flag during the sprint and wave it during commercial breaks. Rain or shine, we’re relying on our Flag Warriors to keep the noise at Arrowhead Stadium going.
