“We want to help make the transition to the new policy as smooth as possible,” Chiefs president Mark Donovan said, via the Kansas City Star. “We hope that giving these approved plastic bags to our season-ticket holders will help with the adjustment and provide clear guidelines.”

We continue our Chiefs Rookie Recap series, featuring my conversations with each of the team’s eight 2013 draft choices, in order, addressing a summary of their OTA and minicamp experiences, expectations for this season and more.
The Kansas City Chiefs selected Cincinnati Bearcats tight end Travis Kelce with their first of two third-round picks (63rd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft in April. The versatile TE possesses size and speed to stretch the field, showcased by his 83-yard TD for the Bearcats against Duke in 2012.
