According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the two sides continue to talk, but there has yet to even be a contract offer put on the table. That’s obviously not a good sign for those hoping to see Albert strike a long-term deal.
With so much work to be done before Monday’s deadline, it seems unlikely that Albert and the Chiefs can reach an agreement.
Regardless what happens on the contract negotiation front, Branden Albert will be a member of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013, but whether or not he sticks with the team one year from now has yet to be seen.
By Thanksgiving of this year Derrick Johnson will be 31 and Tamba Hali will be 30.
When Hali was drafted the George W. Bush was in the middle of his second term and Barrack Obama hadn’t been elected as U.S. Senator yet. Johnson was almost done with his first preseason as a profession at the time Hurricane Katrina hit.
Hali and Johnson have combined to play 15 seasons with the Chiefs and made four Pro-Bowls (two for each). Hali played on the opposite end of Jared Allen who hasn’t been a Chiefs in over five years.
Age is quickly becoming a concern for the two best talents of the Chiefs front seven. Or to put it a better way: Johnson, Hali and five other guys.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Tysyn Hartman taught kids the fundamentals of football Saturday afternoon.
Hartman served as a counselor at fellow Kansas State Wildcat Arthur Brown and his brother Bryce Brown’s camp in Wichita, Kan.
While at the camp, Hartman says he’s getting ready for Chiefs training camp later this month.
“I’m feeling pretty good. I just need to keep getting better. I need grind everyday to improve my game and compete against the other guys,” Hartman said.
Thanks to his legendary father, Lamar Hunt, Clark, his three siblings and their mother own the Kansas City Chiefs, a chunk of the Chicago Bulls, two Major League Soccer franchises — FC Dallas and the Columbus Crew — and various stadium lease agreements.
Clark was a two-time academic All-American for SMU’s nationally ranked soccer team.
After graduating with a degree in finance in 1987, he worked as an investment banker for Goldman-Sachs in New York and Los Angeles. He came back to Dallas two years later and started working with his dad on a variety of businesses.
Seven years ago, his father chose him to be the steward, not the commander, of Hunt Sports Group LLC.
It’s a trust the 48-year-old holds sacred.
“I go to work thinking about preserving and growing my father’s passion and legacy,” says Clark, who is also chairman and CEO of the Kansas City Chiefs and of FC Dallas.
In 2009 and 2010, the man who led our PFF Run Rating was Jamaal Charles. After getting drafted by the Chiefs in 2008, Charles began to break out at the end of his sophomore season with 656 yards in his last four games. His 2010 season was one to remember after he averaged 6.5 rushing yards per attempt over the course of the entire season which led to a playoff appearance.
An injury held him to just 34 snaps in 2011, and in 2012 he had a mix of excellent 200-plus yard performances mixed with five games of 40 rushing yards or less. Over the five years, his 5.8 yards per carry is by far the highest for all backs. His season and a half of dominance is enough to make him the second-best runner over the last five years, and a strong finish to 2012 gives reason to believe he has a chance to return to that form.
According to the Twitter feed for Fox’s Mike Garafolo, the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams and Washington Redskins were among the clubs represented.
The 6-foot-8, 344-pound Bamiro did not participate in any timed events but did impress with his athleticism and balance during positional drills. Scouts were also excited by Bamiro’s incredibly long arms. Measuring in at 36 1/8,” Bamiro would have ranked third among all players tested at the 2013 combine, behind D.J. Fluker (36 3/4″), Malliciah Goodman (36 3/8″) and Rogers Gaines (36 1/4″).
