Chiefs' Avery, Moeaki & Draughn Already At Camp

Yesterday the Kansas City Chiefs rookies and QBs reported for training camp, but head coach Andy Reid also mentioned that a few select veterans were also in the house.

“Players are coming back in, as you’ve seen,” said Reid. “So we’ll meet tonight and we’ll get them out there tomorrow on the field and have a short practice and then a walk through in the afternoon and meetings in between. So there will be meetings tonight and meetings throughout tomorrow. And we’ll do that for three days. We’ve got selected vets in. So that means the quarterbacks are here and then injured players that were either injured in our last year or were not able to participate in our offseason program.”

Three of the vets that are already at camp are WR Donnie Avery, TE Tony Moeaki and RB Shaun Draughn. All three were banged up during OTA practices earlier this summer.

But now, according to Reid, all three are cleared to practice.

That is good news for the Chiefs because all three players should be important to the offense this season. Avery figures to challenge to be the Chiefs’ primary deep threat. He might even end up being the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Dwayne Bowe.

Moeaki has loads of talent and if he can stay healthy and build off of some of the momentum he gained at the end of the 2012 season, he could be a big asset in both the passing and blocking games.

As for Druaghn, he will be fighting it out with Cyrus Gray and Knile Davis to be the primary backup to Jamaal Charles.

What do you think, Addicts? How big of an impact will these three players have on the offense this season?

    All three should have some playing time.Avery for sher.I would like to see Moeaki stay heath for a fuul season and Shaun has an up hill clime.I hope Shaun can push Davis.

    If Moeaki can stay healthy, (he has played 2 full seasons out of 3), then this could be a break out year for him. Smith throws a lot to tight ends and Moeaki has the talent.

      Alex likes to pull the MLBs down and then work the 10-15 yard downfield over their heads to the TE. Jamaal Charles is going to be a nightmare gameplanning job for DCs… and Alex will *uck them up at the line

      • Calchiefsfan

        Can’t wait!

  • kcpauly

    I think they all should be able to get some playing time and help the team out, TOMO, will be the starting TE, he is just too talented to not be on the field when healthy….Go Chiefs!!!!!!!

    • scomstock55

      it wont be long before Kelce becomes a starter…he will replace one of them…and it wont be later than game 4…

      Take a deep breath and step back from your computer. Might re-read what you posted. Moeaki may be many things, a fine young man or whatever, but a “GOOD” player is not one of them. Could be with a little tough luv, he can play thru some of his assorted booboos.

      • KCMikeG

        In case you forgot Moeaki broke Tony G’s rookie season records with Cassel at QB. He will be healthy and he will be our best TE although I think Kelce will push him for receptions. Fasono is likely to be the goal line TD “vulture” of the TE group.

      Wow, 2 all caps posts in a row. I thought it went without saying you cant start playing until the 1st preseason game. All we can do at this point is flap gums and be optimistic, or realistic and dream of the quickly approaching season. I agree that the division is within reach, but it would take a fast bonding and effective offense paired with a bullet proof defense when we play the donkeys 2 times

  • KEM

    Tony Mo gets injured again and has to sit for awhile then he and the chiefs need to part ways – maybe he can be a rapper called Sir Sits Alot. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but Brittle Brody Croyle was a nice guy as well who kept benches warm for the players!

    • Drewfish

      That wounded knee thing was pretty racist against American Indians….especially since there was a huge massacre of Indians at wounded knee and they don’t take that stuff lightly.

      • KEM

        Apologies – did not mean to offend anyone!

      • tm1946

        Gggggg, funny. Maybe there can be a waiver from the PC police and some team can pay him to not show up.



    • 50yearfan

      Damn right, 10-4! That’s my prediction for the Chiefs record going into week 16.
