Taking Training Camp Requests


Tomorrow I will be making my third annual road trip to St. Joseph for Chiefs training camp. If you’ve never been, I recommend it. However, as every year passes and the wonders of social media continue to grow it is now easier to get information than ever before. If you read AA everyday you’re already getting the latest important news out of camp. If you follow enough KC sports media people on Twitter you can almost get a play by play of what’s going on at each training camp practice.

Monday I’ll be posting my thoughts from attending training camp on Sunday. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve heard rumors that Sunday is the first day the Chiefs can be in full pads and I’m hoping I’ll get to see some hitting.

Here’s where you come in.

Since AA will already have any major news (should there be any) from Sunday morning’s practice covered well before I post my thoughts on Monday I thought I’d take this opportunity to take some requests on specific players that those of you that can’t make it to camp would like to hear about. I was thinking of non-big name players. There’s going to be a million reports on how Alex Smith is looking throughout camp (although I’m definitely going to watch him for a little while) and at this point we know what to expect from Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, etc. I’m wondering which players that aren’t always getting the media attention that you’d like me to report on.

So if you have a specific player that you’re itching to know about just let me know in the comments section and tonight I’ll make up a little checklist to take to camp with me. If you’re planning on being at camp tomorrow then perhaps I’ll see you there!

    D.Poe and J.Baldwin, both 1st rd picks that need to step it up this yr. Rookies Kniles Davis and Kelce. Also is Avery and Fasano going to do anything?

    • jim

      I second that especially Travis Kelce, GEAUX CHIEFS !!!!!!!!!!!!

    as the family spokesperson, really want to hear about my nephew Rico Richardson #83. his grandmother (my mom) is in the hospital and our family is preparing for our annual family reunion Aug 2-4. we’re going to miss him here this year and hate that we can’t be there to support him during this big moment in his life. we enjoyed the time he was home but can’t wait to see him play. we’re all gearing up for the first preseason game in new orleans right after our reunion (great way to wrap up our summer).

  • Danny W

    I wanna know how my boy Johnny Baldwin is doing. Please and Thanks.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Yep.

  • 2dogs

    I’d be interested to hear if Nico Johnson looks worthy of the 4th round pick.

  • Steven davidson

    Like to hear more on how Eric Kush is coming along. Last reports I heard were not that good. Hoping he was going to turn out to be a steal.

  • slapnuts

    Can you give me a Neiko Thorpe update…son is an Auburn fanatic! Thanks

  • Gjrchief

    Austen Lane… I think he could be solid depth behind Tamba and Justin, and we currently have none. On a side note during the off season he frequented the grocery store that I manage in Bradenton Florida. IMG academy is nearby so we get a large amount of athletes(many of the top draft picks get ready for the combine there). Most pull the… I’m just shopping no autographs please. Contrary to that Austen seems to be one of the most grounded and down to earth athletes I have ever met. He seems to genuinely appreciate what an opportunity he has. If you haven’t read the column he wrote for Peter Kings Monday Morning QB its worth it and you will see what I’m talking about as far as humble and down to earth. If you get the chance to meet him, you can’t help but root for him.

      I read that article, and you’re right, he seems like a down to earth guy. His intelligence was refreshing, i just hope it translates on the field. While adding quality locker room guys is something JD and AR should be interested in, they are looking for talent. You can be nice during the holidays….but we want an animal on the field!!!! Good luck Austen

  • Jamie Denton

    Don’t hear much on Dunta Robinson, and now with the injury to Allen what about Jeff Swartz (SP). And our middle man Dontari Poe?

  • FaAmos

    No. 2 Wide Reciever? There should be a training camp watch throughout training camp and the preseason updating the nation on first if KC has anyone looking like a No. 2 receiver and if so, who?

  • FaAmos

    Chiefs haven’t had a No. 2 WR in some time so now with Smith at the helm will that be any different or the same old story with Bowe and his dropped balls with no one else to rely upon. Its getting pretty safe to claim Baldwin is a bust, thanks Pioli!

  • Lyle Graversen

    Okay, since I’m getting up at the crack of dawn in the morning I’m closing the list down. Here are the top guys that I’m going to watch for (in no particular order)

    Baldwin/Avery/#2 WR situation
    Poe (and probably Powe too)
    Richardson
    Nico
    Lane
    Thorpe
    Kush
    Schwartz
    Davis
    All the TEs (Fasano, Kelce, Moeaki, and the UFA Harris)

    Thanks for the input and if anybody is at camp Sunday I’ll be the slightly round guy with dark rimmed glasses, sideburns, and an Arrowhead Addict t-shirt.

  • FaAmos

    I’d love to hear about the No. 2 reciever behind D Bowe
