Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.
Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.
Welcome to The Morning Fix.
New wideout A.J. Jenkins is a player that many here at Arrowhead Addict will be watching intently for the rest of the preseason and into the season. How will he respond to playing with a new team? Will he be able to step up and live up to his potential?
Those questions remain answered, but Chiefs general manager John Dorsey saw a lot in Jenkins while watching tape on him before the trade, according to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports:
“I saw quickness,” Dorsey said of Jenkins in an interview with USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. “I saw the ability to drop his weight, get in and out of his routes very quickly. I saw hands, and I saw some run after the catch skill with him.”
“You’d love to win all of these preseason games,” Smith said. “But in the end, I think the development and the execution on the field are the most important things. Yeah, we want to win every game, but in the end, no one is remembering the scores of these games.”
Thankfully, evaluation and getting better is all that matters in the preseason. Kansas City is 0-2 in preseason action right now as the Chiefs head to Pittsburgh.
