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.
–It’s been a busy few days in Kansas City’s front office. Head coach Andy Reid, general manager John Dorsey and the rest of their staff had to cut players, sign others, and put together a practice squad. Throw in a trade and all the emotions that surrounds releasing players, and you’ve got yourselves a pretty crazy time.
Coach Reid discussed the situation, per Reid Ferrin of KcChiefs.com:
“Tough time of the year,” coach Reid said. “Obviously, when you have to bring guys in and let them go. Again, we’re hoping they all have a chance to hook on somewhere else; we’re hoping the ones we’ve invited back for practice squad will clear waivers and be able to get back. We’re still early in this and we’ll see how everything works. We didn’t have, obviously, the practice squad players out here; we had the guys that made the cuts and were able to get in a practice.”
“First and foremost, this time of the year is always hard,” Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster said. “We build friendships with those teammates that we’re used to seeing every day, going to battle with, but those guys (Andy Reid/John Dorsey) have shown and proven that they know what they’re doing and we trust in that and go out there and play with the guys we have.”
