Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag. 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 today.
Welcome to The Fix.
The Kansas City Cheifs 2013 campaign is firmly in the record books. As the post-season marches on without the Chiefs in tow, the team is now focused on next season, along with the other 27 teams who aren’t playing in games this coming Sunday.
Over at the Mothership, Reid Ferrin takes one last look at the Chiefs final three games (including the Wild Card).
The Chiefs couldn’t have asked for a better start, using just four plays to cover 59 yards, ending with a 31-yard TD run by Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles. For the game, Jamaal rushed 13 times for 106 yards (8.2 avg.), marking the fourth time in 2013 that he ran for 100 or more yards. Jamaal’s cracked the century mark 21 times in his career, ranking him third in team history for most 100-yard rushing games in a career. He finished with 12 rushing touchdowns and seven receiving touchdowns in 2013. His 19-combined touchdowns tie for the fourth-best single-season touchdown mark in franchise history.
As we switch gears from “what was” to “what will be” we head over to the ESPN blog of Adam Teicher. Adam discusses the intriguing signing of running back Joe McKnight to a reserve/future contract.
McKnight played three seasons for the New York Jets from 2010 through 2012 before being released prior to the start of this past season. McKnight was nothing more than a spot player for the Jets on offense but also did a solid job returning kickoffs and punts.
The Chiefs may want to look at McKnight in the slot receiver/kick returner role occupied by Dexter McCluster, who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent.
Finally, at the Kansas City Star, Terez Paylor begins an offseason series taking a look at several draft prospects that could fit well with the Chiefs. His first target: FSU wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.
Benjamin, a redshirt sophomore receiver who caught the game-winning score in the Seminoles’ 34-31 [victory] against the [Auburn] Tigers, used his 6-foot-5, 234-pound frame and freakish athletic ability to terrorize defensive backs in his first year as a starter, catching 54 passes for 1,011 yards and 15 touchdowns.
That’s the Chiefs’ news and headlines wrap-up for today, Addcts. Enjoy your Monday and GO CHIEFS!
