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.

There is a new face in town and it belongs to wide receiver Weston Dressler who comes to the Chiefs from the CFL. He’s played there for the last six years and will be missed according to the Kansas City Star’s Terez Paylor.

Saskatchewan assistant general manager Jeremy O’Day said Dressler, 28, who caught 442 passes for 6,531 yards and 43 touchdowns during his six-year career with the Roughriders and worked out for the Chiefs in early January, will be missed.

“He just felt the opportunity was a good fit for him and he didn’t want to explore anywhere else,” O’Day said. “He felt (his new team) was being very upfront with him. Weston just wants a fair opportunity to make a chance for a roster.”

Most of the buzz in Chiefs Kingdom this morning involves the signing of Dressler and Adam Teicher at ESPN is no different.

General manager John Dorsey has shown a willingness to look in some offbeat places for players. It already paid off to an extent last season when the Chiefs claimed seven players off waivers at the start of the regular season. Three of them – defensive backs Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker and tight end Sean McGrath – helped them win a game at one point or another.
