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.

We’re at that time of the off season where news will come and go in spurts. There will be a flurry of activity and then nothing. Much of this time of year is used for looking back at the season that was. That’s exactly what’s going on at the Mothership as Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin posts his “Top 10 Plays by the Chiefs Defense in ’13.”

Kansas City’s defense recorded six touchdowns in 2013, marking the third-best single-season total in franchise history for most defensive touchdowns. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton’s guys totaled five ‘pick-six’ returns and one fumble recovery that was returned for a score. Below is a chronological look at the Top 10 defensive plays made by the Chiefs in ’13.

Continuing to look back at the rookie class from 2013, Adam Teicher at ESPN has posted his Rookie Report on LB Nico Johnson. This is what he had to say:

Johnson’s rookie season didn’t amount to much. The Kansas City Chiefs were hopeful that Johnson could challenge for a starting spot at one of the inside linebacking spots but he never made a strong push. Injuries slowed him during training camp and the preseason and the Chiefs wound up starting veteran Akeem Jordan instead. Johnson played in six games, mostly on special teams. He was in for 17 snaps on defense all season, most of those coming in the final regular-season game when the Chiefs rested many of their key players and Johnson started.

Finally today, Bleacher Report featured columnist Brett Gering has a great post up discussing the odds of the Chiefs signing their top six free agents.

Tell me that free agency is irrelevant, and I’ll tell you to auction off your No. 31 jersey—the one that has seen more tailgates than a Jeff Foxworthy signing—and prove it. Peel it off the hanger, pay your respects and toss it in a garage-sale bargain bin. 

That’s it for today, Addicts. Enjoy your Tuesday and GO CHIEFS!

    I am still bothered by the selection of Nico Johnson in the first place. Yes, he was known as a run stopper for ‘Bama, but, the negatives on him by scouts was he did not possess speed to catch up with players, he took bad angles and had to be removed on passing downs. So, even healed, where does he really fit with the Chiefs?

      Other than Knile Davis, which of last years draftees did anything worth while. Fisher did….okay I guess he had both good and bad moments. After that? Marcus Cooper but we didn’t draft him, so all in all last years draft has been a let down. I hope one of the top safeties falls to us.
