The Morning Fix: Chiefs Sign Two, Tony Gonzalez, Ping Pong Robot

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 today.

Welcome to The Morning Fix.

Good morning, Addicts.

No monologue this morning. Let’s get to it.

Terez A. Paylor has the best GIF you’ll see all day in his breakdown of the two signings Kansas City made yesterday. He also has a good note on Nico Johnson.

It’s worth noting that Nico Johnson suffered an ankle injury in training camp that set back his development last season. But at the NFL Draft combine last month, Reid was confident the former Alabama star has the right mentality to bounce back.

“He got nicked up a little bit, so he’s got to stay healthy and continue to learn,” Reid said. “The one thing you get him with him is that he’s willing to work hard and wants to be good and will do whatever it takes to do that. We just need to get him into camp and get him working.”

Adam Teicher doesn’t think the Chiefs’ signing of Husain Abdullah is insignificant.

The Chiefs received some contribution from Abdullah last season, mainly on special teams. But they also got some use from him as an extra defensive back. They occasionally used him as a nickelback in coverage and he did a nice job with that, so Abdullah has some versatility to his game.

Oakland is now without a left tackle again after free agent signing Rodger Saffold failed his physical (LOL). He’ll be returning to the St. Louis Rams.

According to ESPN, Saffold reached an agreement on a five-year contract to return to the St. Louis Rams with the Raiders having concerns over the condition of his shoulder.

The Cleveland Browns may have accidentally revealed their free agency big board during a press conference.

Things haven’t been going well for the Cleveland Browns lately, and by all indications, today wasn’t any different.

During general manager Ray Farmer’s press conference, what looks like the Browns’ free agent big board can be seen in the background.

We are not the only ones who have been speculating about the motivations of Tony Gonzalez lately. Andrew Brandt has this note is his most recent piece for MMQB.

Perhaps the explanation is as simple as Gonzalez wanting to be free to sign a one-day contract with the Chiefs—and then be placed on their reserve/retired list—but something seems amiss here, perhaps suggesting that the Falcons-Gonzalez marriage did not end well.

Two non-football stories:

- The Big Lead found what must be the world’s best robot.

- I’m interested to know what your answer to this question would be. Not sure what mine would be.
