The Morning Fix: Danieal Manning, DeSean Jackson, Profanity


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.

Arrowhead Pride informs us the Chiefs are meeting with a Canadian offensive line prospect.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey has a reputation for looking for players far and wide and one in Canada would fit the bill. In fact, he would be the second player from Canada this offseason after WR Weston Dressler. I can’t say I know much about him but I’m intrigued if NFL teams noticed him.

Arrowhead Pride also lets us know the Chiefs met with small school prospect Walt Aikens.

The Chiefs are always going to be looking for big and fast cornerbacks and safeties. It’s one of those positions they could draft every year.

Danieal Manning will meet with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday assuming he does not sign a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals before then.

Manning, who played for the Bears from 2006 to 2010, spent three-plus years as Toub’s primary kick returner. The Chiefs have a need there, as they recently lost Quintin Demps to the New York Giants in free-agency.

This is really interesting. Josh Michaels ranked the top five assistant coaches in Chiefs history. Some really interesting names in there. Highly recommended read.

I think most of you will agree with my selections and the order I put them in. Some of you might not even realize that a couple of these guys were a part of the Chiefs in the beginning of their careers, so it should be fun to take a little stroll down memory lane.

Adam Teicher takes a look at the Chiefs’ two-deep on defense.

Derrick Johnson had another big season last year, but he will be 32 in November and the Chiefs will soon need to begin to think about a replacement.

DeSean Jackson is going to Washington. At least he chose them over Denver and Oakland, right?

After hosting DeSean Jackson for two days, the Redskins have agreed to terms with the free-agent wide receiver on a three-year contract, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, via sources involved in the negotiations.

Two non-football stories:

- The case for profanity in print.

- SEC has changed Missouri, man. Tony Criswell had to call into Paul Finebaum’s show to refute his father’s claims Frank Haith is a less than stellar coach.

    Ben, any nibbles out there concerning the release of Mike Brisiel by the Raiders or at that ripe old age of 31 is he too much on the downhill at this point for the Chiefs? The Oakland 0-line was such a mess I can’t even find any PFF ratings on him for last season. But, I did notice the 2011 7th rated guard Nix by Walter Football (same year as they rated Allen as a tackle) had a horrible year for them.

    Loved the comment from Rob Rang about Aikens. “Gets the jam on receivers in press coverage and has the fluidity to turn and run with them”.

    Manning just signed a 1 yr deal with the Bengals.
