The Morning Fix: Richard Sherman, Odell Beckham, Egg Rolls


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.

Adam Teicher thinks Odell Beckham is the best fit for the Chiefs at wide receiver.

If the Chiefs like Beckham and he’s still available when they make their first pick, it would be a mistake for them to pass him up. Beckham has the potential to have the same impact as Emmanuel Sanders, the free-agent wide receiver the Chiefs thought had agreed to contract terms only to see him eventually sign with the Denver Broncos. Weidl’s point on Beckham’s return ability is not a small one. The Chiefs need a threat returning punts after losing McCluster.

Terez A. Paylor asks if the Chiefs could have fit DeSean Jackson‘s contract under the salary cap.

Corry said Dwayne Bowe’s massive contract could have posed some problems for the Chiefs down the road, too. Bowe boasts a $14 million cap number in 2015, while Jackson’s cap number that year figures to rise to $8 million or $9 million. That’s a lot to invest in one position, especially when the Chiefs will need to ante up to pay a rising star in outside linebacker Justin Houston.

Richard Sherman wrote a column for MMQB about his friend DeSean Jackson.

But DeSean Jackson is the menace, right? He’s just as bad as those guys he parties with because he threw up a Crip sign in a picture and he owns a gangsta rap record label. If only all record label owners were held to this standard, somebody might realize that Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg weren’t the bosses behind NWA. Jim Irsay lookalikes in suits were.

Great stuff from Herbie Teope on the process behind pre-draft visits.

“At the Combine you only get 15 minutes with a player in an official meeting,” Lillibridge said. “When you bring them into your facility, you get hours of time to really get to know the player.”

Lillibridge has a unique perspective on the pre-draft process as a former NFL player and former NFL scout with the Green Bay Packers and Chiefs. He’s currently the only NFLPA certified agent to have played and scouted in the league.

Jeff Allen is now a fan of barbecue egg rolls. The Pitch has the story.

Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Jeff Allen was a stranger to the barbecue egg roll, and I’d never eaten one, either. When we agreed that it was time to try one, we headed to lunch at Smokey’s on the Boulevard BBQ, the Overland Park storefront of father-and-son barbecue team Rob and Jason Harris.

Two non-football stories:

- A fan in West Virginia man drove five hours to see the 76ers sideline reporter.

- There is going to be a sequel to Top Gun for no apparent reason.

    Richard Sherman is racist! “Jim Irsay lookalikes in suits”. Stop being a racist thug! Haha

      Geez, what next? Are you going to boycott Stephen Colbert because Twitter reduced his comment to misinterpretation. The comment by Sherman was not racist. He brought up a legitimate point about the types who really control NWA.

      BTW, Sherman is a friend of Jackson as they played baseball together near Long Beach and, neither, one of them is a thug.

    Excellent point made by Herbie Teope about pre-draft visits. Arrowhead Pride has been running a series of various visits to Arrowhead by prospects, including, the one Ben mentioned, yesterday about the McGill University offensive tackle, Laurent Davernay-Tardif. Six five 305 pound player, who has been honored for his academic achievements in the medical program. 3.88 out of 4.0 grades with 47 credits so far. Come to the Chiefs and complete his degree in medicine at KU, eh?
