The Morning Fix: NFL Draft, Travis Kelce, Batkid


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 writes there is some hope for the Chiefs passing game in Travis Kelce.

The Chiefs expect Kelce back at full strength next season. While it’s a big leap from being an offseason star to regular-season receiving threat, Kelce has the kind of potential to make it successfully. That potential indeed makes Kelce someone to consider as the Chiefs continue to search for consistent receiving threats.

Chiefs are looking for a beneficiary for their 2015 Charity game.

The Chiefs annual charity game is held during the preseason, typically in August. The game has raised more than $4.5 million in the past nine years alone.

Bleacher Report has a video on a sleeper quarterback for the Chiefs on day three of the draft.

Watch as Adam Lefkoe and Bleacher Report NFL Analyst Chris Simms identify which cerebral QB the Chiefs should target in the video above.

Former Chief Josh Bellamy is going to Chicago.

The 6-foot, 206-pound Bellamy first entered the NFL with the Chiefs, signing as an undrafted free agent on April 30, 2012. As a rookie, he appeared in three games for Kansas City, making two tackles and returning five kickoffs for 101 yards.

Former Chiefs defensive end Brandon Moore was suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Brandon Moore, a defensive end who was undrafted out Texas in 2013 and recently claimed on waivers by the Redskins, has been suspended for the first four games of the 2014 regular season, per a league source.

Jeffri Chadiha says the quiet Chiefs need to make a statement in the draft.

Given how quiet they’ve been thus far, no team in the league faces more pressure to hit it big when the draft arrives next month.

There is one obvious explanation for the Chiefs’ lack of major moves since the period for signing unrestricted free agents began on March 11: They don’t have much money to burn. Currently, they have about $4.5 million in salary-cap space, which ranks among the least favorable situations in the league.

Kansas City sorely needs a few more difference-makers on its roster for this coming fall. If the Chiefs don’t find enough, we will be looking at a team that takes a major step backward after making significant strides last season.

Two non-football stories:

- UConn women went 40-0 on the season and won the NCAA Women’s basketball title last night.

- Batkid threw out the first pitch at San Francisco’s Opening Day on Tuesday.

    Hope a lot of posters re-read Chadiha’s comments. Lots of truth and will shape this season for the Chiefs. Hit with a huge draft and the team is becoming a shaker and mover in the league. Hit with one or one and one potential star and ugly could be the byword this season.

    It’s hard to find an impact player in a rookies first year much less 3 or 4 when you only have 2 picks in the top 100. Top 123 to be exact. They will definitely need great improvement from last years rookies to have a good year.
