The Morning Fix: Offseason Training Begins, Dwayne Bowe, Newsroom


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. Football things are back. This is enjoyable.

Sam Mellinger writes the first piece of good news from the offseason comes from an unlikely source: Dwayne Bowe.

We are more than four months from a real game, and if you can’t be optimistic at this point you should probably find something else to do in the fall. But there just might be something real here with Bowe, as important to the Chiefs’ chances of following up a 2013 playoff spot as anyone.

Terez A. Paylor talks Eric Fisher.

Reid said Fisher has spent the entire offseason in Kansas City, rehabbing and working out in hopes of becoming a bigger, stronger and better player.

“He’s doing all of his lower-body work and rehabbing the shoulder, doing what he can,” Reid said. “Good progress is being made.”

A lot of bonuses will be handed out for players who meet the requirements for offseason workouts.

Most if not all players will attend when the program begins Monday and attendance will be something close to perfect throughout. The Chiefs, like the other 31 teams, prefer players to be working out under their guidance and frown upon those who don’t attend and participate.

John Dorsey will look just about anywhere to find a quality football player.

“I was down at the [high school] all-star game maybe two or three years ago, Texas vs. the Nation. I happened to be out to dinner and was talking to some gentleman and he started talking about great high school players from Arkansas who didn’t play football in college. He said to keep an eye on [Harris] because he was all-state and this and that. I always have a Franklin planner with me where I keep notes. I just wrote down his name with the note to research him when he was eligible for the draft.”

Travis Kelce had microfracture surgery in October and may not be medically cleared yet to do anything beyond the first phase of offseason workouts. Should we be concerned? Herbie Teope says no.

“If I was reading the newspaper and I’m a Chiefs fan, that wouldn’t disturb me knowing what I know about it,” Dugas said. “There are three more months until he needs to be full-go.”

KC Kingdom’s Leigh Oleszczak reviewed the 2012 NFL Draft.

With the 2014 NFL Draft for the Kansas City Chiefs knocking on the door, it’s fun to go back and revisit past NFL Drafts. I covered the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2013 draft class yesterday, which you can check out here.

2012′s draft class brought some decent players to Kansas City. There also have been some players who didn’t make the cut or are with other teams now.

Two non-football stories:

- I do not know how this kid is alive.

- Aaron Sorkin apologized for the Newsroom. Not sure why, love the show, but he did.

    Interesting how Dorsey found out about Harris. I have written that the Chiefs have shown interest in Erik Swoope, as well. He is another tall BBer who didn’t play football. However, it appears the Broncos spotted him first.

    As to any criticism of “Newsroom”, the only negative comments I have read are from a female TV writer for the Oregonian who stated she thought he was condescending towards women. However, I have never thought her thoughts about anything shown on TV were worth the print wasted by the Oregonian.
