The Morning Fix: Rookie Mini-Camp, Andre Johnson, Landon Donovan


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. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

KC Kingdom asks if trading for Andre Johnson is a good idea.

A couple things to consider here, starting with how far are the Chiefs away from being a legit contender? Johnson wants to win and with how tough the AFC West has become, are the Chiefs the right fit?

Official contract numbers for Phillip Gaines and De’Anthony Thomas are in. Adam Teicher has the details.

Thomas was the 124th player drafted. His contract is four years and worth $2,665,108, including a signing bonus of $420,108. Last year the Houston Texans gave the 124th pick, defensive lineman Trevardo Williams, four years, $2,492,612 and a signing bonus of $407,612.

Johnny Manziel is supposedly being sued for sexual harassment. There are already questions about the validity of the lawsuit.

Chiefs Spin discusses some of the intriguing rookie minicamp scenarios.

Of course, the meaningful action won’t come until the entire team converges for organized team activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamps. But for the players in attendance, this is an opportunity to make an impression with the coaching staff.

Two non-football stories:

- Landon Donovan failed to make the World Cup roster for the U.S. and that might be a good thing.

- An interesting read from a man who lost his sister on 9/11 touring the new 9/11 memorial.

    This thread is doomed. The words “Alex Smith” do not appear at any point in the thread.

      Thankfully it doesn’t. Andre is probably going to go to New England if he goes anywhere. I don’t see the chiefs in the mix. He wants a title, so that New England, Denver, San Francisco, Seattle, my New Orleans Saints, and green bay. Maybe Chicago if you want to be generous. Chances are he stays in houston though.

      If it did, you can bet your last dollar that the name Peyton Manning or Drew Brees would follow in comparison shortly after.

    I’m betting Andre goes to New England or stays in Houston.
