The Morning Fix: Brandon Carr, Dontari Poe, Offensive Line

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.

Former Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr may be on his last legs in Dallas.

Even if Carr is able to regain his Pro Bowl status from 2009, expect the Cowboys front office to come calling next offseason as it’s more than likely they will ask him to take a pay cut moving forward.

The Chiefs have a new offensive formation called “Poe Heavy.” Take a guess what that means.

So wait, not only do they have one of the biggest athletic human beings in the league lining up as a full back, but also have him going in motion? Could you imagine Dontari Poe catching touchdown passes next season out of the back-field? This guy is truly something else.

Herbie Teope discusses Donald Stephenson and Jeff Allen’s extra offseason work.

The decision for Allen and Stephenson to travel to Arizona came with encouragement from Schwartz, who had arguably one of the best seasons of his career before signing a free-agent deal with the Giants in March.

An interesting outside look at Brandon Flowers and if he fits the New York Jets.

In mentality, I see a fit; Flowers has the wherewithal to play with the best of them — earning peer respect for a 2013 match-up with Andre Johnson of the Texans, and possessing that extra toughness (video) which may cause a flag or two, but is greater than any negative consequences.

Two non-football stories:

- The Royals are the hottest team in baseball. That’s not a joke.

- The San Antonio Spurs may be one of the most underrated dynasties in professional sports.

    Geez, going in motion. Now, that was definitely something the “Fridge” could not accomplish.

    Hey, you forgot to mention this is Stacy Smith’s favorite day. It is the “Free DAT Day at Nike U”. Commencement is today in Eugene. Phil Knight in his eternal quest to help students of Nike is providing free buses to take the newly grads to unemployment lines in both Eugene and Portland. But, DAT is going to be free to fly away to KC.

      It’ll be interesting to see how much DAT retained since rookie camp.
