The Morning Fix: Brandon Flowers, Kyle Love, Aaron Murray’s Brother


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. The final day of Chiefs minicamp is today.

The Chargers Eddie Royal would be on board with signing Brandon Flowers.

“Any time you can add a quality football player to your team, you get excited about it. Knowing the type of guy that he is and knowing what he could bring to our team, he’d be a great addition.”

New England is in the mix for Flowers, too, along with several others.

Flowers has also received interest from the San Diego Chargers, Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings, and the Baltimore Ravens, according to the Sun.

A quick profile of Kyle Love from KC Kingdom.

[H]e was a solid player when he was a Patriot. He started 25 games with the Pats and had 36 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He definitely won’t be a starter in Kansas City, but it will be nice to have a veteran on the defense who can come in and make plays when needed.

Aaron Murray is cheering on his brother during the Bachelorette.

Don’t judge. Murray isn’t your everyday fan. He has a rooting interest in bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s much-publicized pursuit of love because his brother, former minor league baseball player Josh Murray, is one of the eight beaus still in the mix.

Sam Mellinger writes about Justin Houston and the need to re-sign him.

Two years ago, in the awful dysfunction of that 2012 season, some of Houston’s teammates quietly accused the now-dismissed front office of limiting his pass-rushing opportunities to artificially suppress his next contract. Houston said nothing.

Arrowhead has two new exhibits in the Chiefs Hall of Honor.

De’Anthony Thomas’ speed is needed for the Chiefs to be successful, but his usage will have limits.

The Chiefs need to put that speed to good use. There’s a limit to how much they can play Thomas, who at 5-foot-9 and 174 pounds probably isn’t the most durable player around. In his first practice in the true heat of a Kansas City summer this week, Thomas couldn’t cope and had to leave the field early.

- Twitter now supports a version GIFs. Here’s the first one the Arrowhead Addict account sent out.

    Love was at his best playing NT in the Pat’s 3-4 defense. That allowed the Pats to move Wilfork to DE on occasion. The next year, the Pats switched to the 4-3 and the play of Love fell off as it did when he played the 4-3 elsewhere. What really interests me about him coming to KC is the amount of rest he will be able to supply Poe.

      I would love to see Love on occasions play NT while Poe goes to DE.
