Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Kansas City 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.
Larry Johnson is back in the news again.
A Las Vegas judge gave a lawyer until July 30 to produce proof that former NFL running back Larry Johnson met terms of his sentence following his conviction in a domestic violence case involving an ex-girlfriend at a Las Vegas Strip resort.
B.J. Kissel gets you set for training camp.
Fresh off the best single-season turnaround in franchise history, the 2014 Kansas City Chiefs will soon report to the campus of Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri for training camp.
Led by second-year coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs will look to build upon the foundation laid a season ago when the team finished with an 11-5 record and a berth into the playoffs.
The bar has been set and the expectations are high, so let’s take a look at a few of the big storylines coming to St. Joseph over the next few weeks.
Eric Fisher has a profile on KC Kingdom up right now.
I agree that Fisher is in a position to improve this season. He’s being moved to his preferred spot at left tackle, and honestly, it’d be tough to have a worse season than he did last year. Fingers crossed that Eric Fisher does indeed have a breakout year!
Kansas City will attack the receivers problem with numbers.
The Chiefs coaching staff spent a great deal of time scheming ways for receivers to get open in 2013. The hope for 2014 is that the Chiefs have added the pieces who can do just that while relying on development from players already in-house.
Alex Smith wants to stay with the Chiefs, Randy Covitz writes.
“I’d love to have it done,” Smith said in a phone interview on Thursday. “I love Kansas City, I love the coaching staff, the players. … But when you’re talking about this many years and that type of deal, you want it done right. You want both sides happy, and you want it to be something that is going to last and you can play out. A lot of things go into it.”
