The Morning Fix: Chiefs News and Headlines 2/12/2014


Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag.  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 Fix.

As the NFL off season inches ever closer to free agency and the draft, there’s plenty to keep us going here at Arrowhead Addict. One of the main stories in the news recently is former Mizzou defensive end, Michael Sam. But should Chiefs Kingdom even worry themselves with the media circus that could potentially follow Sam to his eventual NFL team? Would the Chiefs even be interested in drafting him? Randy Covitz at the Kansas City Star addresses that issue in his newest piece.

"Sam’s talents are considered as worth a third-round pick at best, and the Chiefs have bigger needs to fill.But on day three, when the draft concludes with rounds four through seven, the Chiefs will have to take a good look at Sam, the SEC defensive player of the year who had 11 1/2 sacks in 2013."

Still looking at the draft and prospects from that venue, James Dudko, featured columnist at Bleacher Report breaks down some 2014 NFL Draft Prospects Who Could be Instant Starters for the Chiefs.

"Stephon Tuitt has justifiably risen up draft boards as a hulking 3-4 end who does more than just occupy double-teams. In fact, Tuitt is a constant disruption to offensive blocking schemes.Not only does he swat opponents aside with strength, he also uses quickness and technical guile to make his own share of plays behind the line of scrimmage."

Finally today as we stop looking ahead to the draft and look back once again at the rookies drafted last year, Adam Teicher at ESPN breaks down his thoughts on Sanders Commings.

"While his meaningful debut as an NFL player was set back a season, Commings is going to play in 2014, assuming he stays healthy. Starting free safety Kendrick Lewis is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent and Commings could move into Lewis’ spot. He also has coverage skills and the Chiefs may use him as an extra cornerback in passing situations. Either way, the Chiefs like his skills and he figures to be a part of the playing group in the defensive backfield in 2014 and, probably, beyond."

That’s it, Addicts. Enjoy your hump day and as always, GO CHIEFS!
