The Morning Fix: Eric Berry, Rookie Salaries, Championship Ale


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. Here’s your internet required Throwback Thursday picture.

Eric Berry tells the Boarder Patrol he is not concerned about a trade.

"“I don’t really get into all that,” Berry told the Border Patrol. “Everybody comes up with rumors and opinions. I feel like that’s somebody’s opinion. If I didn’t hear it from the coaches or the GM I feel like they’re straight forward enough to come to me and tell me about that if it was true."

One of KC’s undrafted free agents is getting some high praise.

"He’ll have to work on his pass coverage game, but he could be a great fit for special teams or as a rotational player. He doesn’t always drive through tackles, but he sure can wrap up. I definitely think he can make an impact in the NFL."

Josh Michaels comes up with his all-time Chiefs team.

"I’ve broken each position up individually and I’ll only go two deep at each, including receiver and corner backs. A lot of tough decisions were made, but I think most of you will agree."

Adam Teicher breaks down the estimated contracts for the six Chiefs draft picks.

"Exact contract terms are yet unavailable. But Fulton was the 193rd pick of the draft and he could expect a contract similar to that of the 193rd pick last year, Green Bay Packers linebacker Nate Palmer. The Packers gave him a four-year deal worth $2,258,896. Included was a signing bonus of $98,896. That was the only guaranteed money in the contract."

Aaron Murray is ready to get to work.

"Aaron Murray, one of the newest members of the Kansas City Chiefs, says he’s ready to hit the field and start competing when the team’s rookie mini-camp opens in two weeks."
