The Morning Fix: Ryan McKee, Hunt Family, 50 Cent, Don Johnson


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. 99 days until football returns!

De’Anthony Thomas is still receiving coaching via Skype, via Adam Teicher.

"He and (running backs coach) Eric Bieniemy work closely every day and go over stuff either by Skype or however they work it,” coach Andy Reid said. “He’s actually holding on to what we’ve given him pretty good.”"

The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ryan McKee after his workout at the rookie minicamp.

"McKee signed with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent and played in four games during the 2009 season. He went to training camp and spent time on the practice squad of the St. Louis Rams in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons."

The Hunt family has plans to re-invest into downtown Kansas City, Kansas.

"“It will bring hope for people of Kansas City, Kan.,” Lamar Hunt Jr. said.Through his charitable division of his Loretto Companies, Hunt has decided to sink some of his football money into downtown KCK’s long empty buildings.“We’ve bought this building and this building,” he says as he walked down the 700 block of Minnesota Avenue."

The initial reports on Dee Ford are positive.

"“I think he’s done a great job of jumping in the book and learning the drops, the things that you need to do with the pass coverage. That’s not an easy thing with all the combination things that we do. I’m happy with what he’s done there.”"

Two non-football stories:

– A.J. Ellis is going on the disabled list because he sprained his ankle celebrating Josh Beckett’s no-hitter on Sunday.

– You will be sad all day long if you do not read this Don Johnson interview.

Ladies and Gentlemen, 50 Cent!
