The Morning Fix: Tight Ends, Deon Anthony, ‘Average’ Chiefs


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.

Terez A. Paylor talks tight ends and other OTA notes.

"Thus far in camp, however, the tight ends have been prominently involved. Fasano battled injuries last year but finally looks healthy, while second-year tight end Demetrius Harris — an ex-basketball player — has come back bigger and stronger and has occasionally gotten a chance to run with the first team."

ESPN’s “Four Downs” with their AFC West bloggers focuses on the Chiefs wide receivers situation.

"But from this vantage point it appears the Chiefs have a collection of players at this position who don’t add up to much."

The Chiefs have signed former Troy quarterback/wide receiver Deon Anthony.

Arrowhead Pride’s Matt Verderame says cutting Brandon Flowers would be a bad idea for the 2014 Chiefs.

"Look, I understand the Chiefs need to make cap space for guys like Houston, Smith and eventually Berry. However, there are easier ways (and less painful ones). First, sign Houston to an extension with his new deal kicking in next year, along with a signing bonus he receives immediately."

Sean Keeler ponders if the Chiefs are the “most average” good team in the NFL.

"In other words, much of the The Andy Gang remains an enigma, an unknown, a pendulum that could swing either way. And those unknowns could damn well determine whether Reid’s behind the wheel of a carriage or a pumpkin when the clock finally strikes midnight."
