The Morning Fix: Donnie Avery, Charity, World Cup


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.

The National Football Post has a feature on Laurence Duvernay-Tardif.

"A mauling run blocker at McGill, Duvernay-Tardif displayed an aggressive demeanor after moving from the defensive to offensive line. He also has good athleticism. At his pro day, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.94 seconds and reached 31.5 inches on the vertical jump.“Those are things you like to work with on the offensive line,” Reid said. “Physically we liked the things we saw.”"

The Royals and Chiefs teamed up to make an appearance at the Ronald McDonald House of Greater Kansas City.

"“This event was a chance to support the families of the Ronald McDonald House and give back to the community,” Jeff Allen explained. “These families are going through some difficult times so we wanted to distract them and lift their spirits through hanging out with them and serving them lunch.”"

Dylan Leeper thinks Donnie Avery should be nervous about his roster spot.

"Looking at what little Avery brings to the table, coming into camp coach Andy Reid will be watching guys like A.J. Jenkins very closely to see if they could surpass him."

Four days of OTAs start today.

"The Chiefs have four days of OTAs this week, beginning on Tuesday and going through Friday. As with the other OTAs, phase three means there can be 11-on-11 work but there is still no tackling and the players are not wearing full pads, which will come in training camp in late July."

Two non-football stories:

– The World Cup begins this week. Here’s how to watch it like a true nerd.

– I’m sure Patrick would be pleased with Lonnie Chisenhall’s performance last night.
