The Morning Fix: OTA Stars, Ray Farmer, Adam Sandler


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.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Ray Farmer’s staff features a lot of former Kansas City people.

"Kuharich said to me, “I know what you’re getting at. I hear it. I tried never to operate that way. If I would have taken that approach, I would have never hired Ray Farmer (in KC)."

KC Kingdom breaks down Ryan Succop and Cairo Santos.

"Santos, on the other hand, might be good for Kansas City. He had quite the leg during his college football days, which is something that Succop lacks. Santos was able to knock through a 57 yarder (a Tulane school record)."

Adam Teicher reviews Dee Ford.

"Ford is learning a new position. He was a defensive end in college at Auburn, so it could take him a while to master the nuances of his new position. Even if Houston continues his holdout into the season, it might be much to expect Ford to assume his spot in the regular defense anytime soon. But Zombo can handle that. Ford should be a major component in the rush in passing situations."

Sean Keeler looks at three players who made big steps during OTAs.

"But given all that, which Kansas City Chiefs gained the most traction from the middle of May to the middle of June? Kicker Cairo Santos has a mule’s leg and could make Ryan Succop’s life interesting for a while. Safety Husain Abdullah ran with the first-team defense, and appeared to run well. Ditto tight end Anthony Fasano, and even wideout Donnie Avery. It was hard to whittle the list down to just three, but here were probably your biggest stars in shorts …"
