Clark Hunt not happy about 2015 scheduleSean Keeler of FOX Sports

"Hunt also clarified (somewhat) the reasoning behind the Chiefs going overseas, that the NFL has mandated that any city that wins a bid to host a Super Bowl must give up a home game to the NFL International Series in the future. Hunt says the Chiefs are giving up the home game now with the hope it will be counted retroactively."

Overall take on Kansas City’s draft – Adam Teicher of

"The Chiefs drafted mainly for need. Two cornerbacks, two inside linebackers and two wide receivers were among their nine picks and those positions were their greatest needs. Those types of drafts rarely work out. Plus, Peters in the first round is a very risky pick because of his behavioral issues."
