Coffee with the Chiefs – Checking in on rookie camp


Hey, Addicts. I hope you enjoyed Saturday. I have been in transit, going to my sister’s graduation on Sunday, so I’ve been checking in on the Kansas City Chiefs through my smartphone (thank God for technology). Knock on wood, there was not any Earth-shattering news coming out of Arrowhead. At this time of year, no news is good news. However, there is still plenty to catch up on. Let’s get rolling.

"Even though his dad was one of the greatest wrestlers in history (the story line leading up to Starrcade ’97 was so amazing), he was never pushed into wrestling."

"The Chiefs only let the media shoot video from the first 20 minutes of practice, which mainly involves stretching and warmups. But in the video below, you catch raw footage of the Chiefs quarterbacks warming up, their receivers practicing one-handed catches and their defensive backs working on their backpedaling."

"The interest, however, was mutual. At 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds with 31 1/4-inch arms, Bausby — a three-year starter in college — possesses solid size and length to play in a press-man scheme like the Chiefs have."

"Morse said that when he arrived in Kansas City last weekend he found out that’s where the Chiefs were planning on using him. So he quickly set about working on his snapping, which was somewhat inconsistent the last time he played the position — in 2012 at the University of Missouri."

"Start with Chris Conley, the Chiefs’ third-round pick out of Georgia. The cerebral wide receiver spent last summer filming a 26-minute “Star Wars” fan film called “Retribution.” The film featuring his coach, Mark Richt, has been viewed more than a half-million times on YouTube."
