Chiefs news: OTA happenings from Day 2

facebooktwitterreddit

The Kansas City Chiefs are back on the field Wednesday for the second day of their OTA sessions. The first OTA will conclude on Thursday before the players return next week.

There has been some good info floating around about the progress being made by the Chiefs, including a few Vines. They are laid out below, and will be continuously updated throughout the day. If you love Kansas City football, this post is the place to be.

If Gaines can emerge as a real difference-maker for the Chiefs in a suddenly crowded secondary, this would be a huge deal. Gaines looked promising last year as a rookie but struggled with injuries.

With Demetrius Harris still recovering from a broken foot he sustained in Buffalo last year, O’Shaughnessy might be forced into a larger role than expected. If he can contribute, that would go a long way toward replacing Anthony Fasano.

Mauga has his flaws such as run fits and getting lost in space at times, but he’s a servicable player who can shed blocks. Gee, I wonder why.

Always nice to see the rookies showing up early in camp. Wilson, if nothing else, has some serious agility. Getting around bodies on the ground is key for linebackers in the run game.

This is beautiful. Johnson is 32 years old and coming off Achilles surgery, and yet the man is showing up like that? Sets a tone for the rest of the group.

Perhaps the biggest key to the defense going from really good to elite. If Ford can make the jump, defensive coordinator Bob Sutton will be doing cartwheels.

How can you not love Tamba? After taking a $7 million pay cut to stay in Kansas City, he deserves a statue. Here are some other clips and comments from the Chiefs fine beat writer at the Kansas City Star, Terez Paylor:
