Good morning, Addicts! I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Why? Because I am moving from New York to Chicago today, and I am about to get cracking on a 13-hour drive in a U-Haul van with the leg space of an airplane bathroom. Good times! Onto the latest news about the Kansas City Chiefs.
Albert Wilson leaves practice with injury – Terez Paylor of Kansas City Star
"The injury bug bit the Chiefs for the second straight day on Wednesday, as receiver Albert Wilson left organized-team activities early with what the team called a hamstring injury."
What’s the worst Chiefs personnel decision of last 25 years? – Seth Keysor of Arrowhead Pride
"And in case you think I’m TOTALLY crazy to believe one good defensive player was the difference between 1st round exit and a Super Bowl title, please go back and look at the defensive stats of that 2003 team before Mike Maslowski was injured and after. Sometimes being decent instead of terrible really does hinge on one guy. Ugh."
Jeremy Maclin embraces role at top receiver – Terez Paylor of Kansas City Star
"The Chiefs are counting on Maclin to be ready in September. In 2014, his first as the No. 1 option in an offense, Maclin caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns in Eagles coach Chip Kelly’s high-octane system. Maclin consistently separated vertically from defenders and tracked the deep ball, skills that have been glaringly missing in the Chiefs’ offense."
Life and career of Kansas City offensive coordinator Doug Pederson – B.J. Kissel of KCChiefs.com
"Pederson found his way back to the NFL before the 1993 season. He once again signed with the Dolphins, who had already released him twice. They released him after training camp in 1991 and then had actually brought him in for a few weeks in 1992 before letting him go once again."
