Coffee with the Chiefs – Marcus Peters falling behind?


Good morning, Addicts! The second session of OTAs is in the books for the Kansas City Chiefs, with the third and final session coming next week. There is plenty of stuff to talk about with football actually starting to be played around the league, something which makes me very happy. Without any further rambling, let’s get you caught up on all the latest about the Chiefs.

Marcus Peters is missing key timeAdam Teicher of

"Peters and Nelson have already lost ground in what looks like it will be a compelling competition for playing time at cornerback. That’s because some of the other Chiefs cornerbacks, particularly Phillip Gaines and Marcus Cooper, have stepped forward in their absence. I’ll have more on Gaines on Friday, but he’s been one starter along with Sean Smith and looks like he belongs."

De’Anthony Thomas can help fix Kansas City’s passing attackAdam Teicher of

"The Kansas City Chiefs need a lot more from Thomas as a receiver this year and judging from the first two weeks of offseason practice, they intend to get it. Thomas is now practicing with the receivers and position coach David Culley instead of the running backs, as he did last season."

Chiefs offensive line: Continuity and trendsStagdsp of Arrowhead Pride

"Continuity is HUGE for offensive lines. But what does continuity really mean? To me, it gets to the core of the idea “the whole is greater than a sum of the parts”. You need talent on the offensive line, no question. But you also need those talented players to be able to communicate, work together, and be on the same page when it comes to assignments, combination blocks and picking up blitzes."

Kansas City and Justin Houston talkingTerez Paylor of Kansas City Star

"Houston, who was franchise-tagged by the team during the offseason, is skipping organized team activities for the second consecutive season. He is seeking a long-term contract extension and has not signed his one-year nonexclusive franchise tender, which would pay him a salary of $13.1 million for 2015."
