Good morning, Addicts! It’s a beautiful Tuesday, and we have plenty of Kansas City Chiefs news coming your way. It is about six weeks until the start of training camp, but before then we have an OTA session, followed by mandatory minicamp, interluded throughout with Justin Houston talk. First, here is what we are reading from around the web:
Chiefs have highest offensive turnover rate from ’14 to ’15 – Adam Teicher of ESPN.com
"The Chiefs had heavy turnover at wide receiver, where they lost Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins, among others. They return 51 percent of their wide receiver snaps, the NFL’s second-lowest percentage behind the Miami Dolphins."
Ford could become one of best 2014 draft picks – Adam Teicher of ESPN.com
"Ford’s absence is still troubling. He plays a so-called premium position and has tremendous skills in rushing the passer. On potential alone, it stands to reason that Ford belongs in the Top 25 because if he does find himself, he’ll have more of an impact on the game than at least some of the players ranked ahead of him."
Bausby’s roots to Chiefs run deep – B.J. Kissel of KCChiefs.com
"A kid that grew up in the shadows of the building that housed his childhood heroes in Will Shields, Tony Gonzalez and other former Chiefs greats is now calling that same place his office—the place he drives to work every day and puts on the same jersey of those he grew up idolizing."
Morse, Kush acting like brothers – Sean Keeler of FOX Sports
"Time and training camp will tell — blocking and tackling are hard to gauge when the Andy Gang is in shorts — but the Chiefs seem to be serious about this whole “finding the best five” on the offensive line mantra. Which means, if you’re Morse, who played every position on the line during his time at Mizzou, it’s to your advantage to be ready to step up at any slot, at any time, for any reason."
Kansas City’s coaching staff is rare – Joel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride
"The Chiefs haven’t had the same head coach and offensive and defensive coordinator for three straight seasons since the 2003 season when Dick Vermeil, Al Saunders and Greg Robinson were running the show. Three years is all they got as Robinson was out the next year which brought in Gunther Cunningham."
