Coffee with the Chiefs – Alex Smith feels great


Good morning, Addicts. There is plenty to read about around the internet on the Kansas City Chiefs. With mandatory minicamp in full swing, the Chiefs are creating headlines all over the place, including their polarizing quarterback. Let’s take a look at what is going on:

Alex Smith is having a terrific spring Sean Keeler of FOX Sports

"And yes, you are forgiven for being a tad cynical about glad tidings, given Smith’s fiduciary ties to Mr. Dink and Mr. Dunk and the whole no-wide-receiver-touchdowns-in-an-entire-regular-season-for-the-first-time-in-modern-NFL-history thing. If the Andy Gang has earned your love, they have also earned at least a little constructive skepticism."

"​Grubbs was acquired from the Saints for a fifth-round pick as part of New Orleans’ off-season salary cap dump, and he’ll fit right in on the Chiefs’ offensive line. Last season was a bit down for Grubbs, as it was for most of New Orleans’ offensive line, but the hope is that Grubbs, who was traded for a fifth-round pick and given a four-year, $24 million deal with $10.6 million guaranteed in his new home, will bolster a line that had its problems in 2014."

Travis Kelce wants the damn ball Adam Teicher of

"The Kansas City Chiefs‘ quarterbacks had an unscheduled visitor during their regular pre-practice meeting on Wednesday. Tight end Travis Kelce paid a visit for a brief moment to suggest some route adjustments that might allow him to get the ball even more."

"On the offensive side, the top play was a catch across the middle from tight end Travis Kelce, who leapt up with one hand and was able to snag the ball out the air more than 15 yards down the field. Alex Smith placed the ball between a couple of defenders and Kelce showed the kind of ability that Chiefs fans are excited to see more of in 2015."
