Philadelphia Eagles:  The Eagles…bizarre…offseason continues on as the team is still exploring extension talks with quarterback Sam Bradford.  Bradford and his agent have already shot down attempts by the Eagles to restructure the current contract.  After taking over control of personnel decisions, Chip Kelly has made a number of questionable moves this offseason including the trade for Bradford.

  • Chiefs’ take: As long as there are still quality players on the Eagles roster with ties to Andy Reid, the personnel moves in Philly will remain intriguing for the Chiefs.  While that does not include Bradford, it could include other players that are let go to make room for the new quarterback contract they are discussing.

San Diego Chargers:  Cornerback Brandon Flowers has been sitting out of offseason workouts so far this year, but informed reporters that he intends to be ready to go for training camp.

  • Chiefs’ take: Obviously Chiefs fans are familiar with this.  Flowers offseason ritual includes working out on his own rather than working with the team during OTAs and minicamp.

Seattle Seahawks:  Quarterback Russell Wilson is not making it any secret that he expects to become the highest paid player in the NFL.  You can do that when you take your team to back to back Super Bowls on your first contract.

St. Louis Rams:  The city of St Louis has essentially confirmed that they don’t even want the Rams in town anymore.  The city is being sued by The Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority over a 2002 ordinance that requires an election before the city uses public money.  Here’s the kicker…if the city wins, it ensures that the Rams will not get the funding for a new stadium and will have to leave town.

  • Chiefs’ take: With San Diego, Oakland, and St Louis all seemingly guaranteed to leave their current cities, the future of the Chiefs rivalry games could become very different.  At this point, it is almost impossible to determine which teams will end up where.

Tennessee Titans:  New Titans quarterback, Marcus Mariota, is the only remaining unsigned rookie from the 2015 NFL Draft.  Mariota told reporters that it would take a while for his contract to be finalized.  This is relatively strange given the rookie wage cap that essentially determines exactly what the contract will be.

That’s it from me Chiefs fans.
