Coffee with the Chiefs – John Dorsey speaks


John Dorsey talks about Justin Houston contractB.J. Kissel of

"The deadline for the Chiefs to reach an extension with Houston was by Wednesday at 3 p.m. CT, as Houston was designated as the team’s franchise player back in March. If a deal hadn’t been agreed upon by the deadline, they would have had to wait until after the season to sign him to an extension."

"As for the worst case, that would be 0-4. But the Chiefs are a good enough team that I don’t see 0-4 happening. However, 1-3 seems … not that hard to believe. Mark the Packers game up to a loss. The Peyton Manning-led Broncos are 6-0 against the Chiefs so it’s not a stretch to say Denver wins that game. And then how confident are you that the Chiefs can sweep the Texans and Bengals on the road?"

"So you’re saying there’s a chance? Again, this team isn’t all that far removed from the group that won double-digit games two seasons ago. It beat the Patriots early last year in Kansas City in a Monday night massacre. It nipped Russell Wilson and the Seahawks at home seven weeks later. There is potential here."

Three thoughts on the Justin Houston dealChris Burke of

"Houston is not on Watt’s level (who is?) when it comes to dominating all facets of a game, but the Chiefs were wise not to overlook his incredible 22.0-sack performance from 2014. Houston’s also just 26 years old, so had he hit the free-agent market this year or next, teams would have been lining up around the block to hand him a deal similar to the one he received."

James Jones still on the marketLeigh Oleszczak of KC Kingdom

"The KC Chiefs locked up their top defensive guy on Wednesday morning, but they still could use some help on the offensive side of the ball. Yes, Jeremy Maclin should help significantly in the passing game, but why stop there? Former Packers and Raiders wide receiver James Jones is still available and could fit in great in Kansas City."
