Coffee with the Chiefs – Alex Smith loves the fans


Good morning, Addicts! Yesterday was certainly a rollercoaster of emotion wasn’t it? First, the Kansas City Chiefs are coming to training camp and everything is great. Then we find out that Dontari Poe had back surgery to replace a herniated disc and might miss regular season time. Next, head coach Andy Reid states that Eric Berry is doing well but has more tests coming, and a big update will be soon. I am not built to handle all of this.

"Howard started 10 of the 16 games he played in a year ago, and DeVito is returning from a torn Achilles tendon that sidelined him in Week 1. Nunez-Roches is a raw prospect out of Southern Miss, but his size and athleticism made him a favorite among coaches this summer."

Kelce possesses a rare combination of size, speed and athleticism, which made him a matchup problem for defenses last season. He caught a team-high 67 passes for 862 yards and five touchdowns.
