Coffee with the Chiefs – Bad report from camp?


Good morning, Addicts! This Friday is awesome for a few reasons. One, it’s a Friday. Two, it’s a Red Friday. And three, it’s a gameday Friday, which you can only say in the preseason. Tonight, the Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium.

Hali will also play some, unlike last week."
