Coffee with the Chiefs – Rod Streater is here


Good morning, Addicts! We are at HUMP DAYYYYYYYY. The Kansas City Chiefs are in a holding pattern at the moment, seemingly without enough money to go out and add another free agent. It seems that while the Chiefs would like to add another cornerback or two, the salary cap is getting in the way.

Perhaps general manager John Dorsey will be active on that position in the NFL Draft come April 28, looking at some prospects that were outlined on Tuesday by Ben Almquist, including Eli Apple, Kendall Fuller and others.

Here is the news you need to know…

"But in 2014, he dealt with a fractured foot that limited him to three games. The following offseason, the Raiders added two immediate starters in first-round pick Amari Cooper and free-agent signee Michael Crabtree. Two other youngsters, Seth Roberts and Andre Holmes, also emerged, and Streater ended up catching only one pass for 8 yards in one game as a healthy scratch for most of the season."

"The Eric Fisher part of this is key and a big reason tackle was all the way up in my top five in the Chiefs team needs. Fisher’s rookie deal is up after this year. The Chiefs will have to decide in May of this year whether they want to pay Fisher $10-plus million next season on his fifth year option. As they have shown us previously, they are willing to spend significant resources on a tackle while they feel they can find a guard easier."

"This is voted on solely by teammates. The award is for those “who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.” As a reference of what this award means, the Chiefs gave their Ed Block Courage award to Eric Berry."
