Coffee with the Chiefs – Rule changes ahead?


Good morning, Addicts! It’s Friday and that should make you smile. Heck, it should have you standing up out of your office chair and dancing across the hallway, perhaps making a couple of outrageous moves that could cause paid leave.

As for the Kansas City Chiefs, they continue to hurdle through the offseason. It would be nice to see general manager John Dorsey sign Husain Abdullah and Mike DeVito, two guys who have spent each of the past three seasons in Kansas City. Neither would cost much, and both can still really play.

Here is the news you need to know…

Chiefs propose rule that was highlighted by Peyton Manning’s playKevin Seifert of ESPN

"The Chiefs want the NFL to change its illegal forward pass rules to include instances when a quarterback throws a pass after his body has touched the ground (other than with his feet or hands) while the ball was in his possession."

Dwayne Bowe’s career will be more remembered for what he couldn’t doAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Bowe didn’t have the ability to be one of the all-time greats. His first offseason practice with the Chiefs, as their first-round draft pick in 2007, was a festival of dropped passes. He improved his skills in this regard to an extent but never to the point where he was dependable."

Chiefs fulfilled many of their free-agent goalsAdam Teicher of ESPN

"With the obvious exception of Smith, the Chiefs did a nice job of holding on to their key players by making safety Eric Berry the franchise player and re-signing linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson and defensive lineman Jaye Howard. The addition of Schwartz could be a good one."
