The Kansas City Chiefs are together again, working out at OTAs.

For the first time this year, the Chiefs will be together as a team for the next three days. This is the beginning of Phase Three, with the offseason now into the OTA sessions. None of these are mandatory, so if a player skips, there is no penalty.

Look for Eric Berry to miss this practices since he has not signed his $10.8 million franchise tag. Berry wants a long-term deal and will eventually get one wither before or on the July 15 deadline, much like Justin Houston last year. Speaking of Houston, he is continuing his rehab from knee surgery and won’t be participating.


As for Phillip Gaines and Jamaal Charles, we aren’t sure what the gameplan is. Both are coming off torn ACLs but could be limited in the OTAs, which already are considered non-contact.

All of the rookies should be in attendance, despite KeiVarae Russell yet to sign his deal. Russell has signed an injury waiver, protecting him from losing any money should he become hurt.
