Coffee with the Chiefs – Marcus Peters stands alone


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs have wrapped up their first OTA session of 2016 but have one coming in each of the next two weeks. In other words, we won’t be missing the team for too long.

Meanwhile, it is time to celebrate. This is Friday and the Friday ahead of Memorial Day weekend, no less. Many of you are likely calling out of work as we speak to get out and party with a nice beverage or two and some barbequed glory. Yet, before you go anywhere, take a moment and read up on the Chiefs.

"The NFL, by nature, is rife with turnover. That is especially true at the bottom of the roster, where players are viewed as inexpensive and replaceable.

"Yes, a growing number of Chiefs players are “yogis,” and a handful of them spoke about it Wednesday after completing their second day of organized team activities, or OTAs. Besides Poe, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Marcus Peters have spent some time in a Vinyasa, Ashtanga or slow burn class."
