Coffee with the Chiefs – Sweet kicks


Good morning, Addicts! Hopefully you are enjoying the first day of your three-day weekend, with the Memorial Day holiday upon us.

This is always a great time to sit back and reflect on what has made America such an incredible place to live. It is also a fun moment to spend with the people who matter to most to us, typically family and friends.

As for the Kansas City Chiefs, they will be returning next week for another round of OTAs. It’s always nice to know the guys are in the facility and working toward the Super Bowl, even if it is wearing a t-shirt and shorts.

Here is the news you need to know…

Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos honors Brazil with new cleatsAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Santos, who signed with the Chiefs in 2014 as an undrafted rookie from Tulane, came to the United States as an exchange student while in high school. He settled in Jacksonville, Florida, and knew little of American football at the time. He was hoping to earn a soccer scholarship at an American university."

Changes coming soon to Chiefs’ offensive line in practiceAdam Teicher of ESPN

"That’s the biggest difference in the Chiefs’ offensive line from last year to this year. In 2015, the Chiefs went through the offseason, including training camp and the preseason, looking for the proper starting combination. They never did settle on a regular starting line throughout the season."

Chiefs should start wide receiver Chris ConleyDan Schmelzer of NFL Spin Zone

"With Smith, Maclin and tight end Travis Kelce, the Chiefs have the makings of a strong passing offense. However, they have not been able to produce on a high level. Smith led the Chiefs to 203.4 passing yards per game last season, the 30th ranking passing offense in the NFL."
