Coffee with the Chiefs – Jamaal’s speed


Good morning, Addicts! We are in the midst of the offseason doldrums, with nothing really going on except the nervousness or silence. We all want to hear something about Eric Berry signing a long-term deal or Dontari Poe getting that shocking extension.

Yet, we are waiting instead for training camp. It feels like camp is so far away and actually, it is barely over a month. Come July 30, the Kansas City Chiefs will be back in the facilities at St. Joe’s and a few days later, the pads will be cracking.

In the meantime, Kansas City will have to wait and talk among itself about how great this season could be.

Here is the news you need to know…

"Tyler Bray took the majority of No. 2 snaps in organized team activities (OTAs) and the three-day mandatory minicamp, but the battle between Bray, Aaron Murray and rookie Kevin Hogan is far from settled."
