The Kansas City Chiefs are back at training camp for the 2016 season … all of them.

For the first time this season, the Chiefs will have their entire team at St. Joe’s for practice. It’s always exciting to watch all the guys hit the sleds for the first time, watching them come together as a team. For years, there was nothing to be excited about. They Andy Reid showed up, and that all changed.

Hopefully the team can get ready without getting hurt, something that one or two teams always fall prey to.

Green Bay (Clinton-Dix and Burnett) also deserves mention, and Denver (Ward and Stewart) is pretty strong as well."
