Analysts see Chiefs drafting wide receiver with first pick – Kansas City Star

It seems more and more draft analysts these days are predicting the Chiefs will take a receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft, and really, that makes a lot of sense to NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah.

Pot Charges Against Bowe Dropped

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who was arrested in November for marijuana possession, pleaded guilty Wednesday to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment.

In return for his guilty plea to the littering and defective equipment charges, the marijuana charge was dismissed. Bowe paid $610 in fines and court costs.

Last year, at least, OL spending paid off – ESPN

It’s just one year, making it a small sample size. I went back through previous years and the correlation between offensive-line spending and making the playoffs isn’t historically so consistent. And a lack of spending at other position groups also seemed to mean failure. The bottom six spending teams at both running back and wide receiver, for instance, didn’t make the playoffs. The bottom four spending teams at tight end, also failed to reach the postseason, and interestingly the top four spending teams at this position group did.

Chiefs’ payroll not so big, in relative terms – ESPN

So I had been spending some time looking at the Kansas City Chiefs salary cap figures recently and actually stopped at one point to ponder the gravity of the situation. They kick out a lot of money to their players.

Turns out the Chiefs don’t have things so bad when it comes to paying the bills. An ESPN The Magazine study of 294 pro sports teams foreign and domestic show the Chiefs to have only the 132nd highest average salary of $2,171,845.

The time is right for the Chiefs to trade Eric Berry – Kansas City Star

The Chiefs should trade Eric Berry. There, let that sit for a moment. The NFL is a cold business, and sometimes the truth hurts, so let’s just get into it. There is no room for sentimental value here.

Everyone is a commodity, and for the Chiefs, Berry is more valuable as a trade piece than the starting strong safety.
