Dez Bryant catches passes from Patrick Mahomes at workout

Dez Bryant is still trying to prove to NFL teams that he has enough left in the tank to contribute, and the reigning Super Bowl MVP is doing what he can to help the former Dallas Cowboys star earn recognition. Patrick Mahomes threw passes to Bryant at APEC training center in Forth Worth on Friday. Bryant went from being one of the most dominant wide receivers in football to not being able to find work in what felt like the blink of an eye. The former first-round pick is still just 31, but he...

A very Merry Draftmas to you all!

Draft season is well underway and the Chiefs are making up some lost time after their run to a Super Bowl title. Things start heating up next week with the NFL Scouting Combine.

While Chiefs fans’ attention has been rightly focused on the run to a ring, we’ve been working behind the scenes to make sure you’re prepared for the...

Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy withdraws from Colorado coaching search

Eric Bieniemy won’t be leaving Kansas City. This week, the Chiefs offensive coordinator withdrew his name from consideration, as Mike Klis of 9News tweets. Bieniemy did not formally interview for the job, but the Buffs pursued him hard nonetheless. Klis’ understanding is that Bieniemy was Colorado’s first choice for the job and they kept in contact with him throughout, even while he was on vacation. Bieniemy has interviewed for a number of NFL head-coaching jobs in recent cycles but...

The Super Bowl-winning Chiefs are laced with weaponry, but the backfield occasionally morphed into a clown car in 2019. Damien Williams enjoyed his moments, but no Chiefs back reached 500 yards on the ground or 250 through the air. The committee approach was far from fatal, but I’d...

What the Chiefs could get in return for Chris Jones might be less than we think

The Chiefs are in a tough position with their star defensive tackle — one that might make it hard to get what many think he’s worth.

Last Friday, I wrote about a trade scenario proposed by ESPN writer Dan Graziano. In a panel discussion, he suggested the Kansas City Chiefs could trade their defensive tackle, Chris Jones, to the Indianapolis Colts for a second-round draft pick “and more.”

Target selling 49ers Super Bowl LIV champions posters?

Target has yet again missed the mark when it comes to having sports merchandise on its shelves rooted in reality. Thanks to an Instagram post from Alex Tran of Niners Nation, there is now photographic evidence that Target is selling posters in which the San Francisco 49ers, not the Kansas City Chiefs, are heralded as Super Bowl LIV champions. Of course it merits noting that the NFL, along with every other major professional sports league, authorizes the manufacture of such merchandise for...
