At $4.3 million, Patrick Mahomes' own rookie card was too rich

The Chiefs quarterback talks trading cards and his recent purchase to become part owner of MLS club Sporting Kansas City.

Chiefs release long snapper signed on Monday

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Drew Scott’s Chiefs career lasted only four days.

According to the NFL transactions report, the Kansas City Chiefs have waived long snapper Drew Scott, who was only signed to the team in the past week.

The Chiefs announced Scott’s signing on Monday. It was confusing at first, since Kansas City has long depended on long snapper James Winchester to handle those special-teams duties.

But then we learned that Winchester had been added to the team’s...

Tyreek Hill talks Usain Bolt, his Olympic hopes and life off the field

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

It only seems like he just joined the team.

During the Arrowhead Pride Editors Show podcast on Tuesday, Pete Sweeney and I spent a moment marveling about the fact the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is beginning his fifth season with the team. It seems like it’s been a lot less time than that.

A similar situation exists with Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who is now starting his sixth NFL season. Has it really been that long...

Chiefs Friday training camp notebook: More ‘mature’ Mecole Hardman is making the case

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The third-year receiver was the subject of Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill chatter after day three of Chiefs’ training camp Friday.

Two years ago, before the Kansas City Chiefs had won a Super Bowl and we knew nothing of a worldwide pandemic, Mecole Hardman was a rookie — the new kid on the block. A speedster from the University of Georgia, Hardman was entering the NFL with the league’s best quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.

It was only Mahomes’...

The young linebacker was very honest about how the shortened offseason of his rookie year set him back.

It’s been well-documented by now, but the pandemic-affected NFL season last year was tough on first-year players. You wouldn’t know it by watching the Kansas City Chiefs; rookies like Clyde Edwards-Helaire, L’Jarius Sneed and Mike Danna made big impacts throughout the year despite a shortened offseason with a lack of in-person...

James Winchester, Anthony Hitchens back at practice — but Kelce stays out

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Catching up with the team’s injuries after the thrid practice of training camp.

Kansas City Chiefs long snapper James Winchester and linebacker Anthony Hitchens were back on the practice field for the team’s third practice of training camp on Friday at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri — but tight end Travis Kelce remained on the sidelines.

On Monday, the Chiefs had put Winchester on their Reserve/COVID list. At the same...

Patrick Mahomes given a 99 Madden rating for the third straight year

By the video game’s calculations, the Chiefs quarterback remains the NFL’s best.

Once again, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is a member of the 99 Club for EA Sports’ Madden 22 video game.

Madden 20’s cover athlete — who won the Super Bowl that season — is now a three-time 99 overall in the game. I wouldn’t say this isn’t a shock, because Mahomes is sharing the Madden 22 cover with one of the greatest quarterbacks of all...

3 reasons the Chiefs defense is primed for a big season in 2021

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In their third year under Steve Spagnuolo, the Chiefs defense is in a good position.

For as long as Patrick Mahomes is the Kansas City Chiefs’ starting quarterback, the defense is bound to be overshadowed. For a perennial Super Bowl contender, it’s a good problem to have — and the team’s fans wouldn’t have it any other way.

This offseason, the main talking points surrounding defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s unit have centered on Chris...

Byron Pringle lost seven pounds this offseason, ‘eager’ to return kickoffs

The reserve wide receiver made a point to get more fit for the 2021 season.

Championship-level teams can’t be made up only of star players. While they definitely make things easier, it’s important to complement them by filling out the rest of the roster with players who understand their roles and selflessly execute them — no matter how big or small they may be.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, a great example of such a player is wide receiver Byron...

The team’s second-year running back is aiming to improve as both a receiver and a runner in 2021.

After being selected in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Kansas City Chiefs fans had pretty high expectations for former LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

For just about any other running back, his rookie season in Kansas City — with 1,100 scrimmage yards gained in just 13 games — might have...

Chiefs Thursday training camp notebook: (defensive end) Chris Jones is one happy camper

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Our day-two notebook covers the former defensive tackle’s transition to a hybrid machine for Steve Spagnuolo.

Chris Jones stood at the (virtual) podium during the Kansas City Chiefs’ offseason program and — as candid as could be — thanked God he had finally been given the opportunity to play more as a defensive end.

What had been a talking point for years became a reality once the Chiefs locked up former Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran...
