    @BShark Definition of low risk - high reward

    It’s a grand slam if he is healthy yeah.



  • That WR room as a whole is really pretty scary right now. Nobody elite, but should have 4 or 5 guys who can really play ball.



  • Ross is a very good pickup. No risk because he was basically available for nothing, but a potential elite level talent if he’s healthy. This may be the last time we ever talk about him because his body may not hold up, but he could just as likely be in the Pro Bowl in two years.



  • DE Carlos Dunlap is onboard, finally.

    $8M seems like a lot for a guy at this stage of his career. Hoping he has enough left in the tank to contribute.



  • This is a desperate signing.

    They should have kept Ingram.



  • Agreed, but this time of year that’s about all you’re gonna get, right? The defensive front line could be a mess.



  • I think the signing is fine. Better than them doing nothing. But I don’t understand why they paid that and let Ingram go when Ingram (at least until the contract details for Dunlap are out) was cheaper. Doesn’t make any sense to bring a guy in during camp when you could have just kept Ingram who knows the playbook by now.

    At least they tried to address the position though.



  • @Kcmatt7 I don’t think Ingram wanted to be a Chief - he rebuffed them twice. They had to trade with Pittsburgh to nab him the first go around. I’m not sure the Chiefs offer was as good as the dolphins, but IMO it did not seem like he wanted to negotiate much with KC.



  • From The Athletic:

    In 12 games last year, including the postseason, Ingram recorded three sacks, eight quarterback hits, 20 tackles, one pass breakup and one forced fumble. Dunlap, as a member of the Seahawks, finished last season with 8 1/2 sacks, 14 quarterback hits, 35 tackles, seven pass breakups and one forced fumble in 17 games. He generated pressure on 11.5 percent of his snaps last year when opposing quarterbacks dropped back to pass, which ranked 34th among 176 qualified pass rushers (minimum 200 pass rush snaps)…

    I think this was huge! Ingram was a nice complementary player who helped free the other DL’s, but Dunlap is bigger and can generate massive pressure on his own. Clark is ecstatic.



  • Frank Clark quit drinking! Lost weight. Anxious to see this new man





  • What do folks predict regarding Chiefs regular season record, 11-6 or 12-5.

    I think 11-6 is more realistic.



  • Chiefs sign Danny Shelton for defensive line rotation.



  • @AsadZ The division is so tough and the schedule is brutal.

    I’m going to say 10 wins.



  • Yup I concur, it is possible.



  • Looking like the WR Justin Watson signing is paying off so far. he seems to be getting open deep, over the middle. like it!



  • I really like Fortson! He can catch the ball in a crowd x2!



  • What do you think about RB position.

    Personally, I was very high on Jones but he seems to have disappeared and may not even make the team.



  • I think the Chiefs are stacked with mediocre-ish RB talent. Nothing really wrong with any of them, but they don’t seem to be on that next level. But, is that OK given our offensive approach at times? I think it is.

    Per Ronald Jones…I like him too. he is skilled, but he seems to have a rep for putting the ball on the turf.



  • Well, today’s the day for some big roster moves. The Chiefs are down to a 53 man roster, like the rest of the league. A bit of a surprise that they parted ways with DL Danny Shelton and Stallworth. I thought Shelton was a lock. The OL moves were a tiny surprise…releasing Austin Reiter and keeping Prince. No surprise signings yet, but stay tuned!



  • I was surprised as well.

    On O I was not expecting them to keep 4 RBs, Jones saved his spot with rushing perf. against GB. On the flip side they are going with only 5 WRs, perhaps they sign Fountain to PS.

    On QBs, I was not expecting them to keep 3, it appears that they are very high on Sam B as the future backup and believed that he will be signed by another team.

    Yea I expect Buchele or Henne to have an “injury” and go on the IR to free up a spot.

    4 RBs is a lot. But you can do that when you’re TEs at so versatile that you only need 5 WR. Kelce and Fortson are basically WR.



  • Early rumors were the Chiefs were trying to trade Ronald Jones. I’m guessing they are still trying, and that’s why he made the 53 man. I still like Jones. He could easily be a starter if he runs hard.

    Some of the positions they chose to overpopulate were odd for sure.



  • Chiefs have overhauled their D, several newcomers including rookies who are expected to contribute right out of the gate.

    With such a brutal early schedule, how will they handle the pressure going against likes of Murray, Herbert, Brady, Wilson etc.

    It will be interesting to watch.
