  Chiefs | No practice yet for Travis Kelce    Mon Apr 15, 02:21 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle), who underwent ankle surgery at the end of last season, has yet to be cleared to return to practice and has no timetable for when he may be able to return to the field. However, he is out of his walking boot and working out along with getting rehab and treatment.

Footballguys view: No worries here. Kelce underwent a cleanup surgery on his ankle last month and has a few months before the start of training camp. He should be good to go when August hits.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes excelled under pressure    Thu Apr 11, 12:46 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes came through with a big-time throw on an NFL-best 12.97 percent of his attempts under pressure last season.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting stat to be sure, but we didn't need advanced data to tell us that Mahomes comes through in a big way when the heat is on. After an MVP season his first year starting in the league, it will be interesting to see what Mahomes does for an encore in 2019.

Footballguys view: Hill has not been charged with any crime. The Athletic reported the address listed on the police report is Hill's residence, and The Kansas City Star reported the alleged incident involved Hill's son.

  Chiefs | Eric Berry released    Wed Mar 13, 04:17 PM

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry was released Wednesday, March 13, ahead of Friday's deadline owning him $7.25 million in guaranteed salary.

Footballguys view: With the signing of Tyrann Mathieu the Chiefs couldn't afford to keep both. They'll have to eat some dead money with this move. It clears over $9.5 million in cap space while taking on $6.95 million in dead money in 2019 and $8 million in 2020.

  Chiefs | Justin Houston released    Sun Mar 10, 04:29 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston was released Sunday, March 10.

Footballguys view: Houston had 9.0 sacks in 2018 and can still be effective as a part-time pass-rusher. The Chiefs tried to trade him away but no team wanted to take on the big contract he was still owed. He should have a market now that he's a free agent.

  Chiefs | Carlos Hyde to have a role?    Sat Mar 9, 09:24 PM

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) could see significant playing time after agreeing to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, in the opinion of Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, because of general manager Brett Veach's preference for bigger backs. 'I kind of have a thing for 220-pound backs that can run and catch and block,' Veach said.

  Chiefs | Carlos Hyde joining Kansas City    Sat Mar 9, 03:47 PM

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) agreed to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, March 9. Yahoo Sports! writer Terez A. Paylor reports the deal is worth $2.8 million, citing a source.

Footballguys view: Hyde is a powerful runner who can also catch passes out of the backfield (although he didn't do that much in 2018 after having 59 receptions in 2017). The Chiefs are likely to use him in a RBBC with Damien Williams in 2019. Williams is the lead back and better receiver. We'll see how this combo works out in training camp and the preseason.

  Chiefs | Two NFC clubs interested in Dee Ford    Sat Mar 9, 11:51 AM

The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers have expressed interest in trading for Kansas City Chiefs LB Dee Ford, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs may only be asking for a second-round pick. That's a good price for a pass rusher like Ford. New Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo is changing the Chiefs' base defense from a 3-4 to a 4-3 front, a move that doesn't fit Ford's skill set.

  Chiefs | Carlos Hyde to visit Kansas City    Fri Mar 8, 11:45 PM

Free-agent RB Carlos Hyde (Jaguars) is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 9.

  Chiefs | KC starts contract talks with Tyreek Hill    Tue Mar 5, 02:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill has begun contract extension talks with the Chiefs on what is expected to be a record-breaking deal, according to a source.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Hill has far outplayed his rookie contract. It's not outlandish to think he could become the highest paid receiver in the league. That title currently belongs to Odell Beckham Jr. at $18 million annual average salary.

Free-agent QB EJ Manuel (Raiders), WR Sammie Coates (Texans), WR Davon Grayson (Chiefs) and CB Dontae Johnson (Cardinals) signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Friday, Feb. 22. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Any target for Patrick Mahomes will get our attention in dynasty formats. Coates has been a bust during his pro career but we know the physical talent (strength, speed) is there. Grayson was undrafted out of East Carolina last year but he's got the speed and athleticism to get open outside. Super deep dynasty GMs should be following along with these two just in case.

  Chiefs | Dee Ford expected to be tagged    Sat Feb 16, 07:32 PM

Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent LB Dee Ford likely will receive the franchise tag this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ford is not against playing on the franchise tag in 2019, telling NFL.com earlier this year "That's out of my control. If it happens, it happens, and I don't mind it." He could have an even larger payday in 2020 if he continues to perform at a high level this season. Either way, we don't expect Ford to go anywhere this offseason.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill may receive extension    Thu Feb 7, 06:39 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is eligible to sign a contract extension this offseason, and general manager Brett Veach said he expects to have conversations with Hill's agent over the next several weeks.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs acquired Hill as a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft. He fell in the draft due to off-field concerns but has stayed out of trouble and produced at a high level in the pros. He's under contract through the 2019 season but the Chiefs may want to get a deal done sooner rather than later so his price doesn't go up further.

  Chiefs | K.C. nixes hoops for Patrick Mahomes    Thu Feb 7, 01:33 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been banned by the team from playing basketball after general manager Brett Veach saw a recent online video of Mahomes playing in a pick-up hoops game. 'As soon as I saw (video of Mahomes playing basketball), it probably took me about two seconds to call his agent and tell him that was a big no-no,' Veach said Thursday during an interview on Kansas City radio station WHB 810 AM. 'The (Chiefs') Kingdom can rest assured that we have that under control: No more basketball for Pat.'

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Mahomes is a superstar quarterback who doesn't need to get hurt playing basketball. This is commonplace for top players in the NFL. Mahomes can hoop it up as much as he wants when his playing days are done.
