It’s sounding more and more likely that Eric Berry will have to wait until next offseason for that elusive long-term deal. The Kansas City Chiefs star safety who played under the franchise tag in 2016 didn’t make it seem like anything was going to change in 2017. “I’m just being patient because you never know…I’m not getting my hopes up,” Berry said, via ESPN.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made the playoffs the past two seasons in large part with inconsistency at the running back position. Jamaal Charles is the leader in the backfield, but has missed the majority of the last two seasons due to injury, and with his increasing age, there is no telling when or even if he will return to his former self. With the NFL Combine coming up and the...
Running backs in their 30s don’t normally generate a lot of interest on the open market.Even when that running back’s name is Jamaal Charles, the age and the injury history could combine to keep the phone from ringing.It’s not a guarantee that Charles will remain with the Chiefs next season, and according to Pro Football Talk, the Chiefs signed C.J. Spiller.Spencer Ware and...

The Kansas City Chiefs lost in the divisional round of the playoffs this past season for the second consecutive year.

Alex Smith has never quite lived up to the expectations associated with a No. 1 overall pick. He was kicked to the curb in San Francisco by Colin Kaepernick back in 2012, and he’s been a serviceable starter for the Kansas City Chiefs ever since being traded in 2013. However, it appears the Chiefs might follow in the 49ers’ footsteps regarding Smith in favor of either Tony Romo...
I posted a story wondering if Tyler Bray was ready to be the Chiefs No. 2 behind Alex Smith and someone suggested to me in response that they need a veteran back there because the Chiefs are in win-now mode. I won’t argue the value of a veteran back there but I wondered if the Chiefs are really in win-now mode. Are they? I look at the quarterback and the fact that they have this...
