PLAYERS: Eric Berry
TEAMS: Kansas City Chiefs
St. Joseph, MO - Despite a hamstring twinge that’s kept All Pro Safety Eric Berry on the sidelines for parts of training camp, the former first round pick is not only ready for the Chiefs first preseason game next week but he has an eye on the start of the regular season.

Dexter McCluster's all purpose style fits Chiefs offense: 'My job is to blow the top off the defense'

Kansas City Chiefs WR/RB Dexter McCluster has worked out of the backfield, slot, and wide receiver in the past, and that trend will continue even more so in Andy Reid's offense. His versatile style allows him to line up anywhere on the field, thus creating mismatch nightmares for opposing defenses. Putting him and RB Jamaal Charles as integral parts of an offense that is...

2013 Kansas City Chiefs Preview

The gambling gods giveth and the gambling gods taketh away. We were given one glorious year of Romeo Crennel to line our wallets with 20s and laugh our way to the bank. We all knew coming in that it was gonna be a one year deal, but that didn’t make it any less fun. Still, the world we live in is that much more drab and empty now that he’s gone. I guess I just miss my cash cow...

Hiring of Toub could turn Chiefs special teams into serious weapon

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's the difference between 7-9 and 10-6, and yet nobody really seems to be talking much about it in these parts. Of all the very smart things the Kansas City Chiefs have done since January 1 -- new coach, new general manager, new quarterbacks, new right tackle, new corners -- it's funny how little love has been given to one of the smartest. Lookin'...

Chiefs sign OG Watkins, release OL Tepper

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed offensive guard Rokevious Watkins and released offensive lineman Mike Tepper in their continued search for help along the interior of their line. Watkins was scheduled to work out with the Chiefs for the first time Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 338-pound Watkins was drafted in the fifth round by the St. Louis Rams last year. He appeared in one game...

Kansas City Chiefs are a “team you don’t want to play”

The Kansas City Chiefs rebuilding process may just be complete. “This is the kind of team you don’t want to play. They’re young, they’re fairly talented for a team coming off a 2-14.”  NFL analyst Mike Mayock told according to the Kansas City Star. Mayock spent two days at Chiefs training camp and got the impression that this is a completely revitalized football team...

Running Back Context: Jamaal Charles to Build on Career High Touches From 2012?

As part of our comprehensive draft guide I shared a piece on the importance of assessing a player’s team and offensive context when deciding on his draft stock. We’ve already written about sophomore back Trent Richardson; today we’ll take a look at Jamaal Charles. Charles finished 2012 as fantasy’s 8th highest scoring Running Back and the 14th highest scoring fantasy player...

Relaxed Reid making mark on Kansas City Chiefs

Andy Reid isn't willing to say that he's feeling relaxed or rejuvenated these days, but those who are close to the new Kansas City Chiefs coach will say it for him. The longtime Eagles coach is in the midst of his first training camp with a different franchise in 15 years. One minute he's barking at quarterback Alex Smith, the next minute he's yelling at a defensive...

Dontari Poe Plays For Andy Reid, Can’t Eat Barbecue

(via Getty Image) Chiefs noise tackle Dontari Poe, the first-round pick of the team in 2012, played last season at a listed weight of more than 350 pounds, pretty hefty even for a nose tackle. Poe didn’t consider himself out of shape, but he felt better conditioning could help his game. So he and Andy Reid came out with the idea that Dontari Poe had to swear off barbecue. I suppose...

Kansas City Chiefs 2013 Fantasy Football Projections

QB Alex Smith (Kansas City) Over his time in Philadelphia, Andy Reid made basically every quarterback he had look better than they were, allowing the Eagles to ship off Kevin Kolb, AJ Feeley, and, eventually, Donovan McNabb for 2nd round picks, even though none of the three ever did anything of note for their new team. He also revitalized the careers and Jeff Garcia and Michael Vick...

Kansas City Chiefs 2013 NFL Season Preview

Introduction The Chiefs were no ordinary 2-14 team. They had 5 Pro-Bowlers last year. That might sound baffling, but it’s not. Only Eric Berry and maybe Tamba Hali (who had a down year) didn’t deserve it, but they could have easily been replaced by Brandon Flowers and Justin Houston. Unfortunately for them, football is a team game, not a contest of who has the highest amount...
