Three biggest additions to the Kansas City Chiefs roster for 2015

Ben Grubbs After barely missing the playoffs in 2014 and coming into the offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs had some work to do. Somehow, with only a shoestring budget, the Chiefs managed to pick up some quality players through free agency, and also the 2015 NFL draft. Each one of these players will hopefully contribute in a significant way throughout their time in Kansas City. That’s...

The Chiefs and Saints complete an interior lineman swap

New Orleans shipped former Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs to Kansas City before the draft. Yesterday, the two teams completed a full-on guard swap when the Saints added a former Chiefs veteran.

Tim Lelito out to prove he is the right man for the Saints left guard spot

Tim Lelito knows he still has to fight to become the New Orleans Saints starting left guard. While some may have thought it was a foregone conclusion that he would replace Ben Grubbs in the Saints starting lineup, Lelito knows that just because a player wasn’t drafted to take the spot or no high profile free agent was signed to challenge him, it does not mean he has won the job...

Kansas City Chiefs Final 2015 Draft Big Board: New faces round out the board

1. La’El Collins Tackle/Guard, LSU (Previous Rank: 1) Nothing changes here. La’El Collins is a versatile lineman, and while some have him going as high as #10 to the Rams, his name being linked in the murder of an ex-girlfriend could have a dramatic impact on his stock. Regardless of this latest news, Collins should still be one of the first lineman taken tomorrow night.

Five Sleepers the Chiefs Should Target Later in the Draft

With many positions of need being filled via free agency(Jeremy Maclin at wide receiver, Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika at guard), the Chiefs have a much better roster than they did coming into free agency. However, they could still add depth at  wide receiver, tight end, defensive tackle, and linebacker. Not every star prospect can be taken in the first round, and so the Chiefs could...

Kansas City Chiefs extend G Ben Grubbs

The Chiefs traded a 5th round pick to the Saints for Ben Grubbs last week. I said it was a decent move for the guard needy Chiefs because, while Grubbs did grade below average last season and while he is going into his age 31 season, he graded out as a top-16 guard from 2009-2013. His salary for 2015 was scheduled to be 6.6 million, but he wasn’t guaranteed anything beyond 2015...
