VANCE WALKER NEWS

First Round Pick Analysis By Division: AFC West

Denver Broncos:The Broncos lost two key cogs in Terrance Knighton and Rahim Moore and both spots are now evidently weaknesses. They picked up two decent rotational players, Vance Walker and Darian Stewart, but neither one looks to be capable of starting at the position full time.

Fresh off of a disappointing loss to the divisional rival Denver Broncos last week, the Chiefs traveled to Arizona to take on the 9-3 Cardinals, in what some deemed a “must win game.” However, the Chiefs failed to deliver in crunch time, ultimately proving that they have plenty of issues to iron out before going toe to toe with a playoff caliber team again.  Although much dimmer...

Kansas City Chiefs take to Twitter following big win over Dolphins

The Kansas City Chiefs rolled into Miami on Sunday with one mission, and that was to avoid starting off the season 0-3. It’s been well documented over the years that 0-3 starts aren’t exactly key predictors of success, as the last team to kickoff the season winless over the first three weeks and make the playoffs were the 1998 Buffalo Bills. Thankfully, the mission was accomplished...

With Vance Walker, Chiefs got better, and saved money, too

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- As we know, the Chiefs simply didn't have the salary cap space to make a big splash in free agency. That was last year's narrative. But this year they did make a rather shrewd signing when they recently inked former Raiders defensive tackle Vance Walker to a three-year, $13.75 million deal.
