SaintsChiefsfan is actually Adam Teicher

Brandon Flowers - DB - Chiefs ESPN Chiefs blogger Adam Teicher considers Brandon Flowers a candidate to be released next offseason. The Chiefs are facing major cap issues the next two seasons and want to extend both Justin Houston and Alex Smith. Flowers struggled in DC Bob Sutton's press-man scheme last year, finishing with just one interception and grading out negatively in pass coverage. Releasing Flowers would save $7 million against the cap in 2015. Source: Mar 29 - 7:37 PM

Raiders Offensive Line 2014?

Austin Howard - T - Raiders Coach Dennis Allen confirmed Austin Howard will be tried at right guard. Allen said the Raiders want to start the "best five linemen." Howard inked a five-year, $30 million deal on day two of free agency. If we were to predict what the Raiders would like their Week 1 line to look like, we'd go LT Donald Penn, LG Kevin Boothe, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Howard, and RT Menelik Watson. Tony Bergstrom could push Boothe. Mike Brisiel is a release candidate. Source: Alex Marvez on Twitter Mar 24 - 9:18 PM

Aaron "Shoot me now" Murray

Aaron Murray - QB - Bulldogs Georgia QB Aaron Murray has a "hot name" in scouting circles, says ESPN's Todd McShay. "He showed toughness this year, he can handle pressure," McShay said. "He doesn't have great size, he has marginal arm strength, but in the right system, a Sean Payton system, he can have success and be a really good backup, and who knows, one day could maybe be a starter." Murray, progressing well from ACL surgery in November, is hopeful he will be able to work out at Georgia’s pro day on April 16. Source: ESPN's First Draft Podcast Mar 22 - 4:39 PM


But more importantly, the Chiefs don't have a ton of cap space ― only $4.8 million, according to NFL Players Association records ― and Jackson has a 2014 cap number of $12.5 million. The Chiefs could conceivably make the money work by cutting some players or restructuring some deals (which is always easier said than done, by the way), but it's likely Jackson, 27, would also have to be open to restructuring his current deal, which is set to pay him about $30 million over the next three years.

2014 draft comp picks?

Over the last 2 years, my friend Craig Turner has done compensatory pick projections very accurately for my former football blog. Last year, he correctly matched 24 teams with the correct round for which they received a pick. He projected an additional 5 teams to receive a pick, but missed by just one round. The 3 remaining picks he missed on were due to some gray area, which he learns from every year.

Defensive adjustments 2014

With Talib moving on to the Denver Broncos, the Patriots countered by bringing in CB Darrelle Revis. In addition to it being clear that the Broncos and Patriots are in a heated battle for AFC supremacy, it’s also quite clear that Belichick believes in his new model of defense. Just as recently as two years ago, Patriots fans were lamenting the use of "off coverage" (what fan base doesn’t hate off coverage?), but last year saw New England press opposing receivers as much as any team in the league.

Cam is Sad

The Panthers have now lost their top-four receivers to free agency and currently have Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt atop their depth chart.

Ryan Shazier

Ryan Shazier - LB - Buckeyes Scouts will head to Ohio State's pro day hoping to ascertain Ryan Shazier's ideal position at the next level. The event takes place on Friday in Columbus. "Shazier is unquestionably one of the most explosive athletes in the draft, but scouts are still undecided about the Ohio State linebacker's ideal position at the next level," wrote's Bucky Brooks. "Shazier shows exceptional burst as an edge rusher and is an exceptional sideline-to-sideline player from the second level. He runs down ball carriers from the backside yet is instinctive enough to sort out run-pass plays in the backfield and fall back into pass coverage when necessary." The NFL adores versatile players, and Shazier is that. Shazier (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) tweaked his hamstring late last month, so hopefully he's fully healed. Source: Mar 3 - 6:51 PM

Sack Masters

How Quickly Did They Get to the QB? Measured here is the time from snap to sack for each pass rushers. Generally, times greater than 5 seconds are coverage sacks. Times between 3.5 and 5 seconds are the majority of sacks and what you would call "average sacks". Sacks faster than 3.5 seconds are speed sacks which result from a good jump off the line or just great burst.

Mark Davis

Besides the stadium deal, Davis touched on several topics during his lengthy interview with the Chronicle, which you can read here. If you're a Raiders fan, or you just want to read about Davis calling the 2012 Chiefs 'inept,' it's worth a click.

Brandown Browner

Browner will contend that the NFL continued to subject him to periodic drug testing after he was cut by the Denver Broncos in 2006. Browner also will contend that the NFL notified him of those tests at an address where he no longer resided, and that the NFLPA never informed him of the mounting penalties and suspensions arising from his failure to submit to testing during the five years after he was cut by the Broncos and returned to the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks.

Cap to be 130 Million for 2014

The NFL salary cap for 2014 will be approximatley $130 million, a five-percent increase from the year before when it was $123 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The figure is higher than teams were expecting, which will provide some relief for cap-strapped organizations like the Saints, Steelers and Cowboys.


23. Kansas City Chiefs - DL Ra’Shede Hageman, Minn With Hageman, I see a player that can line up at any one of the spots in an odd man front. He has played a lot of one technique this season, and has contributed at three and five technique as well. His athleticism will be on display at the Combine. That great workout could mean his future is projected as an end in a three man line, but I prefer him close to the center. Finding consistency is the key.

$6.8 million over?

Kansas City Chiefs (68, $6.8 million over): The Chiefs have no dead money tied up in Alex Smith, so they can do a deal with him to get back to at least even in the salary cap. They also have a few solid young players, like Eric Berry and Tamba Hali, with whom they could convert salary to signing bonus and make cap space.

Poor Cowboys

Jason’s up-to-date estimates have Dallas at $24,614,943 over the 2014 projected cap. And because of the Cowboys’ past moves, the only way that they’ll get under this figure in time for the 2014 league year is by exposing themselves to even greater cap problems in the future.

Awesome read on staying warm in the NFL

He told me to go into the training room and spray my hands and feet with Tough Actin' Tinactin and then wear sterile rubber gloves underneath my football gloves. Those two tips along with my pregame warmup made a substantial difference. We also had the hot chicken soup broth on the sideline throughout the game which not only kept you hydrated due to the sodium content, but also kept you warm. Not to mention it also tasted pretty darn good, too!

Confirmed, Walter hates us

Walters record vs the spread on Chiefs 4-10

VEGAS RECAP: There were three massively bet games last week (Vikings, 49ers, Chiefs). Vegas won just one of them (Minnesota), so this was a losing week for the books. It was strange - crooked official Clete Blakeman was the ref in the Kansas City-Oakland game, yet he didn't make sure the Raiders covered. As my LVH Supercontest partner Matvei joked via text, Blakeman is off our Christmas list for not calling shady holding penalties throughout the entire afternoon.

Not looking good for Indy

Though Smith is known as a game manager, it is somewhat unfair to call Smith a total game manager. He is capable of attempting to pass the ball deep. In week 13 against the Broncos, Smith attempted 9 passes over 20 yards.

The Colts will have a tough time against the defensive line of the Chiefs, all three starters grade above +13.5 in run defense, capped off with the play of Mike Devito, who is currently the fourth-highest graded 3-4 DE.

The starting cornerbacks for the Chiefs will be Brandon Flowers and Sean Smith, with Marcus Cooper coming on when the Chiefs play their 2-3-6 personnel (Chiefs play 2-3-6, 46% of the time).
