Chiefs Down Three Players

When the Kansas City Chiefs kick off the preseason tonight, they will be without three players. Tight ends Jake O’Connell and Tony Moeaki, as well as guard Darryl Harris will be held out, the team announced 90 minutes prior to kickoff.  None of the three made the trip to Atlanta with the team. Both Moeaki […]

Moeaki Earns Haley’s Praise; Bitten By Injury Bug

(Photo via David Eulitt) When SI’s Don Banks visited Chiefs training camp, much of his focus was on an impressive Kansas City rookie class.  One that stood out — third-round TE Tony Moeaki — fell in the draft due to being injury prone and then promptly left Saturday’s scrimmage with an ankle injury.  Before the […]

SI Impressed With Chiefs Draft Class

After visiting St. Joseph this weekend to see the Kansas City Chiefs training camp scrimmage, SI’s Don Banks is on board with the 2010 draft class as a “foundation-type” group. It’s August, but I think Berry, McCluster, Arenas and Moeaki are going to show up, get on the field, and produce right away in 2010, […]

Chiefs Sign Another Draft Pick

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed third-round pick Tony Moeaki, making him the third member of their 2010 draft class to come to terms. On Tuesday, fifth-round pick Cameron Sheffield went under contract and earlier, on June 29th, fellow fifth-rounder Kendrick Lewis made his signing official.  Moeaki’s signing leaves the Chiefs with its four highest […]

It seems like an eternity until we get to see real football again.  But I was reminded yesterday that it’s actually a lot closer than it feels. I had a message on my phone from a friend: “Make sure you sign up for our football league.” “What’s the rush?” I thought.  The draft can’t be […]

Rookie Tony Moeaki Ready For Training Camp

When the Chiefs take the field in a little over a month in St. Joseph for training camp, they will have seven draft picks looking to get as many reps as possible.  One of them — tight end Tony Moeaki — told Adam Teicher he knows how important the pad-free workouts were for the rookies […]

Kolby Smith Wasn’t The Only Notable Cut

The Kansas City Chiefs waived six players yesterday, notable among them was RB Kolby Smith.  But Bob Gretz was surprised by one of the lesser known players given walking papers. TE Leroy Banks – and his release was a bit of a surprise.  There’s no question a log jam exists at the tight end position; […]

The Tight End Situation

The Kansas City Chiefs are just about at the halfway point for their offseason workouts with their first mandatory mini-camp on the schedule for next weekend.  Bob Gretz has taken a look at the team’s progress to this point at every position, including the wide open competition at tight end thanks to injuries to Brad […]

Brad Cottam Still On The Sidelines

The battle to be the starting tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs is likely to last deep into training camp.  The biggest question remains, will Brad Cottam be a part of that competition?  Kent Babb caught up with Cottam after another session the Volunteer was forced to sit out due to a neck injury […]

Tony Moeaki Impresses At Rookie Mini-Camp

There isn’t much you can take from a three day rookie mini-camp, but there was one player that seemed to impress the most and his name isn’t Berry.  Both Bob Gretz and The Star’s Adam Teicher took note of third-round pick Tony Moeaki. Gretz [I]f he can stay healthy, the Chiefs may have found something […]
