The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the deal. "The one thing that I'd love to be able to do is throw fastballs at the offense. He allows you to do that. He's got to come in here and work and do the things he needs to do, obviously, but when you get him in that mix with that crew, you keep them fresh throughout the game and throughout the season. I think that could be a little plus."
NFL rookies have a tough gig. Robinson was a standout receiver while in the swamp, and the Chiefs are needing that type of player on their offense. As for the rest of the guys on the roster, it'd be surprising if they made huge impacts during their rookie season.
McCarthy noted, however, that Hill could be subject to discipline by commissioner Roger Goodell and considered a repeat offender if another incident occurs, as outlined by the policy -- which applies to all rookie players, whether they were selected in the draft or signed as undrafted free agents.
Terez Paylor, Chiefs beat reporter, has identified 10 players the team should be targeting with its first pick in the NFL draft Thursday, which is 28th overall. Alex Smith, talked to the media recently to discuss the running backs, coaching staff, quarterbacks and the 2016 schedule for the Chiefs.
"Everybody was just kind of fingerwagging and trying to be the most outraged about domestic violence,'' said Parkins, who with Harrison is a co-host of a weekday afternoon sports talk show on KCSP. The drafting of Hill has been a hot topic in Kansas City and on the radio talk shows.
With the 2016 Draft over, it's time to look forward to the season. De'Anthony Thomas is a weapon on the field, but his spot could be used for a receiver that can produce on a regular basis. A possible trade could be in the cards, maybe not with San Francisco, but with a team that could give the KC Chiefs a player that could make an immediate impact.
Mike Williams is more accomplished than any of the Kansas City Chiefs ' wide receivers other than Jeremy Maclin . It's going to take a while." Williams will join a group of veteran receivers looking to join Maclin in the lineup. Albert Wilson , Chris Conley and Rod Streater are among them. "He understands you don't get a lot of chances in the National Football League,'' coach Andy Reid said. "He understands how sensitive this league can be at times and that you better keep your nose clean or you're not going to be in it very long.
Wilson's release, which comes just one month after he signed, is a bit of a surprise since he was made available to the media during a conference call following his signing. In 13 games and six starts with the Chargers last year, he recorded 44 tackles, two pass deflections and an interception.
"My prosecutor met with her and her family on multiple occasions," wrote Laura Thomas, district attorney for Payne County, Okla., in an email to The Star on Tuesday. After Hill was drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round on Saturday, he expressed regret and said he was trying to move on and be a better young man.
Aaron Murray , Tyler Bray and Kevin Hogan combined to pass for 265 touchdowns and almost 30,000 yards in college. The Chiefs added Hogan from Stanford in the fifth round this year. I'm not going to tell you he's the top of the line, and I'm not going to tell you he's the bottom of the line.
Brett Gilliland said his first reaction was "no" when he saw a Stillwater Police incident report that detailed the night Hill was accused of punching and choking his then-pregnant girlfriend. "As you get to know the kid," Gilliland said, "get to know the people behind the kid, we started coming around to 'Hey, there's more to this.'"
The Chiefs had until Monday to execute the option, which should approach $12 million for 2017. And against the Texans in the playoffs, he was caught delivering a shot to an on-his-knees J.J. Watt that caused the imposing Watt to leave the game. When Fisher was shown on the Jumbotron at Reliant Stadium after the play, the Texans' crowd booed and hissed.
