Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe says he’s in the best shape of his life

Excerpt from The Kansas City Star

“At 29 years old, Dwayne Bowe is not getting any younger.

And after a season like 2013, when he approached career lows with 57 catches, 673 yards and five touchdowns, it might be tempting to give up hope that he’ll ever live up to his five‐year, $56 million contract…” READ MORE…

Chiefs’ top pick Dee Ford focused on keeping a level head

Excerpt from The Kansas City Star

“When veteran inside linebacker Joe Mays was recently asked about first‐round draft pick Dee Ford, he did what other Chiefs have also done in the same situation — praised the young pass rusher by comparing him to a highly‐ accomplished star.

‘That guy is explosive,’ said Mays, a seventh‐year pro. ‘He’s quick off the ball. He kind of reminds me of Von Miller with the way that he gets off the ball and gets around the offensive linemen.’…” READ MORE…

Observations from Chiefs’ OTA practice No. 9: Weston Dressler makes big play, gets injured

Excerpt from The Kansas City Star

“Here are some observations from practice No. 9 of the Chiefs’ organized team activities:

Weston Dressler injures hamstring

Excerpt from ESPN.com

“KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Some observations from Kansas City Chiefs' practice:

Depth at slot receiver has been eroded. Weston Dressler was the latest casualty when he pulled up after a play and grabbed his left leg. Dressler injured his hamstring and didn't return to practice. He might not return before offseason practice concludes with next week's three-day mini-camp. Other top slot receiver candidates who haven't been working recently include Junior Hemingway (illness), Kyle Williams (rehabbing after last year's ACL surgery) and rookie De'Anthony Thomas (ineligible under NFL rules to begin practice until next week). Frankie Hammond Jr., who spent all of last season on the practice squad as an undrafted rookie, has been getting a lot of the work and making the most of it…” READ MORE…
