By Timothy Finn - Kansas City Star
"The Rolling Stones are no strangers to Arrowhead Stadium.
Tuesday morning, the hall‐of‐fame British rock band announced its 15‐stop North American summer tour, which will stop at Arrowhead on Saturday, June 27. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, April 13. American Express card holders can buy tickets beginning on Wednesday, April 8.
It will be the Stones' third performance at Arrowhead. The first was nearly 40 years ago, when their Tour of the Americas came to town on June 6, 1975. They returned 14 years later, when the Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour came to Arrowhead on Oct. 8, 1989." READ MORE…

By Agency France Presse - Wire
"Mexico striker Eduardo Herrera scored in the third minute to give "El Tri" a 1-0 victory over Paraguay on Tuesday in an international football friendly.
In the home stadium of American football's Kansas City Chiefs, the Mexico side won their second match of a US tour.
The Mexicans dispatched Ecuador 1-0 in Los Angeles last Saturday on a goal by Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, on loan from Manchester United to Real Madrid in the club campaigns." READ MORE…
3. No wide receiver for Chiefs in McShay's latest mock
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"ESPN analyst Todd McShay veered away from a wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs in his latest mock draft.
McShay instead gives the Chiefs a center, Cameron Erving of Florida State. This move would make a lot of sense for the Chiefs in more than one regard.
After signing Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent, the Chiefs no longer have to go wide receiver in the first round. Maclin is the Chiefs' No. 1 receiver for the foreseeable future, so the Chiefs are free to look to another position with their top pick. That's not to say a wide receiver would be a bad pick for the Chiefs with the 18th overall selection. They could still use some help at the position, but they can get it later in the draft."

4. Kansas City Chiefs don't plan to dump Derrick Johnson
By Marc Sessler - NFL.com
"Sitting just $2.8 million under the cap, the Kansas City Chiefs still have plenty of money to move around if they plan to sign their draft class.
Parting ways with Derrick Johnson, though, isn't in the cards. Team chairman Clark Hunt made it clear that the 32‐year‐old inside linebacker ‐‐ due $5.2 million in the final year of his contract ‐‐ is safe.
"Derrick is obviously one of the greatest inside linebackers to ever play for the club and there are some pretty good ones, if you go back in time," Hunt said, per The Kansas City Star. "In terms of the modern era of the Chiefs, it's hard to think about the club without thinking about Derrick at inside linebacker. He's a great leader, he's a tremendous person, represents the club well on and off the field. We're looking forward to having him back this year, hopefully good as new.
"You mentioned that his contract is up this year. There will be a point in time where we address that," he said. "But it just hasn't been germane to this point. " READ MORE…
5. Jameis Winston's pro-day workout draws mixed reviews
By Chase Goodbread - NFL.com
"Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston's pro-day workout Tuesday might not have added any question marks for NFL coaches and scouts about the potential No. 1 overall pick, but it didn't appear to answer any, either. Winston's private quarterback coach, George Whitfield, said before the workout that the 102-throw script would include its share of throws to show Winston's improvement in maintaining his balance while throwing on the run and with a simulated pass rush forcing him to adjust.
That part of the workout didn't go well.
"The frustrating thing watching it is, as a quarterback, you want to see him get into a rhythm," NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said during NFL Network's broadcast of FSU's pro day. "To me it looks like there's so much movement stuff they're trying to sell and show that Jameis hasn't been able to get comfortable and get in that rhythm."
Added analyst Kurt Warner: "Every time he's been on the move, he's been off a little bit. ... We've seen some throws (behind) receivers."" READ MORE…
