1. Eric Fisher: 'I'm in the best shape I've ever been in my life'
By Nick Toney - Fox Sports Kansas City
"The Central Michigan product said he struggled to stay in shape in 2014. He went under the knife before last season started and couldn't lift weights to maintain his weight. Then, when the season started, he packed on the pounds.
How'd he get back in shape this offseason? By stepping in the boxing ring.
"I've really never boxed before," Fisher said, "but I know my punch is one of the things I really needed to develop this offseason."" READ MORE…

3. What would Chiefs do with first pick in the draft?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"For those with ESPN Insider access, Jeff Legwold has an interesting look at what each NFL team might do if it had the No. 1 overall pick.
He supposes the Kansas City Chiefs would take USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams instead of his second choice for them, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
I suspect Legwold has the two top choices for the Chiefs. Williams could be the best defensive line prospect to come along in a few years.

4. Dion Jordan suspended for 2015 season for violating NFL substance abuse policy
By Adam Schefter - ESPN
"Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan, the third overall pick in the 2013 draft, has been suspended without pay for the entire 2015 season following another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Although Jordan did not fail a drug test, per sources, the league determined that one of his test samples was diluted, which in this case counts as a violation. Jordan will not appeal and will accept his one-year punishment, his third suspension within the past year.
"We were disappointed to learn about Dion Jordan's most recent suspension for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse," the Dolphins said in a statement. "A player's health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. We have made every effort to support Dion, both on and off the field and we will continue to do so to the extent allowable under NFL guidelines."" READ MORE…
