1. Chiefs rookie Steven Borden Jr. in long shadow of father — professional wrestling's "Sting"
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
"It's not unusual for fathers to cast a rather long shadow for their sons. That's a notion Steven Borden Jr., a tight end who is trying out for the Chiefs during their three-day rookie minicamp, is familiar with.
Borden is the son of Steven Borden Sr., a professional wrestling legend who is better known by his ring name of "Sting."
"People usually ask me does that bother you, does that upset you? It's never bothered me," Borden Jr. said Sunday. "It's actually been one of those things that has pushed me my entire life. You see what your dad has done, you want to beat him out."" READ MORE…

2. Former Hogan Prep Standout Gets Chance with the Chiefs
By BJ Kissel - KCChiefs.com
"Less than 10 miles separate Hogan Prep Academy and Arrowhead Stadium, but the path it took for former Pittsburg State cornerback De'Vante Bausby to land with his favorite childhood team took a little longer.
Bausby, a three-time All-State performer at Hogan Prep (2008-10), signed as a college free agent with the Chiefs following his four-year career with the Division II Pittsburg State Gorillas of the MIAA conference.
"Everybody is telling me 'Welcome to Chiefs Kingdom,'" Bausby said on Saturday morning. "But little do they know that I have been a member since I was born.
"It's an awesome feeling to be playing so close to friends and family. There's an excellent opportunity to play for the team I grew up loving."" READ MORE…
3. Rookie Sage Harold trying to make the Chiefs' roster at loaded position, outside linebacker
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
"Shortly after he arrived in Kansas City as a priority free agent, Chiefs rookie outside linebacker Sage Harold found himself in the middle of a practice field, working on his pass-rush hand fighting with Tamba Hali.
And as the 31-year-old veteran worked up a sweat, it made for an captivating experience, watching a man who had accomplished so much work so diligently at his craft.
"That was a very, very humbling experience," Harold said. "I was like 'Wow, this is what it takes to be great,. I definitely look at him as a legend of the game, especially coming from my era. Definitely, I just wanted to pick up some of the tools that he had."" READ MORE…
4. Chiefs invite interesting class of rookies to 3-day minicamp
By Dave Skretta - Associated Press
"There is a "Star Wars" expert running post patterns. The son of a pro wrestling great is learning the nuances of blocking. A cancer survivor is huddling with his position coaches.
Welcome to the most interesting rookie minicamp you'll ever find.
There are 69 players running around in shorts on the Kansas City Chiefs practice fields this weekend. Nine of them were drafted and are near-locks to make the team. More than a dozen signed as undrafted free agents. The rest are merely in town for a tryout, hoping to catch the eye of coach Andy Reid or one of his assistants in the few short hours they have together." READ MORE…
5. Former Chief Bobby Bell gets his biggest score yet: A college degree
By Vahe Gregorian - Kansas City Star
"Hours before punctuating his circuitous and defining adventure of graduating from the University of Minnesota by marching at commencement, Bobby Bell plopped back in a chair, cloaked in a cap and gown he refused to remove.
"He'll probably sleep in it tonight," Pamela Held, Bell's companion, said laughing.
The Chiefs legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer kept glancing at the gold Bulova watch on his left wrist — a gift bestowed in 1959 as he left Shelby, N.C., in pursuit of opportunity he couldn't have in the segregated South. When they parted that day, his father, Pink Lee Bell, said, "Hey, boy, come here."" READ MORE…
