1. Big expectations fit Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce well
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"His success last season might have caught a lot of people by surprise, but not Travis Kelce. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end was a revelation to everyone but the Chiefs, who drafted him in the third round in 2013, and himself. Kelce has that kind of confidence in his ability.
The expectations this year on Kelce, inside the Chiefs' practice facility and out, are for more, a lot more than the 67 catches, 862 yards and five touchdowns he had last season. Anything short of the numbers posted annually by former Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez might be a disappointment.
To a lot of players, that kind of pressure might be a heavy weight to carry. But they fit Kelce well." READ MORE…

By Chris Bumbaca - Kansas City Star
"Two Chiefs second-year players, linebacker Dee Ford and offensive lineman Zach Fulton, both used their first full NFL offseason to reach the next level.
For Ford, he said he can now translate what he absorbs in meeting rooms into execution on the field, instead of simply regurgitating information.

5. Perseverance guides Holmes to graduation day
""They say the body goes where the eyes go. So for a running back, while agility and quickness are necessary qualities, vision might actually be the most important. Vision allows the running back to see the hole, identify the seam and pick out that opening in the secondary.
After all, everybody needs a target.
For Texas Longhorns standout Priest Holmes, targets turned into a Big 12 Championship, bowl game MVP honors, a Super Bowl ring and NFL records. And, 19 years after Holmes left the Forty Acres for a decorated professional career, the target turned into a college diploma." READ MORE…
