1. Healthy Hali and development of Ford have Chiefs excited about their 2015 pass rush
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
""My situational football (has improved), definitely, certain situations that I didn't quite understand," Ford said. "I could spit it out to you, but once the bullets were flying, it was different. But now that I have seen them ample amount of times and I've studied, it's coming to me."
In regards to the latter, Ford is optimistic that all the work he put in this offseason will pay off when the pads come on in July.
"I spent more time this year doing football things," Ford said. "Last year, it was the (scouting) combine, pro day, private workouts, visits; it wasn't the same. Then I came into trying to learn a new position. I didn't have that luxury that I have this year."" READ MORE…

2. Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, 28, wants to play for six more years
By John Breech - CBS Sports
"When the 2015 NFL season comes to an end, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles will be 29-years-old, which is practically retirement age in today's NFL for players at his position.
However, don't look for Charles to call it quits at the end of 2015 -- or for that matter, at the end of 2016, or even 2017. The Chiefs running back, who turns 29 in December, said this week that he thinks he can play until at least 2020, when he'd be 34-years-old.
"I want to play another six years," Charles told the Chiefs official website. "My form is to keep on taking my diet. I'm seeing guys at 37 or 38 still playing football in the trenches and that's somewhere where you don't want to play."" READ MORE…
3. Chiefs OTA Observations 5/28: Day Three Notes
By BJ Kissel - KCChiefs.com
"These guys were getting after it, and they were letting everyone within an earshot of the practice field know who won each rep. Whether it was one of five interceptions on the day by the defense, or one of the several great plays down the field by the offense, they were competing out there on Thursday.
"They're going back and forth which is good," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after practice. "You need the turnovers on the defensive side. You obviously don't want them on the offensive side, but we're getting good work in there where both sides are being effective.
"I like it. The guys have been challenging each other, which is beautiful. The offense makes a few plays, the defense makes a few plays and that's how you like it."" READ MORE…

By Phil Sheridan - ESPN
"The stage is set for Tim Tebow. If the former Heisman Trophy winner is going to earn a spot on the Philadelphia Eagles roster, he couldn't ask for better circumstances.
"I think about it as, what a blessing," Tebow said after Thursday's practice. "What a great opportunity. I work extremely hard every day, try to be the best teammate I can, the best player. Try to make everybody else around me better as well. All of us are just trying to improve."" READ MORE…
