1. Chiefs fan approaches cancer treatment with a game plan

By Sam Mellinger - Kansas City Star

"Home games are like vacation days for the Webers. They leave by 6:30 in the morning, stop for coffee, and get to Arrowhead before the gates open. Jim grills breakfast, then lunch. Then they go inside and scream for the Chiefs. This is a very Kansas City way of life they have.

Jim's favorite player is Dustin Colquitt, the punter. Jim likes that no matter what, playoff game or 2-14 season, Colquitt brings it every week. Never an offday. Always goes hard. That's taken on a different sort of meaning for Jim ever since the diagnosis.

The diagnosis. It's multiple myeloma, an incurable form of cancer that chokes off the body's ability to create blood cells, and eventually eats away at the bone. So, now the Chiefs and the diagnosis are big parts of the Webers' lives."    READ MORE…

2. Adding Jeremy Maclin, Ben Grubbs gives Chiefs above-average offseason grade

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"With offseason workouts and minicamps in the rearview mirror and training camps a few weeks away, we assess the Kansas City Chiefs' offseason moves.

Best move: The Chiefs had a desperate need for a big-play wide receiver and appear to have found the perfect fit in veteran free agent Jeremy Maclin. The Chiefs don't have to wonder if Maclin will fit into their offensive system. He played for Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles early in his career, so he should be able to immediately produce for the Chiefs."    READ MORE…

3. Rolling Stones, at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, aren't mailing it in on Zip Code Tour

By Timothy Finn - Kansas City Star

"The Rolling Stones haven't performed in Kansas City since their show at Kemper Arena on April 6, 1999, a span of 16 years and 82 days.

Saturday night, they will perform at Arrowhead Stadium.

If Saturday is their Kansas City swan song, it seems as though fans will get a memorable one. Reviews of shows on this leg of the Zip Code Tour have been generally positive.

From a review of a recent show in Columbus, Ohio: "Jagger's spins and rockified two-step have all the same verve and vigor they had when he was 17 instead of 71.""    READ MORE…

4. There's more to Chiefs WR Chris Conley than being 'Star Wars Guy'

By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City

"Although, let's be clear: Conley would like everybody to know that, look, there's more to him than just a pretty film. Even if that film deals with Star Wars. And even though it is, in the most Chris Farley voice we can possibly muster in all caps, AWESOME.

"There have been a lot of small, niche publications that have reached out and I've spoken to," the Kansas City Chiefs' first-year wide receiver said earlier this month. "It's ranged from everything from (small) films and sci-fi groups to the NCAA governing body publication, and stuff like that.

"And it's been all over the place. Thankfully, right now, I don't have to talk to too many of those people anymore.""    READ MORE…

5. Top 10 things we learned from OTAs

By John Clayton - ESPN

"Minicamps and organized team activities concluded late last week in the NFL, allowing an entire league of players the opportunity to scatter around the country for vacation and rest.

In most cases, the work players were asked to do during practices wasn't all that physically strenuous, as the players negotiated for minimal contact in offseason work (and less practice time overall) during their 2011 collective bargaining agreement with owners.

As a result of there being less contact, coaches had to stress the mental parts of the game over the physical, meaning that time spent in meeting rooms learning schemes was just as important was work being done on the field."    READ MORE…
