1. Who answers Chiefs' call for a No. 2 WR?

By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City

"At one point Tuesday, Albert Wilson cut on a post route, high-pointed the ball in the clouds, snatched, tucked and kept on trucking. A while later, there was Chris Conley, off in a corner, snatching with one hand tiny little tennis balls fired out of a tiny little cannon at short range before they could hit the Earth, always adjusting, always anticipating.

"It's just something you've got to feel," Wilson said. "When you go out there, you've just got to know (that) nobody's perfect. And if you do something wrong, you do it at full speed. When you're coachable, you can go out there and try not to make mistakes, but making mistakes, you can learn from it and bounce back from it, make mistakes and you can go up.""    READ MORE…

Day Four of OTA Practices

A look at OTA's on Tuesday at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Facility.

2. Alex Smith targets footwork, throwing motion, decision-making

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Like every NFL quarterback, Alex Smith is trying to get better this time of year. But he's not just trying to make general improvement.

Smith has targeted three specific areas that he's trying to make gains as the Kansas City Chiefs continue their offseason practices. In no particular order, they are:

Footwork: Smith completed 65 percent of his passes last year, 10th in the league. He said he believes better attention to detail in this area could put him among the leaders in this stat. Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys was No. 1 at almost 70 percent."    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs OTA Observations 6/2: Day Four

By BJ Kissel - KCChiefs.com

"Top plays from Tuesday's practice Early in 7-on-7 work, cornerback Marcus Cooper had a great pass breakup down the field on a pass intended for Jason Avant. Cooper extended up with one hand as he left his feet to get a hand on the ball.

On a couple of occasions during practice on Tuesday, Alex Smith and Jeremy Maclin hooked up for a nice throw-and-catch down the field. On one play in particular, Smith found Maclin on a deep post and the ball was placed perfectly into a window between three defenders.

Cornerback Sean Smith had another interception on Tuesday and after practice, he said that turnovers are something the defensive players have been preaching to each other all offseason. Smith made a nice play on the ball on an attempted out route to Albert Wilson.

Smith beat Wilson to the outside and dove to make the catch, which Alex Smith jokingly told Sean Smith after practice was trapped. Sean obviously disagreed, but there was no replay on the non-existent jumbotron."    READ MORE…

4. Sean Smith playing like No. 1 corner during Chiefs' OTAs

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"Jeremy Maclin already had a head of steam, eating up yards in bunches, when he smoothly, sharply, broke to the middle of the field at a 45-degree angle.

This was last week during the third practice of the Chiefs' organized team activities. Maclin was running a post route, he had a step on the cornerback, and quarterback Alex Smith lofted the ball. One couldn't help but think it was exactly the kind of scenario the team's front office was dreaming of when it signed Maclin to a five-year, $55 million contract this offseason.

There was a problem, however — one big 6-foot-3 problem. Sean Smith, the Chiefs' lanky No. 1 cover man, was the cornerback matched up on Maclin, and he can track the ball, too. He turned on the jets, beat Maclin to the spot down the field, and plucked the ball out of the air.

5. Adrian Peterson: 'I really didn't know what I wanted'

By Gregg Rosenthal - NFL.com

"This should not come as a surprise, but the Minnesota Vikings could not be more thrilled to see Adrian Peterson back on the field. And Peterson was emotional about returning to the team.

"This past year has been emotional for both parties involved," Peterson said when he addressed the media Tuesday. "I've learned a lot from my mistake and I'm moving forward. I'm focused on what's in front of me."

Peterson admitted there were days in which he wasn't sure he'd ever be back with the Vikings. Or back in the NFL at all."    READ MORE…
