"The Chiefs had heavy turnover at wide receiver, where they lost Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins, among others. They return 51 percent of their wide receiver snaps, the NFL's second-lowest percentage behind the Miami Dolphins.

The Chiefs also went through some upheaval on the offensive line, where Rodney Hudson, Ryan Harris and Mike McGlynn have moved on. Only 45 percent of the offensive line snaps return, second lowest to the St. Louis Rams."    READ MORE…

2. Dee Ford could wind up as one of 2014's best draft picks

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

""Last year he didn't have an offseason," Chiefs linebackers coach Gary Gibbs said. "He was traveling, doing a variety of interviews (preparing for the draft) and so forth, and then he got drafted, got thrust into (offseason practice) without having any kind of background of what we're doing.

"Now he's got a complete offseason behind him, he's had a good offseason. He's worked hard in the weight room. He's bigger, stronger and this is a good experience for him as far as establishing a really good foundation as far as our system, our scheme and he's competing well for us.""    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs' Kush, Morse are more like brothers (in arms) than competitors

By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City

""I think it's really kind of exciting, because each day, you really don't know what's going to happen," Morse said. "For now, it seems like they're just trying to mix you in wherever, try to put you in situations where you can go and see how you compete.

"Tuesday, guard. Wednesday, a little center. Thursday, more guard. The Chiefs start their final -- and longest -- stretch of organized team activities Tuesday, a non-contact preamble to the full-squad minicamp June 16-18. And a fortnight or so into spring practices, one of the most anticipated "battles" of the preseason -- Morse, the kid, versus Kush, the former backup, for the starting center spot -- has yet to pick up a whole hell of a lot of steam.

"Year 3 feels great," said Kush, who spent his first two NFL seasons backing up the now-departed Rodney Hudson. "It felt great before, but Year 3, it's the third time doing this thing -- everything just seems smooth as butter to you.""    READ MORE…

4. DeVante Bausby's Connection to Chiefs Kingdom Runs Deep

By BJ Kissel - KCChiefs.com

"It sounds like a movie script. A kid that grew up in the shadows of the building that housed his childhood heroes in Will Shields, Tony Gonzalez and other former Chiefs greats is now calling that same place his office—the place he drives to work every day and puts on the same jersey of those he grew up idolizing.

But the story goes much deeper than that for how Bausby and the Chiefs organization have been connected, dating all the way back to the days of his childhood."    READ MORE…

5. Joe Flacco believes he can play into his 40s

By Jamison Hensley - ESPN

"Even though Joe Flacco has yet to throw a regular-season pass as a 30-year-old quarterback, he can envision himself doing so as a 40-year-old one.

"I don't feel any worse because of my age yet," Flacco said after a recent organized team activity. "I'm not going to be 50 [years old] and playing. I hope I'm 40, but 50, no.""    READ MORE…
