1. Jamaal Charles gives a great speech at the Special Olympics
By Vincent Frank - Fox Sports
"At 10 years old, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles competed at the Special Olympics. Prior to that, he was diagnosed with a learning disorder.
Needless to say, this annual event is dear to his heart.
Speaking at the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics in Los Angeles on Saturday night, Charles gave a stirring speech about what the event did for him during his adolescence.
"I was afraid. I was lost. When I was a boy, I had trouble reading. I found out I had a learning disability. People made fun of me. They said I would never go anywhere. But I learned I can fly. When I was 10 years old, I had the chance to compete in the Special Olympics. That's right, the Special Olympics gave me my first chance to discover a talent I did not know I had."" READ MORE…

3. What should Chiefs do with remaining salary cap?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"Here is part II of this week's Kansas City Chiefs mailbag. To ask a question for a future edition, send it to me via Twitter (@adamteicher) and tag it #ChiefsMail.
Bleed Red & Gold @redngoldbleeder
@adamteicher how should we use the rest of our cap room? @EvanMathis69 or resign @SeanSMITH24 #Chiefsmail
Maybe the best thing for the Chiefs to do with their remaining salary cap space (about $8.6 million on Friday afternoon, according to the NFL Players Association) is to save it, for now at least. Let's see if they have any injuries during camp or the preseason. It makes more sense to spend that way than just burn through their money now. That sounds like what they would be doing if they signed guard Evan Mathis. I'm not certain he's better than what they have now at guard." READ MORE…
4. 2015 Kansas City Chiefs training camp preview
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"The Kansas City Chiefs open training camp Aug. 1 at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri. Here's a closer look at the Chiefs' camp, which wraps up Aug. 19:
Top storyline: The Chiefs must get more from the sluggish passing game. The pieces appear to be in place for the Chiefs to be more productive when they throw the ball. They added Jeremy Maclin, who not only provides the legitimate deep threat they lacked the past season but also is a wide receiver who runs well after the catch. Tight end Travis Kelce, after having a big debut season as a part-time player, was promoted to the starting lineup, so he should contribute even bigger numbers. But much also depends on improvements from the offensive line, which often didn't afford quarterback Alex Smith the time to throw deep passes the previous season, and Smith's willingness to go down the field with the ball."

5. Kansas City Chiefs 53-man roster projection
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"Projecting the starting lineup for the Kansas City Chiefs heading into training camp.
Quarterback (Alex Smith): Smith's stats last season (3,265 yards, 18 touchdowns) need to rise dramatically.
Running back (Jamaal Charles): His numbers dipped last season because he was fighting one nagging injury after another.
Fullback (Anthony Sherman): He does a solid job as a lead blocker and on special teams." READ MORE…
