"No. 5 - Arrowhead Stadium

Five years ago, one of the NFL's oldest stadiums completed a $375 million facelift, preserving a building that first opened in 1972. The seating bowl, featuring some of the league's best sightlines, was left untouched. The same held true for the iconic arrowhead-shaped video boards in both end zones.

By Blair Kerkhoff - Kansas City Star

"With Jeremy Maclin out for a second day because of a neck injury, receiver Frankie Hammond Jr. got first-team reps during training camp on Tuesday and made the most of them, Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said.

"I think you're beginning to see the gains and strides from his hard work out here on the field," Pederson said. "He's put himself in a really good position to play quite a bit for us on offense. He's a great special teams contributor."

Hammond has added five pounds to his frame since last season — he's now listed at 184 pounds — and that's made a difference."    READ MORE…

"His fortunes changed, however, within a matter of four days at the suggestion of a loved one.

The Chiefs contacted Drake Thursday, worked him out Friday, signed him to a free-agent contract Saturday, and then had him on the practice field Sunday."    READ MORE…
