Chiefs Dump Former #1 Draft Pick OT Eric Fisher

The Chiefs 2021 offseason purge of their roster began Thursday, as the team has parted ways with former first-round, first-overall pick tackle Eric Fisher.

Fisher, who didn’t appear in the Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he tore his Achilles in the AFC Title win over the Bills, played in 15 regular season games for the Chiefs in 2020, and played in the team’s AFC Divisional win over the Cleveland Browns.

The release comes as somewhat of a surprise, but overall it’s a huge money saver for the Chiefs as they will save roughly $12 million against their salary cap.

Fisher was the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft and has been a fixture at left tackle for Kansas City over the past eight seasons.

He’s played in 117 games since he was drafted first overall, starting in 113 of those 117 games.

Five-Year-Old Injured in Britt Reid Crash Likely Has Permanent Brain Damage Says Attorney

The attorney for five-year-old Ariel Young is speaking out, stating that the youngster likely has permanent brain damage after the crash involving Chiefs assistant coach at the time Britt Reid.

The attorney for Ariel Young spoke on out an interview Tuesday on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ stating the young girl cannot walk and isn’t able to speak.

Attorney Tom Porto said the event with Reid was ‘life altering.’

“This wasn’t a fender bender,” Porto said. “This was a serious life-altering event.

“She’s awake, which is a huge development she likely has permanent brain damage that she will endure for the rest of her life. She’s not walking — it’s a sad, sad, sad story.”

The car crash took place when the Chiefs were leaving for the Super Bowl against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in early February.

Ariel had been in a Chevrolet Traverse on the side of the highway when it was struck by Reid near the Chiefs practice facility at about 9 p.m. on February 4th authorities said.

Her mom, aunt, and 4-year-old cousin had pulled over to the side of a highway to help a 19-year-old family member whose car had run out of gas.

As far as charges go, Porto stated that the family is going to push for maximum charges.

“We’re going to be advocating for the most serious charges and the most serious sentence that Britt could ever receive,” Porto said.

“We don’t have the toxicology back, I don’t know what it is going to be. What I do know are the statements that he made to police that night. If you have two or three drinks, and then you get behind the wheel of a car, you are likely over the legal limit.”

The Chiefs didn’t give Britt a new contract and currently is not a part of the team.

Reid reportedly told police that he’d had between two and three drinks and taken the prescription drug Adderall.

Super Bowl Blowout; Chiefs Handed 31-9 Loss in Super Bowl LV by Tampa Bay

It was not pretty.

From the start of Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs high-powered offense which had dominated so many games over the past three seasons simply didn’t look like themselves, and in the end it was the Bucs who made them pay using a dominating defense for a 31-9 win in Super Bowl LV.

There was no comeback from a double-digit deficit like there was in three postseason games a year ago, this time around it was the Chiefs getting a taste of their own medicine, as the Bucs pass rush forced Pat Mahomes to run for his life an amazing 52 percent of his drop backs.

Forget about the penalties that killed Kansas City all night long – from offsides, unnecessary roughness, unsportsmanlike conduct, pass interference and a number of holding penalties.

It was simply tough to watch, and if you’ve watched this Chiefs team at all over the last three seasons as they’ve dominated the NFL, it was a stunner.

Maybe they had it coming. Playing from behind in the NFL is a quick way to find yourself taking a number of “L’s” instead of “W’s” and the Chiefs it seemed like wanted to test themselves allowing themselves to fall behind to the underdog Bucs.

Tampa’s defense though was just too good, and in the end it was a hard pill to swallow that the Chiefs on this night just were not good enough.

QB Pat Mahomes to Have “Very Light Practice” To Begin Week of AFC Title Game

A report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network states that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will have a ‘very light practice’ today as the prep starts for the Super Bowl Champs against the Buffalo Bills.

The Chiefs remain a three-point favorite to win the AFC Title Game Sunday at 3pm at Arrowhead Stadium.

How Mahomes responds to today’s practice will go a long way in him playing Sunday against the Bills.

He was knocked out of Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Browns with about 7 minutes left in the third quarter when Browns linebacker Mack Wilson drove Mahomes’ head into the ground.

Chad Henne came in, and did enough to lead the Chiefs to a 22-17 win with a heads up run on third down late in the game, and a fourth down pass to Tyreek Hill to seal the win.

Here’s what Rapoport tweeted out about Mahomes and the week ahead to get ready for Sunday’s game.

“Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will have a very light practice today as part of his plan while in the NFL concussion protocol, source said. Could be listed as limited or DNP, but his work will ramp up during the week. Mahomes, who has no symptoms, will do some tolerance tests, too.”

The Chiefs have just one loss on their schedule thus far in 2020, and that loss came against the team they will play Sunday night in the Las Vegas Raiders.

Las Vegas enters the contest at 6-3, one of nine 6-3 teams in the NFL as they look to make a push for the postseason, while at 8-1 the Chiefs can’t afford another slip up.

Here’s the official game preview from NFL.com.
