KC Chiefs News: Player Roles and Upcoming Season


KC Chiefs news lately surrounds the upcoming season and what type of roles other players on the team can play. 

The KC Chiefs have a talented roster headed into the 2015 season, there’s no doubt about that. The team can hopefully find roles for some of the players with question marks next to their names in order to push this team from good to great and to playoff worthy.

Some of the players that don’t have a set role yet are guys like Dee Ford and De’Anthony Thomas, both of whom have been the topic of conversation around the web. Both were 2014 draft picks: Ford in the first round (23rd overall) and Thomas in the fourth round.

Here’s what’s going on around Fansided.com.

"The key for the Chiefs with Ford is to get him on to the field in as many pass rushing situations as possible. If that means moving him inside to rush the passer while Houston and Hali rush from the outside, so be it. That trio has the potential to be absolutely dominating for the Chiefs."

"Going forward, I would like to see the Chiefs get Thomas more involved with the offense. He clearly has a special skill-set that will allow for some explosive plays if given enough opportunity. The jet sweeps are potentially dangerous plays, and there are many fakes that they could use to make Thomas a decoy as well."

"Looking at the roster, it is apparent that Kansas City is not only deep, but loaded with stars at multiple positions. The Chiefs have ample talent on both sides of the ball, a stark difference from only three years ago."

"The Chiefs may not necessarily be looking at each of these players exclusively as a center. They list each of these players as a center on their roster but we know that the Chiefs don’t have a problem moving players around."

"Before Cook joined the Chiefs as a priority free agent, before he caught 21 touchdowns in 33 games at Gardner-Webb (N.C.) University, Cook stared down Hodgkin lymphoma — Berry was diagnosed with the same cancer of the immune system last fall — and got that bad boy to blink first."
