No word yet on any roster cuts yet alone the 53 man roster, but some related news nonetheless.

The Chiefs have traded UDFA CB Mark Fields to the Vikings. No word yet on compensation, but getting anything out of a UDFA is almost universally a good thing.

EDIT: Conditional 2021 7th round pick, probably based on being on the roster through 2019 or a certain number of weeks.

Talking to some J.A.G.s fans online (both of them) really makes me want to bring back my "Why the Chiefs Will Win" blogs from years back. Instead I'll just share a couple smack talking tidbits.

Shit Jaguars Fans Say:

1. Foles is better than Bortles, therefore Chiefs will lose.

A common theme from Jacksonville douches is that all of their ills land on Blake Bortles. Don't get me wrong, Bortles is a significant anchor to help bring any boat underwater, but they're ignoring a lot of other holes. They were never on the cusp of being competitive last year. The Chiefs were ahead 23-0 before Jacksonville showed any life. ESPN calculated it as an 87.1% win probability for the Chiefs at the start of the 2nd quarter. Even with a lucky onside kick recovery 30-14 and a mountain of pure gahbage stats to make it look closer was the best they could do.

Also, you aren't asking Foles to helm a confident team already well on its way to the playoffs. You're asking Foles to resuscitate a broken team that was in open revolt with itself. At the first sign of adversity, that defense will be thinking "not this shit again!"

And above all, the only math that matters is Mahomes > Foles. That is obvious.

2. Jags Defense was just tired. They are elite!

Yes, they are elite. Also, it doesn't matter because our offense is in the All-Time neighborhood. Their defense wasn't tired on drive 1, but that didn't stop the Chiefs from having a 10 play, 73 yard TD drive to open the game. Next Chiefs drive was 14 plays, 82 yards and a FG. Chiefs already established from moment one they could basically do what they wanted to the Jags. Bortles didn't have a single turnover yet.

Also, the Jaguars actually ran far more plays, 83 vs. 69 (nice!) for the Chiefs. So the "tired defense" excuse is both tired itself and nonsensical. What's stopping the Chiefs from just killing nearly 12 minutes of clock in the first 2 drives again? The same defense minus a couple key players?

3. Jalen Ramsey is going to shut down Tyreek!
Ramsey didn't cover Hill all game like he supposedly will this time, but he actually did pretty well being honest, save for one big play. Ramsey was sucking wind by the 3rd quarter, so his ass was there to be had if we needed it late like a closing time booty call, but we had already ran roughshod over them. Can you really brag about shutting down one receiver whenever you give up 313 yards passing in basically 3 quarters?

That's the whole point of our offense. It's pick your poison, so unless you're immune to iocane powder you're screwed. You can't cover Hill AND Kelce AND Watkins AND so on...

So, screw off Jags fans. Also, I hate to break this to you, the NFL doesn't like you well enough to do any favors to make it easier on you if a hurricane comes your way. You'll get screwed because as far as they're concerned you'll be the London Blackknights within 5 years.

This will hopefully keep me from hijacking other threads to talk about this shit.

Anyway, drafting 10th in my rookie dynasty draft--Mike Singletary or Justice Hill?  I already have Lamar Jackson (backup to Mahomes) and Gus Edwards (Maybe backup to Mark Ingram), so there's some wisdom in grabbing Hill, I guess, but I think I like Singeltary's situation (McCoy--candidate to be a cap casualty--and Frank Gore ahead of him) better than Hill's.

So i didnt watch the game but I saw a clip of the first pass by mahomes where it just lands perfectly in kelces hands right out in front of a defender. Mahomes could have walked off the field immediately after that and everyone would have still been put on alert that hes coming back for another mvp.

Sorry, didn’t see a training camp thread yet, so thought I’d start one, because today did effectively end the offseason, right?

Anyone go today?  I heard that Tyreek got a huge cheer from the crowd.  Anyway, keep me up to date on camp, I rely on you all to give me the updates.

On account of the cover athlete, you may have heard of him, this is the first time I'll buy Madden at launch in years.

They actually have some significant changes to how they're handling players by adding special abilities, making them more unique than just their numbers. For instance, Mahomes alone has a "Bazooka" ability that increases his throwing range by 15 yards if certain conditions are met (complete a pass of 30+ yards in the air).

Only 50 players have any of the special abilities at the start of the game. I'm hoping you can unlock abilities for players by spending XP in franchise mode.

Here's a link to the player ratings for the Chiefs.

Mahomes did not get a 99 rating (only 4 players did: Donald, Mack, Wagner, Hopkins), but he is the highest rated QB at 97. Brady is 96, Rivers is 94, Brees is 92 (I think they got those 2 backwards personally), Luck is 92, Wilson is 91, Rodgers is 90.

Kelce is the highest rated TE at 96. Ertz is 93, Delanie Walker is 92, Kittle is 90.

Hill is the 6th highest rated WR at 94. Hopkins is 99, Antonio Brown is 98, Julio is 98, OBJ is 96, Michael Thomas is 95, Thielen is also 94. Hill has 99 speed, 99 accel. No one else has above 97 speed or above 96 accel at any position, and the fastest CB is 95 speed, so burn away.

Watkins is rated 82 overall. Mecole Hardman is rated 70, but with 95 speed. 4 of the Chiefs top 5 wideouts have 90+ speed, so that will be pretty good for anyone that plays online.

Mitch Schwartz is the top rated RT at 93, 4 ahead of his nearest competition. The rest of our line is 78 or lower. I get why people trash on him, but I think Fisher is better than a 74 and LDTMD is better than 78. The others I understand, they're unproven.

Chris Jones is the 6th highest rated DT at 89. Fletcher Cox is 96, Damon Harrison is 95, Michael Pierce is 92, Geno Atkins is 91, Kenny Clark is 90.

Mathieu is the 6th highest rated SS at 87. Harrison Smith is 94, Malcom Jenkins is 92, Jamal Adams is 90, Keanu Neal is 89, Adrian Amos is also 87.

Fuller is a respectable 87 at CB. Breeland is 74. The rest of our corners are 67 or lower... ouch. Guess I know one place to look for FA help at the start.

Frank Clark is woefully low at 83. For comparison Dee Ford (84) is rated higher. That's ridiculous. I wasn't in favor of the trade to start with, but even then I'd have acknowledged Clark was a better and far more complete player than Ford. So, there's a candidate for growth as the year goes on I guess as our defense hopefully surprises the pundits.

Damien Williams is rated at 80, with 90 speed, that should be good enough to be effective. Carlos Hyde is 76. Darwin Thompson is low even for a rookie at 65 and an okayish 88 speed. Darrel Williams is a weak 63 with a grandma-esque 83 speed, making him worse than Boobie Williams who already got cut from the team IRL.

Nothing else really worth mentioning. The bottom half of the roster is pretty abysmal, but that's true for basically every team and half the fun of these games is building the roster over a couple years.

Here's an awesome new inside look show produced by the Chiefs in the same general vein as Hard Knocks and All or Nothing. Excellent production value, this could be something really cool.

Episode 1 premiered tonight on Fox Sports KC, and I'm not certain when / how often replays are but it's also available online both at YouTube and the Chiefs website.

Endgame spoilers here.  We have much to discuss.
