 Latest Chiefs Player Notes
May 18 2017 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith said he can see the writing on the wall after the Kansas City Chiefs moved up to select Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes II in last month's draft. "I think (the Chiefs are) committed to me (only) through this year," Smith said on Wednesday, via ESPN. "That's just the nature of it. If you don't go out there and perform, I mean, coach (Andy) Reid and (quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy) are very honest. You've got to go out there and do your deal. We all have to. Whether or not we drafted Patrick, it doesn't change that, right? If you're not good enough and didn't get it done, you're not going to be around long. That's just our culture. I know it. That's the nature of the position." Kansas City traded away the 27th overall pick, its first-round selection in 2018 and a third-rounder this year to the Buffalo Bills in order to move up to 10th to take Mahomes.


May 15 2017 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes II, the Kansas City Chiefs' top pick in last month's NFL Draft, was uninjured after being robbed at gunpoint in Texas. Mahomes, the former Texas Tech quarterback selected 10th overall after the Chiefs traded up in the first round, was back in his hometown of Tyler, Texas, when he was robbed on Friday night, according to the Smith County Sheriff's office. Deputies were dispatched at about 9:15 p.m. to a residence when they found Mahomes and three others who said they had been robbed by a man acting like he was armed with a gun.


May 10 2017 - Andrew Tiller
  OG Andrew Tiller signed a free agent contract with the Chiefs. Tiller, 28, started seven games for the 49ers in each of the last two seasons before becoming an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round pick of the Saints in 2012 out of Syracuse and joined the 49ers' practice squad in 2014 before getting a chance to start in 2015.


May 1 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford's fifth-year contract option was picked up for the 2018 season. Ford, 26, was the team's first-round pick (23rd overall) in 2014. Ford's option is projected to be worth $8.718 million for the 2018 season. The fifth-year's salary is only guaranteed against injury. He had a breakout season in 2016, recording a team-leading 10 sacks.


Mar 15 2017 - Bennie Logan
  DT Bennie Logan and the Chiefs agreed to a one-year contract on Tuesday. Logan's deal is worth $8 million with $7.68 million guaranteed, according to the NFL Network. Logan, 27, started 51 games for the Eagles over the past four years. He had 24 tackles and 2 1/2 sacks last season.

Mar 1 2017 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce underwent shoulder surgery and is expected to miss time during the team's offseason activities, coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday. Reid told the Kansas City Star that Kelce "had it cleaned up" but didn't think the 27-year-old would be sidelined for too long. "No, I don't think so," Reid said, via the newspaper. "He'll probably miss some time throughout the offseason, but he'll be ready, I believe, for camp."


Feb 28 2017 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry signed a six-year contract extension with the Chiefs worth a reported $78 million on Tuesday. Berry's contract, which includes $40 million in guaranteed money and a $20 million signing bonus accordint to ESPN, makes him the highest-paid safety in NFL history.

Feb 2 2017 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry declared that he will refuse to play under the franchise tag in 2017.

  TE Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs was fined a total of $21,615 for actions during and after last week's 18-16 playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to media reports. Kelce was fined $12,500 for his postgame comments about referee Carl Cheffers, who penalized Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher for holding on a two-point conversion that would have allowed Kansas City to tie the game with less than three minutes left to play. Kelce also was fined $9,115 for shoving cornerback Ross Cockrell of the Steelers to the ground after a play was over.
