    Somewhere most interesting
    If OBJ doesn’t go full little biatch like Antonio Brown the CLE could really be a serious contender in the AFC.

    Yea if that deal goes down it should inform us bout JDs approximate market value.
    TheKansas City Chiefshave agreed to trade edge rusherDee Fordto theSan Francisco 49ers, a source confirmed to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

    The Niners are expected to give Ford a multiyear deal in the range of five years and $87.5 million, the source said.

    San Francisco will send a 2020 second-round pick to Kansas City, a source confirmed. The deal can't become official until the new league year begins Wednesday.

    There you go - Iv'e said all along didn't think JD would fetch (Fords is a 2020 pick not 2019), but a single second round pick and Ford doesn't have Clownes injury issues.

    This off-season has been more exciting than the Super Bowl.

    For the last 17 years....doesn't get any better than the Texans off-season. Personally, winning a Super Bowl would just duck up all this fun.

    I’ll go ahead and break the news; Blake Bortles has been released. Idk what the future holds for him but NFL QB isn’t looking very likely. But hey, he’s tall and rich.

    Kansas City Star calls for Chiefs to cut Tyreek Hill, if allegations are true
    March 16, 2019, 8:51 AM EDT


    The Chiefs moved swiftly in November to sever ties with running back Kareem Hunt, after a video debunked his claim to the team that he had no involvement in an altercation at a Cleveland hotel earlier that year. The Chiefs now have another situation with a star player, and the local newspaper has called for similar decisive action.

    The Editorial Board of the Kansas City Star calls for the Chiefs to release Hill, if it’s proven that he broke his three-year-old son’s arm.

    Whether it can be proven that Hill broke his child’s arm is a different issue. His name isn’t listed on the incident report relating to the injury, but the incident occurred at his address. Crystal Espinal, his fiancee, is named in the report; according to the Star, she is currently pregnant with twins.

    Obvious questions become whether she or someone else other than Hill inflicted the injury, if the boy’s arm was indeed broken. Then there’s the equally obvious question, given the financial stakes of a situation like this, as to whether she or someone else will try to take the fall for something Hill may have done.

    Hunt’s case turned on video. Without evidence that clear in Hill’s case, it may be impossible to conclusively prove anything.

    Even then, Hill’s history of domestic violence — largely overlooked as he became one of the best players in the league — will cloud not only this situation but also his career as it moves forward, absent conclusive proof that he is innocent. If nothing else, it could make the Chiefs wait for another year before making Hill the highest-paid receiver in the league.

    A little more background on Hill's pathologic history:

    KCTV 5 obtained another Overland Park police report from March 5 on a report of child abuse or neglect. That report was closed three days later when authorities declined to prosecute, according to KCTV 5’s report.

    Hill, 25, is one of the Chiefs’ most prominent players. The team and the star receiver have been discussing a large contract extension that’s expected to make him among the highest-paid players at his position.

    Hill has a history of domestic violence. He reportedly punched and choked Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on Dec. 11, 2014. He was arrested and dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. He received three years probation. The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

    The conviction was dismissed in August 2018 and ordered to be expunged after he completed his probation requirements.LINK

    There's an org that puts winning above all else, since Dorsey has taken over.

    Well certainly indicates that Tyreek Hill is crappin in high cotton because anybody who knows Overland Park knows it to be the most exlusive area of all of KC metro and I'm talking River Oaks category exclusivity here.

    I am interested in your opinion Doc. Given his history, combined with the recent story would it have bothered you had the Texans drafted him in the 5th round?

    Take into consideration his prolific career, even though the KC Chiefs haven't won an AFC Championship game, he's made for a heck of an offensive football team.

    I don't know I would say bother me as a player. But certainly as a person (especially the unforgivable 2014 incident with his 1st pregnant girlfriend) . He would have been a huge positive on the field for us. But this team would not have been able to deal with the continued off field antics..............which will have finally caught up with him, if the recent episode with a child less than a year following the completion of his probation is confirmed. I think I would "bother" me much less if the fists were directed to a 6' 200lb male.

    Sure you would. But that's not what we're talking about. I want to know if you're in the "winning is the only thing that matters" camp.
