Trent Green

Trent Green recently took part in a panel that discussed “Celebrating Civic Engagement” in the Pierson Auditorium. This event was held by “Students in the City,” an organization developed in the past few years by the UMKC.

“Giving back has always been important to me. It’s a deep-rooted desire I have that allows me to try and make a difference in our community. I think that everyone here today is obviously the future of Kansas City. If we all are able to give even a little bit back, be it time or money, our community will continue to grow and thrive.”

OFFENSIVE ADJUSTMENTS:

- from FOXSports.com

The Chiefs have been one of the league's most prolific offensive teams the last three years, so don't look for many changes in their strategy. They will continue to attack opposing defenses, attempt to put them on their heels and then take advantage. The Chiefs would prefer to get more production from their wide receivers, but unless they are able to draft one who can produce immediately, that may not be achieved. The speedy Samie Parker is capable of giving the Chiefs more big plays downfield, but he may not be ready for a full-time role.

The Prez starting a New Term

President Carl Peterson has decided to stay on as the team’s president for another four years. He is starting a new term. His contract was set to expire with the 2005 season but has been extended to 2009.

“Carl was instrumental in leading the Chiefs back to the top echelon of the NFL after joining the organization in December of 1988. This new contract will carry through his 21st season with the organization. Such stability is unusual in the front office of an NFL team and is a big plus for the football fans of Mid-America. We look forward to the Chiefs continuing to be a competitive team within the NFL.”
- Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt

Peterson is entering his 17th season with the Chiefs. He began his vocation with the franchise in December of 1988. During his time with the team, the Chiefs have come in first or second in the AFC West 11 times.

Hard Truth

- from FOXSports.com

The Chiefs will have to draft a linebacker with their first pick in the draft. They couldn't line up at linebacker if the season began today. The Chiefs have only four serious roster candidates under contract and all have issues. Shawn Barber probably won't be ready for the start of the season because of a knee injury, Maslowski is trying to make a comeback and Mitchell and Keyaron Fox have been slow to develop. One of last year's starters, Scott Fujita, is a restricted free agent, but another team might make a run at him if the Chiefs overextended themselves in free agency.

Free Agency Fun

The Kansas City Chiefs are looking forward to the possibility of innovation. This innovation is in terms of team turnaround. How best to do this? Get a bunch of exceptional additions.

With free agency terms unfolding, the Chiefs are beginning to host interviews with prospective clientele. Most recently at Arrowhead Stadium headquarters, a trio of players including Samari Rolle, Edgerton Hartwell, and Jeremiah Trotter stopped to make a visit. Hartwell and Trotter are on free agency status. Rolle was waived from the Titans due to a salary cap move.

Good luck to the Chiefs on acquiring the right players.
