Looking for a returning candidate in Kansas City? And what about quarterback Frank Clark, who shed some serious weight in the offseason and looks closer to a dominant player on the march to Super Bowl LIV glory in Kansas City in 2020. gout” last season, the extra pounds affecting his speed and agility. Add in some worrisome off-the-cuff issues from last season, and Clark was presented as a cut candidate ahead of the new league year. Instead, the Chiefs stuck with their high-priced defenseman — who restructured his contract in March — and could now reap the benefits. Frank Clark playing with the eye of the tiger would be a huge boost for Steve Spagnuolo’s defense.

No one wants to bet the Chiefs, who have won the AFC West six straight years, to win the AFC West again | For the win
Despite owning the division and entering the 2022 season with the shortest odds, relatively no one is betting on the Kansas City Chiefs.
No, seriously. Don’t you believe me? Here it is:
Mahomes and the guys are being doubled up in the betting, along with being the fewest bettors on a team to win the AFC West.
For good reasons, right? Maybe because KC offers the lowest return at +155, but the rest of the division whom It has crept up on Andy Reid and everyone will take a step forward this season.
The Raiders made the playoffs for the first time since 2016 and then went on to steal superstar wide receiver Davante Adams from Green Bay. Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson is set to begin the Denver Broncos era. After missing the playoffs last year, Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers are widely expected to stake their claim as one of the AFC’s best teams in 2022.
2022 Fantasy Football Training Camp Believe It Or Not: Common Backfields For Rams, Broncos And Jets? | CBS Sports
Juju Smith-Schuster will be Patrick Mahomes’ second target
Case: Almost everyone who visited Chiefs camp last week made some version of the same comment: JuJu Smith-Schuster is leaving as the No. 1 wide receiver in Kansas City. While Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been very good in OTAs and we’ve seen our share of Skyy Moore and Mecole Hardman videos, it appears that Smith-Schuster is leading the pack early in camp.
Verdict: Believe it.
If you want to accuse me of confirmation bias, I wouldn’t argue. I’ve been a long time believer in Smith-Schuster and had him in my top 20 when he first signed with the Chiefs. Thankfully the voters agree with me and I think it’s because of the logic behind it. He is the only receiver on this team to have a good Fantasy season. In fact, he has three more than the rest of the receivers combined. If Smith-Schuster can stay healthy, he’s definitely top 12.

Rams HC Sean McVay announced he signed an extension this offseason | NFL.com
McVay’s extension also means a deal is pending for general manager Les Snead.
“Les and I have always been a couple,” McVay said Tuesday, via ESPN’s Sarah Barshop . “We wanted to announce it after we both did it. Mine is complete. Les is in the process.”
Snead has been with the Rams for a decade as general manager in 2012 when the team was still in St. Louis. He replaced Jeff Fisher with McVey in 2017, making McVey the NFL’s youngest head coach, and the two have been together since, including four playoff appearances, two NFC titles and one Super Bowl victory in five years. was quite successful.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says evidence warrants at least full-year suspension for Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson | ESPN
Last week, the NFL formally appealed Watson’s six-game suspension handed down by NFL disciplinary officer Sue. L Robinson earlier this month. Goodell was asked at a league meeting Tuesday to officially confirm the Denver Broncos’ new ownership group why the NFL is appealing Robinson’s decision and wants at least one year of suspension for the Cleveland Browns quarterback.

Roquan Smith demands trade from Bears: Ravens among top potential landing spots for Broncos All-Pro | CBS Sports
2. Denver Broncos
The off-ball linebacker position is one of the weakest spots on Denver’s roster, so Smith would be a logical addition for a team that loaded up this offseason by trading for Russell Wilson and is preparing for a Super Bowl run. Alexander Johnson began the year as Denver’s inside linebacker before suffering a season-ending pectoral injury in Week 6. He’s still a free agent, so the Broncos don’t appear to have much interest in reuniting, leaving Jonas Griffith and Josey Jewell. as his first two interior linebackers.
Smith immediately jumps over both of them on the depth chart and could be the final piece to put them over the top on defense. Smith in the middle of the defense with Bradley Chubb and Randy Gregory, cornerback Patrick Surtain II and safety Justin Simmons lurking in the secondary will make this a scary defense on a weekly basis.
That said, Denver will have to free up some salary cap space to make room for Smith, and after dealing Wilson, there’s a question of whether they have the assets to actually acquire him.

That may change in 2022 — but if it does, it won’t be because Humphrey is focusing on these things.
“Yeah, I appreciate it more than Chris,” Humphrey told reporters Monday. “It’s pretty cool to get those compliments from good guys like him. Honestly, I don’t try to think about those things during the season. I’m just trying to focus on what I can do for the team and how I can improve my game.”
