The Chiefs were indoors on Saturday as they continued the second day of mandatory minicamp. The rain around Kansas City moved things to the dome -- which, if you're attending the sessions, is a good thing because it will be huuuumid.
I attended the OTAs last week and minicamp today and I couldn't tell the difference between the two. The Chiefs are seemingly doing about the same thing at each.
On Saturday, not much changed. Here's how they lined up at high competition positions:
- First team offensive line (from left to right): Albert, Waters, Wiegmann (and some Niswanger), Lilja and O'Callaghan.
- First team safeties: Eric Berry and Jon McGraw to start things off.
- First team linebackers: Derrick Johnson and Jovan Belcher.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley addressed the media after practice. Here are a few notes from his press conference:
- "Easiest way to get on the team" is through special teams.
- Dustin Colquitt was back at practice. He and his wife had a baby yesterday.
- Depth chart: "It's all mixing and matching."
- Shaun Smith: "He's an interesting character."
- Conditioning: "It's a big item" that isn't a major focus anymore. There's approximately 60 percent less running, he says.
- Tony Moeaki: "What has me encouraged with these young guys is there's not one that I have to put in a class [separate] from the others."
- Denver win to end the season: "When you can finish in a positive fashion, it does nothing but help you."
- Training camp: He's seen the facility and says it's good for everyone involved. He calls it "cute" and a "neat little town."
