Movie producer Grant Curtis remembers being “a card-carrying member of the Chiefs Huddle Club” when he was a youngster. So it made sense for him to be involved with “Delaney,” a ESPN 30-for-30 Short about Chiefs running back Joe Delaney which had an advanced screening Monday night in Kansas City.
The first day of hitting at Chiefs training camp practice meant a return to action for several players who missed most of last season. Nobody was more enthused about the return than defensive end Mike Catapano.
One player whose offseason improvement was evident during the Chiefs’ first padded practice Monday was defensive lineman Jaye Howard, who says he put on 20 pounds of muscle this offseason and now checks in at 330 pounds.

Knowing when and when not to support a young football player with legal or drug issues takes plenty of research and conversation. So it was for the Chiefs when considering the circumstances of undrafted free agent Justin Cox. And the case of star linebacker Justin Houston four years ago.
After seven months of running, lifting and studying, the Chiefs finally will get back to real football Monday. Defensive players who missed a significant amount of time last year due to injuries will get to see where they’re at physically, but the first day in pads will also help the offense in many ways.
One of the best stories of the Chiefs’ 2015 training camp lasted less than 72 hours. On Sunday, the club announced that it had released former Raytown running back LaVance Taylor — the player who asked the Chiefs for a job via Twitter and got one — to make room for running back Darrin Reaves of Alabama-Birmingham.
