We head out to Arrowhead for Chiefs Training camp press conferences after their first full day of padded practices. Andy Reid informs us that Frank Clark missed practice with a stomach virus, Darius Harris is excused for personal reasons, BoPete Keyes has an orbital fracture, Martinas Rankin and Juan Thornhill are on PUP. Andy Reid discussed how they've managed to keep every key player and getting a Travis Kelce extension done. Travis Kelce discussed what went into his extension and why he wants to stay in KC. We also hear from The Landlord Tyrann Mathieu and new Chief Tedric Thompson.
Travis Kelce is the latest Chief to sign a longterm extension fully cementing they will keep their star powered core for the next several years. Kelce's extension continues to give the Chiefs flexibility as they manage their cap moving forward. They managed not to change Kelce's salary for the upcoming year and the salary jumps after that are super manageable.
