Andy Reid Prepares for Rams

Andy Reid Prepares for Rams

Jason O.Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs (3-3) are expecting everything from the St. Louis Rams (2-4) on Sunday.

Kansas City will host the Austin Davis led Rams at Arrowhead Stadium and head coach Andy Reid will have his team prepared.

"On the offensive side, they’re explosive. Anytime you can take a young quarterback like that and have him come in and play at the level that he’s playing at, first of all means he’s talented, but it also means you’re doing a heck of a job coaching him," Reid said this week.  "Their runners are good, their receivers are good, their tight ends-everybody’s contributing there. Then, special teams, they’re scoring points too and making big plays. You got a good football team that you’ve got to get ready for. They throw a lot of things at you, offensively, defensively and on special teams. That’s been a [Rams head coach] Jeff Fisher trait over the years that he’s been a head coach."

Davis led the Rams to a 28-26 win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday and Reid said that he's come a long way."He’s accurate and gets the ball out. Looks like he’s managing things very well, everybody’s where they need to be. Looks like he’s hitting the right receivers. To me, I mean, I studied him when he came out, he’s a good football player," Reid said.  "He’s transferred that from college into the NFL. He’s a football player, he gets it. That’s an impressive deal, I think. That’s a plus anytime your third guy can come in and do a great job. (Rams Offensive Coordinator) Brian (Schottenheimer) is a great coach too, so he’s lucky to be in good hands there, from an offensive standpoint."

Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Charles Returns To Help Chiefs Destroy Patriots

Jason O. Wastson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Jamaal Charles' ankle seemed just fine Monday night. Charles, who missed the Kansas City Chiefs game last week against the Miami Dolphins with a high ankle sprain, caught two touchdowns and ran for another to help the Chiefs rout the New England Patriots 41-14.

"Coach said he was going to look for me, and see how it feels during the game," Charles said, "and I guess I started feeling like myself. He didn't want to take me out."

Charles finished the game with 18 rushes for 92 yards, and teammate Knile Davis had 16 carries for 107 yards in the win.

The Chiefs (2-2) never allowed the Patriots (2-2) to get comfortable on offense, constantly pressuring Tom Brady, who had three turnovers -- two interceptions and one fumble -- in the loss.

"It was just a bad performance by everybody," Brady said. "We need to make sure we never have this feeling again. We've got to figure out what we have to do better."

Alex Smith completed 20 of 26 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas City, whose fans set the record for loudest outdoor sports venue in the first half, according to the Guinness World Records. The Chiefs' fans hit a noise level of 142.2 decibels, which tops the previous record of 137.6 set by the Seattle Seahawks' fans last season.

Chiefs Sign Smith to Four-Year Deal

Chiefs Sign Smith to Four-Year Deal

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Kansas City Chiefs have apparently found their quarterback of the future, signing Alex Smith to a four-year contract extension. Multiple media reports say the deal is worth approximately $68 million.

Smith was acquired last season in a trade with San Francisco for a third round pick in 2013 and 2014. The extension will keep the signal caller in Kansas City through the 2018 season as he still has one year remaining on his current contract. 

"It was a priority of ours to get this deal done and keep Alex in a Chiefs uniform long-term," Kansas City general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. "Alex is a proven leader on and off the field. He is a special individual with a lot of ability, and we are fortunate to have him here."

The 30-year-old posted one of the best seasons of his career last season, throwing for 23 touchdowns and a career-high 3,313 passing yards. In his first season with the Chiefs, Smith helped the team to an 11-4 record and a spot in the playoffs.

Chiefs Suspend Wide Reciever Dwayne Bowe One Game

Chiefs Suspend Wide Reciever Dwayne Bowe One Game

Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Kansas City Chiefs will start their season without one of their best play makers as the team has suspended wide receiver Dwayne Bowe one game for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Bowe will now miss the team's season opener against the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 7. He will be allowed to play in the Chiefs final three preseason games.

"I am extremely sorry that I can't be on the field for the first game of the 2014 season because I made an error in judgment," Bowe said in a statement. "I take responsibility for my mistake, and it will not happen again. I hope that my teammates, coaches and Chiefs fans accept my sincere apology.

"I will be supporting my teammates in Week 1, and I cannot wait to get back on the field to help us win in Week 2 and beyond as we work towards our goal of winning the Super Bowl."

The 29-year-old Bowe has spent his entire seven-year career with the Chiefs.

ESPN: Chiefs Agree to Contract Extension with Jamaal Charles

ESPN: Chiefs Agree to Contract Extension with Jamaal Charles

Jason O. Wastson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles' contract dispute with the team was short lived: ESPN is reporting that Charles will report to training camp after he and the team agreed on a two-year contract extension.

Charles did not report to training camp on Wednesday at Missouri Western State University, but he is on his way to camp now that a deal has been reached.

His original deal had two years remaining on it, but his new deal runs through 2017. The new arrangement will pay Charles $18.1 million for the additional two years. He will make an extra $5.1 million over the next two seasons, including a $4.4 million raise this year.

The 27-year-old Charles is arguably one of the biggest offensive weapons in the NFL. This past season for the Chiefs, he ran for 1,287 yards, had 70 catches for 693 yards, and scored 19 total touchdowns in 2013.

He also provided a league-high 35.3 percent of the team's yards from scrimmage, and has a career average of 5.6 yards per carry.

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Brandon Flowers, Pro Bowl corner for Kansas City, was released by the team on Friday. Flowers had started for each of the past six seasons for the Chiefs.

Flowers had not been attending offseason practices with the Chiefs, causing many to speculate that he was not happy with the franchise. The cornerback took to twitter on Friday saying "thanks to the Hunt family for the 6 years in Kansas City". 

"We appreciate Brandon's contributions to the team over the last six seasons," a statement released from new general manager John Dorsey said. "It's in the best interest of the club and the player to part ways at this time. We wish him nothing but the best as he continues his career."

Marcus Cooper has replaced Flowers in the starting lineup during offseason workouts.
