2017 Chiefs Training Camp Thread: Day One

At long last, the day has arrived for the 2017 Kansas City Chiefs official training camp to begin. This is also the official beginning to the season. All players are expected on the field this afternoon (except those who are injured) but pads won’t come on until Sunday… that’s when the real action begins. That’s when we’ll actually begin to be able to measure whether or not players hopeful of making a splash this year will make the team or not.

 

Feel free to post any tweets you may find of players and plays being made. Go Chiefs!!!!

    Smith quotes
    “Alex Smith says he feels like he has a good idea of the type of person Tamba is. Said he was jabbing him a bit about Twitter drama… Smith takes it all lightly adding it’s funny “the old guy” takes to social media.
    Smith says #Chiefs watched the Pittsburgh game “a ton” and “numerous” times during the offseason.
    Alex Smith: “I still feel like I got a lot of bounce. I really enjoy this time.”
    Smith on Mahomes: “I think you want a high quality competitive QB period, and obviously drafting a guy that high you expect that.”
    Smith: “I think when the quality of the QB room is getting better that’s a good thing.”
