When you think of cursed NFL teams, who do you think of? Arrowhead Pride wants to know what your answer is. They have given three options; Chiefs, Browns, or Bills. I would absolutely have to go with the Browns on this one. 
                                                                                                                                                                                       This is a great article to see the overview of the Chiefs current situation. It goes through from position to position of the Chiefs offense and helps you get better acquainted with the current statuses in Kansas City pre-training camp.
Remember when Dwight Freeney was absolutely amazing? He was spectacular at one point, but that day has passed. Now the DE still has his golden years in the NFL creating expectations for him but are they realistic anymore? 
                                                                                                                                                                                     From not being invited last year as a rookie to attend the rookie symposium,  to being asked to speak at it. It is quite the move up for San Diego Safety Jahleel Addae, and apparently he was very impressive with his speech to the new rookie class.
The Denver Broncos experienced one of the worst beat downs in Super Bowl history last season. The defense wasn't the whole story,  but after surrendering 43 points they are the biggest reason for the massacre. They have added even more pieces to the puzzle now after that catastrophe and believe they will stand the test better this year.
                                                                                                                                                                                      Take this story with a grain of salt because it comes from the Broncos themselves, but it's still worth a read. Newly acquired Safety T.J. Ward is already making an impact for the Broncos defense. He brings attitude to a club that desperately needs it and versatility to a team known for their creativity. 


                                                                                                                                                                                      Kiko Alonso came out of no where last year and simply dominated. He should have won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors, though Sheldon Richardson snuck that one in some how. Kiko's impressive success as a rookie makes it all that much more sad that he appears to have torn his ACL working out in Oregon. If true, he will miss his entire sophomore year.
                                                                                                                                                                                  Normal people are not allowed to talk about bombs in an airport. However, apparently if you are a star in the NFL it will get swept under the rug. That's the case for Aldon Smith anyway who will not be charged for his bomb reference to security at LAX Airport last year.
