Running a little behind today...
LeShaun Sims is wanting to contend for a bigger role in the upcoming season. Mularkey says that he is liking what he has seen out of Sims so far. He said he's been good, and is doing fine, and that he is all business when he is on the field. Sims was drafted in round five last year, and played in 13 games, and started in 2 last season. Sims says he learned a lot from his rookie season, and that the key is to relax, play ball, and get the defensive call. LeShaun also said the new guys around him (Ryan, Jackson, and Cyprien) have been cool, and they are all competing and working together. His goal is to come into training camp showing the coaches that he understands the defense more, and that he can help the team.
Mentioned it super briefly the other day that the Chiefs reached out to talk to Ryan Cowden about their open GM position. So how serious of a candidate is Cowden? He hasn't been the director of player personnel for very long. He joined the Titans' organization last year after spending 16 years with the Panthers. McCormick is reporting that Crowden doesn't appear to be a frontrunner to land the open position.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
