AFC Notes: Chiefs, Dolphins, Titans

Chiefs

Sources tell Albert Breer that former Chiefs GM John Dorsey was more of a scout than a manager during his time with the Chiefs and the level of disorganization was noticeable before the Chris Ballard, who’s “hyper-organized“, departed and much more obvious after he left for the Colts’ job.

“It wasn’t dysfunction so much as it was decisions were being made that seemed to come out of nowhere,” a source tells Breer. “So that existed, but the people here weren’t aware that ownership was aware of it. … You look back now, how it worked out, and ownership was more aware that it didn’t need to be run that way.

Dolphins

  • James Walker of ESPN believes Dolphins’ veteran OLB Koa Misi could be released, given he played in just four games last year due to a neck injury and he and Miami have already agreed to a restructured contract.
  • Walker adds that Misi must prove he can stay healthy and retain the starting outside linebacker job or he could be a potential cut this summer.
  • Walker mentions that second-round LB Raekwon McMillan will push Misi for a first-team role.

Titans

Titans HC Mike Mularkey mentioned CB LeShaun Sims as an improving player who has stood out in practice so far.

He’s been good,” Mularkey said, via Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site. “He’s doing fine. LeShaun is very quiet — he doesn’t say a whole lot. But he comes to work every day, and he is all business when he is on the field. I think you can tell it’s his second year. He is a better player this year than he was this time last year.”

Sims mentioned that he’s hoping to secure a much larger role on defense this year.

“This year, I just want to come (into training camp), still the same mindset as last year,” Sims said. “But I definitely want a bigger role. I just want to come in, let the coaches see I understand the defense more, and do what I can to help the team, on defense and on special teams. That’s the biggest thing for me right now.”
