The Kansas City Chiefs have as many unanswered questions as any team in the NFL right now. The most important function of training camp is to sort out most of these situations. Here are a few guesses on how some of the Chiefs' issues will turn out during training camp.
More specifically, I believe Cairo Santos will beat out Ryan Succop at placekicker and Zach Fulton will win the job at right guard. Santos and Succop are neck and neck right now, and Fulton is looking better than most people expected early on in camp.
The Jamaal Charles extension certainly doesn't bode well for Houston's chances and drafting Dee Ford gave the front office some leverage in the negotiations. Furthermore, extending Alex Smith should be a bigger priority. Houston showed some character coming into camp on time, but it's doubtful that he will be rewarded for it anytime soon.
The Chiefs' contract to have training camp at Western Missouri State in St. Joseph will be up after this year. St. Joe is less than an hour away from Kansas City, and the fans absolutely love watching the team practice there. 6,200 showed up there last Saturday. If the team moves, they better move somewhere close or there will be an uproar from the fans.
Jenkins is starting to show the potential everyone knew he had as he's looked great thus far in camp. The coaching staff shouldn't be afraid to shake things up at receiver after how bad the group performed last season.
When Smith started camp on the second team, most assumed it was as punishment for his recent DUI arrest. It's actually because Andy Reid and Bob Sutton think Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker just look better right now. With their terrible performance down the stretch of the 2013 season, the secondary is another area the coaches shouldn't be afraid to make a few changes.
