Chiefs safety and New Orleans native Tyrann Mathieu hosted his fourth annual "Heart of a Badger" football camp Sunday at the Saints' practice facility. Mathieu, who hosted a weekend of events that included a "Taste of New Orleans" welcome party and a celebrity kickball game, said it's important for him to give back to a community that supported him so much during some turbulent times in his life. "First and foremost, I embody everything that is New Orleans, that is Louisiana," said Mathieu, who said the city has dealt with a lot of adversity and had to overcome and build back "like me."

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt on the passing of Gunther Cunningham: “My family and I are deeply saddened to hear the news of Gunther's passing. During his nine seasons as defensive coordinator and two as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, he led some of the most feared defenses in our franchise's history with his energetic and motivating coaching style. Gunther made a tremendous impact on so many lives on and off the playing field in nearly five decades of coaching. Our heartfelt condolences go out to René, Natalie, Adam and the entire Cunningham family during this difficult time.”

WR Mecole Hardman, a second-round draft pick, flashed his 4.33 40 speed at the opening of Chiefs rookie camp. He lined up in a variety of spots, both in the slot and split wide. "The things coach (Andy) Reid (does) in this offense suit me well," Hardman said. "I feel I can do a lot of things in the offense. I'm versatile. I feel wherever he needs me to go, I can go. Whatever he needs me to do, I can do." Hardman is the obvious choice as a replacement for Tyreek Hill if he's released or suspended.
