Living most of your life anchored within hours of the Kansas City Chiefs' stomping ground, two things become apparent: Local buzz always builds in the weeks leading up to training camp, and I-435 makes you want to high-five a windshield with your face.
("Let's play 21 questions." "I wonder what the weather's gonna be like." "I spy something gree..." EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING AROUND US IS GREEN! WHY ARE WE LISTENING TO COLDPLAY?)
The truth? Kansas City hasn't stepped foot onto a field in three weeks. The same holds true for every other NFL team—some haven't suited up since June 12, which is why your timeline reads like the diary of a LeBron-loving Stan (NSFW). (Sources say everyone who tweets "sources say..." deserves to have their septic tank clog.)
That being the case, if you're scavenging for on-field progress reports, exhale and Google a hobby. The Chiefs don't kick off training camp until July 24.
Conversely, the team has been ringing with off-field buzz, from cameos to rumors, over the past handful of weeks.
