Chiefs head coach Todd Haley addressed the media following the start of the voluntary conditioning program today.
The question everyone was wondering was the status of Larry Johnson. Haley said he didn't want to get into a roll call regarding who did (and didn't) attend the Kansas City Chiefs offseason program today.
We're likely not going to find out much more information on Johnson until he meets with the Chiefs brass on Wednesday over contract issues.
The 60+ players that did attend the Chiefs voluntary offseason conditioning program lifted weights and worked hard according to Haley (via 810 Sports).
He also reiterated that all the players under the new coach's watch have a clean slate and that presumably includes Johnson, Tony Gonzalez and Brian Waters, who all have issues with Chiefs management.
Due to the rules set forth by the Chiefs and the (lack of) media access, we didn't suspect anyone from the Chiefs would confirm the presence of any of these players.
It seems as if Haley was hitting all the major talking points we've publicly heard from the Chiefs under the Pioli regime:
- Everyone worked hard
- Everyone in the building is focused on winning
- No specifics on off the field issues with players
- The best player will have a shot to play
I've got a feeling this press conference will be pretty much like all the others we'll see in the future.
As always, keep up with the FanShots if you find anything on the Chiefs that did (and did not) attend the start of the voluntary program.
