The Chiefs Check Out Another Punter

We've had a few mentions of the Kansas City Chiefs working out kickers and punters even though they've got one of the better kicker/punter combos in the NFL.

No, the Chiefs likely aren't looking to replace either one. But should an injury occur mid-season, they've gotta know what's out there.

That's probably the reason they worked out Eastern Michigan punter Zach Johnson last week, according to the Twitter page of Filip Filipovic.

Johnson was second team All-MAC last season and was a Ray Guy finalist as the nation's top punter in 2006.

His 2008 season was injury riddled but, according to various accounts, that's behind him.

He has some field goal experience successfully kicking 5/7 field goals in 2007 including a 50-yarder against Western Michigan.

The Chiefs reportedly worked him out in Ann Arbor last week -- possibly at the same time they checked out Michigan punter Zoltan Mesko.

Chiefs scouts attended the Eastern Michigan vs. Western Michigan game this year so they've seen him in action.
