Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com tells the story of a few Chiefs players rising from the unknown to the 53-man roster. Often, he writes, that comes because players can play multiple positions (and special teams).
For LB Cory Greenwood, that's no different as he doubled as a long-snapper at times this spring.
"This spring, I practiced (long-snapping) a lot just training for the combines, because I wanted to come in and make myself as versatile as I could," LB Cory Greenwood said. "If I could help the team by long-snapping, playing special teams and linebacker I would be that much more valuable to the team."
Remember the long-snapper battle last year? It went back and forth between Tanner Purdum and Gafford as both were released at one point.
Gafford, like Greenwood, is one of those guys that can do multiple things. Last year, for example, he was a long-snapper, tight end and fullback (in reserve situations).
