Boy, wouldn't this be nice. You're basically an unknown NFL player to most fans, you spend the season bouncing from team to team including a stop with the Kansas City Chiefs, and then you end up catching on with a team that has a chance to win the Super Bowl.
That could be the scenario for Chiefs TE Cody Slate faces.
He worked out with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday, according to CSN Bay Area, likely due to 49ers TE Delanie Walker being doubtful for the playoffs at the moment.
Slate spent a couple of training camps with the Chiefs. He was released on the final cut down day before the season.
