Last week Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel was asked about the possibility of a reported series of joint training camp practices with the Arizona Cardinals, who are set to play the Chiefs in the first game on the preseason schedule, and he didn't give off the impression that a deal is likely to get done.
But the Missouri Western AD sure sounds like a deal between the two teams will get done. The St. Joe News Press has a series of quotes from Kurt McGuffin, MWSU's athletic director, who says, "It's on track to get done."
Read the News Press story. It sounds like this is all but official.
According to the report, the Cardinals would likely practice with the Chiefs on August 7 and 8, with the possibility that the Cardinals would practice again on August 9, one day before the preseason game at Arrowhead Stadium. Currently, the Chiefs training camp schedule has a walk-through and a practice on both August 7 and 8 with the day before the game, August 9, scheduled off.
The Cardinals are playing in the Hall of Fame game so the idea is to cut down on the travel days and head straight to Kansas City.
If the MWSU AD has good information (which, uh, he probably should), we will likely soon be hearing an official announcement.
