The Amarillo Venom...a cool team name or the coolest team name?
That's where Jason Cunningham, former Montana State kicker, ended up in what's called the Lone Star Football League. Cunningham, if you remember (which you probably don't), participated in the Chiefs rookie minicamp on a tryout basis last month.
Cunningham hoped to join the Kansas City Chiefs roster, but was recently released from Kansas City. Venom contacted Cunningham to see if he would be interested in finishing out the season with them and he was more than happy to accept.
Owner Stephanie Tucker stated, "The Venom are very happy to have another NFL prospect on the team and look forward to seeing what Cunningham can do for our kicking game. We recently improved our offensive game with Nate Davis and expect to see the same positive results out of Cunningham."
He wasn't really released by the Chiefs. It was a tryout to begin with.
Can you come up with a cooler team name than the Venom? Maybe something else involving snakes?
