One of the slight surprises in the Kansas City Chiefs roster cuts on Sunday was who wasn't included -- QB Alex Tanney. The Chiefs fourth string quarterback remains on the roster for at least another few days.
Romeo Crennel was asked on Monday about keeping Tanney on the roster and he noted that he could see some playing time on Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.
"We kind of like the guy a little bit," Crennel said of Tanney, "so that's why we keep him. If we didn't like him and we didn't think he had ability, we'd let him go. He's an unproven guy, but we like some things about himand he's still trying to learn the system and there might be an opportunity for him."
His chances of making the roster are extremely slim. The more likely landing spot for him -- if the Chiefs decide to keep him at all, which is debatable -- is the practice squad. He's very raw and hasn't gotten into a preseason game yet so there's nothing to suggest he'll make the active roster.
