A few weeks ago I saw someone tweet out this picture of the Kansas City Chiefs workout a player inside what apeared to be a basketball court. I didn't quite understand why a workout would happen there and didn't think much of it after the fact.
Now we're starting to get our answer on exactly what that workout was.
According to multiple reports, the Chiefs have shown strong interest in Demetrius Harris, who was a basketball player for UW-Milwaukee. Harris was an all-state football player in high school but ultimately decided on playing basketball at UW-Milwaukee.
Check out this report from Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Two years ago, Chiefs GM John Dorsey, then with the Green Bay Packers, was scouting players and someone told him to keep an eye on Harris a couple of years down the line.
Chiefs area scout Ryan Kessenich, a Madison native and 2006 graduate of UWM, put Harris through his paces April 5 on campus at Engelmann Field, the Panthers' soccer stadium, and the Klotsche Center.
According to the Chiefs, Harris ran 40 yards in 4.52 seconds to go with a vertical jump of 36½ inches and a broad jump of 10-2.
Hmm ... a basketball player turned football player. Where have we heard that one before? Worked out pretty well last time.
