VIDEO: The First Day of the Kansas City Chiefs Off Season Training Activities

Todd Haley had a few words this afternoon about the start of the Kansas City Chiefs voluntary off season training activities (OTAs). Here are the quick hits from the mothership and

  • Three players were not in attendance - Brian Waters, Mike Vrabel and Donald Washington. Waters and Vrabel have not attended any of the mini-camps and Donald Washington can't participate until after he graduates from Ohio St. in June.
  • Practice was preceded by a 75 minutes strength and conditioning session and a 75 minute position tape session.
  • More from Bob Gretz: "There were a handful of players who did not take part as they rehab from injury: QB Brodie Croyle, CB Maurice Leggett, TE Tony Curtis, LB Turk McBride, DT Tank Tyler, DE Glenn Dorsey, OLB Brian Johnston and RB Kolby Smith."

Here are some highlights from head coach Todd Haley:

On the absentees...

“As I said earlier, I’m not going to talk about who’s here and who’s not here. You guys are out there and you have a good view and you can figure most of that out. Again, this is all voluntary and 83 guys were here, so let’s try and focus on those that are here and working hard.”

On class work...

“We’re about an hour and 15 minutes. One group lifts; one group meets and then they switch. We try to make it pretty fast-paced and, like I said, stressing that we’re still trying to get stronger, not getting into that maintenance mode, if there ever is that mode.”

On new Chief G Mike Goff...

“Mike’s another one of those guys. As everybody we’ve brought in here, we’re looking for a certain type of character along with the ability to play. He’s been with a good team that’s had some success. He knows what winning is about and how to prepare to win. That’s what I was touching on: you watch a guy like Mike come in every day. He’s in here every day in the early group ready to work. I think there are some guys watching him and learning from him. That’s one of the big things that Mike brings along with his ability.”

On Glenn Dorsey...

“He’s alright. He’s got a little issue right now that we’ve been working on. He’s been working to get himself ready. But he should be going before too long. I think he made it through today pretty good and that’s what we were looking for.”

Read it all at the mothership. The offensive and defensive lineups for the training activities is after the jump.
