Chiefs Taking A Look At A Former Notre Dame Receiver

New, comments

Charlie Weis was coaching in college this time last year so we knew it was only a matter of time before the Chiefs checked out one of his former players.

Former ND WR David Grimes will attend the Chiefs rookie minicamp this weekend, according to Notre Dame's official site.

He most recently worked out catching passes at Jimmy Clausen's workout.

Grimes went undrafted in 2009 and signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent shortly after the draft. The Chiefs rookie minicamp can have rookie and select first-year players so Grimes qualifies. Some players, like Grimes, will be invited to camp on a tryout basis. There's no contract or anything here.

Here's a quick bio of him after the 2009 draft:

Grimes was one of three captains for Notre Dame in 2008 along with fourth-round draft pick David Bruton. He recorded 55 career receptions for 579 yards with four touchdowns for the Irish, also making a name for himself on special teams, averaging 23.7 yards on 36 returns in his first two seasons. He lined up in the slot and out wide in various formations throughout his career.

If he knows Weis, I'd say he's got some advantage over the other rookie tryouts.
