'One Of The Most Versatile College Football Athletes' Invited To Chiefs Rookie Camp

The Chiefs are busy inviting more and more players to this weekend's rookie minicamp. Andre Jones out of the University of Akron has accepted an invitation to the Chiefs rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to the University of Akron's official site.

Read this and you'll see why I didn't say which position he plays:

Jones, one of the most versatile athletes in college football over his career, will first attempt to make the Chiefs playing corner back. In his career, Jones started at both safety spots, both corner back spots and wide receiver, while playing quarterback in the "wildcat" as well as being one of the nation's most dangerous punt and kick returners.

In one game last year he started at receiver and played cornerback, quarterback and special teams.

In his career, he's scored via fumble recovery, reception, rushing and kick return.

So does he fit the bill? Let's see here.

Versatile? Check. Great athlete? Check. Special teamer? Check.

This should be interesting.
