Chiefs Could Sign Two To Three Tryout Players

During Todd Haley's press conference on Sunday he said he was generally pleased with the undrafted free agents and tryout players that participated in the rookie minicamp. The undrafted free agents are under contract and part of the club. The Chiefs released the names of those players.

We've been tracking the Chiefs tryout players with the various reports out there. I was able to confirm only a couple of the players at minicamp this weekend but Bob Gretz has seven of the eight tryout guys:

Kansas State DE Jeffrey Fitzgerald, Pittsburgh QB Bill Stull, Notre Dame WR David Grimes, Troy ILB Boris Lee, Vanderbilt DE Steven Stone, Virgina Tech LS Matt Tuttle and Eastern Michigan P Zach Johnson.

So are the Chiefs going to sign any of these guys?

"I would say there is a chance," Haley said yesterday. "Maybe a couple, three maybe?"

So who has a shot? This is my guess:

  • David Grimes: Plays a position of need and is familiar with Charlie Weis' offense, which means the learning curve in camp would be minimal.
  • Boris Lee: He plays at a position of need and had a solid camp.
