Leonard Pope Ready To Win The Chiefs Tight End Battle

New, comments

Last week we took a poll to determine the best position battle as we enter training camp. Coming in number two, was tight end.

In one corner, you've got the rookie. Tony Moeaki is young, athletic and a solid blocker. The Chiefs have reason to get him on the field.

In the other corner, you've got the veteran, Leonard Pope, who recently told the Albany Herald at his football camp that he was ready to win the battle.

I feel I’m No. 1 right now, and don’t have plans to be anything besides that. I’m going to work hard and compete every day. It’s a competition, so I’m going to just do my job and compete.

I'd have to say, at this point, Pope is No. 1 on the non-existent depth chart. The Chiefs really like him but from the looks of it, Moeaki will have a fair shot to win the battle.
