Chiefs GM On Unsigned Draft Picks: They Know When Camp Starts

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and Voice Of The Chiefs Mitch Holthus conducted a "take over" of 101.1 the Fox this morning. The Chiefs are doing the same with 810 WHB.

Pioli was on with Holthus and gave a quick non-update update to the Chiefs draft pick signings.

"The official time for the players is our first practice on Friday," he said. "We have four more of the rookie draft choices to sign."

Those four would be: first round pick Eric Berry, second round picks Dexter McCluster and Javier Arenas and third round pick Jon Asamoah. Pioli's philosophy when it comes to these draft picks is no surprise: You're either with us or you're not.

He said, "The way I've always felt about things like this is that everyone knows when the starting date is and when the starting time is. There's going to be a bunch of other players and coaches there and [if the draft choices] are there, great.

"We know when we're starting and hopefully they know when we're starting."

In other words, they're going to camp whether the draft picks are there or not. Of course, they would prefer the players to be there. The only real question mark at this point is going to be Berry.

We'll find out who's there and who's not at 1:50 p.m. on Friday.
