Scott Pioli Says Chiefs Aren't Interested In Former Mizzou WR Danario Alexander

Well, there goes that dream.

For many Kansas City area fans, the thought of bringing in former Mizzou WR Danario Alexander was intriguing. He's got a lot of upside catching 113 balls and over 1,700 yards in his senior season at Missouri but he's also got the three knee surgeries.

"He's not a player we're focused on right now," Pioli told Kevin Kietzmann on 810 WHB's Between The Lines this afternoon. "There are a lot of players in different areas that have strong followings and strong beliefs. It has nothing to do with the guy or who he is as a person. He's a wonderful guy. He's just not...I'm going to be getting this question for years aren't I?"

Pioli obviously understands how people in this area feel about Alexander. In fact, he said a fan yelled at him on a plane recently over Alexander.

Alexander's workout for NFL teams is tomorrow morning and the Rams are scheduled to bring him in for a workout. I've detailed all the Danario Alexander news right here.
