Chiefs Are One Of The First NFL Teams To Return To Alabama

Last month Alabama head coach Nick Saban went off on a now infamous against college agents.

"I don't think it's anything but greed that's creating it right now on behalf of the agents," Saban said in a rant at the SEC media days. "The agents that do this – and I hate to say this, but how are they any better than a pimp?

"I have no respect for people who do that to young people. None. How would you feel if they did it to your child?"

In early August, word emerged that Saban was shutting out the NFL. He was no longer letting NFL teams onto the Alabama campus to scout his players during practice. Of course, that couldn't last long considering Saban makes his living convincing players to come to his school because he gives them the best shot at getting into the NFL.

Saban is now letting NFL teams back in and the Kansas City Chiefs were at the first available practice on Wednesday afternoon. The New York Giants, among other unidentifiable NFL reps, were also at Alabama's practice this afternoon for what is believed to be the first time a NFL team has gone out to Alabama since Saban's ban.

Saban and Chiefs GM Scott Pioli have previously worked together and have a relationship. The Chiefs appear to have hit on Alabama CB Javier Arenas in the 2010 NFL draft.

Considering Alabama's success over the past couple years, I'd take a few more of the Crimson Tide.
