Former Chief Finds A Home With The Panthers

Anyone remember Chris Manno?

The Kansas City Chiefs picked him up last year and he spent some time in training camp with the team. He was probably forgotten by most of you but here's a snippet of what he had to say last year after KC signed him:

"I had 15 minutes to get loose and from there we just ran with it," said Manno. "I don't know what happened, something happened and it was good. I got a bunch of bad balls, but dove and caught them."

Chiefs representatives told him they expected him to be quick, but when they told him, "it was one of the best workouts they've ever seen in the last 12 years," his heart started to beat a little faster.

Anyway, he was released by the Chiefs last August and just recently found a home with the Carolina Panthers. He wrote this on his Twitter page:

So I had to wait for it to be released but it's true, I am now a proud CAROLINA PANTHER! So blessed and excited to be a part of such an up and coming, exciting franchise. Looking so forward to getting to work, I give you all my word I will work as hard as possible to earn the respect of my peers and the great Carolina fans. Preciate all the well wishes Ive already received. I'll do my best to get back to all of you.

This concludes your former-Chief watch for the day.
