Back when the Kansas City Chiefs conducted training camp in River Falls, WI they would occasionally meet up with the Minnesota Vikings, who conducted training camp nearby, for a scrimmage. The Chiefs haven't done that since 2008 training camp.

According to a report from Lance Snow of KQ2 in St. Joe, that could be changing. Kurt McGuffin, the AD at Missouri Western, where the Chiefs conduct training camp, tells KQ2 that members of the Arizona Cardinals front office were in town recently to "evaluate the training facilities" for a potential visit to Chiefs training camp.

No word on how long the Cardinals would visit or how the two teams would work together, if a deal can be worked out. Nothing is beyond the early stages of discussions at this point, according to the report.

The Chiefs don't play Arizona this year.

I'd be down for something like this. From a fans perspective, it would be a lot cooler to see the Chiefs scrimmage against another team instead of themselves. From the team's perspective, it's beneficial to scrimmage against someone you haven't faced twice a day, every day during training camp.
