Chiefs working out QB Deon Anthony, per report

Kansas City is taking a look at an undrafted free agent who could be an intriguing prospect with speed.


The Kansas City Chiefs are in the midst of OTAs, but that doesn't mean the front office is failing to scour the countryside for fresh talent. The team is working out former Troy quarterback Deon Anthony, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

Anthony (6', 210 pounds) was not at the NFL Combine but posted impressive numbers at his pro day, running the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds and bench-pressing 225 pounds 17 times. In 2014, Anthony did not wow anybody with his numbers, throwing for only five touchdowns and running for another three with 432 yards on the ground.

The Troy standout also worked out for the San Diego Chargers earlier this offseason, but as a wide receiver, per Wilson. With the Chiefs seemingly set on quarterback with Alex Smith, Aaron Murray, Tyler Bray and Chase Daniel, a project at wide receiver seems more likely. Anthony did catch 10 passes for 116 yards last season.
