"There are different levels," Harris said. “Level 8 is the hardest. Level 8 is a slow blink, really hard to see. I’m going up every week. I’m on Level 6. I really have to track the ball at Level 6.

“It takes real focus. That helps me dial in. You really have to when you use those glasses."

One of the redeeming factors of the second and third preseason games is that teams try, at least a little bit, to win. Even a mock game plan, like the one the Chiefs are expected to use Friday, is a reflection of a team’s basic concepts and fundamental building blocks on both sides of the ball.

Seattle, for instance, is going to play a lot of Cover 3 defensively, which is their bread-and-butter coverage. Knowing this, the Chiefs can dial up some basic Cover 3 beaters, and the staff can make evaluations on the players based on how well they execute against simple concepts.

The trade was unusual on a few fronts. The Chiefs and Seahawks swapped straight up, player for player who man similar positions and have like skill sets, D.J. Alexander for Pierre-Louis. No other assets were involved. Also odd was the timing, and not just because it was the eve of training camp.

“I got the call at 7 a.m., I literally woke up to the call,” Pierre-Louis said. “The next day the Seahawks (veterans) were reporting. So that was the shocking part. I got the call at 7 and was on a flight at 12:40.”

“After going through what I went through last season and now having the opportunity to play again, it’s a blessing,” he said. “I’m excited to get to play again. I’m playing at 100 percent now. Last season I was maybe 75. I just didn’t have the endurance that I regained this offseason.”
