National Football League: Kansas City Chiefs
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. Lofty expectations and a lot of newness. Those were two things Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid couldnt ignore and didnt try to talk around as he addressed the assembled media at Missouri Western State University on Sunday afternoon.
Chiefs rookies, quarterbacks and select veterans reported to training camp on Sunday to start a brief introductory period before veterans report on Wednesday. The teams first sessions open to the public take place Thursday.
The fresh faces may not outnumber the familiar ones, but the overall atmosphere will certainly tilt toward newness in Chiefs camp. Not only were 40 of the 90 players on the roster as of Sunday acquired this offseason, but several of the key figures during Reids six-year tenure have gone elsewhere.
