Former Central Missouri TE to Attend Chiefs Workouts

The Chiefs have invited an out work former Central Missouri tight end to workouts, which are being put on by QB Matt Cassel.

If DeMarco Cosby had selected any other moment to wander into that Overland Park gym for a workout this spring, his hopes of signing with an NFL team might be waning.

But Cosby, a former Lincoln Prep and Central Missouri tight end, chose to work out just as a group of Chiefs were gathering at the gym for the same purpose. And it didn’t take long for those Chiefs to see the 6-foot-2, 245-pound Cosby and figure out that he was a football player.

They invited him to their conditioning sessions, and later the practices organized by quarterback Matt Cassel.

“I just jumped in, and I’ve been doing it ever since,” Cosby said. “I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Cosby, who went undrafted despite catching 71 passes and scoring 11 touchdowns as a Central Missouri senior last fall, is running pass routes for Cassel and Tyler Palko. Doing so alongside receivers like Dwayne Bowe and Dexter McCluster will, Cosby hopes, give him an advantage over other undrafted rookies when the lockout is over and he signs with an NFL team.
