Over 35 Players Gather for Chiefs Workouts

The Chiefs realize that repeating as AFC West champs in 2011 won’t be easy, which is why it’s good to see that more than 35 players gathered this past week for workouts.

More than 35 players — or two-thirds of the team’s normal 53-man roster — gathered for the third consecutive day on the football practice field at Bishop Miege High School. No, they didn’t wear pads, and no, they weren’t hitting. But stripped down, this was football.

“It’s close enough,” veteran linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “We’re definitely getting a lot of work done.”

Quarterback Matt Cassel envisioned this and put the plans in motion. As the NFL’s owner-imposed lockout enters its fourth full month, Cassel called on most of his teammates, many of them traveling from whatever far-away location that they call home during the offseason. Johnson traveled from Texas. Tight end Leonard Pope came from Georgia.
