Chiefs wide receivers Dwayne Bowe and Jerheme Urban and tight end Brad Cottam were among the first to answer the call. They joined Cassel this week in Kansas City for some informal pitch-and-catch sessions at a local high school.
That’s about all the Chiefs can get done while they are barred from entering the team’s practice facility because of the owner-imposed lockout.

“Honestly, I just couldn’t sit there,” he says. “I’m like, you want to know my (expletive) issues? I can’t sit here for four hours and (expletive) tell you (expletive) my issues. OK?
