The Kansas City Chiefs are in attendance this week for the practices for this weekend’s East-West Shrine Game.
For those who don’t know, the East-West Shrine Game is a college football star game that has been played every year since 1925, with the proceeds going to charity. In fact, Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel actually coached in the game the January before he was hired to be the team’s defensive coordinator.
The game features some talent from across the country and Canada. There are sometimes top quality players featured in the game but usually the rosters are made up of fringe players trying to make one final case to NFL scouts that they should be drafted.
According to Walter Football, the Chiefs interviewed two players after today’s practice, speaking with Army linebacker Steven Erzinger and South Carolina defensive tackle Travian Robertson. While the Chiefs will likely talk to most of the players this week, it is still fun to track which positions the team seems to be focusing on. I think many would put DT high on KC’s priority list so it is good to see them talking to Robertson, who weighs in at 305.
We’ll keep you updated on any other news coming out of the game.
