According to a report from the Kansas City Star, Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt may be tying to land a spot on the 53-man roster as a wide receiver.
From the Star:
Hunt, along with his son Knobel, was on the field Thursday for the final practice for rookies and free agents and intently watched the drills and practice sessions.
After practice, Hunt, 48, showed his athletic skills by catching footballs fired by the JUGS machine.
Hunt is expected to be on hand for Friday’s first day of full-squad practice. Maybe he’ll be able to cut a signing-bonus check for offensive tackle Eric Fisher, the club’s first-round pick who has yet to reach an agreement on a contract.
The Chiefs do need some more depth at WR.
Perhaps not coincidentally, the team cut WR Mardy Gilyard last night. Eric Fisher’s roster spot is already spoken for, despite the fact that he has yet to sign a contract. Could it be that GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid were so impressed with Hunt that they plan to sign him?

Chiefs owner, Clark Hunt or former Chiefs “receiver,” Sammie Parker?
So here’s a poll:
