The Kansas City Chiefs rookies are about to head to camp.

Today marks the start of a three-day rookie minicamp. It’s just the rooks, as well as a number of tryout players. The camp will be at The University of Kansas Hospital Training Complex, May 10-12.

Here is the specific schedule:


Friday, May 10 Rookie Minicamp Practice at 1:45 p.m.

Saturday, May 11 Rookie Minicamp Practice at 1:45 p.m.

Sunday, May 12 Rookie Minicamp Practice at 11:25 a.m.

Head coach Andy Reid will address the media after practice on the first and last days of the camp. These practices will also be open to the media so we should get a pretty good picture painted for us of how things are going.

The most interesting aspect of this camp will be the tryout players. Since this is rookies only and since the Chiefs only drafted eight players and signed a handful of undrafted free agents, the team has invited a number of other players at certain positions to attend the camp on a tryout basis. These players are not signed to contracts but will get the shot to show the Chiefs’ coaching staff what they can do live and in person.

Every offseason, there are players around the NFL that make an impression as undrafted free agents or tryout players. It will be fun to see if any future Chiefs emerge from this weekend’s camp.
