Coffee with the Chiefs – Tryout for rookie QB


Good morning, Addicts! What day is it? HUMP DAYYYYYYYYY. I don’t care if they rerun that damn commercial with the camel yelling that until 2030, I will still laugh hysterically every time. In regards to the Kansas City Chiefs, they continue to move toward their Week 3 preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. The starters will likely play the better part – if not all – of three quarters.

Head coach Andy Reid has already said that Kansas City is treating this like a regular season game, from the practice schedule to preparations. It should be an interesting game from the standpoint of how the offense plays despite some players being gone to injury at the moment.

Here’s the news you need to know:

Chiefs give undrafted quarterback Connor Halliday tryout Jeff Nusser of CougCenter

"Halliday mysteriously “retired” from football back in May after abruptly leaving Washington D.C., where he was scheduled to begin his career as an undrafted free agent with the NFL team there. While it seemed hard to believe at the time that he could be totally recovered from his awful broken leg and still just give up the game, Halliday offered no explanation, and Mike Leach even said at Pac-12 media days that Halliday really had just walked away."

Kansas City rookies recall college games against Marcus MariotaAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Yet he accurately recalls the one he had in 2013 against Oregon and quarterback Marcus Mariota. He remembers that one because it was a big game for Oregon State and, well, it happened against Mariota, who would win the Heisman Trophy the next season and become the No. 2 overall draft pick by the Tennessee Titans shortly after."

Practice recap 8/25: All the important stuffB.J. Kissel of

"It’s becoming a regular occurrence, but rookie first-round pick Marcus Peters made two interceptions during an 11-on-11 team period on Tuesday, one of which Eric Berry deflected into the air and was caught by Peters. Peters broke up several other passes as well. He was known as a playmaker when he was drafted, and that’s exactly what he’s shown so far on the field for the Chiefs."
