Tyler Bray was named in a Yahoo! report that claims Bray and teammate Maurice Couch received financial payments from former Alabama player Luther Davis.

Mississippi State’s Fletcher Cox and Chad Bumphis, and Alabama’s D.J. Flucker were also named in the report.

Bray is said to have received $200 in a Western Union check another $700 via Matthew Schroeder. Yahoo cites Bray’s twitter account as a connection to Schroeder. Tweets suggests Bray spent time on trips, outings to the mall, and at restaurants.

Here’s more from Yahoo on Schroeder:

When contacted by Yahoo Sports, Schroeder affirmed that Bray was a friend and initially agreed to an interview. When informed the story was about Bray’s involvement with Davis, Schroeder said he didn’t know who Davis was. When asked why his name appeared as a recipient on a $700 Western Union transaction from Davis that also listed Bray, Schroeder replied: “Uh, man, I have no comment on that.” Schroeder then declined to continue the interview.

It would seem that Bray, his teammate, and the other players received impermissible benefits while they were in college. While this means nothing to the Chiefs and Bray in terms of discipline, it could become a small distractions. Tennessee, on the other hand, may have some sanctions coming their way from the NCAA.

Something else to consider, and maybe a little more pressing to the Chiefs concerns about Bray:
