As I mentioned earlier, rookie Tyreek Hill is having a great Training Camp for the Kansas City Chiefs. He continued his amazing performance today by routinely beating almost every defensive back he went up against in drills, and having several big plays in team exercises. The young man is simply drawing praise from anyone and everyone who watches him play.
Another young player who is having a great camp is tight end Ross Travis. The former Penn State basketball player is looking great on the field and shows an excellent understanding of how to use his athletic talents on the field. The Chiefs have been giving him a lot of reps in their three tight end sets and in goal line situations. That’s where he needs to shine in order to make the roster.
The performance of Ross Travis is reminiscent of what we saw a few years ago from another basketball player turned tight end in Demetrius Harris. Harris is also having a good camp on the heels of his contract extension with the Chiefs. It is looking a lot like the Chiefs will be using a very dangerous formation of Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris, and Ross Travis. Expect some highlights.
One notable change in the offense is that the second team reps now seem to be split between newly arrived free agent Nick Foles and Tyler Bray. It would seem that Aaron Murray has been firmly removed from the competition for the top backup spot to Alex Smith. Not good news for him. As far as Bray vs Foles goes…this round apparently went to Tyler Bray.
