The Kansas City Chiefs play their first preseason game on Saturday and this is the opportunity for several guys on this team to prove themselves to the coaches and staff.
The preseason might seem like a bore to some people. The “ones” only play a few series and then their bench time increases during the four-game stretch. “Yawn”, most people would probably say.
Preseason, however, gives the players on the bubble of being cut the chance to fight for their roster spot. It allows them to shine on the field and prove that they can make a contribution to the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2016 regular season.
