Five Observations from Monday’s Practice

Five Observations from Monday's Practice

4. Defensive back Zayne Anderson hauled in two interceptions.

Anderson made a pair of picks on Monday, both of which took place during 7-on-7 drills. The first was a heads-up, athletic play that saw Anderson break on a tipped pass and haul it in for the pick. Then, just a bit later, Anderson was back at it with a leaping interception in traffic deep down the field. Anderson high-pointed the pass, out-jumping the other players around him to haul in an impressive pick.

It was a strong day for Anderson as the second-year defensive back makes his case to earn a roster spot.

5. It was Alumni Day at camp.

Nearly two dozen former players – from Louie Aguiar to Mitchell Schwartz – were invited to Monday’s practice for the annual “Alumni Day” event, which provided the former players with an opportunity to watch practice before heading to the field and down the huddle with the current squad.

“The Chiefs organization is second to none in terms of how they value their history. A lot of organizations only focus on the present, but here, the celebration of former players has always been a priority,” said the former Chiefs’ wide receiver and current Chiefs Radio Network broadcaster Danan Hughes. “To be able to connect with the current team in such a special way is just awesome.”

The event featured players spanning six decades of Chiefs’ football, and while their days on the football field may be over, the organization ensured that they still felt part of the team on Monday.

The Chiefs will return to practice on Tuesday for another padded practice. For more information on training camp or for a schedule of practices, click here.
