Leon Williams Trying Out for Kansas City Chiefs

Eight draft picks, 15 college free agents, five first-year veterans and 10 tryout players make up the 38-man roster for this weekend’s Chiefs Rookie Minicamp.

Practices begin Friday at the team’s training facility and run through Sunday afternoon. Helmets will be worn and the offense will line up against the defense, but no contact is permitted.

Minicamp is not open to the public, but media will be allowed to cover practice sessions on Friday and Sunday. Rookies may stay in Kansas City and join veterans in the offseason workout program beginning on Monday as long as their college semester has concluded.

Veteran free agent LB Leon Williams, a former fourth-round pick of the Browns when Romeo Crennel was serving as Cleveland’s head coach, was also invited to camp on a tryout basis. Williams has seen action in 57 games (12 starts), recording 154 career tackles and 5.0 career sacks.
Williams was out of football last season, but played in 11 games with the Cowboys in 2010.

Rookie minicamp also permits first-year veterans with no pension credits (less than three games on the 53-man roster or injured reserve in a single season) to participate.
