Default Youtube Trick Shot QB is signed by the Chiefs

Thought this was a pretty cool story.

Former Lexington High School and Monmouth College quarterback Alex Tanney signed a contract with the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs shortly before the Chiefs’ organized team activity (OTA) workout on Tuesday.

Tanney was signed as the final player on Kansas City’s 90-man roster. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder will work out with the Chiefs and quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn, a former NFL signal-caller, prior to the start of training camp in late July at St. Joseph, Mo.

The fourth quarterback listed on the roster, Tanney will compete for a regular-season (53-man) roster spot with eight-year veteran Matt Cassell, six-year veteran Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi, a two-year pro out of Iowa.

Tanney is the NCAA’s all-time all-division touchdown passing leader. He was a three-time Midwest Conference Offensive Player of the Year and the 2009 Melberger Award winner at Monmouth.

Signing with the Chiefs comes after Tanney attended the Buffalo Bills’ mini-camp workouts in May. The Bills signed veteran Vince Young as their third quarterback on the opening day of mini-camp.

“His (Tanney’s) accuracy and decision making is excellent,” Monmouth coach Steve Bell said. “Learning the NFL playbook should be similar to making the transition from high school to college.

“It will be more extensive than a college playbook, but Alex is a quick study, and I’m sure he’ll adjust quickly.”
