Kansas Jayhawks Tight End Tim Biere Hopes To Make Chiefs Roster

Kansas tight end Tim Biere realizes that he has an uphill battle ahead of him if he wants to make the Kansas City Chiefs roster. But the good news is that the local product has a few key elements working for him as he tries to make his NFL dream come true.

Most undrafted free agents end up going home at the end of the day. The luckiest will make a practice squad, perhaps after being cut once or twice. The best end up making the fringes of an NFL roster and actually breaking through. However those players are outliers and not the lived-out reality for most.

Biere spoke recently at the Chiefs mandatory mini-camp about his chances of making the Chiefs roster. He says he realizes that if he's going to stick, it's going to be through extra efforts to stand out and secure his own corner of the roster via special teams.

"I've made sure to open my eyes and see what they do and how they do it," Biere said of the elders at his position. "They've been around for a while, so I'm just trying to learn and do whatever the coaches need me to do - find a niche and play all the positions on special teams."

He says his experience at Kansas under Turner Gill gives him some flexibility that Scott Pioli seems to like out of his players.

"The first few years of college I was more of a blocker and then I was used as more of a receiver the last two years," Biere said. "I think versatile is kind of what I'm going for."
