The Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals are making waves today with the plan to practice together ahead of their upcoming preseason game this weekend in a move to bring attention to both teams and allow the personnel to face some uncommon faces in practice in the hopes to help develop skills differently. Both teams are excited about the PR chances in St. Joseph, Missouri.
"Training camp is about us continuing our development and evaluating our players," Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said. "We are very excited to be hosting another NFL team in St. Joseph. This will give us another opportunity to further evaluate our team under a different set of circumstances before we get into our preseason schedule."
The Cardinals have been on a bit of a whirlwind with the recent Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio last weekend as well, but the Cardinals head coach seemed to be unphased by it all.
"There are many benefits to this arrangement and we appreciate Coach Crennel and the Chiefs working to make this happen," Ken Whisenhunt said. "Logistically, it makes a lot of sense since we play Sunday night in Canton and then Friday night at Kansas City, but I've always found there's also great value in getting work against another team in a setting like this. We're looking forward to it."
The teams will feature the public practice at 7:15pm CT
