Nine-year old Chandler Fenner asked if he could try football before youth league track began. His father, Maurice, had a quick response.
"He told me `speed kills,'" said Fenner. "Speed makes all the difference. And that's the same message I've been getting up here (as a member of the Chiefs)."

He has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as an NFL free agent, and will begin training camp later in the month. To read the full profile on Fenner from Nick Toney of KCChiefs.com click here
