KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Normally, we can’t condone adults going mad about badgering players for autographs at an NFL training camp.
Leave it to the kids.
But we’ll make an exception for former Missouri and Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel, who put on a bucket hat and had a little fun at Bears training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois.
Daniel acted as if he didn’t know teammates, peppering a rookie with questions about his signing basis and leading children in chants of players’ names.
When second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky dropped by to sign for the kids, Daniel called him Tyler Bray, another former Chiefs quarterback who followed Matt Nagy to Chicago during the offseason.
Nagy, who was the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator last two seasons and served as quarterbacks coach under Andy Reid from 2013-15, was hired as the Bears’ coach in January.
He appeared unaware that he was signing an autograph for Daniel, who spent three seasons in Kansas City under Nagy.
Among the other funny moments not to miss, Daniel repeatedly addresses former Kansas State offensive lineman Cody Whitehair as Eric Kush, yet another former Chiefs player on Nagy’s squad in the Windy City.
