St. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs wrapped up day 12 of training camp Saturday. As fans watched practice, they also saw several familiar faces in the stands. 

Saturday was Alumni Day at Chiefs Training Camp.

Former Chiefs Return Specialist and Wide Receiver, also know as the 'X Factor,' or 'human joy stick,' Dante Hall said he was ready to come out of retirement to play for Coach Andy Reid and catch a few passes from star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. 

"Trent had a nice ball now but I think I would want to play with Patrick because of his scrambling ability. Guys would always have to you know, keep an eye in the backfield as he's taking off, but yeah, to catch one of those nice Hiroshima bombs from Pat Mahomes, that would be awesome so, I wonder if he could out throw me, some quarterbacks you know, can out throw you and some cant, so I wonder what his range is," said Hall. 

Former Kansas City Chiefs Walter White, Gary Spani, Deron Cherry and more returned to training camp to watch practice, take pictures with fans and sign autographs. Several also shared their thoughts about the Chiefs performance from Thursday nights game against Houston. 

"He wants to evaluate players, he wants to see what his players can do in pressure situations," said Dave Lindstrom, Former Chiefs Defensive End. 

"You know, the first game was difficult, I think that you're going to see a different game you know, with a little bit more practice time and then of course the third game is going to be the key game and then we get Green Bay here which will really be something you know," Ken Kremer, Former Chiefs Defensive Tackle. 

Chiefs alumni were also reminding fans after the loss on Thursday, that it is only the preseason and they are looking forward to the second preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons on August 17.
