Source: Halliday trying out with NFL's Chiefs

AS RETIREMENTS GO, Connor Halliday’s will apparently be brief. A source close to the situation tells CF.C that the former Washington State quarterback today begins his quest to land a spot with the the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs – as their practice squad QB.

Connor Halliday’s tryout for the Chiefs’ practice squad will take place today and Wednesday, the source, who requested anonymity, told Cougfan.com.

Halliday is also looking at options in the Canadian Football League as well, said the source.

Halliday did not immediately return CF.C texts requesting comment.

The latest development adds to the list of unanswered questions that began back in May when ESPN and others reported Halliday had "lost his love for football" and was retiring.

Halliday was an undrafted free agent signing of the Washington Redskins earlier but pulled the plug on his NFL quest before it began. He had been working out at the Redskins complex for several days and gave an interview to the Washington Times saying he was excited for that weekend's rookie mini camp, but abruptly retired before the camp began.

It should be an intriguing couple of days in Kansas City.
