Chiefs Quick Hitters: Hall Loves Playing In Denver

Hall has had success in Denver cathing the ball.

Chiefs Notes:
Morten Andersen signed with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday. The 44-year old kicker had been rumored since the Chiefs announced last Friday that they'd give the kicking chores to rookie Lawrence Tynes that Minnesota wanted to sign him.

Andsersen who has claimed that he wants to kick until he reaches 50, thought that he follow in the footsteps of aging veteran Gary Anderson who's career was rejuvinated with the Vikings several years ago.

The Chiefs lost guard Darnell Alford off their practice squad today when the St. Louis Rams signed him to their 53-man roster. Alford was signed to the Chiefs practice squad on Monday but the Rams need offensive line help after they announced that Kyle Turley is likley finished for the year. The Rams did sign Orlando Pace on Monday just in time to start the season.

The Chiefs added two players to their practice squad on Tuesday. Center Jonathan Ingram and Guard Tim Stuber.

Ingram was a standout player in NFL Europe and Stuber has tried to get back on an NFL roster since being released by the Carolina Panthers during the 2002 season.

It appears that Dante Hall will start opposite Eddie Kennison on Sunday Night. Though Johnnie Morton has resumed full practice duties, Vermeil indicated today that he'd lean toward starting Hall.

Hall had his finest offensive day as a receiver against the Broncos two years ago when he left littered Denver defenders on the field on both of his amazing touchdown run and catches.

Cornerback Dexter McCleon should return to the staring lineup on Sunday and that's good news for the defense.

Quote Of The Day - Vermeil on Morton Andersen:
"It's time to move on. I'd love to have Morten Andersen 10 years ago. I'd give him every bottle of wine he wants. But it's a different time."
