The Kansas City Chiefs signed free-agent quarterback Alex Tanney on Tuesday. Never heard of him? Here we go:
The undrafted rookie from Monmouth College set an NCAA Division III record with 14,249 passing yards; an NCAA mark with 157 touchdowns; and tossed only 30 picks in college -- but few witnessed any of that action. It's Tanney's freaky compilation of trick throws on YouTube that put his name on the board.
Take a look: As the homemade film opens, Tanney -- looking like he just rolled out of bed -- wings a football through a living room window into the snowy distance, landing it in the back of a moving truck. When he's not busy pestering motorists, he's slinging the pigskin off city rooftops and nailing full-court shots (with a football) inside Monmouth's gymnasium. Itâs worth five minutes of your time.
If he can turn this magic loose in a game situation, Tanney might stand a chance in Kansas City.
