KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — There is a "Star Wars" expert running post patterns. The son of a pro wrestling great is learning the nuances of blocking. A cancer survivor is huddling with his position coaches.

Welcome to the most interesting rookie minicamp you'll ever find.

There are 69 players running around in shorts on the Kansas City Chiefs practice fields this weekend. Nine of them were drafted and a near-locks to make the team. More than a dozen signed as undrafted free agents. The rest are merely in town for a tryout, hoping to catch the eye of coach Andy Reid or one of his assistants in the few short hours they have together.

All of them have stories. Some are more interesting than others.
