[Kansas City.com] Do not be fooled by the smiles, the gushing or the fact Az-Zahir Hakim had dinner with the Vermeils last week and Carol Vermeil pointed out how much their old friend had matured.
Hakim will be in Kansas City today, he’ll compete for a receiver spot, but that’s all coach Dick Vermeil is promising.
“A position isn’t going to be handed to him in a Christmas package,” Vermeil said Tuesday. “He’s going to have to compete, and he knows that. I didn’t really actively recruit hard to get this guy. I wanted him to come on his own.”
“There’s more receivers on our field today that can compete for one of those positions than we’ve ever had since I’ve been here. So it will be fun to watch.”
