Newly acquired Jaguars WR Chris Conley played his first four NFL seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs, now as a member of the Jaguars he has been passing along tips to the Jags defense in an effort to prepare them for the Chiefs high powered offense. The Jags also signed QB Chase Litton off the Chiefs practice squad earlier this week, a player who has been reported as having an extremely firm grasp of the Chiefs Offense. The Jaguars pulled a similar stunt in 2011 as they signed QB Ryan Stanzi off waivers two days after he was released by the Chiefs leading up to the season opener between the two teams. The Chiefs went on to win that game 28-2.
Kansas City Head Coach Andy Reid does not seem too worried about the situation. “(Litton) is a smart guy, so I’m sure they’ve quizzed him on [the playbook]." He said via the Kansas City Star. “You’ve got 300 plays to choose from. If they can predict those, they’re really good.”
Reigning league MVP Patrick Mahomes gave his take on Chris Conley sharing information, “That goes on all around the league,” he said via The Kansas City Star. “You’ve got a lot of guys, they have Chris Conley there, that know some of the stuff we do. But the biggest thing with Coach Reid is you can never get a handle on it because he’s going to keep adding and keep innovating every single week.”
Last year the Chiefs defeated the Jaguars 30-14 in Arrowhead Stadium.
