KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A self-organized three-day workout by about 45 Kansas City Chiefs players seemed to whet everyone's appetite for real football.

Organized by quarterback Matt Cassel, safety Jon McGraw and a few others, the Chiefs got together on a local high school football field Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and ran routine plays. The public and media were allowed to watch only the last half-hour on Thursday afternoon.

Most of the Chiefs' top players were on hand, including Cassel, Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Johnson and running back Thomas Jones. The workouts were tightly organized and even included an hour of pre-practice meetings each day as team leaders went over plays that would be run. A few of the players admitted they discovered they weren't in as good a shape as they'd thought.
