Alex Tanney’s “Trick Shot QB” video, begins with him firing a football through an open house window and into the hands of a person in the back of a pick up truck as it speeds past his house. Not sure how many takes were required to get it, but regardless it is impressive to watch.Trick shot video.
Like that house window in the video, Tanney’s “window of opportunity” to make an NFL team is still open. I blogged in May HERE that Tanney was trying out with the Buffalo Bills however they did not sign him. This week the KC Chiefs signed Tanney and brought him into their OTAs as the 4th QB.
Evidently Chiefs QB Coach Jim Zorn, a former NFL QB, was impressed with Tanney. HERE
Tanney played at Division III school, Monmouth College, where he undeniably put up some impressive passing stats. He also comes to the NFL with ideal size of 6 foot 4 and 220 pounds, a strong arm and as his viral video demonstrates, uncanny passing accuracy.
If all that is enough to land him a spot on an NFL 53 man roster, remains to be seen. But as Tanney demonstrates in his video, long shots are his specialty.
7/18/13 UPDATE: Tanney works out for the Cowboys.
