Mann invited to Chiefs' mini-camp

The Wichita Eagle

Victor Mann is getting a chance.

The former Kansas State fullback went undrafted by the NFL, but he still has a chance to land with a team.

A local team, too.

"I'll be in Kansas City for their mini-camp this weekend," Mann said via e-mail Tuesday.

According to an official in the Chiefs' public relations department, Mann is one of 10 to 12 prospects invited to what amounts to a three-day tryout beginning Friday for an opportunity to secure a free-agent contract. Technically, it's a mini-camp; but it's only for rookies and select veterans.

Mann will see a familiar face or two from the Big 12 -- Kansas linebacker Nick Reid will be there. Reid signed a free-agent deal with the Chiefs immediately following the draft after going unselected.

If everything goes well for Mann, he could sign a contract Sunday night with the Chiefs.

The 6-foot-2, 265-pound Mann was K-State's offensive MVP in 2005, finishing with 19 carries for 107 yards. He also hauled in 11 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown.

Kansas City has two fullbacks on its roster, and both are undrafted free agents. Mann is familiar with one -- former K-Stater Travis Wilson, whom Mann backed up in 2002 and 2003. The other is Auburn's Jake Slaughter.
