Former Wales wing Louis Rees-Zammit hasn’t received universal praise from Kansas City Chiefs fans. While many are impressed by his raw speed, concerns have been raised about how he holds the ball while running.

Rees-Zammit still has time to refine his technique during a busy summer of training. If he shows enough improvement, he could secure a spot on the Chiefs’ 53-man active roster for the upcoming NFL season.

Alternatively, he might be placed on the 16-man practice squad, from which coach Andy Reid can elevate him to the active roster up to three times throughout the season.

One fan wrote: “The mechanics seem there. But the way he’s holding the football scares me a little. Once contact drills come into play or in an actual game, it’s like a fumble waiting to happen.”

Another fan agreed, remarking: “Fumble waiting to happen… holding the ball like a loaf of bread,” while a third added: “I don’t like how he tucks the ball away… makes me nervous”

A third added: “No change of direction with acceleration, short choppy stride…they’ll knock him into next week….”

However, lots of fans had praise for his incredible pace.

One fan wrote: “This boy has serious wheels, blink and you’ll miss him!!”

A second said: “He’s unbelievably fast, it’s laughable,”

“Yesssss, bro’s looking on fire,” added a third fan. “Can’t wait to see him on the field during the season”.


Get ready for a surprising revelation from renowned rugby referee Nigel Owens, as he unveils his list of the top five captains he has officiated.

#5. Chris Robshaw (England)

The flanker is a former English rugby union player who captained the national team from 2012 to 2015.

Known for his exceptional work rate and leadership skills, Robshaw was a dynamic flanker who made a significant impact on the field. He enjoyed a successful club career with Harlequins, where he played for over a decade. Robshaw’s dedication and commitment to the sport earned him numerous accolades and the respect of his peers.

Off the field, he is admired for his philanthropic efforts, using his platform to support various charitable causes.

Owens said: “Some people will be surprised at this one to start off. His misfortune was perhaps to be leading England during a difficult time, but he always gave everything for the cause, encouraging others to follow suit, and he was a nice guy off the pitch.”
