Chase Daniel named Chiefs’ NFLPA player representative

Chase Daniel may be the Chiefs’ backup quarterback, but he is still taking a leadership role in the locker room.

On Friday, the NFL Players Association announced that Daniel, a sixth-year pro, was named the Chiefs’ player rep by his teammates.

Defensive end Kevin Vickerson, a ninth-year pro, and receiver Dwayne Bowe, an eighth-year pro, were named the team’s alternates.

Player reps are the liaison between a team’s players and the NFLPA. They are responsible for upholding their teammates’ rights and helping to enforce the union’s collective-bargaining agreement with the NFL.
