ST. LOUIS (AP) -- If Dante Hall played against the Kansas City
Chiefs in the regular season, it would definitely hold some
importance. But the St. Louis Rams' new return man isn't too
excited about a preseason matchup with the team that let him go.
Hall doesn't view tomorrow night's annual Governor's Cup matchup
as a chance to prove Chiefs coach Herman Edwards wrong. The Rams
acquired Hall in April for a fifth-round pick. He has returned 11
kicks for touchdowns in his career, but those numbers have declined
the last two seasons.
The game will be noteworthy for the Chiefs in at least one
regard. Running back Larry Johnson expects to get his first playing
time in the preseason. He ended a 25-day holdout before signing the
richest contract in franchise history.
