Dressler became a star up in the CFL, helping Saskatchewan to a Grey Cup championship last year. Now, he's trying to get used to the transition of playing in the NFL.

Weston Dressler/Kansas City Wide Receiver: “There's definitely some bigger guys out there. There's gonna be a lot more contact, we'll put the pads on here in a couple days. Get kind of acclimated to that part of the game. We've had hands on a little bit the last few days but not quite like what we'll see with pads on.”

The Chiefs first pre-season game is a week from Thursday at home against the Bengals.
