Priest Holmes considers career as broadcaster

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former Kansas City Chiefs star Priest Holmes is studying for a possible new career in broadcasting.

The running back who retired in 2007 participated in the NFL Broadcast Boot Camp in Mount Laurel, N.J., last month.

Broadcaster and former Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil says Holmes showed enough potential that he recommended him for a position with the NFL Network.

The 35-year-old says he might have more success working in a studio than as a game commentator.
