The squeaky wheel gets the grease. LaVance Taylor, an undrafted running back from the Central Missouri Mules (D-II), knows this.
Taylor squeaked a 12-minute highlight reel of himself to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday.
On Friday, he had himself a deal:
Kansas City needed extra depth in the backfield after "Keshawn Hill—the only running back in attendance during the early portion of camp—went down with a hamstring injury," per Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star.
Taylor taught us all a valuable lesson: It can't hurt to ask.
Good for him.

Unfortunately for Taylor, his stint with the Chiefs didn't last very long.
