ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Chiefs fans were out in full force Saturday morning for American Family Fun Day at training camp. The bleachers were overflowing with 6,200 people clad in red and gold, and Kansas City officials took notice.

"The fans were unbelievable," head coach Andy Reid said. "They kind of push you through that first day in pads when you get a little tired in those last couple periods."

But it hasn't been enough to sway the franchise toward committing to St. Joseph after this summer.

The team has five one-year options to return to Missouri Western in 2015 and beyond.

Kansas City's chairman and CEO Clark Hunt was in St. Joe Saturday morning, and he spoke to the media after practice.

Hunt says the decision on whether to return to Missouri Western or look elsewhere comes down to Reid and his coaches.

"I think really, the football side is the most important. Does the football staff, the coaching staff, feel like they're able to have an effective camp? I think there are a lot of positives in terms of staying here, but as I said, it's a decision that we'll make after training camp."

The Chiefs moved training camp to St. Joseph in 2010 from River Falls, Wisconsin.
