Custom Tyreek Hill Jersey Large

Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill calls himself “The Cheetah.”

No one else in the NFL could say that with a straight face.

“Special, special, special speed,” Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack said.

NFL Next Gen Stats began tracking the league’s fastest ball carriers in 2016. That year, Hill ran 23.24 mph and 22.77 mph on plays 10 weeks apart. No one in the league has topped either mark since.

“It’s a different speed,” said Bears coach Matt Nagy, who coached Hill in 2016-17. “There’s no one in the NFL that has that speed. They might think they have that speed, but they don’t.”

Not the Bears’ Tarik Cohen or Taylor Gabriel or any of the NFL’s other speed demons.

Hill will test safeties Eddie Jackson and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix all night Sunday.

“Not just our safeties — a lot of safeties,” Nagy said. “He can fly. Every team knows that. Every defense knows it. We’re well aware of that.”

Hill comes to town at a unique time for the Bears’ two starting safeties. Jackson is trying to justify his Pro Bowl berth, which was announced this week, despite having only one interception all season. Clinton-Dix, a pending free agent, has two games left to prove he’s worthy of the lengthy contract that eluded him last offseason.

The Chiefs average 28.1 points per game, fourth-most in the NFL and the most of any team the Bears have played this season. In their last home game, the Bears shut down the Cowboys, who still lead the NFL with 434 yards per game.

Sunday’s game will have more at stake symbolically. The safeties will be the last line of defense against quarterback Patrick Mahomes poster-izing the Bears on national television — and rubbing his 2017 draft selection in the noses of every Bears fan still upset the Bears traded up to draft Mitch Trubisky instead.

“He’s like a fighter,” Mack said of Mahomes. “You see it on the film. He’s breaking tackles and throwing the ball down the field. You can tell he keeps his eyes down the field.”

Mahomes often looks for Hill when he does. Hill is only 5-10, 185 pounds, but he manages to play even bigger.

“He’s his own type of player,” Bears slot cornerback Buster Skrine said. “He can jump, too, being a smaller guy.”

Hill, who was named to his fourth Pro Bowl in as many seasons, is one reason Mahomes makes running the Chiefs’ offense look so easy.

“Knowing his speed — knowing he’s a vertical threat, guys kind of get scared and give that space and back up,” Jackson said. “So a lot of stuff comes open underneath.”

Tight end Travis Kelce was a stud before the Chiefs ever signed Hill, but the two have proven a deadly combination. With safeties worried about Hill going deep, Kelce is able to work freely in the slot and the middle of the field. This season, he’s seventh in the league — and tops among tight ends — with 1,131 receiving yards.

“It stresses the defense,” Skrine said. “It definitely keeps your safety back. You can’t be as aggressive as a safety. It stresses your defense. It gives people opportunities underneath to get a one-on-one matchup.”

Or they go deep.

Hill’s longest catch of the season this year is a 57-yard touchdown pass. The Bears’ longest is a 53-yarder by Gabriel.

Hill has five catches of 40-plus yards. The entire Bears team has two.

That’s some speed.

“Maybe 2.0 DeSean Jackson,” Clinton-Dix said, looking for a comparison. “They call him ‘Cheetah’ for a reason. He’s explosive when he gets the ball in his hands. We just have to be physical, man, and get him on the ground as soon as possible. We’ve got to do our best to contain this guy.”

Custom Demarcus Robinson Jersey Large

Kansas City could be the site of a 2020 comeback for free agent wide receiver Dez Bryant.

On Sunday night, the All-Pro receiver was asked by a fan on Twitter about a comeback to his former team, the Dallas Cowboys. While Bryant did confirm that he would entertain a reunion in Dallas next season, he also listed the Kansas City Chiefs among four other contenders he is open to playing for.

Follow the Heavy on Chiefs Facebook page for the latest breaking news, rumors, and content!

The 31-year-old wideout hasn’t played meaningful NFL football in two years. Bryant did sign with the New Orleans Saints in November 2018, however, a torn Achilles tendon during his second practice with the team ended his season before it could even begin.

Prior to New Orleans, Bryant spent his entire seven-year career with the Cowboys who selected the Oklahoma State product with the first round (24th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft. Named to three Pro Bowls throughout his career, the 6’2,” 220-pound playmaker has 531 receptions, 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns to his name – including a career-high 16 scores during his only All-Pro campaign in 2014.

Back on July 30, Bryant tweeted that he has “no interest in playing football right now,” citing his mental health as a contributing factor in the decision.

About a month later, the Cowboys all-time receiving touchdown leader tweeted that he’d turned down a lucrative multi-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, again citing his mental and physical health. The tweet has since been deleted.

“I turned down 30+ million from the ravens… all because how I felt and I wasn’t going to disrespect their organization and myself,” Bryant wrote on August 25. “I know what I can do if my mind and body is on the right track.”

In early November, however, Bryant shared that he was a couple weeks away from reaching out to NFL teams looking to boost their receiving corps. Given his current status as a free agent, it appears that no team took him up on his offer.

Outside of 1,200+ receiving yards from All-Pro TE Travis Kelce, Kansas City has relied on major contributions from five primary receivers this season – Tyreek Hill (799), Sammy Watkins (665), Mecole Hardman (508), Demarcus Robinson (425), and Byron Pringle (170).

With Kelce under contract through the 2021 season and speedsters Hill and Hardman signed until 2023, the Chiefs’ core pass catchers should remain intact for at least two more seasons. Following the conclusion of the 2019 season, the 25-year-old Robinson, who has put together a career year, is the only core receiver projected to become an unrestricted free agent.

The wild card that could determine the need for Dez Bryant’s services, however, is Sammy Watkins. Speculation surrounding the 26-year-old’s future in Kansas City has grown as the season has progressed. The former No. 4 overall pick is under contract through next season with a projected 2020 salary cap hit of $21 million, up from his current cap hit of $19.2 million.

Watkins’ contract structure allows the Chiefs a relatively cheap out after this season, though. Should Kansas City choose to release the sixth-year wideout, they would only incur $7 million in dead cap money, but would receive $14 million in cap savings. If the interest is mutual between Bryant and the Chiefs this coming offseason, the team’s financial decisions on Robinson and Watkins will be a telling sign of what’s to come.

Custom Andrew Wylie Jersey Large

PLATTSBURGH — David J. Bova has been sentenced to 25-years-to-life for the murder of Magen Goyette.

Bova, 31, along with his defense attorney James Tyner, of Latham, heard Judge William Favreau’s ruling in the Clinton County Courthouse Thursday afternoon.

Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie, prosecutor of the case, first outlined that the people hoped for maximum sentences on all charges before introducing several members of Goyette’s family who wished to read letters to Favreau, including Magen’s mother, Michelle Goyette.

‘TRUSTED THIS MAN’

Michelle Goyette, who was driving the truck that her daughter was riding in when Bova committed the murder, read a letter written by her and Magen’s father, George Goyette.

“This is the most difficult reality we could ever be in,” Michelle Goyette said. “Our family trusted this man. He was welcome to enter our home and our lives. Magen was truly one of a kind. Our family was the center of her world.”

Two other letters were read on behalf of other family members.

‘SHOULD HAVE

WALKED AWAY’

Wylie also brought up several points from the pre-sentencing investigation report, including that it had been found that Bova fired four rounds at the truck Michelle and Magen Goyette were riding in March 13.

One shot hit Magen Goyette in the head, killing her, while the others were embedded in the vehicle, some in the driver’s side.

“It was a crime that David Bova could have and should have walked away from,” Wylie said.

‘TRULY SORRY’

Tyner made brief comments on the case, but said that because Bova had already admitted he was guilty and showed remorse, he wanted to let Bova speak for himself before Favreau handed down a sentence.

“I am truly sorry for the events that happened on March 13,” Bova said. “I never meant to hurt anybody.”

This case was originally set to go to trial on Oct. 15, but Bova instead pleaded guilty that day.

“I do appreciate that you did come into this court and saved the family a long protracted trial,” Favreau said.

But not enough to be lenient.

FINES, SENTENCINGS

On top of the 25-years-to-life for the second-degree murder charge, Favreau sentenced Bova to 20 years with five years post-release supervision for second-degree attempted murder, 10 years with five years post-release supervision for second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, 15 years with five years post-release supervision for first-degree criminal use of a firearm and one year for second-degree menacing.

All sentences will be served concurrently.

Fines against Bova totalled $21,000, as well as a $300 surcharge, a $50 DNA charge, a $25 crime victims charge and $5,530.50 of restitution for the costs of Goyette’s funeral.

ORDER OF PROTECTIONS

Favreau also enacted an order of protection protecting Michelle and George Goyette for eight years following Bova’s release, if and when he gets out.

Bova murdered Goyette in the Town of Black Brook on March 13.

The killing followed several verbal altercations between the pair the night before and the morning of the 13th, according to a statement Bova gave to State Police.

According to the same statement, given by Bova after his arrest, he used a semi-automatic 9 mm Hi-Point rifle to shoot at the black Chevrolet pickup truck Goyette was riding in as it drove toward him on Silver Lake Road in Black Brook, with him adding, “I’m not sure if I hit the truck or anyone in it.”

Goyette, 30, died of a gunshot wound to the head shortly after the incident.

Custom Dustin Colquitt Jersey Large

Dustin Colquitt, with a leg and heart of gold, has been a crucial part of the Kansas City Chiefs franchise on and off the football field. For the second consecutive season, Colquitt has been selected to represent the Chiefs as their Walter Payton Man of the Year award nominee. It will be his third nomination for this award.

The award has long been considered one of the most prestigious honors in the NFL. On Thursday, it was announced that Colquitt was selected to represent Kansas City among the nominees. The award originally began in 1970, and intends to honor an NFL player for his esteemed performance on and off the field. Each team selects a player to represent their franchise and there’s no one more deserving than Colquitt.

In a statement through the Chiefs, Clark Hunt had some incredible words to say about the Chiefs’ long-time punter.

“For 15 years, Dustin Colquitt has been a pillar of the Chiefs organization and the Kansas City community, and we are thrilled that he will once again represent the Chiefs as our nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “Over the course of his career, Dustin has developed into one of the top punters in NFL history, and his character and humility have made him one of the leaders in our locker room for many years. But Dustin’s commitment to the Kansas City community is what truly sets him apart. Through his leadership at TeamSmile and his involvement with Fuel Up to Play 60, Athletes in Action and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Dustin has shown tremendous dedication to improving the lives of youth in Kansas City, and he is once again a deserving candidate for one of the most prestigious honors in sports.”

Colquitt talked about what he’s learned since his previous nomination in 2018.

“The Kansas City Chiefs Community Outreach team is proactive in finding individuals and worthy organizations to support within our community. Over the past 15 seasons with the club, I have learned the fastest way to make our NFL communities a better place to live, work and play is to spend time with the people who make this a special place, uplift those with the greatest need, and be generous with things we have been gifted with,” Colquitt said. “After spending time around the Payton family last year, I realized they graced us with the blueprint on how to make the communities we love a better place.”

Chiefs Kingdom can help Colquitt inch one step closer to receiving a $25,000 donation for a charity of their choosing. Supporters can cast their votes by using #WPMOYChallenge on Twitter with Colquitt’s last name somewhere in the post between Dec. 12 and Jan. 12.

TeamSmile is Colquitt’s charity of choice, and he has been a long-time supporter of the non-profit. For 12 years, Colquitt has worked with TeamSmile and is a member of the organization’s Board of Directors. Tune in to the NFL Honors ceremony on Feb. 1 to see if Colquitt has been named the winner of this year’s Walter Payton Man of the Year honors.

Custom Chad Henne Jersey Large

On Sunday, Ryan Fitzpatrick joined the elite Miami Dolphins company when he joined Dan Marino in the team’s all-time record book. His four touchdown, 400-yard performance was enough to get it done.

Fitzpatrick became only the second player in Miami Dolphins history to have four touchdowns and 400 yards passing in a game. The other of course, Dan Marino who did it seven times. Thanks to Josh Houtz for pointing this out on Twitter.

Fans questioned the motives behind the Dolphins signing Fitzpatrick as a free agent last off-season. It wasn’t a “tanking” type move. Over his career, Fitzpatrick has been wildly inconsistent. Easily throwing for multiple touchdowns one week and multiple interceptions the next. This year, he was more consistently good than sporadically bad.

Sunday was a special day for Fitzpatrick who was joined on the sideline pre-game by his wife and seven kids. He played a little catch with them and then played a lot of catch with his receivers as the Dolphins improved to four wins.

Throughout the year, Fitzpatrick has played like a little kid in the backlot of school. Every touchdown celebrated like it was his first when it is likely closer to his last. His future in Miami is uncertain but he has shown enough to warrant staying through 2020.

He is under contract through the 2020 season and there is no reason that he should not stick around. As a starter, he will be a bridge to whomever the Dolphins believe to be their future. As a backup, he will be a valuable veteran to have in the locker room.

In a way, Fitzpatrick is this decade’s Chad Pennington who ironically came to the Dolphins in 2008 at the end of that decade. Pennington didn’t bring much more than a veteran presence after 2008 but maybe Fitzpatrick can. Not so much in wins but if the Dolphins can get a future QB on the roster, unlike Pennington having to work with Chad Henne, then maybe the long-term hopes for the Dolphins will be better.

Custom Anthony Hitchens Jersey Large

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There’s something happening to the Kansas City Chiefs that can’t be ignored as we roll into December. They’re creating more frustration for opposing quarterbacks, causing more turnovers when the opportunities arise and cultivating a culture that hasn’t been consistently seen in these parts in some time. It used to be that this team’s only chance of winning a championship came down to a prolific offense. Now it feels more like the Chiefs’ defense might have something to say about that formerly long-held belief.

That defense was the biggest reason behind Kansas City’s 40-9 win over Oakland on Sunday. First place in the AFC West was on the line and the Raiders were looking to pull an upset inside Arrowhead Stadium. The only real surprise that came out of this game was the continued dominance of the Chiefs’ defense. That unit forced three turnovers, sacked Raiders quarterback Derek Carr twice and even added a fourth-down stand in what was easily its best performance of the season.

The Chiefs have spent this entire year talking about the potential of this defense once everyone found a comfort level with it. That optimism made more sense after the way Kansas City pummeled the Raiders.

“We’re just jelling together,” said linebacker Anthony Hitchens. “We all knew it wasn’t going to show up early in the season but we just kept working and it’s starting to show. There is still tons of improvement to make but we only let them in the end zone once. That’s the whole thing — we can give up a lot of yards but we lock down when we get in the red zone. That’s the difference between now and a few weeks ago.”

It’s fair to point out that the Chiefs beat up on a Raiders team that looked just as awful in a 34-3 loss to the lowly New York Jets two weeks ago. It’s also not a secret that Carr never has played well in Kansas City, as he’s now thrown four touchdowns and seven interceptions during his career inside Arrowhead. That doesn’t mean the Chiefs didn’t do something impressive on Sunday. In fact, it’s now been two straight weeks that Kansas City’s defense has outplayed its offense.

The Chiefs forced four turnovers in a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Nov. 18. That win also included a meltdown by an opposing quarterback — Philip Rivers tossed four interceptions in that contest — but the larger point here is that Kansas City isn’t solely relying on star quarterback Patrick Mahomes anymore. The vaunted Chiefs offense amassed just 259 total yards against the Raiders, with Mahomes throwing for a career-low 175 yards. That same unit had been averaging 396.1 yards coming into this game, which ranked third in the NFL in that category.

Kansas City needed its offense to play at an exceptional level last year, when the Chiefs reached the AFC title game. They couldn’t rely on a miserable defense that ultimately failed them in the postseason, and they made plenty of changes to improve that side of the football this past offseason. There’s a new coordinator (Steve Spagnuolo), a new scheme (the 4-3) and six new starters. There also have been plenty of growing pains, especially because the Chiefs have struggled to stop the run all season. This actually is the first time this year where Kansas City can say it’s put together two straight weeks of strong defensive play.

The difference is that more players are becoming more familiar with Spagnuolo’s schemes as well as each other.

“Everything is starting to come together because we know we have guys who can make plays,” said linebacker Reggie Ragland. “(Safety) Tyrann Mathieu has been making plays since he was at LSU. (Safety) Juan Thornhill has been making plays since he was at Virginia. We have a lot of guys who know how to make things happen and we’re playing loose. At the end of the day, it’s our job but we also still need to have fun with it.”

The Chiefs set the tone on defense from the moment this game started. Mathieu intercepted Carr in the first quarter and set up Kansas City’s first score, a 3-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to running back Darrel Williams. The Raiders later tried to convert a fourth-and-1 on the Chiefs 40-yard line in the second quarter. Thornhill sniffed out a jet sweep by Oakland wide receiver Trevor Davis, stuffed the play and the Chiefs eventually turned that into a 13-yard touchdown run by Mahomes.

The Raiders were already reeling by that point and then Thornhill added to their misery with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown. Just like that, the Chiefs had a 21-0 lead and all hopes of a decent division battle vanished.

“You’ve got to give them credit,” said Raiders head coach Jon Gruden. “That is a good defensive team. They do a lot and they came in with a very unorthodox package. They mixed their coverages and mixed their looks. We had some opportunities, (but) we just didn’t cash in on them and they did. That is a big part of this game.”

The Chiefs couldn’t have picked a better time to find some consistency on defense. The race for AFC playoff spots is heating up, with New England and Baltimore sitting in favorable positions to land first-round byes. When this season began, most people thought the AFC title game would be a rematch of last year’s epic contest between the Chiefs and Patriots. However, the Ravens firmly have entrenched themselves as the best team in football right now, especially after beating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

This Kansas City win was a reminder that the Chiefs shouldn’t be forgotten. They’ve battled through injuries to key players (including the loss of Mahomes for two full games) and they now sit at 8-4. Next up is a trip to New England to face the Patriots in a game that will say even more about where the Chiefs stand.

“They’re a really good football team and they’re going to be in an environment where they win a lot of games,” Mahomes said. “We have to find a way to go out there and win. We came close last year (a 43-40 loss) and when (former Chiefs quarterback) Alex (Smith) was here, we did actually get the win (in 2017). So guys know how to (do it). It’s about finding the best way to get the win.”

The Chiefs know it won’t be easy. The Patriots already possess the stingiest defense in the league so Kansas City might have a hard time shaking its recent slump on offense. That used to be a recipe for disaster against an elite opponent like New England. Now it could be one more opportunity for the Chiefs’ defense to prove its mettle.

A year ago, it was laughable to think such a thought. It didn’t even feel that plausible when this season began, especially with the Chiefs struggling to find their way. But there really is something growing within Kansas City’s defense after this latest victory. It’s the confidence that comes with knowing your team has more than one way to win when the games become a whole lot bigger.

Custom Ben Niemann Jersey Large

Week 13 of the NFL wrapped up with 28 former Iowa players occupying roster spots. Eight of those guys played on the offensive line and six performed in the secondary, those positions accounting for half of the former Hawkeyes in the league. Running back and wide receiver were the only non-specialist spots at which they did not have representation.

If you were wondering how some of Iowa’s rivals are doing in putting players in the pros, here’s a look at the teams against which the Hawkeyes compete for a trophy (source – ESPN):

-Iowa State (8)

-Wisconsin (32)

-Minnesota (10)

-Nebraska (27)

And here are the other teams in the Big Ten West Division:

-Northwestern (15)

-Illinois (16)

-Purdue (16)

So, among the eight programs, the Hawkeyes rank second, four behind Wisconsin and one ahead of Nebraska.

Here’s how some of the Hawkeyes performed in the NFL for Week 13:

-The Chiefs improved to 25-3 against AFC West opponents with a 40-9 drubbing of Oakland Sunday in Kansas City. Linebacker Anthony Hitchens recorded five tackles in 48 snaps for the winners. Fellow linebacker Ben Niemann added three stops.

-Defensive back Micah Hyde delivered a memorable performance in Buffalo’s 26-15 victory at Dallas on Thanksgiving. He totaled 10 tackles, forced a fumble and was credited with a quarterback hurry. He logged 77 snaps on defense and four more on special teams.

-It was a quiet day by George Kittle standards Sunday when the all-pro tight end was held to two catches for 16 yards on four targets during San Francisco’s 20-17 loss at Baltimore. It was only the 49ers second loss in 12 games.

Offensive guard Marshal Yanda saw 65 snaps as the Ravens improved to 10-2.

-After a 1-9 start, Washington won for a second week in a row. Guard Brandon Scherff logged 64 snaps on offense and six more on special teams as the Redskins downed the Panthers in Carolina, 29-21.

-The Broncos held off the Chargers Sunday in Denver, 23-20. Rookie tight end Noah Fant caught one of three targets for five yards in the win. Teammate Josey Jewell, a linebacker, recovered a fumble for the second time this season.

For Los Angeles, defensive back Desmond King accumulated five tackles (four solo). He played 27 defensive snaps and 21 on special teams.

-The Bears registered a 24-20 Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit. Guard James Daniels saw 65 offensive snaps and five more on special teams for Chicago.

For the Lions, tight end TJ Hockenson caught six of 11 targets for 18 yards. On Monday, the team place the rookie on injured reserve (ankle), ending his season. He finished it with 32 receptions for 367 yards and two touchdowns.

Against the Bears, tackle Mike Daniels played 14 snaps on defense and five more on special teams.

-Despite a knee injury knocking him out of last week’s game, right offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga played 64 snaps Sunday during the Packers’ 31-13 victory at the New York Giants. Defensive back Josh Jackson saw eight snaps on defense and 13 more on special teams, recording two solo tackles.

-Guard Austin Blythe logged 72 snaps on offense and eight more on special teams during the Rams’ 34-7 win at Arizona. Rookie safety Jake Gervase saw his first action of the season for Los Angeles, playing 12 snaps on defense and 12 more on special teams. He didn’t have any statistics.

-In Jacksonville’s 28-11 loss to Tampa Bay, Carl Davis played seven snaps at defensive tackle without any stats.

-During Atlanta’s 26-18 Thanksgiving loss at New Orleans, defensive end Adrian Clayborn posted a half tackle for loss. He played 29 snaps.

-Tennessee picked up a 31-17 win at Indianapolis Sunday with rookie defensive back Amani Hooker recording two tackles, playing 19 snaps on defense and 24 more on special teams.

-Cincinnati won for the first time this season, beating the Jets, 22-6. Greg Mabin logged six special teams snaps for the victors.

-Minnesota fell, 37-30, on Monday night in an exciting game at Seattle. Left tackle Riley Reiff played well before leaving the contest for good in the second half due to a concussion. Defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson was credited with two tackles.

Custom Derrick Nnadi Jersey Large

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —Chiefs defensive lineman Derrick Nnadi helped serve Thanksgiving meals to families in need at Sheffield Place.

Nnadi said he knows what goes on the table for a Thanksgiving feast.

“Stuffing, fried turkey – the best thing I had in my life. Pumpkin pie, apple pie, cherry pie. You need pie,” Nnadi said.

The Chiefs star said he has seen firsthand some families not having a Thanksgiving dinner.

“A lot of people don’t have the things they need,” he said.

Nnadi said that is why he wanted to perform this service on Tuesday.

“I feel honored. When I was in St. Louis, they never had stuff like this,” Dwanna Washington said.

All 17 families at Sheffield Place received the Thanksgiving Day meal. Sheffield Place helps families move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

Nnadi said it’s not just about the food. It’s about meeting people and letting them know others care about their situation.

“He doesn’t have to do this. It’s something that he’s doing of his own volition so I appreciate that greatly,” said David Hanzlick, director of Sheffield Place.

“It’s a mission to get some hungry people fed and let other people have a great time,” Nnadi said.

Custom Dorian O’Daniel Jersey Large

Third round draft picks are usually thought pretty highly of and tend to compete for starting jobs at some point early on in their career. That has not been the case for Dorian O’Daniel, who is in year two with the Kansas City Chiefs and has not lived up to the hype whatsoever.

O’Daniel, who played safety and linebacker at Clemson, focused on the linebacker spot for the Chiefs, but has had a hard time finding the field. He’s yet to start a game this season and has appeared in nine of the team’s 11 games so far, contributing only on special teams.

In fact, according to his profile on Pro Football Reference, O’Daniel hasn’t seen a single defensive snap in 2019. For a third round pick just a year ago, that’s bad, and clearly not a high quality draft pick by Brett Veach in what was his first draft as the acting general manager of the Chiefs.

Things didn’t look promising for O’Daniel this year when in preseason he was struggling to find playing time. In the game against the Bengals, O’Daniel was out there with the fourth stringers. That wasn’t exactly a confidence booster and really brought to light how little the organization thought of him.

With how much the Chiefs defense has struggled at times this season, O’Daniel not finding the field is pretty telling. He’s only 25 years old, but it certainly feels like he won’t be in a Chiefs uniform beyond this season.

Perhaps Dorian O’Daniel goes on to have a nice career somewhere else with another team, but it’s pretty clear that it’s not meant to be for him in Kansas City. He had a nice game against the Cincinnati Bengals last year, but since then, it’s been tough to really point out anything that the Clemson product has done in his two years as a pro player.

Custom Byron Pringle Jersey Large

EMPORIA, Kan. (KWCH) — It isn’t often you’ll find NFL wide receivers taking in high school football games, let alone games here in Kansas. But on Saturday, that’s exactly what happened.

To find out why Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Byron Pringle was in Emporia to see the Derby Panthers capture a state title against Olathe North, you’ll have to look back before he was in the NFL.

The connection to the Panthers starts with David Tullis, an assistant on the Derby team. He and Pringle were teammates at Butler Community College and at Kansas State University, but their friendship goes far beyond the field.

“He’s got my back and I’ve got his, that is about it,” said David.

Byron moved to Kansas from Tampa, Florida, to play football at Butler. Not knowing anyone, the Tullis family became a home away from home.

“It’s unconditional. It is straight up love,” said Pringle. “They have my back and I have their back, just a family away from home.”

“For him to know he has a Kansas family here is as special and it is special for us too,” said Allen Tullis.

Football ultimately took the pair down different paths, Byron left K-State a year early to test pro waters signing with the Chiefs. David stayed and that decision led him back to Derby where he’s now an assistant on the team. Despite the distance, the two say they remain close.

“He’s always texting or we text him, they’re both so busy they don’t get to see each other,” said Cathy Tullis.

Now that his season is over, David plans to spend Sundays at Arrowhead Stadium cheering on one of his closest friends.

“When he makes a nice play on punt or something like that, I’ll be yelling for him,” said David.

“It is just a blessing to be able to have people like that who open up their house, just a place to get away when you have down time. It sort of feels like home,” said Pringle.
