Chiefs news for 6 December 2019
Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker was named AFC Special Teams player of the month on Thursday.
Butker is 25 of 29 on field goals and 37 of 39 on point-after attempts this season, but in November he was clutch.
In the Chiefs’ 26-23 victory over the Vikings, Butker kicked for four goals and drilled a 54-yard field goal to tie the game. Then he hit the game-winner as the final seconds ticked off the clock.
Butker also kicked a 50-yard field goal in the victory over the Raiders, a 41-yard field again in the win over the Chargers and was four of five on field goals in the loss to the Titans. He also only missed one PAT during that stretch.
Hours after Jesse Wilson watched the Kansas City Chiefs destroy the Oakland Raiders, someone did the same thing to his 2017 Dodge Ram Laramie that was adorned with Chiefs logos and colors.
Wilson’s dad, A.J. Wilson, was the city manager in Kansas City in the 1980s. Wilson’s truck was destroyed at his home in Fallbrook, California. Wilson said he believes the truck was destroyed because of his loyalties to the Chiefs – the team he grew up watching and that continues to be his favorite team – while living in Southern California.
Wilson said he noticed his antenna was bent, the truck looked lower than normal and the tires were flat.
Upon closer inspection, Wilson found shattered windows, deep scratches, and mangled mirrors and wipers. He also discovered an ax near his truck that police believe the vandal used to chop the holes in the side of the truck.
To add insult to injury, Wilson said $800 was stolen from his car that was meant to be used to shop for the Adopt a Family his family was working with. Wilson’s insurance company said the vandals did $30,000 in damage.
The team announced running back Darrel Williams has been placed on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in last week’s win over the Oakland Raiders.
The Chiefs will now streak towards the postseason without their most powerful back.
In corresponding moves to putting the running back on IR, the Chiefs elevated defensive back Alex Brown from the practice squad and signed wide receiver Gehrig Dieter to the practice squad.
The organization announced a multi-year agreement Thursday with Entercom that will make 106.5 The Wolf (WDAF-FM) the new flagship station of the 70-station Chiefs Radio Network.
Also, 610 Sports Radio (KCSP) will become the Chiefs’ official broadcast partner, with exclusive rights to in-season news conferences with the head coach (Andy Reid) and quarterback (Patrick Mahomes). KCSP will broadcast the Chiefs Kingdom Radio Show on Monday nights.
The team also announced that play-by-play announcer Mitch Holthus would return in 2020 for his 27th season.
“We look forward to partnering with 106.5 The Wolf and the powerful Entercom family of stations,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “The ability to bring our game broadcasts and existing weekly radio shows under one roof is a large part of this change, but we are equally excited about creating new content and developing new opportunities for Chiefs fans to engage with their favorite team.”
VIDEO: Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes covered a lot of topics Wednesday, December 4, 2019, including preparing for New England, playing in the pocket, Tom Brady and his new cleats.
Delicia Cordon filed the lawsuit last year accusing McCoy of failing to protect her from a violent July 2018 home invasion at a home he owns in Milton, just outside Atlanta. Cordon was bloodied and beaten, and $133,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from the home.
McCoy, who played for the Buffalo Bills at the time, was not at the home at the time.
Cordon later amended the suit to accuse McCoy of physically abusing her and orchestrating the attack. McCoy vehemently denied the allegations.
The terms of the settlement are not disclosed in online court records. Lawyers for McCoy and Cordon didn’t immediately respond to emails asking about the terms of the settlement.
