Last week, I was afforded one of the coolest moments of, not only my professional career, but I life. I got to sit down with Chiefs wide receiver Byron Pringle and talk with him about many things including, of course, how it feels to be a Super Bowl Champion. I honestly forgot that last year was his first on the roster due to that injury he sustained in the 2018 preseason. He was on his way to making the roster, in my opinion, and could have contributed that year. Instead, he got healthy and made the roster in 2019 where he would be one of five Chiefs receivers, including the tight end position, to have over 100 receiving yards in a game. It would have been six if Hardman had gotten three more yards against Baltimore. Pringle was thrown into more playing time due to the Watkins injury and didn’t disappoint.
Getting to talk with him was a great experience and one that I will always cherish, he was humble, engaged and very excited to get him name out there more which I think is warranted. I feel that Pringle is a better receiver than Robinson and should be seeing more reps out wide where the Chiefs can use his speed and route running ability to get him open while players like Hill, Watkins, Hardman, or Kelce are split out as well. He’s got the tools to make big plays in this offense and add another weapon that teams aren’t ready for. If you missed the interview last week, there’s nothing to worry about!
