Know your Chiefs – Kadarius Toney

 7 replies

Kadarius Toney was born January 27, 1999, in Mobile, Alabama.  He attended Blount High School in Eight Mile, Alabama.  He started at quarterback   his last two years and was a dual threat quarterback, finishing his high school career with a record of 20-5.  His high school coach said this of him: “As far as him as a person, I don’t think you’ll meet a better person.  He’s a very likeable guy, he’s loved in the locker room, and I think that says a lot about who you are in the field.” 

Toney was a consensus three-start recruit.  He received offers from South Caroline, Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Alabama, and Florida.  His reason for choosing Florida was that Florida was really honest in the recruiting process.  They told him that he was coming in as a quarterback, and if he won the job great, but if not they’d move him to receiver to make sure they got him on the field.

His first three years of college he was a reserve player at wide receiver, running back, wildcat quarterback, and special teams.  In his 2020 senior year, his production increased incredibly, leading the offense with 994 yards, a 14.1 average and 10 touchdowns.  He also returned kickoffs and punts.   The SEC coaches voted him first-team all-conference.

He was selected as the 20th overall pick in the 2021 draft by the Giants.  He was placed on the COVID list at the start of training camp.  He missed four games his first season with an oblique injury, and then was on the COVID list again.  Overall, he appeared in 10 games and still was second on the team in receiving yards. 

He was traded to the Chiefs on October 27, 2022, for a third and sixth round pick.

I believe NoVAChiefs, ups, or someone else mentioned not long after we signed him that he also records rap music; I believe Wikipedia has a link to his SoundCloud page.

You are correct, he does.
I usually try to support our guys in their endeavors, but what I heard I’ll just say I’m sure it is done very well

I feel the same about Tamba, I can’t handle the music.
