Chiefs news for 3 February 2019
Watch the top 10 plays by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes as he wins NFL MVP in the 2018 season.
It’s a monumental occasion in Kansas City and twitter has chimed in. Here are the best Twitter reactions from Patrick Mahomes’ special evening in Atlanta.
Gonzalez earned the honor Saturday, being selected for the top honor in professional football on the first ballot. No tight end has ever been elected on his first try until today. Gonzalez transformed the tight end position, finishing second in NFL history among all players in catches. He also caught 173 more passes than any other tight end.
Robinson, 80, was the sole senior finalist and needed 80 percent of the vote to be elected. And while Robinson’s selection was long overdue, Gonzalez was elected the first year he was eligible, becoming the first tight end to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. Also elected was cornerback Ty Law, whose career included 2006-07 in Kansas City.
This could just be a move the Chiefs made as they decide what to do with Anthony Sherman (if anything), but even if Ripkowski isn’t the answer moving forward, Sherman’s days in Kansas City could be numbered regardless.
Despite rushing for less than 200 yards every season so far in the NFL, Damien Williams would transition from watching Kareem Hunt hurdle over cornerbacks from the sideline to lining up in the backfield behind the hottest commodity the city had seen in its football history.
