This should make you feel pretty good.

Former Chiefs receiver, Eddie Kennison, has signed with Kansas City in order to retire a Chief.

Kennison was drafted by the Rams but the best years of his career came with the Chiefs from 2002-2006 Kennison averaged 59 receptions, 961 yards, and 5 touchdowns. Kennison had back to back 1000 yard seasons in 2004 and 2005 as part of the great Dick Vermiel offenses led by Trent Green.

Kennison injured his hamstring on the first play of the season in 2007 and was released in February of 2008. He then resigned with the Rams but never really got going. He was released in October of 2008.

I always liked Kennison and I never thought he got enough credit for being the Chiefs #1 receiver. It is great that he will retire in Red and Gold.

“I am honored and humbled to officially conclude my NFL playing career as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs,” Kennison said. “My family is extremely grateful to the Hunt family, Scott Pioli and the Chiefs organization for making this moment possible. Kansas City has a special place in our hearts, and has truly become our home. I feel very blessed to have been extended the opportunity to retire as a member the Chiefs.”

Congratulations on a great career Eddie and welcome back to the Chiefs!
