The NFL’s last work stoppage in 1987 happened before some of the current Chiefs players were born. Even for those who were alive back then, the owner-imposed lockout is uncharted territory.
With that in mind, some veterans have called the players to Kansas City on Tuesday for an informational meeting on the labor situation and other matters.
“Just try to get an agent, get a sponsor, try to get on with a team,” he told ESPN.com’s Dave Wilson, former sports editor of the Enterprise. “Maybe I could sponsor myself.
“All I’d have to do is get an offer by a team that could get me running track because you know, football season, you don’t know how long it’s going to go with the lockout.”
“The Chiefs have always been a great partner of ours and a fantastic leader in the community,” noted Heart of Heart International’s Donor Relations Specialist Jason Slattery. “The kits that the Chiefs volunteers are helping to assemble and quality check today will make such a difference in the lives of those trying to pick up the pieces. There is so much need, not only internationally but even here locally. It is thanks to donations and volunteers like this that Heart to Heart is able to make the impact we have for nearly two decades.”
