Javier Arenas Still Helping Out In Alabama


We told you a few weeks ago that Kansas City Chiefs CB Javier Arenas was in his home in Tuscaloosa when the terrible tornado hit last month. We also told you that Arenas had driven to Kansas City to get supplies to bring back to those effected.

What we didn’t know, however, is that Javier is still down there helping out. Check out this nugget from Peter King’s MMQB:

One fact Anderson couldn’t fit in the story, from Tinker: When he was born, in Decatur, Ala., the hospital had to be evacuated and he and his mother moved because of a severe tornado threat in the area.

And one NFL-related thing: Anderson had nothing but praise for SI cover subject Javier Arenas, the Chiefs cornerback and former Alabama star whose home was shredded during the tornado. “He’s been in the thick of it every day, helping whoever needs to be helped,” Anderson said of Arenas. “No PR people telling him what to do — just a good man doing what needs to be done in the middle of a disaster.”

The Chiefs may have just drafted some guys that have some character concerns but with guys like Arenas already on the team, you can’t help but think that the new guys are walking into the perfect situation. We cheer for these guys for what they do on the field but it makes it extra special when we can cheer for them for what they do off the field as well. Guys like Brian Waters, with his dozens of charities and now Arenas, make me proud to be a Chiefs fan.
