We all knew this was going to happen, right? The Kansas City Chiefs make the Super Bowl and Kadarius Toney shows up and acts like all is right in the world.
In case you've been living under a rock, Toney has brought a lot of drama to the team this season. Recently, he was under fire for an Instagram Live he did where he said the Chiefs listed him on the injury report despite him not being injured. Toney spoke about that during Super Bowl media night, noting that the Live was actually directed at the Giants.
So, at least according to what he's saying, Toney's video was chopped up and edited to make it look like he was attacking the Chiefs, which he said he'd never do. He said that the video was directed at the Giants organization and fan base. Toney was a first-round pick by the Giants in 2021.

We're not done with Toney yet, however. When asked if he considers himself to be a number one wide receiver in the NFL, Toney said "Yeah, if I get the ball."
Was this a shot at Patrick Mahomes? Is Toney aware that he's been his worst enemy this year and not Mahomes? Toney was brought to Kansas City last year to help beef up the WR corps but he's struggled with drops and staying healthy (not to mention, staying onsides... too soon?).
Like most NFL teams, the Chiefs have occasional drama in their locker room but it's safe to say that Toney is responsible for most of that drama. He continues to say silly things like this when the Chiefs need to just stay focused and concentrate on the task at hand, which is beating the 49ers and becoming a dynasty.
Toney isn't helping himself with these comments, that's for sure.
