I feel bad for this guy. He worked so hard for two years and knowing they had a top level back already too. I watched him on the HBO special this summer and he seemed like a real class act. I guess they said one more big hit and you might not be walking so he had to hang it up.

I'm sad to see him go. So many memories from the Vermeil years. I've seen more effort from him and Kolby Smith than I think I will ever see from L.J. this year. Thanks for everything, Priest. By far the best Chiefs running back since Marcus Allen.
