‘I don’t know how he got out of that building’


Travis Kelce is happy to have one more weapon added to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs’ offensive arsenal.

He is simply confused about how the New York Giants may let Kadarius Toney get away.

“I do not understand how he obtained out of that constructing,” Kelce mentioned on the “New Heights w/ Jason & Travis Kelce” podcast. “I simply do not perceive. I do not perceive in any respect.

“I do not even wish to know what occurred there. I am extraordinarily joyful that [Chiefs general manager] Brett Veach has discovered a means as soon as once more to get an extremely gifted participant into this constructing.”

Taken by the Giants with the twentieth general choice within the 2021 NFL Draft, Toney’s yr in Gotham was fraught with accidents and points associated to lack of use and manufacturing. He solely performed 12 of a attainable 24 video games, with simply 5 begins.

Having produced simply 41 receptions for 420 yards in New York, Toney scored his first NFL landing in his second sport with the Chiefs and offered a reminder of the game-changing skill he possesses.

In Week 10 towards the Jaguars, Toney had 4 receptions for 57 yards and the TD, two carries for 33 yards and a pair of punt returns for 11 yards. It was a fast comeback for the Chiefs since buying Toney forward of the commerce deadline.

“While you get a deal like that, you assume there’s one thing it’s a must to weigh,” Kelce mentioned. “So long as he is within the constructing, man, this man is wise, man, this man is loopy athletic, man, this man has a whole lot of confidence.”

Drafted by basic supervisor Dave Gettleman, Toney by no means appeared to slot in with then head coach Joe Decide. And, beneath the brand new regime of GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll, who did not decide him, Toney’s time with Large Blue ended.

A recent begin was present in KC and a recap of what could possibly be to return for Toney was delivered in Week 10. Subsequent up is the Chargers on Sunday evening.

Little question Kelce is raring to see what’s subsequent for Toney, however he is already enthusiastic about what the 23-year-old has added to the Chiefs.

“When you’ve gotten a whole lot of confidence, it means you perceive what is going on on on the market,” Kelce mentioned. “You are seeing issues, you know the way to assault. That goes again to being a wise participant and a wise particular person. He is been an important teammate.”
