Ex-Chiefs Super Champ Posts Cryptic Message Amid Free Agency

The Kansas City Chiefs are working hard to rebuild their roster to make a legit run a Super Bowl three-peat. While the Chiefs retained several free agents, Jerick McKinnon is still on the market.



After the Chiefs cleared nearly $20 million from L’Jarius Sneed‘s trade to the Tennessee Titans, the Chiefs made the surprise move to re-sign running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire on April 2.





As for McKinnon, his future remains unclear. The veteran running back rarely posts on X, formerly known as Twitter, so his message on Friday, April 5 garnered attenion. “A lot of ppl can’t come round me no more that’s just how that cookie crumbles ‍♂️,” McKinnon posted.

Fans flooded the post with comments. One person responded, “Need you to stay and retire a Chiefs!!! Let’s get that 3rd ring!!!” Another fan posted, “If Jerick doesn’t get re-signed & leaves the Chiefs I may actually cry.”



The 31-year-old shared a cryptic tweet during free agency last season. After a career year, “The disrespect is crazy,” he posted. Two months, later he re-signed with the Chiefs on a one-year, $1.3 million contract.





McKinnon played a crucial role in Kansas City’s run to a Super Bowl championship in 2023. During the regular season, he recorded 72 carries for 291 yards and a touchdown, along with 56 receptions for 512 yards and 9 scores. He added another 19 rushes for 60 yards in the postseason.

Against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl, McKinnon could’ve scored a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. However, he purposely stopped two yards short of the end zone, which helped set up the Chiefs for the game-winning field goal.

In 12 games last season, McKinnon registered 21 rushes for 60 yards and 1 touchdown, along with 25 receptions for 192 yards and 4 scores.
