Unable to send Kadarius Toney home with pay, the Chiefs might have done the next closest thing

Feb 12, 2024

In 2005, the Eagles (coached by Andy Reid) had enough of receiver Terrell Owens. After suspending him four games without pay for conduct detrimental to the team, they sent him home for the rest of the season, with pay.

Several months later, the CBA was rewritten to prevent teams from placing players on paid suspensions.

Eighteen years later, it seems as if the Chiefs and Reid decided after the Week 15 win over the Patriots to put receiver Kadarius Toney on ice for the rest of the year.

In that game, Toney had another drop, which became an interception. The prior week, he lined up offside and wiped out a touchdown he scored after catching a lateral from tight end Travis Kelce. Toney was then unrepentant about his mistake, even though multiple different camera angles showed that he lined up incorrectly and did nothing to adjust before the ball was snapped.
