[Kansas City.com] Eddie Kennison had the TV on this week when he heard the words “Terrell Owens,” “Kansas City” and “possible meeting.” As the Chiefs’ quiet No. 1 receiver, Kennison’s name is barely the occasional blip on the ticker.
He stopped what he was doing and listened.
“If T.O. came to Kansas City to help this team win a Super Bowl, I’m all for it,” Kennison said. “But let’s not lose sight that I’m still here. I’ve been putting up numbers as a receiver with the Kansas City Chiefs amongst some of the best in the National Football League.”
“It kind of frustrates me a little bit for every year people to be putting out that we need receivers in the Kansas City Chiefs organization. My numbers speak volumes on why we really don’t need to bring any receivers in.”
Kennison, who has declined to speak to reporters about himself over the last couple of years, broke his silence Friday. It was time to talk. He’s had back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons, something that hadn’t been done in Kansas City since the mid 1980s. But every offseason, the talk inevitably seems to drift to upgrading the receiving corps.
“If you think about it, the Chiefs have their 1,000-yard receiver, so we’re doing some great things,” Kennison said.
