Eddie Kennison spent his last seven season with the Kansas City Chiefs. In a move that coincides with the Chiefs’ youth movement, Kennison was cut. The 35 year old receiver says he has no plans of quitting of football and feels he’s got at least a couple of more productive years left in him.
Kennison was somewhat of a risky pickup for the Chiefs. He was cut in 2001 by the Denver Broncos and there were not a lot of high expectations for Kennison. However, he came to work everyday and quietly became one of the Chiefs most productive wide receivers.
His best seasons came in 2004 and 2005. Both years Kennison compiled over 1,000 yards receiving. In 2004, he caught 8 touchdowns the most since his rookie season with the Rams when he caught 9 in 1996. Kennison also had his highest yards per reception average at 17.5. In 2005, Kennison caught for 1,102 yards. Last year, he struggled with injuries including a hamstring injury on the first play from scrimmage last year in Houston.
