Kansas City Chiefs Make Their Way To Joplin

joplin

The Kansas City Chiefs have filled four buses with players and front office personnel as they make their way to Joplin, Mo. As many of you know, the Chiefs will be helping out with some of the tornado relief efforts down there, taking a tour of the devastation and meeting with members of the community.

The photo to your right comes from the Chiefs official Twitter account so I'd keep an eye on that throughout the day as it appears they'll be tweeting out some photos. 

As we've noted, there is quite the KC Chiefs contingent heading down. Nearly 120 employees will be making the trip, including owner Clark Hunt, GM Scott Pioli and team president Mark Donovan. Among the players making the trip are WR Jonathan Baldwin, FBShane Bannon, OL Rodney Hudson, S Reshard Langford, WR Dexter McCluster and LB Andy Studebaker.

What's unique about this trip is that players and members of the organization are getting together while the NFL lockout is in place. There's a communication ban between those two during the work stoppage but the team and the league wisely decided to grant a waiver for this particular case. That doesn't mean, though, that Chiefs head coach Todd Haley will be talking X's and O's with the players (at least it shouldn't mean that).

Here's a quick video report from KMBC if you need your Arrowhead fix.
