It's just one late night tweet but Kansas City Chiefs WR De'Anthony Thomas says he will be back on the field next year.
THEY KNOW IM COMING BACK ON THE FIELD NEXT YEAR . #RETURNDAT— DE'ANTHONY THOMAS (@DATBLACKMOMBA13) January 28, 2016
I'm not sure if there was ever a chance he wouldn't be on the field but Chiefs GM John Dorsey said he expects DAT to be with the team during OTAs later this spring. The Chiefs do have a need for a punt returner so there is a spot for DAT to contribute.
We still don't really know what's going on with DAT after he ended the season on the non-football illness list. The Chiefs have been quiet about it except to say it was not due to the concussion while DAT recently said he was still recovering from his concussion.
Not sure we'll ever find out what happened here.
