"It was really over the last week, as the Oakland mayor worked very hard — to the finish line — to try to come up with something that would be workable for the Raiders and NFL," Hunt said, when asked when he made the decision to vote for the move. "But at the end of the day, it became clear that she was not going to be able to get that done."
There’s little doubt tight end Tony Gonzalez will go into the Chiefs’ Ring of Honor someday. And while it might seem curious to Chiefs fans that Gonzalez, the team’s all-time leader in catches, yards and receiving touchdowns, has not been inducted yet, it turns out there’s a good reason why. "We have a policy about a player being retired for a certain number of years that’s like the NFL’s (for the Hall of Fame)," Hunt explained.
"You know, the door is never closed on any player, just because a decision was made this year to move on," Hunt said. "You know, circumstances change, and it would be misleading for me to say ‘No, we would never have that player or this player back,’ because we’ve all seen it happen."

People have obtained associates degrees in the amount of time since the Chiefs last dropped a game to the AFC West. Approximately 200 million people have been born (including my 11-month-old son). The Shamrock Shake has come and gone twice.
At the NFL meetings at the swank Biltmore Resort in Phoenix, the owners voted 31-1 to allow The Son of Al to move the Raiders to Las Vegas. The one dissenting vote was from the Dolphins, who apparently wanted to remain as the No. 1 party city for athletes and visitors (although it should be noted that the franchise doesn’t play on Miami Beach, but, rather, in Miami Gardens, Fla., which basically is located smack in the middle of nowhere).
Still, that was enough for the Kansas City Chiefs to sign him to a one-year contract going into the 2016 season. Then, strangely enough, before the start of the regular season the Chiefs shipped him to the San Francisco 49ers. Streater didn’t do a whole lot for the Niners last season, catching just 18 passes for 191 yards and two scores.
