So often, when Terez Paylor would break news on the Kansas City Chiefs, we would precede his name with “friend-of-the-site.”
It was not just for show. He was a friend to many of us here at Arrowhead Pride, always generous with his time. Terez was so talented, and during his four-plus years as Chiefs beat writer for The Kansas City Star and later senior NFL writer for Yahoo! Sports, we suspect he felt like a friend to you, too.
We will miss him very much. Until we meet again.
