KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) — Two areas of DICK’s Sporting Goods hosted Chiefs players this week for autograph sessions with fans. On Sunday, Chiefs fans had one last chance to get an autograph from a pair of Super Bowl champs before heading out of town for the offseason.
Running back Jerick McKinnon and linebacker Willie Gay, Jr. autographed Super Bowl gear and photos Sunday at the sporting goods store’s Zona Rosa location. In the days prior, cornerback L’Jarius Sneed, wide receiver Skyy Moore, and linebacker Nick Bolton made appearances at various locations.
The Sunday autograph line snaked around the building, with some fans lining up as early as 6am for a chance to attend the 1pm autograph session.
McKinnon told KCTV5 it’s good to feel the love from Chiefs Kingdom after the team’s Super Bowl victory.
“It was amazing, especially at the parade, so many people,” McKinnon said. “We’ve actually moved on from where I’m at, e [there were] so many people out, just love and support, so you know just seeing the way the fans and the city react, I expect nothing less. Like I said, it was all love. I’m just taking it all in and going with the flow.
McKinnon is expected to become a free agent in the offseason but told KCTV5 he would like to stay with the Chiefs. During Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce’s New Heights podcast on Wednesday, Kelce expressed hope that Kansas City will keep McKinnon in town for the 2023 season.
