A difficult offseason for the Kansas City Chiefs continues with the news that two players were arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession on Thursday.

The arrests are the latest in a series of troubling developments for the Super Bowl champions this offseason.

In April, wide receiver Rashee Rice was involved in a car accident while racing a Lamborghini in northeast Dallas. He currently faces eight felony charges, a $1 million lawsuit and a likely suspension from the NFL. Rice is also suspected of assaulting a person at a Dallas nightclub earlier this month.

Last week, kicker Harrison Butker gave a controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College in Kansas in which he criticized diversity and equity initiatives and congratulated women earning degrees, saying they should be more excited about getting married and have children.

In April, Jackson County voters defeated a sales tax referendum that would have funded renovations to Arrowhead Stadium. And this week, rookie receiver Xavier Worthy, the Chiefs’ first-round pick in 2024, had his car was stolen from his apartment complex shortly after moving to Kansas City.

Taking all of this into consideration, the Chiefs likely feel like their first game of the 2024-25 season against the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 5 can’t come soon enough.
