He was picked up by the Chiefs on waivers before the season began.White played in 63 games during his five-year Chiefs career, recording 2 Larry Johnson Jersey ,396 yards and 16 touchdowns on 163 receptions.He was named the club’s Mack Lee Hill Award winner as the team’s top rookie after the 1975 season.Ten years after his playing career ended, White — along with other former Chiefs players and executives — became a founding member of the Kansas City Ambassadors, the only group of its kind in the NFL.The Ambassadors participate in community outreach events for the team.White was the inaugural President of the organization, and served in that capacity through 1998.Kansas City Ambassadors Walter White and Dave Lindstrom visit the students of Our Lady of Angels School in October 2012Marty Denzer/Key photoWhite also spent decades helping raise millions of dollars for charities across the country, with an emphasis on those for cancer patients and researchHe was employed at Commerce Bank in Kansas City for 22 years, and most recently served as Vice President of Commerce Bank’s Investment Group.He was also well-known in the Kansas City area as a blues musician.“My family and I are saddened by the passing of Walter,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement on Thursday. “The Ambassadors are an integral part of the Chiefs family and the Kansas City community Joe Montana Jersey , and Walter was a vital part of the group’s development. It would be hard to find someone who embraced the values and work of the Ambassadors more than Walter did. We will never be able to thank him enough for everything that he did for the organization both on the field and in the community after his playing days concluded. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family during this difficult time.”White is survived by his wife Jeri and three children: Jason, Adam and Whitney. Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill scored three second-half touchdowns on Sunday night, including a 75-yard catch-and-run with a burst the NFL hasn’t seen since Randy Moss took a short pass down the left sideline on Thanksgiving Day 1998 and blew past every player who thought he had an angle on the then-rookie.Hill, now in his third year, made his mark two years ago as a return specialist, but he’s now anything but that, contrary to the misplaced wisdom of Jalen Ramsey. Hill may already be the best receiver in the entire NFL.Chris Simms made the case for Hill on Monday’s PFT Live Len Dawson Jersey , and I agree with Simms (for a change). The strongest argument is this: Of all the great receivers in the NFL right now, and there are more than a few, which one would you want on your favorite team?And in answering that, considering not only production but impact. Hill must be accounted for, everywhere he goes. Hill must be double-covered, everywhere he goes. Hill, who will still get his catches Mitch Morse Jersey , yards, and touchdowns even with the extra attention, opens up the offense like no other player currently in the NFL.Simms will be back on Wednesday, and he’ll list his top 10 receivers in the league. But we already know No. 1. After Sunday night, it’s hard to imagine much of a debate.
