“Priest’s tremendous work ethic and perseverance took him from unheralded beginnings as an undrafted free agent to one of the most electrifying and productive offensive players to ever play for the Chiefs,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said in a statement released by the team. “On behalf of my family and the entire Chiefs organization, we congratulate Priest on this well-deserved honor.”
