Tuesday

The Chiefs bid farewell to one of the greatest players in franchise history on Tuesday with the news that linebacker Derrick Johnson would not be back next season. Johnson is the Chiefs’ all-time leader in tackles (1,262) and defensive starts (169), playing his entire 13-year career in Kansas City.

“Few players in recent history have meant more to the Chiefs franchise and the Kansas City community than Derrick Johnson,” Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt stated in a release that explained that Johnson would not be back with the Chiefs next season. “His tireless work ethic and passion for the game made him one of the most productive defensive players to ever wear a Chiefs uniform and one of the most Ray Nitschke Jersey  respected players both in our locker room and around the league.

“Over the last 13 seasons, Derrick represented himself and the Chiefs organization with integrity and class, and he will always be a part of our Chiefs family.”

Johnson created a lifetime of memories throughout his time in Chiefs Kingdom, but there’s a handful that stand out amongst the rest.

Five Moments That Define Derrick Johnson’s Legacy in Kansas City

One of those moments was a classic “D.J. Special” in 2016 against the Oakland Raiders.

The plays affectionately came to be known as “D.J. Specials,” where Johnson would shoot a gap, lunge at a ball-carrier’s legs—often rendering them useless and sending them straight to the ground, and were a common sight for much of Johnson’s career.

But over the last few years—there were Vintage 1969 Ray Nitschke Green Bay Packers Mitchell and Ness Away White Jersey Throwback  three hits in particular that will forever be remembered by Chiefs’ fans, and two of them came against the Oakland Raiders.

The first, which came on the road against the Raiders in 2016, was on then-rookie running back Jalen Richard, who took a little screen pass out to the right and never had a chance.

The ball carriers often get all the credit for breaking away from the defense, but it’s the key blocks that make those game-changing plays possible.

In this edition of “Triple Coverage,” we gave the best blocks of the year the credit that they deserve.

One of those blocks, courtesy of wide receiver Demarcus Robinson, paved the way for fellow wide out Tyreek Hill to find the end zone on his “Hill Mary” against the Dallas Cowboys.
