The Kansas City Chiefs’ offseason has been far from celebratory. From Rashee Rice’s various incidents (hit and run, suspected assault) to comments made by Harrison Butker that the team wants nothing to do with, there’s been a lot of ‘bad paparazzi’ for the Chiefs since their latest Super Bowl win.

Unfortunately, the team’s time in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons isn’t over.

According to Kansas City court records obtained by KSHB, Chiefs offensive linemen Wanya Morris and Chukwuebuka Godrick were arrested on Thursday night for possession of marijuana. The linemen were booked into the Johnson County Adult Detention Center at around 2. a.m. local time early Friday morning.

However, both players were able to make a video appearance in front of a Johnson County judge on Friday afternoon and have since been released on $2,500 bail. They’ll have a court appearance on May 23.

While there is no indication of how much marijuana the Chiefs’ linemen had, this situation is quite unlucky, considering citizens of Missouri, just 30 minutes away, can have up to three ounces of cannabis in their possession.

Morris, a 2023 third-round pick, is expected to compete for the Chiefs’ starting left tackle position this fall. Meanwhile, Godrick landed with the Chiefs via the NFL’s International Player Pathway program. Both are in their second seasons with the team.
