Arrowhead History: Career Receivers

 The New Arrowhead Stadium will debut at the end of August when the Chiefs host Philadelphia in a pre-season game. After 38 seasons of Chiefs home games, the building has been updated with 21st Century amenities.

Remaining within the stadium shell are memories of the hundreds of games that have been played there since the summer of 1972. Within those games have been some memorable performances by members of the Chiefs and the visiting teams that will be featured over the next weeks leading up to the opening of the new Arrowhead.

Today, it’s the top 20 career receivers (yardage) in Arrowhead Stadium history.

    There’s Tim Brown. Interesting that he never had a great day against us (from the other list)…but he sure had plenty of good days.

    Ya, he was always consistent. Great route runner, great hands, savy veteran. Thank God thru most of his career, we had a pass rush and hasty, carter and the boys!Interesting how the arrowhead list is lead by a tight end and has three running backs on it (that i know). we haven’t had a dominate wide out in quite sometime. Stepnon paige @ #2, but he even got blown out by gonzo!

    And just remember where Paige came from: a college free agent. Carlos Carson, I think, was maybe a 5th round pick; something like that. Henry Marshall, I think, was a 3rd round pick. Willie Davis, Birden, and JT Smith: all free agents.

    Just saying…they can be found, and don’t always have to be first round picks.

    Good point Michael and maybe now with pioli/haley we can start finding some of those kind of guys again! Hopefully! 1st round or high pick on a WR is a big gamble, at least it has been for the chiefs the last 15 plus years. Can anyone think of high draft pick that ended up as anything, other than Bowe?
