Best Rushing WRs In Chiefs History

As we’ve waited for the start of the 2011 NFL season, we didn’t spend the last four months twiddling our thumbs. Always in the search for something different, we’ll bring you some special statistics, some unusual stats.

Today’s example is our list of the top 10 best rushing wide receivers in team history. We are talking about the guys who ran the end-around play, the reverse, the double reverse.

In 51 seasons, they’ve never really had a WR who was a consistent option in the running game. The leader was WR Johnnie Morton, who in just a short 43 games put together 25 carries. Our ranking does not include Frank Jackson of the Texans/Chiefs who had 720 rushing yards in his career. Jackson played both running back and wide receiver.

The biggest running play with a receiver happened at Arrowhead Stadium on December 18, 1999 when Derrick Alexander weaved his way through the Pittsburgh Steelers defense for an 82-yard touchdown.

Here’s the list:
