Toney has been successful in catching 41 passes for a total of 420 yards. The majority of those gains came in a game that took place in 2021 Week 5 against the Cowboys, in which he caught 10 passes for a total of 189 yards. Toney’s career-best performance came to an end when he was ejected from the game late in the rout loss for throwing a punch.
During his brief time in New York, Toney, who had been selected by the Giants in the first round in 2021, encountered more than his fair share of difficulties. Toney, who is 23 years old and has played in just 12 games over the course of his career due to injuries, has not been on the field since Week 2 of this season because of an issue with his hamstring that has persisted since then. Before the 2022 season, Toney had been the subject of trade rumors due to his lackluster performance during his time with the New York Knicks.
In the midst of his second season in the National Football League, Kadarius Toney has found a new team to call home. NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported on Thursday that the Kansas City Chiefs will receive a third-round compensatory pick and a sixth-round pick in 2023 as part of a trade that will send a speedy wide receiver from the New York Giants to the Kansas City Chiefs. A source has confirmed that this information is accurate. According to Pelissero, there are no conditions attached to the third-round pick.
The way that Toney moves through space and the way that he looks make him sound like he could be Hill 2.0. Toney needs to get back to full health before we can see how Andy Reid and the rest of his staff use their newest offensive threat. The Chiefs have the right people behind the scenes to help him get there, but we can’t see how they use him until Toney is healthy again.
