Shaun Smith practically tried to choke out Trent Richardson this Sunday during one extended tackle. It was dirty for sure and it will be interesting to see how the NFL comes down on it. After the loss to the Browns by more than three touchdowns, Smith was ill-tempered on Twitter after his prediction that the Chiefs would win by 10 fell flat. Smith was fighting with fans and then got into it with a local radio guy, Danny Parkins who pointed out that the backlash shouldn’t have been a surprise. Smith responded with a not-so-vague threat. “… i have faith n my teammates that’s why i said it so u r blocked chump u don’t want to c me in the streets so be easy” Smith then tweeted: “Am not on Here to make friends so if u don’t like what the f i say don’t follow me n i mean that my houses 6 cards are paid for i love the game of football so either say something positive to me or kick rocks thanks u shaun smith” There’s more about the entire episode, but it isn’t hard to understand why Shaun Smith has played so many places without sticking, despite his massive size and ability to clog lanes. Smith has now played with Dallas, Arizona, New Orleans, Cincy, Cleveland, Detroit, Cincy again, and Kansas City. That’s a lot of movement for a 31-year-old player.
