Chiefs Decline Fifth-Year Option for Wide Receiver Kadarius Toney

By Jayson Henderson

The Chiefs have opted not to exercise the fifth-year option for wide receiver Kadarius Toney’s contract, leaving him with one season remaining on his deal. Despite expressing confidence in Toney’s potential, injuries marred his 2023 season, limiting his impact on the field. In 13 games, he recorded 27 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown. Key moments, including critical penalties and turnovers, underscored his struggles throughout the season. The decision comes amidst notable additions to the Chiefs’ receiving corps, including Marquise Brown in free agency and Xavier Worthy as a first-round draft pick.
