It’s almost become the tradition of the NFL for rookies to get stuck paying for the tab when teammates dine out together at dinner.
Well, Kansas City Chiefs rookie WR Skyy Moore got a taste of that tradition on Saturday night. Moore and the Chiefs’ receivers went out for their rookie dinner, dining at the venerable a famous Kansas City steakhouse
After the meal, the waitress dropped the bill off with Moore and that’s when he was taken by surprise. The bill for dinner came in at over $22,000 and that wasn’t even including the tip.
Moore later revealed that it was a joke and that he wasn’t expected to cover the bill. It was an elaborate prank by his teammates, but for a second there Moore truly thought that it was on him.
Back in June, the team signed him to a 4-year deal.
The 21-year-old was a three-year starter at Western Michigan and earned first-team All-MAC honors in 2021 and 2019. The Chiefs used the No. 54 overall pick on him in the 2022 NFL Draft.
