Saying Farewell to Football, Former Chiefs Tight End

Former Chiefs tight end Matt Bushman, who spent the last two years with Kansas City and earned two Super Bowl rings, recently indicated he’s saying goodbye to football.

Appearing on The Y’s Guys podcast, a show dedicated to BYU athletics, Bushman revealed that he’s moving forward under the assumption that his days in the NFL are over. While he said he’d be open to joining a team, he’s taking steps to move towards the next phase of his life.

After starting his career with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent before joining the Chiefs, the former BYU standout is currently a free agent.

In the podcast available at this link, Bushman considers his playing career and gradually comes to terms with the possibility of playing in the NFL. He had 1,719 receiving yards in three seasons at BYU, establishing himself as one of the better tight ends in program history.

Despite his limited playing time, he is appreciative of his Chiefs experience. He did appear in one game this year, earning seven snaps. “I am taking those steps to move on, but this is not a retirement announcement,” stated Bushman emphatically.

If the right opportunity comes along, Bushman said he’d “take it.” However, he felt it was time to take the next step and move away from football” after Kansas City elected not to re-sign him.

With Travis Kelce, Noah Gray, Irv Smith Jr. and incoming rookie Jared Wiley on the depth chart, it’s hard to imagine Bushman finding a way back to the Chiefs. Perhaps another team will give him a call down the line, but he’ll forever be a two-time champion regardless.
