KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City native and First Things First host Nick Wright took time Monday morning to call for disgruntled ex-Cleveland Brown wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to join the Kansas City Chiefs after being released from the team and clearing waivers.
Beckham Jr. reached an agreement with the Browns for his release after nearly 3 years with the team.
Wright, known for hot takes and unwavering support of the Chiefs, offered the three-time Pro Bowler room and board, a tour of the city guided by the mayor and a lifetime supply of Kansas City’s famous barbecue.
Specifically, Wright said OBJ could stay at the home he still owns in the Kansas City metro while he got settled into the city.
Wright followed up his comments by tweeting Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas asking if he would be ready to host the wide receiver on a tour.
Lucas agreed saying he would be ready any day of the week and is “warming up the barbecue.”
During Wright’s monologue, he said the Chiefs would be a perfect fit for a player looking to make an immediate impact on the offensive side of the ball.
“Don’t you want to go somewhere where a team’s all of the sudden getting hot, but a team’s offense is stalling? A team’s offense, that if all of the sudden gets going, you can get the credit, my friend?” Wright said.
“Don’t you want to go somewhere for the first time in your career where a quarterback has the arm strength to actually hit you on those fly routes you’re so good at? A team that has diverse personalities and who by the way, could use your mentoring. Maybe the quarterback’s little brother could use some social media tips.”
Beckham Jr. has expressed interest in joining a contender. Despite Kansas City’s slow start, they are the two-time reigning AFC Champions and boast the talent of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce on offense.
Kansas City is coming of two-straight victories for the first time this season and have an above .500 record for the first time since week 1.
The Chiefs will travel to Las Vegas on Sunday to take on the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.
