Priest Holmes Retires

Priest Holmes

After 11 years in the NFL, Chiefs RB Priest Holmes has announced his retirement due to a neck injury. Priest started his career with the Ravens then later became a star in Kansas City and one of the NFL's best RBs.

He has posted four seasons with 1,000 yards rushing, including three years with more than 1,400 yards. He amassed 8,172 rushing yards and 2,962 receiving yards with 86 TDs. In 2003, he set a then-NFL record with 27 touchdowns. The mark has since been broken twice. He is the Chiefs franchise's all-time leader in total touchdowns (83) and rushing touchdowns (76). We thank Priest for the excitement and passion he brought to the game.
