whether the Ravens did enough to obtain video of the punch that knocked out Rice’s then-fiancee. The Kareem Hunt case apparently won’t raise similar questions.Nate Taylor of TheAthletic.com reports Chris Conley Color Rush Jersey , citing multiple unnamed sources, that the Chiefs knew that video of the February incident existed, but that the NFL told the Chiefs to stop trying to get the video, once the NFL launched its own investigation.On the surface, it makes sense. The league, not the team, has exclusive jurisdiction over off-field, offseason matters of personal conduct. But the fact that the NFL failed to get the video gives the issue a far more unfortunate vibe.Let’s reconsider the league’s contentions regarding the efforts to get the video, as provided by a source with knowledge of the situation. The league contends that the聽hotel told the NFL that corporate policy permitted the hotel to surrender the video only to law enforcement. The NFL also contacted the Cleveland Police Department, which didn’t provide to the NFL any video.It’s now known that the Cleveland Police Department didn’t provide the video because the Cleveland Police Department didn’t get the video https://www.thechiefsfanshop.com/Anthony-Sherman-Jersey , because the Cleveland Police Department only wants video when the underlying offense is a felony. So the real question is what, if anything, the league said to the Cleveland Police Department to impress upon it the fact that the hotel won’t give the video to anyone but law enforcement and that the NFL is trying to enforce its own internal laws, but that the NFL can’t without cooperation from law enforcement.Here’s another question that the NFL needs to ponder for future cases. When caught in a predicament like this, with the entity in possession of a video unwilling to produce it to anyone but law enforcement and law enforcement unwilling to ask for it, what should the league do? One solution could be to opt for full transparency,. explaining in a non-accusatory fashion that no action can be taken against Hunt because no one will cooperate with the league’s efforts to get the video.聽The other solution, as suggested on Saturday, could be to adopt the same kind of relentlessness that characterizes the efforts of TMZ to get videos, even if it means paying for videos.Whatever the outcome Harrison Butker Jersey , it won’t be easy for the NFL to continue to make cursory efforts to get a video, abandon more aggressive strategies or approaches, and then simply say “well, we tried” whenever TMZ or some other media outlet succeeds. One of the best parts of working for Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is the opportunities that come with it. Including himself, Reid is indirectly responsible for one-fourth of the NFL’s head coaches.Panthers head coach Ron Rivera, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, Jets head coach Todd Bowles, Bills head coach Sean McDermott, Bears head coach Matt Nagy and Giants head coach Pat Shurmur all come from the Reid tree.John Harbaugh, who will bring his Baltimore Ravens to Arrowhead Sunday Daniel Sorensen Color Rush Jersey , is the eighth member of that tree.That brings us to special teams coordinator Dave Toub, who has gone on a number of head-coaching interviews over the years but has remained with the Chiefs as a special teams coordinator when they didn’t work out. Toub recently talked about Reid’s coaching development on a podcast with NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.Rapoport noted that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick once said that special teams coordinators make for the best head coaches.Toub, who has been a special teams coordinator for the past 14 seasons with the Chiefs and Bears (of course) agreed.Rapoport then asked Toub about how he and Reid come up with the 46-man roster each week. Teams are required to deem seven players on the 53-man roster inactive prior to games.Based upon Reid’s weekly press conferences, Toub’s answer may surprise you.As usual, Toub should be in the mix for open head-coaching positions at the end of this season. Here is to hoping Uncle Dave finally gets his well-deserved opportunity.Toub also talks to Rapoport about how Reid is handling the Kareem Hunt situation, his assistant head coach title, offseason conversations that led to special teams rule changes across the league and his son Shane’s coaching career.
