Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid recently addressed questions about wide receiver Rashee Rice and a shooting incident that occurred while Rice was at Southern Methodist University (SMU). 

Reid confirmed the team was aware of the situation before drafting Rice. Last month, it was reported that Rice had off-field issues that were complicated by an incident during his time at SMU. 

According to the report, Rice and some friends went to an SMU basketball game believing former SMU basketball player Kendric Davis was seeing Rice’s girlfriend. Someone in Rice’s group allegedly fired multiple bullets into Davis's empty car.

When asked if the Chiefs knew about this before drafting Rice, Reid said, “We knew enough to draft him, you know, and then we just went with the process and we found that it was satisfactory for us.” He declined to elaborate further on the matter.

It's believed that all NFL teams were aware of this incident during the pre-draft process. If Rice faces punishment for any current off-field issues, this past incident could potentially impact the severity of his discipline.
