KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For a few nervous moments, courtesy of his Kansas City Chiefs teammates, rookie wide receiver Skyy Moore thought his bank account would be nearly $23,000 lighter.
A group of veteran players, including Marquez Valdes-Scantling, hosted a dinner at a Kansas City restaurant for the team’s wide receivers last weekend. They agreed in advance with the restaurant that a bill totaling $22,730 — including $18,000 for food and $2,000 for wine — would be billed to Moore, a second-round draft pick, at the end of the night. should be delivered.
Nobody told Moore before. Valdes-Scantling said in his first season with the Chiefs he had his gag pulled when he was a rookie with the Green Bay Packers, including by Davante Adams.

“I feel like I just had to pass on the tradition,” said Valdes-Scantling. “It was fun. I enjoyed it. They bring out a fake bill, say your card is declined, then you have to call your bank and call your financial advisor and then everyone laughs at you.
“They brought out the bill, they ran his card twice, got rejected. He had to call his financial advisor, phoned the bank and then we brought him [Moore in on the joke]. So he sweated for a good five minutes. That’s a long five minutes, man.”
