Chiefs make cameo in ‘Draft Day’ movie

For you movie buffs out there, the Chiefs made a brief appearance in the new Kevin Costner film “Draft Day,” which opened in theaters last week.

“First I would like to thank the Eagles organization, the Eagles fans and the city of Philadelphia for my time in Philly,” Jackson said. “ I would also like to thank coach Andy Reid for bringing me in.”
