Chiefs offensive tackles Wanya Morris and Chukwuebuka Godrick were arrested late Thursday evening for misdemeanor marijuana possession as Kansas City’s troubling offseason continues.

The two players were arrested in Johnson County, Kansas at 11:44 p.m. and booked around 1:35 a.m. Friday morning.

Morris and Godrick were released Friday afternoon after posting a $2,500 bond, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department.

Both Morris and Godrick pleaded not guilty to their charge Friday afternoon and are expected to appear in court on May 23.

Brad Gee, VP of Football Communications for Kansas City, says the club is aware of the situation.

Morris was the Chiefs’ third-round pick out of Oklahoma and is expected to compete for the starting left tackle position this season, while Godrick joined the Chiefs from Nigeria through the NFL’s International Player Pathway last season.

Though Godrick only appeared in preseason activity for the Chiefs last year, he was not out of the running for a spot this season.

Of course, all of this will depend on potential repercussions from the Chiefs and the NFL.

It’s the latest legal run-in for the team on the heels of Kansas City’s second straight Super Bowl win.

First-year receiver Rashee Rice is facing eight felony charges, a $1 million lawsuit and a likely suspension by the NFL after his involvement in a multi-car crash while reportedly racing a Lamborghini in April.

Rice turned himself in to the police after a warrant for his arrest was issued for him.

The six-car accident left multiple people injured and a young boy “shaking and crying” at the aftermath.

The 23-year-old also allegedly assaulted a photographer at a Dallas nightclub earlier this month, just weeks after the crash.

Kicker Harrison Butker is facing backlash for his controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College in Kansas, where he bashed President Biden, the LGBTQ community and said women were told “diabolical lies” about pursuing a career after graduation.

The reigning champs open their season on Sept. 5 against the Ravens, when their concerns can finally turn back to the on-field product.
