James-Michael Johnson is a good egg.

Chiefs linebacker stepped up to help replace 300 stolen turkeys from homeless shelter


Kansas City Chiefs linebacker James-Michael Johnson might not be a household name in the NFL. But he is a hero to some hungry people this Thanksgiving season.

Johnson heard about a homeless shelter in his hometown of Fairfield, Calif. having 300 turkeys stolen that were meant to be served to the needy, and he made sure the good folks at Mission Solano were not left hanging by a wing and a prayer.

According to KCTV-5 in Kansas City, Johnson helped replace the missing turkeys so that a lot of down-and-out people can enjoy a nice Thanksgiving dinner. Nice work, man.

"I figured I am in a situation where I can help, where I can give back, so that is something I wanted to do," Johnson said.
Mind you, Johnson was a fourth-round pick last year, with a rookie salary of $496,000. With turkeys costing between a dollar or two per pound, a 300-turkey bill could run Johnson somewhere in the $10,000 range.

Heartwarming story from an NFL player just wanting to make a difference.

A better question is how the **** 300 of them all of a sudden come up missing. It's not like someone just grabbed them real quick like and ran away.

Seriously. That has to be some well organized heist.

For 300 turkeys.

Coonsidering that there's no guarantee that he'll even have a job next year, this is far more generous than any millionaire player.

I think Butterball donated them and took them back, out of fear of a turkey shortage. They were planning on replacing them with quinoa burgers before that meddling Royals linebacker got involved.

They'd have gotten away with it, too, because scientific evidence is extremely strong in proving that homeless people love quinoa.
