Mizzou reunion: 4 former Tigers reunite after Chiefs' win over Broncos
It was a Mizzou reunion at the conclusion of Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos.
Four former Tigers came together to take a photo at Empower Field at Mile High, and all of them were recently with the program and are now early into their NFL careers. From the Broncos, there was second-year quarterback Drew Lock and rookie tight end Albert Okwuegbunam. From the Chiefs, there was rookie offensive lineman Yasir Durant and assistant special teams coach Andy Hill.
The photo of the four was shared on Twitter on Monday by current Missouri graduate defensive assistant Beyah Rasool:

Although the Chiefs won, 43-16, Lock and Okwuegbunam were the former Tigers players most involved in the game. Lock, a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, went 24-for-40 for 254 yards and two interceptions. Okwuegbunam, a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, led the Broncos with seven receptions for 60 yards.
Durant is a backup on Kansas City’s offensive line after he signed with the team as an undrafted free agent earlier this year. Hill is in his first season on the Chiefs’ staff after spending 24 seasons as an assistant at Missouri from 1996-2019.
While these four may not have been on the same page during Sunday’s game, all will surely be rooting for the Tigers when Saturday gets here. Mizzou is looking for its third straight win when it travels to face No. 10 Florida for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff on SEC Network Alternate.
