Being a healthy scratch didn’t stop Kadarius Toney from enjoying the Chiefs’ Super Bowl 2024 victory on his favorite social media platform.
The controversial ex-Giants receiver broadcast his celebration live from the locker room after Kansas City’s 25-22 overtime win over the 49ers on Sunday night.
Toney, wearing sunglasses, a red hoodie and a championship T-shirt, made his way around the locker room after he and the Chiefs won their second straight championship by rallying in overtime.
The Florida product appeared to be enjoying himself during the celebration, walking over to one smiling and shirtless teammate while yelling: “He owe y’all.”
The 25-year-old then made his way over toward the locker of fellow receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling as he posed for photos with a cigar after he caught three passes for 20 yards and one touchdown.
“…Going crazy,” Toney yelled. “You got to put a hat to the side…”
Eventually, some teammates jumped into the Live stream.
“It don’t matter what ya’ll do, ya’ll cant f–k with that,” one player said.
Another teammate said: “Ya’ll was talking about the Joka, huh? Tell ’em you got another one. Tell ’em you got another one.”
While Toney lived it up after the win, he did not help his teammates repeat as champions to cap what has been a weird end of the season for the former first-round pick.
It came one year after he scored a touchdown and recorded a 65-yard punt return — the longest in Super Bowl history — to help the Chiefs down the Eagles in Super Bowl 2023.
Toney did not play against the 49ers despite being off the injury report, and he seemingly accused the Chiefs of lying about his health status two-plus weeks ago when they declared him inactive for the AFC Championship game due to a hip injury and personal reasons.
He last played in Week 15.
“I’m not hurt. None of that s–t. Save that s–t. S–k my d–k too,” Toney said on Instagram Live. “I’m not hurt. None of that. It goes from hip to ankle to this to that.”
Toney then bizarrely said he was actually going after Giants fans, not the Chiefs, during his rant.
“It made it like I was attacking the one I love the most,” Toney told reporters at “Opening Night” ahead of Super Bowl 2024. “I never attacked the Chiefs. Never said anything about the Chiefs.
“Who I was referring to was the Giants fans, whoever people who might come at my live recording. I was referring to them, which I shouldn’t have.”
Toney now enters a critical offseason since it’s possible he may have put himself in the doghouse for good with the Chiefs with his late-season antics.
The Giants traded him away after selecting him in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and the Chiefs just proved they don’t need his help to win a Super Bowl.
His season is most remembered for his drops in Week 1 that led to the opening night loss to the Lions, and his offsides call that negated a go-ahead touchdown against the Bills in December.
Toney tallied 27 catches for 169 yards and one touchdown this past season.
