That always seemed about right when it came to not just their longest-tenured player but also an essential part of the connective tissue of the living, breathing organism within the room — a microcosm of the impact he has had on the broader Kansas City community with his charitable work.
“A great mentor,” quarterback Patrick Mahomes said last fall, adding that Colquitt embodies doing things the right way and “has a tip for everything.”
