Though the end of the preseason may doom his wishes to go unfulfilled, Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Danny Shelton wants to re-create an iconic play from the team’s history during the 2023 season.
The appropriately named “Bloated Tebow” pass was a play designed for defensive tackle Dontari Poe back in 2016 where the lineman took a snap from shotgun on the goal line and threw the ball to former Chiefs tight end Demetrius Harris for a touchdown.
Always wanted to do this! Gotta check it off my bucket list. https://t.co/POZ0NVXc4S

When a fan on Twitter tagged Shelton in a post and asked for the play to be featured this season, the former first-round pick made it clear that passes like these are in his wheelhouse.
“Always wanted to do this,” Shelton wrote. “Gotta check it off my bucket list.”
Shelton may get his chance to revive this spectacular play in 2023 if Kansas City jumps out to a big lead against another divisional opponent at some point during their Super Bowl defense campaign.
