Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice has found himself in legal trouble following his rookie NFL season. Rice is battling an alleged involvement in a highway car collision from late March. In addition, he is under investigation for alleged assault in a club in May. Nevertheless, Rice received a big organized team activities (OTA's) update on Monday.

With the Chiefs starting their OTA's, Rashee Rice will be attending and participting in all activities, Adam Shefter reports. The move is about shocking considering the legal matters Rice has been involved in, but rest assured the Chiefs have a plan to cooperate with the WR accordingly.

One of Rice's latest develoments surrounds an investigation for him allegedly hitting a photographer at a club in Dallas on May 6th. Dallas police officers reportedly interviewed witnesses about the incident that occurred at the address of Lit Kitchen. This investigation came shortly after his connected involvement in a multi-car collision.

Rice turned himself in to Glenn Heights, TX on April 11th after a warrant was issued for his role in the collision that left several people injured. The Chiefs receiver was reportedly taken to the DeSota jail, where he posted a $40,000 bond and was later released.

Rice's attorney Sen. Royce West released a statement amid his turn-in.

“Mr. Rashee Rice turned himself in today and was released on bond. I want to re-emphasize Mr. Rice's continued cooperation with law enforcement. Mr. Rice acknowledges his actions and feels deeply for those injured as a result of this accident. Our legal team is now tasked with reviewing all legal documents,” provided by WFAA.

Rice faces eight charges in the case—six counts of collision involving bodily injury, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury, and one count of aggravated assault. As West mentioned, the 23-year-old has been cooperating with police since the March 30th incident.

Rashee Rice looks to maintain activity with Chiefs amid legal battles 

Rice joined the Chiefs when the team selected him with the 55th pick in the second of the 2023 NFL Draft. The SMU product showed potential as a promising receiver for Patrick Mahomes. Rice amassed 938 yards and seven touchdowns on 79 receptions during his rookie year.

He was a part of a Kansas City core that won their third Super Bowl in five years. The Chiefs retain most of the pieces that have helped them to success, but everything arguably revolves around rising eighth-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes has been present for all three of Kansas City's titles during the 2020s era. Head coach Andy Reid shouted Mahomes out as the key to his and the team's success after their 2024 championship.

Reid told reporters at the 2024 Scouting Combine that the way to attain success as a coach is to “get a good quarterback,” per Nate Taylor. In addition, the veteran coach believes developing a QB is all about the teaching approach.

“You try to teach. That's why we're here. It's not about the plays. It's how you teach them,” Reid said.

It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs fare during the offseason amid Rashee Rice and the rest of the team's revamp.
