After wrestling with how to properly acknowledge a player who killed the mother of his infant daughter then killed himself on Saturday, the Chiefs have decided to conduct a moment of silence on Sunday for all victims of domestic violence.

According to Randy Moss of NFL Network, the Chiefs also will keep linebacker Jovan Belcher’s locker intact, at least for now.

The situation surely creates many conflicting emotions and thoughts for Chiefs players, who lost a teammate under unprecedented circumstances.  We continue to wish them well as they struggle with this tragedy.

    I’m thankful they retained perspective on both the murdered girlfriend and the 3 month old baby girl.

    Exact right move by the Chiefs Brass today. Gotta give them a ton of credit for not villifying one of their own, but also for not glorifying the memory of someone that made two terrible decisions and affected many with his actions yesterday.
