As the Kansas City Chiefs try to come to grips with Saturday’s events, the senseless decision of linebacker Jovan Belcher to kill the mother of his child and then himself resonates even more strongly with one of the Chiefs players.

Randy Moss of NFL Network explained at the top of NFL Gameday Morning that the wife of running back Jamaal Charles and Kasandra Perkins were cousins.  Also, Moss explains that Charles’ wife introduced Perkins to Belcher.

We continue to extend our condolences to every member of the Chiefs organization, and to the family and friends of Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins.
