Former Chiefs WR/folk legend Bobby Sippio has found a new team. He will be playing for the Orlando Predators of the AFL.
Sippio is widely considered the best Arena Football player in the game today having been named First Team All-Arena in his last season of Arena Football.
Sippio has previously played Arena Football with the Chicago Rush, Tampa Bay Storm and Dallas Desperados and spent time in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions. He led the Arena Football League with an amazing 53 touchdown receptions during the 2007 campaign with Chicago.
“Bobby brings a unique skill set to our team”, said Head Coach Pat O’Hara. “Bobby brings a dynamic winning attitude to the game and we are blessed to have him. I’m also excited that he will be able to showcase his talents in his hometown”.
After leading the AFL in touchdowns in 2007 he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs where he made the team’s final 53 man roster. During Chiefs training camp, he was heavily featured on the HBO series Hard Knocks. Later released by the Chiefs, Sippio spent time in the United Football League with the California Redwoods and the Florida Tuskers. At 6’3″ and 215 pounds, Sippio will be among the tallest receivers in the Arena Football League and make him a difficult target to cover.
“I have always wanted to play in Orlando,” said Sippio. “Having played my high school ball here, the opportunity to play in front of my friends and family in ‘The Jungle’ is something I am looking forward to”.
The legend of Bobby Sippio will never die!
It’s amazing how a player with a total of 2 special teams tackles and one punt return for 6 yards can have staying power with Chiefs fans.
