Rashee Rice ‘is old enough to know better’, says FURIOUS Keyshawn Johnson – who compares Chiefs star, 23, to jailed Henry Ruggs as it emerges cops suspect him of racing his Corvette before crashing and fleeing

Keyshawn Johnson drove into Rashee Rice on Monday’s Undisputed after it emerged that the Chiefs Super Bowl winner is suspected by Dallas police of racing his Corvette before crashing and fleeing the scene.

Police have been trying to find Rice, 23, because the Corvette is registered in his name and the Dallas News reported Sunday that they believe the Kansas City star was driving.

Johnson, himself a Super Bowl winner with the Bucs in 2003, didn’t hesitate when discussing the incident with Skip Bayless on Monday morning.

“I know him,” Johnson said. ‘He’s old enough to know better. So I’m ruined on him.

‘I already texted him. He’s not going to respond to me because my text wasn’t nice. I spent a lot of time with him last year before the Draft, here in Los Angeles, but also in Dallas, trying to help him understand that life is about to begin.

“He wasn’t the squeakiest, cleanest guy around and that’s probably why he fell to the second round instead of the late first round. Went into a great situation in Kansas City, great environment.

‘I’m really angry with him. He knows better, I know he knows better. I understand that you want to be with the homies, that you want to hang out. I get all that. But everyone should know better.”

Johnson then drew comparisons to Henry Ruggs, who is in prison after pleading guilty to drunken driving in a collision that resulted in the deaths of 23-year-old woman Tina Tintor and her dog.

Ruggs was the 12th overall pick in the 2020 Draft and signed a four-year, $16 million deal with the Raiders.

“In the end, all it takes is (clicks fingers). All you have to do is look at Henry Ruggs. I knew him too,” Johnson said.

“Try to tell him the same thing. It’s different now, in certain situations you don’t get the pass that you would get at university.

‘I don’t know if he was driving, I don’t know if he wasn’t driving, I don’t know anything about it. I hope someone stole his car.

“But if he’s involved, that’s the stupidest thing he could ever be involved in. Driving fast cars, racing someone, it’s the dumbest thing he could ever do, man. If I want to race, I go to a track. I’m mad at him man, I really am. He knows better.’

Rice grew up in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills, Texas, and spent all four years of his college career in Dallas at SMU.

He recorded 79 catches and 938 yards with a team-leading seven touchdown receptions in 16 games (eight starts) after being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

He also had 26 catches for 262 yards and a score in four playoff games to help the Chiefs secure their second straight Super Bowl title.

He set a franchise rookie playoff record with 130 receiving yards in January’s 26–7 playoff win over the Miami Dolphins, drawing high praise from Travis Kelce.

“I’m proud of him,” Kelce said. “I think he’s come a long way and I think he’s still rising as a player in this offense. It was just fun to see him rise to the occasion and catapult us in a lot of ways, both in the passing game and the run game.”

Patrick Mahomes is also an admirer and heaped praise on his teammate after Kansas City’s comeback win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 8.

‘He’s a man who wants it. That’s the biggest thing. He wants to be great,” Mahomes said. “He has a chance to be a great receiver in this league, and we will continue to push him to do so.”

Mahomes and Rice also spent the offseason practicing together earlier in March, with the focus already turning to the upcoming season, where the Chiefs will aim for an unprecedented Super Bowl three-peat.
