Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker wore a tie during the team’s White House visit that displayed the Latin phrase “Vulnerari Praesidio.” That translates to “protect the most vulnerable,” which is a pro-life message.

Butker is a devout Christian who has been open about his Catholic faith. That was obviously his way of sharing his beliefs without making a major statement at an event where his team was being acknowledged for their accomplishments.
We have seen plenty of players skip their team’s White House visit to make a point, but no Chiefs went that route.
