Ryan Succop Nickname Mr. Irrelevant

The Kansas City Chiefs selected him in the seventh round (256th overall) during the 2009nNFL draft. He was the last player drafted him, earning him the nickname of Mr. Irrelevant.

 “I didn’t choose to be Mr. Irrelevant. It just worked out that way. I’m just trying not to get caught up in it and focus more on the task at hand, which is trying to come in here and help the team. It’s not one of those things I really think about too much, to be honest.”

Todd Haley Kansas City Chiefs’ former head coach and former general manager Scott Pioli also gave him a piece of advice.

“That’s a worry. This ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ has become such a big thing,” Haley said. “We just kind of reminded him that he was the last pick in the draft, so he had his work cut out for him making this team, and try not to be distracted any more than any of the other players — that he had a job to try to win.”

Paige and Ryan announced they were expecting a son on Febryary 27, 2015; they welcomed their son Cooper on August 25, 2015. Cooper was born with a condition hip dysplasia in his left hip and had to wear a Pavlik harness for a couple of months after birth. Her orthopedist told her that Cooper was doing fine, but he had to wear a spica cast for 3 to 4 weeks, Cooper couldn’t be able to move from the waist down, Paige was devastated but then her faith lift her up, this is what she told the NFL Wife Handbook.

Cooper was casted when he was 4 weeks old. Instead of spending a month or more in the cast as planned, Cooper only spent 24 hours. We truly feel as if the Lord intervened that day by sending us to get a second opinion on his hip. After meeting with the new doctor, I knew we needed to switch. Ryan and I prayed about the decision and felt clear that God had opened the door to go a different method.

I remember immediately feeling a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. It was in this moment of clarity that I felt God saying, “Paige, you are doing a great job, you are an amazing mom, I will get you through this time. Trust in me”. It was all I needed! Through the months of agonizing over the harness and cast and switching doctors and the uncertain future, I knew that everything was going to be okay.


God showed Ryan and me that He was present. I wish I could say that I never worried and always felt peace because I trusted God through this time but to be honest, I know I wasn’t trusting Him as I should. I put everything on my own shoulders instead of giving it to Him. I then prayed and thanked the Lord that Cooper was born with an issue that could be fixed.

I opened my eyes to the many babies who are born with illnesses that cannot be fixed. I prayed for strength to get through these times, and I felt an overwhelming peace that I had not been able to feel since Cooper was born. After 4 months of wearing the harness, Cooper was given the green light to take it off! By then he was changing every day with a budding new personality, and I was finally feeling like I had settled into motherhood.


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight” Proverbs 3: 5-6


This verse has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. When I feel doubt, worry or fear creeping into my mind, I repeat this verse over and over and am reminded of God’s faithfulness and truth! There is nothing that we will face in life that He has not faced before us!

Paige, Ryan and Cooper revealed they were adding a new member to their beautiful family on October 5, 2019. Their little Reese Collins Succop made it to this world on March 17, 2018, The proud father of two made the annoucement on Instagram.
