CARDS: Topps XFL 2020 Green #83/99, Topps XFL 2020 Stars of the XFL ACQUIRED: TTM 2020, C/o Home SENT: 6/29/20 RECEIVED: 1/25/21 (210 days)
After going undrafted in 2015, was signed by the Houston Texans as a free agent.
Had a solid preseason, but with a logger jam at TE, the Texans traded Khari to Chicago.
Cut by the Bears in 2016, joined the Lions for 2016/17.
Claimed by the Bills in 2017, but later waived in 2018.
Selected in the 5th round of the 2019 XFL Draft by the DC Defenders.
After league ended season prematurely due to COVID, Khari signed with the Falcons in 2020.
Given an injury settlement, and joined Lions briefly for second stint.
When Khari was drafted by the DC Defenders I knew he’d be a solid fit for the team. I thought he was going to be a good fit with the Texans, especially based on what I saw. I ended up nabbing him with one of the final picks of my XFL Fantasy Draft, and he helped my team go undefeated in 2020 catching 8 passes, with 2 of them going for 2 TDs.
He kindly signed these cards for me- but did so, much to my chagrin, on the back. Khari also sent me back an extra autographed base card, that I sent off to my friend Mark, who had received cards back from Khari, but they were unsigned.

Andy had a lot of cards throughout his career. Oddly he didn’t make the cut with any of my favorite pet sets, but he happened to be in my favorite draft- 1989. His son currently plays OL for the Houston Texans.
