The episode kicked off with a serious discussion with Kroy and vow renewal officiant and fellow former Atlanta Falcons player, Coy Wire. While at Kim and Kroy’s “rehearsal dinner,” Wire wasted no time in asking his pal about the tough reality of his perpetual free agent status since being released from his Buffalo Bills contract in 2016.

Kroy then opened up about his short-lived experience with the Buffalo Bills saying, “I got there, I had the defense down pretty much, and then somewhere going into the third week I started getting the cold shoulder.” Kroy added calmly, “The final game I think I gave up one final run. They said that play drive made some of their determination.”

When Coy asked how the “grim reaper” of being let go felt, Kroy responded, “You feel, kind of like, like you’re less than. Somebody’s telling you that you’re not good enough.” In a testimonial Kroy elaborated saying, “There’s nothing out there left. Someone who goes to college and wants to be a doctor, you could do those careers for 40 years. … It’s hard for people to understand.”
