Falcons K Younghoe Koo says Jeep stolen, asks for cleats back

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo understandably was upset after alleging his black Jeep Grand Cherokee was stolen over the weekend.

Koo vented his displeasure over social media, however the 26-year-old Pro Bowl kicker also had an interesting request to whomever is responsible for the alleged theft of his SUV.

“MFs stole my Jeep smh,” Koo wrote on Instagram while showing his empty parking space. “Can you just bring my cleats back, though? I won’t even be mad bro — just bring all my cleats back so I can go kick.”

Considering Koo makes a living with his feet, perhaps his request makes a bit more sense.

Koo provided an update on Monday morning. He posted a screenshot that showed him lifting weights with a caption that read, “don’t stress over (expletive) you can’t control.”

He added, “Update: no car or cleats.”

Koo began his career with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017 before playing with the Atlanta Legends of the defunct Alliance of American Football in 2019. He later latched on with the Falcons as a replacement for Matt Bryant and made the Pro Bowl in 2020 after converting a league-leading 37 field goals in 39 attempts.
