Munich – Patrick Mahomes will have to do without Tyreek Hill in the coming season. The wide receiver was traded to the Miami Dolphins in late March. After the first training sessions, one thing is already clear to Mahomes: the Chiefs’ offense will change.
“Everyone’s going to be involved. It’s not going to be just one guy. Sure, Travis (Kelce) will be getting a lot of completions and a lot of yards, but every receiver is going to have big days. That’s something we can use to our advantage.” according to the 26-year-old.
Mahomes: Competition will help Chiefs
The superstar quarterback is confident in his receivers: “It’s a deep receiver room. It’s hard to say who’s going to make it because we have so many good receivers. But that’s what you want. You want, that the boys have to fight every day to make the squad. That will help us.”
In his four years as a starter, Mahomes threw 45 percent of his passes at Hill or Klece. The loss of the former must be caught in the coming season. In addition, the Chiefs have strengthened prominently with JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and rookie Skyy Moore.
After losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game, the 2020 Super Bowl winner is aiming for the next title.
