Andy Reid: Hollywood Brown, Patrick Mahomes showing early chemistry

Kansas City’s newest wideout is already raising eyebrows in Phase 3 of its offseason workouts.

Entering the early days of their 2024 championship defense, the Kansas City Chiefs are working to sharpen one portion of their already potent offense.

“I think y’all saw today, we tried to throw a few more deep passes,” quarterback Patrick Mahomes told reporters on Wednesday as the team continued Phase 3 of its offseason workouts at the team facility in Kansas City.

“Get back to the deep game,” Mahomes said.

“I think we’ve done a great job of mastering the intermediate and short stuff, but...

Chiefs have 13th most athletic team in the NFL, according to one metric

But does Kansas City’s score tell the whole story?

In a recent thread on X, Kent Lee Platte, the brains behind the RAS (Relative Athletic Score), published a ranking of all NFL teams based on their overall athleticism score. The Kansas City Chiefs were ranked 13th on the list with an average player RAS of 7.497.

What is RAS?

Relative Athletic Score (RAS) is a metric that combines the various categories measured at the NFL Combine — height, weight, wingspan, drill exercises — into one aggregate number that’s then contextualized against other athletes of the same position.

Patrick Mahomes says deep ball will open opportunities for defense to blitz

Speaking with ESPN’s PatMcAfee, Kansas City’s quarterback covered a wide range of topics.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes recorded an interview for Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s “Pat McAfee Show.”

Just as he had done while speaking with Kansas City reporters that day, Mahomes said that the team was “going to get back to throwing the deep ball” — but this time, that will allow defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to do his thing.

“When we get up,” he explained, “that’s when Spagnuolo can really show off all those blitzes he’s working on, man. I’m glad...

Stephon Gilmore will turn 34 before Week 2, and cornerback is a position where players usually don’t play long into their 30s. But Gilmore was rock solid for the Dallas Cowboys last season, starting all 17 games.

While he isn’t the same athlete he was coming out of South Carolina, he is still an incredibly savvy player who can play on...

Patrick Mahomes teases return of Kansas City’s deep passing game

Kansas City’s star quarterback spoke from OTAs on Thursday.

Although the Kansas City Chiefs returned to the team facility this week for organized team activities (OTAs), the media did not get a look at this year’s squad until their third practice on Wednesday.

As he prepares for his eighth professional season, quarterback Patrick Mahomes previewed a hopeful return of Kansas City’s vaunted deep passing attack that delivered a Super Bowl in his second season as a starter.

He admits, however, that the dominating defense that helped seal the Chiefs’ most recent title is not easy to practice against.

The return game will drastically change for the Chiefs and the rest of the NFL.

With new kickoff rules taking effect this season, Kansas City Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub has even more flexibility in play calls, given the roster's depth. In place of Toub, who wasn't available on Wednesday, head coach Andy Reid spoke about the new rules and what they may mean for the Chiefs in 2024.

"It's going to be interesting," previewed Reid. "There seem to be some options that you can do with [the new rules] — a little bit like the run game, potentially…...

Trent McDuffie knows he must expand his leadership role in Year 3

Kansas City’s phenom cornerback recognizes the big shoes needing to be filled without L’Jarius Sneed.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ organized team activities (OTAs) started this week, two months after the team traded cornerback L’Jarius Sneed to the Tennessee Titans. It’s the first opportunity for the Chiefs’ defense to take the field as a unit without one of its most impactful players from 2023.

However, the team didn’t lose the cornerback that earned first-team All-Pro honors last year. That would be Trent McDuffie, entering his third season as a former first-round pick. He made a name for himself last year, topping...

Andy Reid has big plans for Rashee Rice in 2024

On Wednesday, Kansas City’s head coach spoke about what Rice can do — and what he can do better.

While the Kansas City Chiefs’ second-year wide receiver Rashee Rice has had an offseason he might prefer to forget, he is still on the team — and on Wednesday, he was alongside his teammates for the OTA session at the team’s practice facility.

Speaking to the media after practice, head coach Andy Reid said he intends to increase Rice’s utilization in the offense.

“[But] at the same time,” he noted, “[we have to] make sure he takes what he wasn’t doing...

Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid on Rashee Rice incidents: ‘That was a big mistake’

Kansas City’s head coach and quarterback hope to see their wide receiver learn from the Dallas incidents.

The Kansas City Chiefs are no strangers to high expectations — and the pressures arising from being one of the NFL’s premier teams.

In this offseason, however, off-the-field issues have put the Chiefs under even more scrutiny. The team’s promising wide receiver Rashee Rice — now entering the second year of his career — was reported to be a suspect in an alleged assault at a Dallas nightclub earlier this month. While the apparent victim in the more recent incident has told Dallas...
