The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the most successful franchises in the NFL over the past few seasons. They managed to secure consecutive entries into the Super Bowl in 2020 and 2021 and showed their quality last season as well.
Ahead of the 2022 season, the Chiefs have made wholesale changes in terms of personnel in the offensive half, as they look to move away from their tried and tested players. However, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is confident that they will cope up nicely, cometh the season.
Patrick Mahomes claims that the offensive duties will be shared by his teammates in the upcoming season
The Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins and brought in Marquez Valdes-Scantlin and JuJu Smith-Schuster to replace him. Only time will tell, whether the move will pay off or not, but at the moment Patrick Mahomes only sees good things about his new teammates during their OTA.
The 26-year old called on every player on the offensive side of their play to step up, and he believes that the workload will be shared amongst everyone equally, rather than people winning them matches on their own.
“That’s what you’re going to see with this offense this year,” Patrick Mahomes said Thursday. “It’s going to be everybody. It’s not all going to be one guy. Obviously [Travis Kelce] is still going to get a lot of completions, a lot of yards but the whole receiving room is going to have big days and that can be something we use to our advantage.”
“It’s a very deep receiving room. It’s hard to tell which guys are going to make it because we’ve got so many good receivers. That’s what you want. You want that competition. You want guys competing every single day to make the roster because they’re going to help us in the end.”
