The Kansas City Chiefs, undoubtedly, have a tremendous squad. They did extremely well in the previous season and although they couldn’t reach the Super Bowl, one has to admit that they had all the credentials and the talent to win the coveted title.
One man who played a huge role in guiding the Chiefs to several wins was Tyreek Hill. So it would be fair to say that the Chiefs took quite a hit when they sent him to the Miami Dolphin. However, as it turns out, the Kansas Chiefs have succeeded in bringing in a pretty much like-to-like replacement.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling signs a three-year, $30 million deal with the Chiefs
The Chiefs have signed former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling. As reported by NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Chiefs have roped in MVS for a period of three years for which they have offered a $30 million deal. He will receive $18 million in the first two years of the contract.
“Former Packers’ WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is signing a three-year, $30 million deal worth up to $36 million with the Chiefs, per source. This is called living right: Valdes-Scantling goes from the NFL’s reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers to the NFL’s former MVP Patrick Mahomes,” Schefter informed on Twitter.
Moreover, Tom Pelissero reported that MVS might just turn out to be the perfect replacement for Hill as he is the only ball-carrier who has been clocked faster than Hill in the past two seasons. “Former Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was clocked at 21.91 mph in Week 14 of the 2020 season. The only ball-carrier who has been clocked faster in the past two seasons: new #Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who hit 22.09 mph in Week 11 last season,” he Tweeted.
Moreover, it seems as if Patrick Mahomes, the star QB for the Kansas City Chiefs is delighted with Hill’s replacement. He took to Twitter to let everyone know how excited he is to welcome MVS to the team. “Let’s get it,” Mahomes Tweeted while sharing Schefter’s Tweet about MVS’ deal.
It’ll be interesting to see if MVS can fill the void created in the side after Tyreek Hill found a new team for himself.
