The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs traded celeb wideout Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins this offseason, but quarterback Patrick Mahomes believes in the group’s depth.
He told newshounds Thursday:
“That’s what you are going to seem at with this offense this year. It could most likely per chance be every person. It is now not all going to be one guy. Clearly [Travis Kelce] is gentle going to ranking a selection of completions, a selection of yards but your total receiving room is going to procure enormous days and that will moreover be something we consume to our advantage.”
The 32-year-historical Kelce, a seven-time Pro Bowler and future Hall of Famer who caught 92 passes for 1,125 yards and nine touchdowns final season, will lead the ability.
The bigger ask is how a much less-confirmed neighborhood of wideouts will replace Hill.
Free-agent signings JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, 2nd-spherical consume Skyy Moore and undrafted free agent Justyn Ross is mostly a part of Mecole Hardman and Josh Gordon in a revamped receiver neighborhood.
Ross went viral this week for a one-handed consume at organized group actions.

“It is miles a extraordinarily deep receiving room. It is difficult to screech which guys are going to ranking it attributable to now we procure received so many loyal receivers,” Mahomes stated. “That’s what you have to presumably like. You indulge in to procure that competition. You indulge in to procure guys competing on each day foundation to ranking the roster attributable to they’re going to relief us in the discontinuance.”
Nevertheless of that neighborhood, handiest Smith-Schuster (2018) and Gordon (2013) procure ever played in a Pro Bowl. Hill has been chosen to 6 and is arguably the NFL’s most threatening playmaker on the location.
Whereas Hill caught 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine scores final season, the four Chiefs receivers who played in the NFL final year blended for 105 catches for 1,284 yards and six scores (even though it’ll gentle be noted that Smith-Schuster handiest played 5 games attributable to a shoulder injury).
So the Chiefs can procure to trade their offensive philosophy. Without Hill, their assault is merely going to be much less threatening. As prolonged as they’ve Mahomes, even though, no defense will delight in going by Kansas Metropolis.
