Patrick Mahomes backed by Kansas City Chiefs GM to be competitive despite losing Tyreek Hill

 

Kansas City Chiefs and general manager Brett Veach are banking on the greatness of their superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs GM thinks he’s the centerpiece of all his plans, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s offseason departure will just mean a new way to win. The organization relies more on its star man, who is the core of this franchise for many years.

 

 

During a pre-Draft press conference, Veach spoke about the Chiefs and their strong winning mentality as he said, “I think, and I’ve said this before, when you have Pat Mahomes, I think we’re wired to go after that every year. Just because you trade a great player doesn’t mean we’re in rebuilding mode by any means. It just means we’re going to find a new set of resources and try to get aggressive.”

The big money trade to the Miami Dolphins saw the franchise receive five draft picks for their electrifying WR Hill. He signed a 4-year, $120 million deal with his new team as the Chiefs enter a new era for next season. However, losing Hill didn’t stop the Chiefs from signing two talented wide receivers, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, in free agency.

The former Super Bowl champion will get his entire offensive line back, with Chiefs TE Travis Kelce stepping up to take on a bigger role. Last season, Kelce was impressive, finishing with 92 catches for 1,125 yards and 9 TDs. The 7-time Pro Bowler will relish the opportunity to have a bigger effect on games this season with Mahomes throwing passes.

While they will lose their defensive juggernaut in safety Tyrann Mathieu, they have made some additions to cover that loss. The acquisition of promising linebacker Nick Bolton and three-time Pro Bowl manager Chris Jones will be eager to fill that void. It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs adjust to all these new players in all areas of the field.

The 2022 NFL campaign will bring its own set of challenges for the team, but with Mahomes dictating the game, a Super Bowl appearance is a real possibility. The Nation of Chiefs will appear in great numbers to support and encourage them to improve in a rare year off in 2021.
