ger Brett Veach went into greater detail during an availability with the Kansas City media:Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach went on local radio station WHB and was asked about the video of Patrick Mahomes playing basketball that recently hit social media.ESPN’s Adam Teicher transcribed Veach’s words regarding the video.“The Kingdom can be assured: No more basketball for Pat . . . We were able to nip that in the bud Mitchell Schwartz Jersey ,” Veach said, per Teicher.Back on Tuesday, I called the video the best and scariest thing you’d watch all day, and I stand by that. While it is a cool thing for fans to know that Mahomes is good at everything and one of the best pure athletes in the world, there is absolutely no reason to be risking what matters the most—his NFL career and a potential $200 million contract in a year’s time.Mahomes is the league’s most valuable player; losing a season to rec basketball would be a travesty.San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman weighed in late Thursday morning.What do you think?

Collinsworth may be the best football analyst in the business, and we here at Arrowhead Pride have tremendous respect for the PFF team’s work.So we submitted a question, and it led to an excellent roundtable discussion regarding the Chiefs offseason from guys who know what they’re talking about.The roundtable (Chiefs answer begins around the 49-minute mark)My takeI have liked the Chiefs offseason thus far.It does not take a rocket (or PFF) scientist to realize the defense needed a major overhaul. Ridding your team of Eric Berry, Dee Ford and Justin Houston and bringing in an entire new defensive staff and scheme does just that.The one move that sticks with me that I didn’t like is getting rid of Ford. I would have never signed Ford to a long-term deal, but to me, a franchise-tag Christian Okoye Jersey , prove-it deal was perfect. There are now no elite EDGE rushers on the team.That is why I like PFF’s suggestion that the Chiefs may be ahead of the curve — where in today’s league (based upon analytics), coverage matters much more than pass rush. That is probably why the Chiefs were willing to spend $12 million of cap space for a year of Earl Thomas. The 2009 comparison to the New Orleans Saints is the best part of this whole discussion, in my opinion. Running people out of the court in 2018 was fun when it worked, but as we saw, that isn’t a safe recipe for winning against the best teams in the league in the playoffs.If the Chiefs can slow the game down and the shift to zone means more turnovers, as Palazzolo suggests , we could be talking about a historic regular season. Mahomes is that good and at the age of 23, should still get better.I’ve thought for a long time that the Chiefs should prioritize a pass rusher with their top pick in the NFL Draft. But based upon this chat, perhaps a cornerback or safety makes more sense.Maybe because of the scheme change and the other offseason additions, the Chiefs feel good enough to go best player available, and that could be on offense.Regardless of the direction, it will be fascinating to watch.
