Kansas City General Manager Brett Veach believed in Patrick Mahomes long before the Chiefs decided to trade up for him in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. But when he really knew he made the right call was when Mahomes showed up to his rookie training camp and wowed Michael Vick.Chiefs coach Andy Reid invited Vick Womens Harrison Butker Jersey , whom he coached in Philadelphia, to come to training camp in 2017 and spend some time with the rookies. Veach told today that Vick came away amazed by the things Mahomes could do.“Mike Vick came by for a few days to do some coaching work with our young guys,” Veach recalled. “There were a couple throws Pat made, and I remember being in the film room with Mike and he was like, ‘Did he just do that? I’ve never seen that.’ We were joking, ‘This is Mike Vick!’ A quarterback like Mike Vick says he’s never seen something?”Vick is one of the most impressive athletes ever to play the quarterback position, so it takes a lot to impress him. But Mahomes did it. And now Mahomes is impressing everyone in the NFL. CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora continues to push the idea that the Chiefs will make an offseason splash on the offensive side of the football."A little less than a month ago Daniel Sorensen Jersey , I drafted an article: “Your “Will the Chiefs trade for Antonio Brown?” post.”I described that while it would be nice to add 114 receptions, 1,524 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2019 (based upon Brown’s six-year average), it was evident that the Chiefs would not trade for Brown.And while I still believe that to be the case, I do have a question as to why it won’t happen.Fast forward to this week.During an offseason in which the Chiefs have already made rebuilding their defense a priority, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora continues to tie the Chiefs to offensive changes.On March 1, La Canfora connected the Chiefs to free agent running back Le’Veon Bell. On Wednesday , he wrote about how a team would hit a home run if they were to sign soon-to-be former Chiefs RB Spencer Ware.On Thursday, he tied the Chiefs to Brown, who the Steelers have reportedly made available for trade.The inference that can be made from La Canfora’s quote is that the Chiefs picked up the phone and called the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are expected to have a deal in place by Friday. Some believe that the bidding for Brown is a “one-team race,” the Oakland Raiders being the odds-on favorite to land the 30-year-old receiver.But The Ringer’s Kevin Clark chimed in with quotes made by Chiefs general manager Brett Veach from last preseason that caught my eye. Veach told Clark he was looking for receivers who do not “get paralyzed when they run their route.”Sounds like something that might play well with Patrick Mahomes’ improvisational magic. The quote also reminded me of some of the things the Chiefs said about WR Sammy Watkins when the they signed him last offseason.Chiefs head coach Andy Reid called Watkins a blue-chip player, and Veach said things like this:The Steelers presented a player who Veach covets but will never again have the chance at acquiring.Do I think Veach picked up the phone? Absolutely, I do. And the Steelers Womens Travis Kelce Jersey , if they were smart, politely hung up, unwilling to give the strongest AFC contenders of the next decade another way to beat them.
