Mahomes, Chiefs' offseason coordinator, said that Mahomes' initial reaction was shock. Although you knew this was possible, you were not prepared for him to go. He wanted to be able “to hang out in the locker and do that stuff more than on the field.”
“But you are happy for him. His contract was a good one, with a $42 million extension and $72.2M guarantee. He is back in his offseason home, where he can spend time with his family and other stuff. I wish him the best.”
The Chiefs are still in tight endHill was Hill's second-ranked receiver in yards and receptions last season. They have also signed wide receivers as free agents And .
Kansas City could also add one or more wide receivers to its draft. The draft has two picks each of the first four rounds.
Mahomes stated, “We just have to keep rolling.” That's how it works in this league. It's not just about friendships, it's also about business. We know that in order to succeed in this league we must keep learning and improving. I worked quickly with these new receivers and tried to make sure we had success this year.
Hill's absence is still significant. In his four seasons at Mahomes, Hill caught 343 passes for 4,854 yard and 43 touchdowns.
Mahomes said, “We'll need to find production in a different way than we did last season because Tyreek was so important to our offense.” “I think that you've seen in some games when we've not had Tyreek, or other people, and I expect this to happen again, as well.”
