The Kansas City Chiefs are going to look very different on offense in 2022. While many would contend that their roster changes will make them worse, Patrick Mahomes sees a route to improvement.

Mahomes revealed that he has been working out with the team’s new wide receivers, including Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Chiefs quarterback suggested that balls he’s used to chalking up as overthrows are not anymore thanks to the size of his targets.

Previously, Chiefs receivers were more speed-focused. Tyreek Hill did hot have a huge frame, but was one of the fastest players in the game. Smith-Schuster and Valdes-Scantling are slower, but more physical.

The dynamic will be different, but Mahomes seems optimistic that the new Chiefs offense will still be as explosive as ever. That is an opinion shared by his coach as well.
