Kansas City Chiefs training camp opened up Tuesday with Chiefs’ rookies, quarterback and players on injured reserve all present. Andy Reid, QB Patrick Mahomes and rookie Mecole Hardman all spoke to the media, but there is one name in particular who everyone is hoping to see at the podium: Tyreek Hill. Will he speak publicly at training camp? NFL Daily host Harrison Graham explores that topic and more on today’s show.
Tyreek Hill has been a major storyline for the Chiefs, but defensive linemen Chris Jones might be a bigger one. Jones is reportedly considering a holdout as he waits for a contract extension. Will he show up? He must report by August 6th to receive an accrued season. Which rookie will have the biggest impact as a rookie? Mecole Hardman’s chances certainly dipped once Tyreek Hill did not get suspended. Safety Juan Thornhill should start and have a major role right away. Khalen Saunders and Darwin Thompson are two other names Harrison says to keep an eye on.
Sammy Watkins has had a few injury-plagued seasons, but is this the year the Chiefs wide receiver puts it all together? Watkins had a great offseason by all accounts and wants to contribute more to the Chiefs passing game. Patrick Mahomes is obviously the Chiefs starting quarterback, but who will be his backup? Will veteran Chad Henne get unseated? Chase Litton and Kyle Shurmur are hoping to have a great training camp and preseason for the Chiefs.
