A simple moment during Wednesday’s Kansas City Chiefs practice may have summed up the state and identity of the offense as it gets ready to close training camp in St. Joseph on Thursday.
In the middle of seven-on-seven work, Patrick Mahomes attempted to connect on a deep ball with rookie wide receiver Mecole Hardman. The ball looked to be placed accurately, but Hardman slowed down and it sailed a few yards past him.
Mahomes yelled at Hardman: “You got to run!”
It’s a message Mahomes first presented to Hardman back in May, and one he has been preaching to the Chiefs’ veterans since he took over as starting quarterback a little more than a year ago.
