Andy Reid likes what he’s seen from Chiefs’ new receiver room | usatoday
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Reid gave an update on the progress of some of the new receivers and the team’s most veteran player at the position.
“Yeah, I really liked the way (JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling) worked,” Reid said. “They have a nice connection with Pat (Mahomes) up to this point. I’d be curious to see how it gets when there are live bullets and all that stuff. We’ll see how that rolls but I wouldn’t expect anything much different than what I’ve been seeing. And the other guys too have worked in there. Mecole (Hardman) has upped his game here and done a nice job. Our young kid, Skyy (Moore), he’s mixed in there and he’s been good. I like the mixture that we’ve got going.”

POLL: Should Chiefs consider trading for Bears EDGE Robert Quinn?
The Kansas City Chiefs still have a number of ways to improve their roster ahead of the 2022 NFL season. One of those ways — perhaps Brett Veach’s favorite way to improve his roster — is to make a trade.
It’s easy to see why teams inquired, though. Last season, the 31-year-old had a career year, recording 49 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 47 pressures and 18.5 sacks. He makes a lot of sense for a team like K.C. given their need for pass-rush help and the fact that Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo drafted Quinn in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft when he was head coach of the St. Louis Rams.

Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid discuss conditioning test day | chiefswire
The Kansas City Chiefs utilized their last day of mandatory minicamp on Thursday to address their team’s conditioning. Head coach Andy Reid and All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes took time during their Thursday press conference to talk about the conditioning test the team went through as minicamp comes to a close.
“Alright, the guys finished up today,” Reid brgan. “They had a little conditioning thing we did today, and they did a nice job with it. Now they’ve got some time off and then they’ll be back and ready to hit camp. It looks like the team’s in good shape now, it’s important that they even ramp it up a little bit more for the long haul of the season.”
Kansas City Chiefs OL Trey Smith says he wants other teams to ‘know what they missed out on’ |247sports
Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Trey Smith was once regarded as a surefire first-round pick in the NFL Draft. So it came as a bit of a shock that he slipped all the way to the sixth round in 2021, with the Chiefs ultimately ending the former Tennessee star’s slide. Now, he is widely regarded as one of the top young interior offensive linemen in the league — and a bonafide steal from the 2021 NFL Draft.
“Sometimes that’s definitely a thought that goes in my head,” Smith said. “I talked to you, Ramon, I think it was the Orange & White Game. You were telling me, play with a chip on your shoulder. Let them feel you every time. Those teams that came down to it, there’s no hate because at the end of the day it’s business. But at the end of the day, I know who I am as a player and I want them to know what they missed out on.”
