Jeremy Maclin is excited about the Kansas City Chiefs offense


The Kansas City Chiefs have a busy offseason, and signing receiver Jeremy Maclin was the centerpiece of it. General manager John Dorsey was able to lure Maclin away from the Philadelphia Eagles, bringing the Missouri native home on a five-year, $55 million contract.

On Monday, Maclin spoke with the Kansas City media at Arrowhead Stadium and discussed various topics, including his thoughts on the offensive group.

"“It’s talented. It’s extremely talented. Obviously starting with Alex (Smith), Jamaal (Charles), you’ve got Travis (Kelce), who I think is one of the bright tight ends in this league, up and coming. I’m excited to work with him. Obviously, Albert who showed flashes last year. He’s a guy who is going to come along and help us win. I’m just excited about having an opportunity to help some of the younger guys and shed some of my knowledge of the league and what I’ve experienced. Obviously, having (Jason) Avant here is something I really, really enjoy. I spent five years with him. If we can get it all together and get it on the right page, I think we will be pretty darn good.”"

Without question, this is the most talent the Chiefs have enjoyed on offense since the days of Trent Green, Tony Gonzalez, Priest Holmes and a line that featured two Hall of Famers in Willie Roaf and Will Shields.

Having Maclin on the outside will provide the threat Kansas City has been missing for the better part of the franchise’s history, while De’Anthony Thomas and Travis Kelce can work the seams and explore underneath. Then, there is some guy named Jamaal Charles. I’ve heard he is pretty good.
