The Kansas City Chiefs first preseason game is a mere few days away.
For many in Chiefs Kingdom, the biggest question this offseason was, how would the team fix the offense?
Well, the organization heard the Kingdom and released the non-producing Dwayne Bowe and signed former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, instantly boosting the weaponry.
They also helped an abysmal offensive line with the signing of Paul Fanaika and the trade for Ben Grubbs. The loss of center Rodney Hudson did hurt, but the addition of those two along with draft pick Mitch Morse should ease the pain. Perhaps the most interesting move the Chiefs made this offseason was to move speedy De’Anthony Thomas to wide receiver.
Thomas has the ability to be a threat from every angle of the field. Whether he lines up in the slot, the outside, or behind star running back Jamaal Charles, he will be explosive.
The first preseason game, while not a full example of what the new offense will look like, could be an indication of what’s to come.
