3. The battle of the return man.

The Chiefs find themselves in a sticky situation when it comes to who will be the main returner for the team. Currently they have speedster De’Anthony Thomas who despite the small frame has the ability to take the ball to the house every time he goes back for a return.

However, even with that he had an unexplained absence last year after he suffered a concussion and went through the protocol. Even though he was cleared after that he still remained sidelined before is was placed on IR in December of last year.

That brings us to the very interesting prospect in Tyreek Hill. Hill was met with a lot of controversy when he was selected by the team, but we will not address all that. What Hill has done over the past few weeks and rookie mini-camp is be impressive with the coaches. Bring compared to special teams coordinator Dave Toub’s former All-Pro Devin Hester, Hill has speed the ability to break ankles when defenders try to tackle him.

One thing Hill has also been doing better than Thomas in is his ability to catch the ball. Thomas has been working on that quite a bit in the off season and it does show, but Hill who is a rookie is already doing just that. If Hill can continue to develop and impress the coaches as he already has, there is going to be quite an interesting battle to watch at camp and throughout the preseason.

The first game of the preseason is sure to be exciting for the team and Chiefs fans everywhere so, LETS GO CHIEFS!
