KC Chiefs offense is intriguing as training camp nears

New, comments

As July moves into it's first weekend, training camp is looming for 32 NFL teams.

USA TODAY Sports

With July 4th over and summer in full swing, the NFL season is incredibly very close to starting anew.

For the Kansas City Chiefs, this is good news. I know I speak for the entire fan base when I say the memory of 2012, Romeo Crennel's blank stare, and Brian Daboll's general idea about offense can't be buried quickly enough.

Now, the Chiefs are only a few short weeks away at Missouri Western State University from getting on the field for the start of training camp. Rookies will be reporting on July 22 and the veterans showing up on the 26th. (See the full schedule here.)

This should be a very interesting camp with a new head coach in Andy Reid, looking to redeem himself after two disappointing and lackluster seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Of course, add in a new quarterback with Alex Smith who has plenty to prove, and it's a recipe for intrigue.

The subject which excites me the most is the new offensive scheme.

How will the Chiefs coaching staff use Jamaal Charles and Dexter McCluster out of the backfield?

Will Jon Baldwin become the threat we all believe he has the potential to be?

How often will Donnie Avery have a chance to split the safeties?

So what are you most excited about for camp? Maybe a position battle catches your fancy or the specific development of one player. Tell us below in the comments.
