Patrick Mahomes didn’t just play well in the Chiefs Week 17 win over the Broncos last year. He’s also one of the best players Chiefs GM Brett Veach HAS EVER SEEN!
“From the day he first stepped on the field at rookie minicamp, he’s “wowed” us...he’s one of the best players I’ve ever seen.”— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) March 1, 2018
- #Chiefs GM Brett Veach on Patrick Mahomes.
This is the quote that everyone is going to be sharing on social media. I wouldn’t be surprised if Veach wanted to tweak that statement slightly because he did also say that Mahomes has a long ways to go. It’s interesting though seeing perhaps a peak into the type of potential that the Chiefs think they have here. Veach has worked under Andy Reid for a long time and must believe he can get the best out of him.
This won’t slow down the Mahomes hype train. It was inevitably gonna be hitting full speed this offseason but his strong performance in Week 17 against the Broncos amped things up more. And then of course the Alex Smith trade — which, officially, Veach can’t talk about — turned all of our focus to Mahomes.
