It’s April and Chargers WR Keenan Allen is already talking trash about the Chiefs

The calendar has not even turned to May yet (!), and Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is already talking trash on the Kansas City Chiefs.

On Monday at offseason workouts, Allen was asked about the new-look defense.

“Since you asked, we brought it up today in the locker room,” Allen said, according to the Orange County Register. “We just looked at their DB (defensive back) group, and I’ll just leave it at that. We’ve seen it.”

The Chiefs’ defensive back group has gone through several changes this offseason—the Chiefs saw Steve Nelson leave for the Pittsburgh Steelers in free agency and also released longtime safety Eric Berry, who has yet to find a team.

The Chiefs added Tyrann Mathieu, Bashaud Breeland and Keith Reaser and drafted safety Juan Thornhill and cornerback Rashad Fenton this past weekend to join Kendall Fuller, Charvarius Ward and Daniel Sorensen, among others. Allen and the Chargers apparently have little respect for those moves.

As a reminder, this is not the first time Allen has trash talked the Chiefs. Back in December of 2016, Allen took to Twitter to call then-Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters a bum.

In eight career regular-season games against the Chiefs, the 27-year-old Allen has averaged 69.6 yards per game and one total touchdown.

The Chiefs, who are 9-1 in their last 10 games against the Chargers, play Los Angeles on November 18, more than 200 days away.
