Andy Reid: Patrick Mahomes Will 'Take Some Time'

Apr 28, 2017 8:32 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs traded up to the 10th pick to take Patrick Mahomes, but Andy Reid is already tempering expectations for the rookie quarterback.

Reid isn't expecting Mahomes to be able to handle the offense right away, which leaves Alex Smith as the team's starter.

"I don’t worry about Alex on this," Reid said. "Alex knows we trust him. Alex is the starting quarterback. Nothing is going to change there. The kid is going to take some time. He understands that. But there's gonna be a day Alex isn't playing anymore and we'll need someone to step in and play."

Andy Reid Vows To Get Tyreek Hill More Involved In Offense

Mar 31, 2017 8:21 AM

Andy Reid wants the Kansas City Chiefs to get Tyreek Hill more involved on offense after the rookie scored 12 touchdowns on just 138 touches as a rookie.

Reid plans to give Hill more looks at running back and wide receiver after he was on the field for less than half of the offensive plays in 2016.

"Growing Tyreek in the offense will be important," Reid said.

Hill had 61 catches, 24 carries, 39 punt returns and 14 kickoff returns last season.

"He was a running back that they kind of moved around a little bit," Reid said. "His routes when he first came were kind of raw. They weren't as disciplined as they need to be in this offense. So much of this offense is timing and being in a certain spot and knowing defenses, knowing secondaries and all that, how you're going to make adjustments. That was all new. He is a smart kid. He picked it up so fast, and he was able to play at our level."
