ST. JOSEPH - The Chiefs kicked off training camp, Thursday afternoon in St. Joseph. It was the first chance fans got to see the beginning stages of the 2018 Chiefs.
All eyes on Patrick Mahomes and the new look offense. Not much has changed, aside from the quarterback position. One of the changes was the addition of Sammy Watkins. The 2014 fourth overall pick out of Clemson adds more speed and play-making ability to an already potent offense.
Thursday, Mahomes and Watkins gave fans a preview into what this offense can do. A 50-yard touchdown pass, deep up-the-middle, was the highlight of the day. It was certainly difficult for the defense, having to cover Watkins, All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce, All-Pro Tyreek Hill and the 2017 NFL rushing leader Kareem Hunt.
Those four, along with an emerging Chris Conley, established running backs Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, and De'Anthony Thomas, makes the Kansas City offense a force to be reckoned with in 2018.
Training camp continues Friday morning at 8:15.
