Playing with an elite quarterback can give wide receivers numerous things. One of them is having a big year to get paid later on, and the other is to play for the chance to win a Super Bowl.
Being on a team with Patrick Mahomes can make those things possible.
NFL Network reporter James Palmer said Monday on “Good Morning Football” that some free agents are making their calls to the Chiefs quarterback. Palmer says that wideouts have been “calling him this entire offseason” asking if they can come to play with him on the Chiefs.
“It doesn’t mean they’re done looking. It doesn’t mean also that other wide receivers, I’m told, are not blowing up Patrick Mahomes’s phone. To my understanding, guys have been calling him this entire offseason saying, ‘Can I come to Kansas City? Can I come and play with you guys?’
“That is a real thing that is happening. I’m not saying that they’re adding anybody else. Brett Veach is one of these general managers that will always be weighing every single option that is out there on the table. There are receivers that are interested but right now, the plan appears to be bringing back everybody that they were finishing the season with which isn’t a terrible thing to have but again, when everybody wants to come, maybe a discount could be there in play and could be interesting.”
