Patrick Mahomes Want to talk to the Fans Before Training Camp: Look….
Ladies and gentleman, football is in the air.
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will report for training camp on Friday.
It’ll mark the official beginning of the AFC West franchise’s preparations for the 2022 season.
Mahomes is ready to get after it.
“Report day tomorrow! #ChiefsKingdom Lets get it!!” he said on Twitter.
Mahomes and the Chiefs have some work to do. The good news is there’s no shortage of motivation.
Mahomes still has a bitter taste in his mouth after falling to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship. Sure, the Bengals were a team of destiny, so to speak. But on paper the Chiefs were the better team.
The 2022 season is when we find out if the Chiefs are a dynasty or not. They’ve been to three straight AFC Championships and two Super Bowls in the past three years, one of which they won.
This will be the year that potentially defines Mahomes’ career and the Chiefs as an organization.
Can they live up to the challenge?
Mahomes and his teammates will report for training camp on Friday.
This is when the true evaluation of player performance begins, a stark contrast to the less-intense organized team activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamp sessions that took place this spring.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid were scheduled to meet with media on Friday as select players begin reporting to St. Joe.
“(OTAs) is one step,” Reid said recently as he looked forward to the full-contact nature of training camp. “The next step is you get banged around a little and your body is tired — how are you going to fight through it, mentally and physically?
“The pace at training camp is a lot more vigorous … because of the contact.”
