It’s bad news for the rest of the NFL

Reid and Mahomes are eyeing a third successive Super Bowl...

How can the Kansas City Chiefs get even better? Perhaps adding a proven 1,000-yard receiver to the mix.

The Chiefs won Super Bowl LVIII last month, rounding into form after a challenging regular season that saw quarterback Patrick Mahomes — surprisingly — marshal a middle-of-the-pack offense. But Kansas City, like all dynastic organizations, was not content to rest on its laurels despite winning a second consecutive Super Bowl. General manager Brett Veach made his move early in free agency this month — and as a result, head coach Andy Reid is even more excited about the possibilities awaiting Mahomes and company this September.

Reid pleased with “Hollywood” star’s arrival

At the NFL owners’ meetings in Orlando this week, Reid has spoken about the arrival of receiver Marquise Brown — better known as “Hollywood” Brown. The former Baltimore Raven and Arizona Cardinal agreed to a one-year deal worth $6.5 million guaranteed, and Reid thinks he is primed to succeed in the Chiefs’ system.

“I think Marquise gives you that speed element on the outside, or inside, for that matter,” Reid said Monday. “He’s played all the different spots. I think he’s a smart kid. He’ll complement with Rashee (Rice) and Trav (Travis Kelce) well.”

Brown had a challenging 2023 season in Arizona, registering a career-low 574 receiving yards as the Cardinals — without franchise quarterback Kyler Murray for much of the season — finished with a 4-13 record. But the former first-round pick posted a 1,000-yard season in 2021 — when he played a career-high 16 games — and Reid is focused on keeping him locked in and on the field.

“I think his main thing is just staying healthy. It’s been an issue up to this point,” Reid said. “He looks like he’s in great shape. He’s in a good frame of mind.”

Brown will get a chance to prove that he is a #1 receiver in the NFL — in perhaps the best place possible, with the best quarterback in the league throwing passes his way. Combined with Rice and the ageless Kelce, this is a core for Chiefs fans to dream as Kansas City seeks to become the first team ever to win three Super Bowls in as many years.
