What have been the biggest takeaways from Chiefs OTAs so far?


OTAs are always an exciting time for NFL fans -- often they're the first time that new veterans and rookies get on the field with the team, and the camp marks the countdown to official Training Camp in late July. While there's typically not a whole lot of real substance to take from the team running around in shorts and t-shirts, that doesn't mean there can't be a few nuggets of information to learn from late-May practices. Speaking to 610's Fescoe In The Morning, Chiefs Insider Pete Sweeney gave his take on what he's seen so far.

"I feel like everyone's in shorts at this point, so to me I felt like everyone looked good," he said. "Generally speaking, in these types of camps, the offense looks better than the defense because it's a no-fear camp. The offense can kind of just have its way. Let's say, for example, you get a pass to someone and it's three yards out, like Travis Kelce, he's not getting thumped at the goal line with no pads on. He's just going to walk into the end zone. So a lot of catches, a lot of touchdowns. I felt like, for my first look at the new pass-catching core, I thought they had pretty good timing for being a completely new group ... I didn't expect to walk in there and say to myself, 'wow, the receiver that it looks like he has the best rhythm with is Marquez Valdes-Scantling.' But I did walk away feeling that way."
