What kind of impact has Kadarius Toney had on Chiefs offense so far?


It's been so far, so good for Kadarius Toney in Kansas City. Since the Chiefs traded for the former Giants receiver in October, Toney's been a productive player in their offense, catching six balls (on seven targets) for 69 yards and touchdown while averaging over 11 yards per reception. Andy Reid's offense is notoriously difficult to dive into mid-season, so what's been the difference for Toney? 610's Chiefs Insider Pete Sweeney called into Fescoe In The Morning on Tuesday to give his take.

"We always talk about these players that are the quote-unquote Bret Veach special," he said. "I think the difference of this one is that it happened so recently. This was a first-round prospect last year, and what we know is that this organization was really interested in Toney and what he brings to the table. That interest didn't change based upon whatever happened in New York. And because it was so recent and because he was a prospect last year, you're seeing the production, I think ... We're getting a glimpse in these first two games of exactly what he can do, so long as he feels he's in a good situation. I think it affects the short-term and the long-term."
