The Kansas City Chiefs made some notable off-season additions while losing their biggest playmaker on offense, wide receiver Tyreek Hill. They sent Hill to the Miami Dolphins in a blockbuster trade that shocked many.


Hill was one of Patrick Mahomes' most reliable targets in his time at Kansas City.

NFL analyst Nate Tice spoke about the new-look offense on the Mina Kimes Show. Tice said Kansas City could become more of a traditional attack, mixing both the running and passing game.

"So I think this is going to become more of a traditionally based attack. And what I mean by that is running the ball play actions off of it. And I think it's going to become more of an at you run game. It's a fun mixing of styles. They, like you said, bulked up in the receiver room."

Tice added that he thinks Kansas City will lean heavily towards the run game this season.

"And then you got this guy more to create some yards after the catch on the shorter intermediate stuff as well and then you got Travis Kelce. And so I think they just have leaned into run, have Travis Kelce be our x receiver and then we'll have MVS and Juju be our y tight end basically. They kind of switched around how they attack. "

While the AFC West champs lost their best playmaker in Hill, they've added a few receivers in the off-season to fill in for him.

They signed receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling in free agency and drafted Skyy Moore in the second round.

They also added running back Ronald Jones while re-signing Jerick McKinnon.

This team is among the top favorites to reach the Super Bowl this upcoming season. With these additions, on paper, Kansas City should once again be a legitimate threat to hoist the Lombardi trophy.
