ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs entered training camp with 13 wide receivers after not addressing the position through in the draft.
While Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery remain the starters, the Chiefs are looking to get contributions from A.J. Jenkins and Kyle Williams.
“I like what I see,” coach Andy Reid said. “A.J.’s been doing a consistent job, which is good. He’s catching the ball well. I like what I’ve seen from both of them.”
Reid’s initial assessment offers optimism the Chiefs will improve a passing offense that finished last season without a 700-yard wide receiver and ranked 24th in the league (208.8 yards per game).
