Andy Reid Explains What Chiefs Offense Will Look Like Without Tyreek Hill

The Chiefs aren’t too worried.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid doesn’t plan to make major changes to his offensive system despite losing superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs head coach explained what it’s going to look like without their star receiver.

“I don’t think it’ll be significantly different,” Reid said of his offense Monday, according to The Athletic’s Nate Taylor.

“It will be similar to the games that Tyreek couldn’t play in. We will have people try to fill in those spots, we won’t force anything, we will play to the players’ strengths, we will see what the new guys can do,” he added, according to WIBW’s Jake Lebahn.

The Chiefs traded Hill to the Miami Dolphins this offseason.  Reid also said Monday that Kansas City’s front office “kept it wide open” with tight end Travis Kelce and quarterback Patrick Mahomes about the trade.

“In this day and age, unfortunately, you can’t pay everybody,” Reid said. “That’s just the way it goes. Along the way you’re going to lose a guy or two.”

The Chiefs rebuilt their receiving corps this year, adding free agents JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to the mix to start alongside Mecole Hardman.

“We know what Mecole can do, and we have a lot of confidence in what he can do,” Reid said. “Mecole has the speed like a Tyreek had. A different player, but he gives you a nice skill set.”

Reid is also excited about Valdes-Scantling’s addition.

“He’s a big target, run the slant game, deep throws. … Gives us some flexibility there,” he said, according to Fox4 News’ Harold R. Kuntz.

Hill caught a career-high 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns in 2021. That’s a lot of production the Chiefs are going to lose.
