Chiefs | Frankie Hammond Jr. sees first-team reps
Kansas City Chiefs WR Frankie Hammond Jr. took first-team repetitions Tuesday, Aug. 11, and impressed offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. "I think you're beginning to see the gains and strides from his hard work out here on the field," Pederson said. "He's put himself in a really good position to play quite a bit for us on offense. He's a great special teams contributor." Hammond added 5 pounds in the offseason. "The weight gain helps him," Pederson said. "He just becomes stronger, a little more physical on the edge, and we ask our guys to block."
Chiefs | Alex Smith impressed with Jeremy Maclin
Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has impressed QB Alex Smith in practices this summer. "I feel like that's the ultimate tool. For coach (Andy) Reid, he just loves drawing up stuff and creating stuff, so Jeremy will be all over the field," Smith said. "He'll be inside, he'll be outside, deep, short, running the ball, throwing the ball. I mean Jeremy is a guy that can do so much." Head coach Andy Reid's schemes and offensive language remain largely the same from the time he and Maclin worked together with the Philadelphia Phillies, so Maclin doesn't need a ton of time to acclimate to his new offense.
