Odell Beckham Jr. is a free agent for the first time in his career -- and the Kansas City Chiefs are one of the three teams he's reportedly considering. Kansas City is a contending team Beckham is interested in joining, especially given their offensive struggles through nine games.
Patrick Mahomes could use more weapons in the passing game, but he isn't knocking on Beckham's door at this moment. Of course, the Chiefs haven't asked him yet either.
"No they haven't reached out to me or anything like that to do anything like that," Mahomes said Wednesday. "Obviously, I know that he's a talented player and everything like that, but all you can do is focus on the day at hand especially this season, so for me it's just focusing on the best practice I can have right now and let that all handle itself."
Mahomes has struggled throwing the football though most of this season, averaging a career-low 7.0 yards per attempt (has never had a season below 8.0) and 10.7 yards per completion (has never been below 12.2). The Chiefs quarterback has 10 interceptions, which is third in the NFL behind Sam Darnold and Joe Burrow. (Mahomes has never thrown more than 12 interceptions in a season.)
Kansas City hasn't received much production from the No. 2 wide receiver spot, as Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle, and Mecole Hardman have combined for 780 yards and 11.3 yards per catch -- this with five touchdown grabs. Certainly, the Chiefs can use an upgrade as they continue to turn their season around.
Mahomes will allow the higher-ups to do their job in getting Beckham to Kansas City. The Chiefs organization and their success over the past few years speaks for itself.
"Yeah I mean obviously (Beckham's) a really good football player who's done a lot of great things in this league. But I'll leave that stuff up to (Brett) Veach," Mahomes said. "I mean he does a great job of bringing great players in, he's always looking around and trying to see what he can do to make the team better, so I'll let him handle that and I'll focus on this opponent this week and go out there and try to play with whoever is on that field."
