Patrick while talking with the reporters of Pro Football Talks, opened up and gave some insights on Justyn Ross’s performances. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes told the reporters, “I know people saw the catch on Twitter, but it’s just the way he catches the football out of the air.

Recently, a video clip was uploaded on the Chief’s Twitter handle in which Justyn is seen catching the football with one hand while running. The video has been shared multiple times and the NFL fans can’t stop praising Justyn.

Reacting to it, Mahomes showered praises on his teammate and commented on how well he catches the ball. He further said, “You’ve seen those flashes of how talented he can be. And then you’ve seen times where he’s just barely off of what we wanted. And he learns from that, he doesn’t make that same mistake.”

It seems the Chiefs are satisfied with the signing of Justyn Ross. In the 2022 NFL draft, the Chiefs shocked everyone when they traded WR Tyreek Hill to Miami Dolphins. The questions were raised, as to which player will fill the void created by the decision. But, looking at Justyn’s performance in the practice sessions, it is clear he is the chosen WR for the Chiefs.
