Despite recent controversy, many fans have viewed Josh Gordon’s signing as a good one. Given their recent form, the Chiefs need a reliable receiver in their squad. Their first victory over Cleveland Browns just wasn’t convincing enough, and losses to Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Chargers have put them in a tough spot.

While there have been detractors, there’s one man who is very much looking forward to playing alongside Gordon in the NFL. That man is the Chiefs’ quarterback superstar, Patrick Mahomes. After two letdowns, Mahomes aims to bounce back. Speaking to ESPN, Mahomes expressed his excitement to play alongside the former Super Bowl winner.

“Everywhere he’s been, he’s kind of dominated. He can make plays in one-on-one coverage. He’s a big receiver. Even if he’s covered, he’s not covered. You can kind of throw it up there and he can make plays.”

“I’m sure they’ll incorporate him with a couple roles in the offense as the season goes on, as we get him up to speed, and we’ll see where that takes us. He’ll have his role. He’s a great football player, but in this offense everybody gets a chance to make plays.”

While fans can’t wait to see the former Patriots and Seahawks star on the field, coach Andy Reid provides a disappointing update. Despite the excitement, Reid believes it’ll take a while for Josh Gordon to enter the line-up. For now, Mahomes and Reid will depend on the services of the #1 wide receiver, Tyreek Hill.

“It’s going to take a while. He’s probably not going to play this week. We’ll just see how it goes over the next week or two.”
