The Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill this offseason and chose not to re-sign Tyrann Mathieu, leaving the roster empty. But general manager Brett Veach said that doesn’t mean the team is in rebuild mode.
“As long as we have Patrick Mahomes, we’re going to be in championship mode every year,” Veitch said. “Even if it means you might make some necessary changes, trade good players… It has to be smart and flexible. The two necessary materials are draft resources and cap space.”
“Trading a good player doesn’t mean we’re in rebuild mode, it just means we’ve gained new resources and will continue to be aggressive.”
In addition to Hill and Matthew, starting cornerback Charvarius Ward did not stay on the team. reinforcement. The Chiefs currently hold 12 draft picks, two in each of the first four rounds.
