Mahomes knows risk, feels safe in return to Chiefs' facility
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was on every call involving the NFL Players Association and took a significant role in putting in place the return-to-play protocols for training camp. The Super Bowl MVP took over the player representative role on the Chiefs from longtime punter Dustin Colquitt, who was let go in the offseason. Chiefs offensive guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was the first player to voluntarily opt out Friday night. I think it surprises anyone, Mahomes said, but at the same time you respect his decision. We think we're going to put the players in a position where they're safe," he said.
