Andy Reid: “Kadarius Toney is one of the most talented players on the team”

Put on the shelf at the end of the regular season, inactive during the playoffs, Kadarius Toney did not really participate in winning the Chiefs' last title.

But he is still in the squad. And Andy Reid isn't giving up on him.

During his press briefing on Tuesday, the Kansas City coach played cuddle therapy, with a little message.

“Kadarius is one of the most talented players we have on the team,” assured Reid. “He just has to be healthy, stay on the field, and there's reliability, taking responsibility, and all those things that matter. So I expect them to come back ready to tear it up. »

In short: talent is not enough. But the talent is there.

Kadarius Toney works with Patrick Mahomes

The good news is that Kadarius Toney seems to have gotten the message.

“It’s great that he came to work with Pat (Mahomes) and he works hard. Look, we like Kadarius. He just needs to be on the field. »

Author of 7 receptions in three games during the playoffs played in 2023, with a touchdown during the Super Bowl won against the Eagles, Toney finally seemed to be launched. He caught 27 balls for 169 yards and 1 touchdown in the first 13 games last season, before being benched in Week 15 and never coming out again.

The player selected in the first round by the Giants in 2021 is therefore once again in a position where he must prove himself. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

First mission: regain confidence in your hands. In 2023, Toney dropped 5 passes, the worst season of his career in the week.
