KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Clad in yet another of his seemingly limitless supply of Tommy Bahama shirts, Chiefs coach Andy Reid on Friday night suddenly materialized on a Zoom video call conducted from the makeshift war room in his basement as nimbly as if he’d been doing it this way forever.

Speaking before the Chiefs made their third pick in the NFL draft, he gushed over their first two choices, LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Mississippi State linebacker Willie Gay, but also raved about the technology enabling an evidently smooth process despite the bizarre scene provoked by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

“Within being smart and safe, we’d all like to be able to get back and get things back to normal,” he said. “But that might take a little bit. And if it does, we keep pounding it out the best we can and we’re always going to try to maximize that with a positive attitude.”
