KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As he chatted with coach Andy Reid the other day at the Chiefs’ training complex, general manager Brett Veach took notice of a thick stack of index cards that Reid called … “my new Pat plays.”

Veach shared that with a smile on Thursday, and why not? The diabolical prospects of what Reid is concocting for NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes in his second year as a starter should accelerate pulse rates for Chiefs fans and send shudders around the NFL.

But that’s hardly the only intriguing and energizing proposition the Chiefs are engaged in amid their offseason training program and preparation for the NFL draft next week.
