Chiefs GM Makes Wild Statement About Kadarius Toney

Kansas City still believes in the 25-year-old wide receiver, who didn’t play a single down in the postseason.

The Kansas City Chiefs had a ton of high expectations coming into the 2023 season for young wide receiver Kadarius Toney after the flashes he showed in 2022.

When the Chiefs acquired the former first-round pick from the New York Giants for a couple of draft picks, it seemed like a steal based on his skill set within Kansas City’s offense.

However, Toney took a major step back in 2023 as he had a couple of untimely drops and was inactive for the last three games of the regular season and the entire postseason run.

With the former Florida Gator wideout seemingly falling out of favor, there was a belief that the Chiefs could move on from Toney this offseason. But that doesn’t seem to be the case as head coach Andy Reid threw his support behind Toney and can’t wait to see him back on the field.

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach echoed the same sentiments as Reid on Friday when speaking with the media.

“Kadarius Toney is probably our most talented wide receiver, ” Veach said (h/t Charles Goldman of AtoZSports). Veach also added that it’s just a matter of Toney staying healthy and they never stopped believing in him.

To see the Chiefs giving Toney a vote of confidence is a great sign heading into this season and for the foreseeable future. When you look at the Chiefs’ wide receiver room as a whole, Toney is their most talented wide receiver, outside of Hollywood Brown.

Last season, Toney had 27 receptions (38 targets) for 169 yards and a touchdown. Heading into this season, the 25-year-old receiver has a chance to drastically improve those numbers as the team’s No. 3 wideout behind Brown and Rashee Rice.

If the Chiefs want to win three straight titles this coming season, they are going to need Toney to live up to his first-round billing.
