AFC West Q&A: Who will be the division MVP?

Philip Rivers could be poised for another career year, but it's a division filled with dangerous pass-rushers, including one Von Miller.

The Chiefs have signed all of their six draft picks after agreeing to contract terms with third-round nose tackle Derrick Nnadi of Florida State.

The Chiefs tried to speed the development of new starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes during offseason practice by showing him a variety of defensive looks. “One of the things we did was we wanted to come in and make sure we challenged him,'' coach Andy Reid said. “I thought he handled that very well. One of the big things for a young kid is (handling) the blitz game. We put a big emphasis on that, tried to give him a lot of different looks there . . . I thought he handled that well, even better than I expected.''

Andy Reid on expectations for the Chiefs as they concluded their offseason practice: “I would tell you it's like a baby. You're trying to figure out what they're going to be when they grow older. You've got to kind of go through the process. We all have to pump the brakes for a minute and get through training camp . . . You're optimistic about it. There's some young talent that's unknown. We're all (eager) to see how that develops but let's let it develop. Let's see how it goes. But it's exciting.''

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he cancelled the final day of offseason practice because of the heat in Kansas City. The Chiefs are scheduled for the last of their 13 offseason practice sessions today. “We've had great work and a great turnout,'' Reid said. “I wanted to get (sprints, part of their conditioning program) knocked out when it was (relatively cool) . . . It was supposed to get close to 100 (degrees). I didn't want to put the guys out there in that kind of heat running around.''

The Chiefs have now called off their final offseason practice session.

The Chiefs are scheduled for the last of their 13 offseason practice sessions today. Then they'll break until training camp begins in late July at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. QB Patrick Mahomes on his plans until then: “You take that first week and just try to get your body right. You've got to make sure you go home and see the family and do all those things. But for me, I'm ready to keep going. I'll be working out and I'm sure I'll have a few throwing sessions with the receivers. I'm excited to keep rolling, pretty much.''

Patrick Mahomes had a (mostly) strong day as the Chiefs began their three-day mini-camp. Mahomes was 18-of-23 but threw an interception toward the end of practice on a play where the intended receiver, Travis Kelce, didn't seem ready for the ball. Mahomes was also 10-of-12 in 7-on-7 drills.

WR Sammy Watkins has played for Andy Reid for less than three months but said the Chiefs coach is already making him a better player. “He's helped me in this short amount of time with being a complete receiver, not just being (a receiver who) runs go-routes,'' Watkins said. “I've got to learn the whole route tree. The standard (Reid wants), he called me out in meetings. That's what you need as a player. I take full advantage of all of those things. I've never been in an offense like this, around a coach that feels like he's obsessed with the game and he makes you want to be obsessed with it, too, to know more about the offense.'' Watkins, the Chiefs' major free-agent acquisition, is playing all of the various positions. “This offense is the broadest offense I've ever been in, he said. “I just feel like you get more opportunities on linebackers, safeties. It's definitely easier working against a linebacker or getting open on safeties.''
