Chiefs rookie WR Worthy showing off wheels

The Kansas City Chiefs made it a point of focus this offseason to add more speed, and reliability, to their WR room, and rookie Xavier Worthy is already turning heads at the teams rookie camp.

“People were dogging him for the first day,” Chiefs rookie QB Chris Oladokun said. “That’s just a welcome to the league. But Xavier is going to do really well in this offense. We’re all really excited about him. You saw what he can do in terms of spinning [defenders] at the top of routes and how explosive he is, stretching the field and his [yards-after-the catch] ability.”

Chiefs added Hollywood Brown and Worthy

“I feel like I can play receiver,” Worthy said. “I’ve run the whole route tree, [been] disciplined, smart. … I feel like I’m ready to compete and see what’s up in Kansas City. I’m coming with a mentality to work hard, earn my spot and earn my spot in the locker room.”

“The speed is one thing but I feel like he runs great routes,” rookie CB Kamal Hadden said. “He’s a guy that can get open and I feel like he’s a guy that’s going to make a lot of plays in the league and he’s going to do his thing here.”

“Having Worthy and Hollywood and Travis and Rashee I think is going to be really exciting,” Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said. “He’s a guy that I think can do a lot for us. There’s a premium in this league on speed and playmaking ability and he has that. So I think the vision for him is we have him for five years now and that’s a big deal for us as we try to keep this thing together and add pieces. Those playmakers are hard to come by and they’re expensive in the offseason.”
