Mahomes putting on a show with a rookie receiver
Reigning MVP and improvisational wizard Patrick Mahomes is getting a speedy new target acclimated to his magical ways. The Chiefs star rolled to his right and found rookie Mecole Hardman in practice, much to the delight of assembled fans.
Hardman, the team’s second-round pick out of Georgia, zipped under the Mahomes throw just short of the goal line.
Patriots receiver Maurice Harris has a great coach
New England Patriots receiver Maurice Harris is turning heads in camp, and he is tossing some credit to his wife. According to a story in The Athletic, Kayla Harris — who comes from a football family — has been critical in helping her husband get ahead of the game.
Her brother, Richard Rodgers, is a tight end with the Eagles. And her father is the Panthers’ secondary coach.
After catching on as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins in 2016, Harris signed a 1-year deal with New England this offseason looking to win a job.
Antonio Brown has missed practice this week
The Raiders want to see Brown in their offense, but there has been a problem. Brown has been out of practice, perhaps due to blistered feet according to Lindsay Jones of The Athletic.
There’s not much the Raiders can do, but it’s not an ideal situation with their big offseason addition.
No Antonio Brown at practice the two days I’ve been in Napa. “I think we’re all disappointed,” Jon Gruden said. “We want to get the party started.”— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) August 2, 2019
To expand here on AB, he posted a pic on his instagram story a couple of days ago of his blistered feet. There was hope he'd be back on the field, at least for limited work, after Raiders off-day on Weds, but it hasn't happened.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) August 2, 2019
