On the field, the Kansas City Chiefs did get in some good work indoors today. That is especially true for the offense who looked much more efficient today. Both Albert Wilson and Rod Streater hauled in touchdown passes on offense, which highlights the position battle going on there.
Undoubtedly, the Chiefs would prefer that Albert Wilson is able to beat out (a healthy) Rod Streater. Wilson is an internally developed player who is extremely affordable and the team has contractual control over for the next couple of years. Streater, on the other hand, comes with a much larger cap hit that includes likely achieved performance bonuses.
It is good news that both players are performing well early on in camp. This needs to be a tough decision for the Chiefs, and for the right reason. If the team can cut a healthy Rod Streater because the young guys are simply showing up, that says a lot for the team’s progress and future in the passing game.
For what it is worth this early in camp, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star made special note of Albert Wilson and his confidence in the offense this year. Paylor is a good follow for his Training Camp observations, so that is a noteworthy take.
