Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was an assistant coach with the Packers for seven seasons under Mike Holmgren when Brett Favre played quarterback in Green Bay. If former Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali‘s thoughts on new Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes prove to be valid Boomer Esiason Jersey , Reid might have a Favre reincarnation at his disposal in Kansas City. In an interview with the NFL Network on Wednesday, Hali said he sees similarities between Mahomes and the Hall of Fame quarterback. “You’re going to get a complete player,” Hali said of Mahomes. “I mean, he’s a smart player. He can throw the ball. Athletically, he’s gifted. You don’t have to coach it. “In practice I’d watch him just look guys off. I mean, Eric Berry, you look him off and complete the ball. He did it to Marcus Peters a lot. So Roger Staubach Jersey , people don’t know what’s coming. I don’t want to hype him, but I compare him to Brett Favre. He runs around the field and he throws the ball and he’s just having fun.” Hali was able to watch Mahomes in practice throughout the season and came away bullish on his potential. The trade of Alex Smith to Washington over the offseason cleared the decks for Mahomes to assume the starting job in Kansas City. However, Mahomes is still a completely unproven commodity at the NFL level. He started the final game of last season as Smith was rested ahead of the playoffs. Mahomes completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards with a touchdown and two interception. Even in the limited sample size, Mahomes’ talent showed itself in a few occasions during his only regular season action of his rookie campaign. Reid clearly felt excited about Mahomes’ potential as well in trading up in the 2017 NFL Draft to select him 10th overall. While an expectation of becoming Favre version 2.0 is certainly unfair at this stage, Mahomes will have the chance to succeed under Reid in Kansas City. Rick Spielman came to this year's annual NFL scouting combine with a quarterback quandary. He has two first-round draft picks trying to recover from injuries and a third-stringer, who led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship game. Now, instead of reaping the benefits of his smart moves and abundant riches Sean Mannion Jersey , Spielman faces one of the most challenging decisions a general manager can with all three set to become free agents in less than two weeks. "I believe in Case Keenum," Spielman said Wednesday, the first full day of activity in Indianapolis. "He did a phenomenal job and he has a knack for making big plays. We're very excited about what he was able to accomplish." The more telling question might be how eager others around the league to sign Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford? Spielman is running short on time as the carousel spins. He says he won't make any decisions until he returns to Minneapolis next week. Meanwhile, the offseason has started with a bang. Alex Smith was traded from Kansas City to Washington, essentially assuring Kirk Cousins becomes a free agent. Blake Bortles and Jimmy Garoppolo each signed contract extensions with Garoppolo getting a reported five-year, $137.5 million deal. Garoppolo won his first five starts in San Francisco after a midseason trade from New England and is now 7-0 as a starter. The new deals have Green Bay contemplating a new deal for Aaron Rodgers. New general manager Brian Gutekunst acknowledged "it's not going to be inexpensive." But this could be just the start to a wild and wooly offseason. The free agent market opens March 14 and Keenum Kony Ealy Jersey , Bridgewater and Bradford could all be attractive options for quarterback-needy teams. Keenum seemed to find a home last year after spending two-plus seasons in Houston and two-plus seasons with the Rams. Bridgewater was considered the Vikings' next big star until he tore the ACL and dislocated his knee in August 2016. He made it back briefly late last season and now the Vikings await a ruling that could force Bridgewater to stick around one more season before hitting free agency. Spielman doesn't sound hopeful about Minnesota's chances. "I don't personally believe, with what I know today, that his contract will toll," he said. One big advantage the Vikings have: They know Bridgewater's prognosis and exactly where he stands in the rehab process. Bradford, the 2010 NFL offensive rookie of the year, missed all but two games last season with a knee injury and there are long-term questions about the stability of his left knee. The 30-year-old has a long history of injuries but a needy team might be willing to take a calculated risk on the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner and top pick in the 2010 draft. Other prominent names could be on the move, too. Cousins and Mike Glennon are expected to be available after the Bears announced Wednesday they would release Glennon Pat McAfee Jersey , and 39-year-old Drew Brees will be a free agent if he doesn't re-sign with the Saints in the next two weeks. The conventional wisdom suggests Brees will remain in New Orleans. Then there's the trade market. Coach Sean McDermott said Buffalo does not intend to cut Tyrod Taylor but could trade him. And if the New York Giants decide to rebuild with a young quarterback, 37-year-old Eli Manning could hear his name bandied about. One team that seemed to take itself out of the discussion is reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia. Executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman appears to be in no hurry to change anything with starter Carson Wentz recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee, especially after backup Nick Foles led the Eagles to their first NFL title since 1960. "We're trying to keep as many good players as we can," Roseman said. "That room is exactly what we want it to be. We have a franchise quarterback, a Super Bowl MVP and we have a young quarterback (Nate Sudfeld) who we like." Jalen Brunson Jersey ,
