Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes seems to be very impressed with his newest teammate. On Wednesday, the former MVP raved about Josh Gordon and what he potentially brings to their offense.

"Everywhere he's been, he's kind of dominated,'' Mahomes said of Gordon, via ESPN. "He can make plays in one-on-one coverage."

Mahomes really appreciates how Gordon can make plays even when he's facing tight coverage. That means we could see Mahomes thread the needle when targeting the former All-Pro wide receiver.

"He's a big receiver," Patrick Mahomes explained. "Even if he's covered, he's not covered. You can kind of throw it up there and he can make plays."

Gordon will spend time on the Chiefs' practice squad before being promoted to the main roster. If he still has some gas left in the tank, he would give the Chiefs another wideout who can consistently beat one-on-one coverage.

Despite his physical gifts, Gordon may have to wait a few weeks before he sees the field. At least that's what Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told reporters on Wednesday.

"It’s gonna take awhile," Reid said. "It’s probably not gonna be this week. We'll just see how it goes over the next week or two."

Gordon could make his debut for the Chiefs next weekend against the Buffalo Bills. Of course, that's if everything goes according to plan in practice.
