Chiefs’ Thomas Makes Transition to WR


Perhaps in a nod to his limitations as a running back, the Kansas City Chiefs made a subtle shift with De’Anthony Thomas when offseason practice started last week.Thomas now works in practice with the wide receivers and goes to their positional meetings. He worked with the running backs last season as a rookie.Opponents will likely see more of De’Anthony Thomas catching the ball as a receiver for the Chiefs in 2015 than they did last season. Thomas can still line up in a variety of places, including running back. But the move means the Chiefs intend to utilize Thomas more as a receiver and less as a runner. He played some of both last season.”It makes me more valuable to the offense,” Thomas said. “It lets defenses look for me, see where I’m at on the field. It just gives them a different look. I believe it’s a great thing.”
