Sammy Watkins was among a large group of players returning kickoffs at the start of Chiefs practice. The chances of Watkins, who has never returned a kickoff in an NFL game, returning even one in a game for the Chiefs are not good but it's interesting he's at least getting a look. It's not uncommon for the Chiefs to ask different players to shag some kicks in practice. They did that with Marcus Peters after he first arrived. The Chiefs were rewarded in this area when they had Knile Davis return kickoffs even though he had never done so in college. Davis eventually developed into a top kickoff returner.

The Chiefs had perfect attendance at Thursday's practice. All 90 players were present, including safety Eric Berry and linebacker Justin Houston, who haven't participated in OTAs in recent years. All but three players participated in practice at least on a limited basis. Center Mitch Morse, running back Spencer Ware and receiver De'Anthony Thomas are rehabbing after surgeries and did not participate.

The Chiefs had their finished their first week of offseason practice and Thursday's workout wasn't a good one for quarterback Patrick Mahomes II and the rest of the starting offense. Mahomes was 4-of-15 with an interception in full team drills and 7-of-12 with an interception in 7-on-7 drills. The interception in full team drill was on a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage and caught by linebacker Tanoh Kpassagnon. On the interceptions, coach Andy Reid said, “You want to test what you can get away with at these camps so you're going to have interceptions. That doesn't bother me. You repeat it and now that's a problem. But you want to test it and see what you can get away with. That's all part of the way this thing works.''

After signing one defensive lineman, Xavier Williams, as a free agent and drafting another, Derrick Nnadi, in the third round, the Chiefs decided veteran Rakeen Nunez-Roches was expendable. The veteran defensive lineman was released after three seasons in Kansas City. He started 16 games with 1,5 sacks.

The Chhiefs made several bottom-of-the-roster moves, the most significant being the release of backup RB Akeem Hunt with a failed physical designation. Hunt went on the injured reserve list late last season after injuring an ankle in a game against the Broncos. The Chiefs also claimed TE Alex Ellis off waivers from the Saints. He has three pass receptions in his career, all with the Jaguars in 2016.

LB Breeland Speaks had a solid day in his first practice at Chiefs rookie camp. Speaks, the Chiefs' top pick, was able to get some pressure on the quarterback, though the Chiefs were practicing without pads and the player charged with blocking him had never played against someone with his skills. Speaks also said he was comfortable with the playbook. "The first reaction had to be ‘I can do this,' " Speaks said. "I looked at a few defenses we installed for today and we pretty much went over those and I know those pretty much by heart already. I'm feeling pretty good about the playbook so far."
