Chiefs head coach Andy Reid appears to be fond of Lamar Jackson’s skills as a quarterback, judging by what he said during a press conference on Wednesday.
Reid spoke to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium, and he made it pretty clear that he’d be more interested in Jackson as a quarterback, rather than a receiver.
Former Colts general manager Bill Polian commented that he preferred Jackson as a receiver, but Reid doesn’t appear to agree with him. The Chiefs coach certainly feels like he’d take Jackson as a quarterback prospect, and then see what type of ball skills he possesses in the future.
Was Reid throwing shade at Polian? It’s certainly possible.
