Mahomes throws three more INTs at Chiefs practice

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes continued to show inconsistency in Wednesday's practice, tossing a trio of interceptions to bring his total to seven through six sessions at training camp.Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, one of Mahomes' interceptions on Wednesday came in the end zone, after he had an open lane to score with his feet but opted to throw late instead."That's the first thing I said when I came to the sideline: I could have run it," Mahomes told reporters. "[The coaches] said, 'Then just do it. Don't train bad habits.' ... That was the play that needed to be made on that one."Another interception was the result of the young quarterback calling the wrong play in the huddle."Being able to get in and out of the huddle, calling the right plays and then not making a bad play worse is something I've got to keep getting better at," Mahomes said. "I have to eliminate those mistakes. It's something that can be described as a learning process."Hopefully I make those mistakes now and don't make them in the game."Known for his strong arm and aggressive approach, Mahomes has made plenty of big plays in camp as well, including a long touchdown to Tyreek Hill on Wednesday. But there have been growing pains as he settles into the starting job that was vacated with the trade of careful-but-steady veteran Alex Smith."He had a few hiccups today," offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy told reporters of Mahomes. "But that's a part of the process. When you're young you need those hiccups because they become valuable lessons.

Ex-Chiefs LB Hali: 'I think the time has come' to retire

Three months after the Kansas City Chiefs released him, linebacker Tamba Hali said Wednesday he plans to retire from the NFL after 12 seasons."I won't lie, I mean, at times I want to play, at times I don't want to play," Hali said on SirusXM NFL radio. "...But I don't want to lie to myself. I think the time has come."...I gave it my best, my all, and that's what came back, and I have to accept it that way."Hali, 34, missed 11 games last season while battling a knee injury, after entering the year with four contests missed in his first 11 campaigns. He finished the 2017 season with just 99 defensive snaps played and no sacks, and Kansas City released him in March to save $7.7 million against the cap.Since the Chiefs took him in the first round in 2006, Hali has collected 89.5 sacks, putting him in a tie for 45th on the all-time list (since sacks became an official statistic in 1983) and one or two seasons away from possibly reaching 100. But he indicated his long-term health is a bigger priority than reaching milestones."I have four kids. I want to be able to run around with them, even challenge them in some sports they would play," he said. "I would love to get to 100 sacks, but the reality is the game I have to play is going to be longer than 12, 13, 14, 15 years, hopefully."
