An elite inner circle has already seen the NFL’s schedule ahead of its reveal. Kansas City Chiefs GM Brett Veach revealed on the Rich Eisen Show that a few people within his department have already seen the team’s schedule. That group includes Veach, Andy Reid and . . . Eric Stonestreet?
Yes, Stonestreet, the actor and Chiefs superfan, is part of the inner circle who has already seen the schedule according to Veach. Technically, he’s family, having played Chiefs HC Andy Reid’s brother Randy Reid at training camp in 2019.
“What you can do at least to protect me a little bit here so I don’t get in trouble, any information you need Chiefs related just give Eric (Stonestreet) a text,” Veach told Eisen. “And that way, we’ll keep it clean.”
Apparently, Stonestreet believes there’s a fourth person who has already seen the schedule in the building that Veach forgot to mention. That would be none other than Chiefs CEO and Chairman, Clark Hunt.
It’s 4 people, Brett. You forgot Clark Hunt. https://t.co/Q5DKT8d4Yq

That certainly would make some sense that the owner of the team would be privy to the schedule early. I’m a bit surprised that Patrick Mahomes hasn’t managed to get a glimpse at the schedule yet. We’ll all know soon enough the complete schedule with the clock ticking down to the full reveal, but maybe Stonestreet will be so kind as to tease some of his insider knowledge this afternoon.
