Kansas City Chiefs Should Add WR Through NFL Draft, Not Free Agency
One of the most important positions the Kansas City Chiefs need to upgrade this offseason is wide receiver. Fortunately, this is the perfect time to be in need at the position as the market is currently flooded with talent.
There is a laundry list of quality free agents available, including Eric Decker, Hakeem Nicks, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and James Jones just to name a few. With the new salary cap recently announced at roughly $130 million, the Chiefs have a few more dollars than they originally thought. That said, they would be better served to use that money elsewhere and add a wideout through the draft.
After an incredible showing at the combine on Sunday, it’s clear wide receiver will be the deepest position at the draft. Currently selecting 23rd, Kansas City could even trade down to add another pick or two and still land a top-notch prospect. If an insane stretch of wide receivers were to go before they pick, the Chiefs could use the free agent market as a backup plan.
If most of those free agents are already locked up, then the odds of several teams choosing a receiver early would be very slim. Kansas City will be in good shape either way, but adding through the draft should be plan A.
With so many quality rookies and free agents out there, the Chiefs don’t need to get impatient at wide receiver. The team should focus the little money they have primarily on patching up the offensive line, and rebuild their receiving corps through the draft.
