10 Former Players The Kansas City Chiefs Would Love To Have

Let's remember the first rule of time-travel scenarios before we get into this — don't over think time-travel scenarios. That said, imagine Doc Brown has picked up Andy Reid and John Dorsey in his DeLorean. Who are these guys going to be plucking from the Kansas City Chiefs past to help fill the holes for the 2014 season? Let's take a look.

The Chiefs need a return specialist, and who better than The X-Factor? Dante Hall and special teams coordinator Dave Toub would be a terrifying duo for opposing teams.

The Chiefs don’t have the greatest history of wide receivers, but Spider Man's skill set could really add to one of their biggest areas of need.

The 2012 Hall of Fame inductee would be the perfect replacement for Branden Albert.

With Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah hitting the free agent market, Kansas City would love to have one of the best guards in the history of the game back.

The fact that Will Shields isn’t in the Hall of Fame yet is just ridiculous.

The Chiefs would love to have Jared Allen back to fill the hole at defensive end, but a younger version would be preferred.

Another great option to fill in at defensive end, but someone would have to tell him he can't flinch to draw false starts anymore.

The Chiefs already have two of the best outside linebackers in the league, but Derrick Thomas is one of the best pass-rushers of all-time. Plus, he did play some defensive end during his career and could help fill that need for the team.

For those who don't think players from 25 years ago could handle the guys today, Albert Lewis is 6-foot-2 and ran a 4.38 40-yard dash. He would be a perfect addition to the 2014 Chiefs. It crushed Kansas City fans when he joined the Oakland Raiders in 1994, but they would love to have him back to give the secondary the boost it desperately needs.

Deron Cherry was originally signed and cut by the Chiefs as a punter in 1981. He returned later that season as a safety, and eventually had five All-Pro seasons with the team. Once again, Kansas City doesn’t need a punter, but could really use some help in the secondary.

Kansas City badly needs some pass-catchers, and who better than the greatest tight end in NFL history? The situation could get awkward, as the Tony Gonzalez of the present would have to analyze himself with his new job, but I’m sure they both would adjust just fine.
