“I want a uniform that is lightweight and durable,” explained WR Dwayne Bowe, who served as Kansas City’s player model at the launch. “I want it to be able to last four quarters without being drenched in water and I don’t want it sagging down for guys to tackle me.

It’s just so comfortable; I can’t even explain it to you. I had this on all day like it was a regular outfit, so you can imagine how I feel about the new uniforms.”
Texas A&M’s Ryan Tannehill would probably require a trade up from No. 11.

Please take our poll and pick whom you think is the best fit for the Chiefs. Explain your reason why for your choice in the comment section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
