Let’s travel to the realm of fantasy—a world where the Kansas City Chiefs have been able to restructure the deals of quarterback Alex Smith, linebacker Tamba Hali, and safety Eric Berry. Furthermore, they have parted ways with receiver Dwayne Bowe and, following trades and other cuts, have plenty of cap space for big-name free agents.
The most glaring need for Kansas City is not the offensive line, but wide receiver. And the target that the Chiefs have landed this offseason, partially due to his connection with GM John Dorsey, is none other than Green Bay Packers standout Randall Cobb.
While Cobb has increased his production greatly in 2014, the real star of the Green Bay offense is Jordy Nelson. And with rookie DeVante Adams showing flashes of promise, the Packers have parted ways with Cobb.
Coming off the best year of his career, the fourth-year wideout averaged 14.1 yards per reception, gaining 1,287 yards and scoring 12 times. Cobb is looking for No. 1 money, and knowing that he’s a deep threat with good hands, the Chiefs are more than happy to hand it over.
His speed will pair nicely with speedsters Jamaal Charles and De’Anthony Thomas. Factor in tight end Travis Kelce, and Kansas City owns a decent group of pass-catchers. The team, of course, will need to keep flexing said money in order to build a more reliable group, but that can be accomplished through the draft or another free-agent signing.
What do you think, Addicts? If all the cards fell into place, would you be happy with Randall Cobb signing? If you had your way, who would you want to pick up for the Chiefs?
