It goes without saying that the Kansas City Chiefs are starving for wideouts. Today, their list of candidates added a few more entries.

Two notable veterans, Brian Hartline of the Miami Dolphins and Harry Douglas of the Atlanta Falcons, were officially released on Friday.

Neither will single-handedly revamp a receiving corps—particularly at this stage in their respective careers—but they can upgrade the majority of them.

Douglas is a slot specialist who’s more elusive than fast, but he’ll also turn 31 years old next season. Being that Kansas City has no shortage of slot options, you probably don’t need to keep tabs on him.

Hartline, on the other hand, is more interesting. At 6’2″, 180 pounds, he’s accustomed to playing outside the numbers, and while he’s not a pulse-thumping playmaker, his skill set meshes with a West Coast passing attack. In a nutshell, he’s is a solid route-runner with trustworthy hands.

The production of both wideouts dipped in 2014, but considering the Chiefs’ standards, now isn’t the time to be picky.
