Do the Kansas City Chiefs need to look to free agency for their number two receiver? Perhaps that player is already on the team.
The 2015 Kansas City Chiefs turned around what could have been a potentially awful season, into a playoff berth and victory.
They were able to do this with a depleted offense which lost their biggest playmaker, running back Jamaal Charles, early in the season. The team was able to bring in an offensive piece in the 2014 offseason that were needed in wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. The team went from no clear No. 1 receiver in 2014 to a legitimate threat in Maclin.
Combine Maclin with the up-and-coming tight end in Travis Kelce, the Chiefs have been able to move the ball more effectively through the air. However, the production after Maclin (1,088 yards) and Kelce (875) drops off, with Albert Wilson coming in third at 451 yards.
With the offseason underway, many people are forming their opinions about what this team needs to do to continue to improve next season; obtain a true No. 2 receiver. KC has been without a good number one receiver so long that the thought of who is the number two has taken a back seat to finding that first one. The addition of Maclin has helped fill the missing piece, but are the Chiefs truly missing a number two?
