Eric Decker 

If Wilson were to leave, the most experienced veteran in the Chiefs wide receivers group would be Chris Conley. Bringing in a guy who is a little older wouldn’t be a terrible idea—someone that could not only make plays on the field but help coach up the younger guys like Jeremy Maclin did in his two years with the Chiefs.

Decker is also someone that is more familiar to Chiefs fans spending his first four years in the league with the Denver Broncos. Other fans might feel more pain that Decker was the final score for the Titans to beat the Chiefs in the disappointing Wild Card game this past season. If you can move past those two things, he could contribute to this team.

Decker’s production has been lower the last two seasons due to an injury finishing his season shy in 2016 and moving to the Tennessee Titans in 2017. He signed a one year deal with the Titans for $4 million. The entire offense for the Titans struggled last year as Decker led the team in catches with 54 and second most yards with 563.

Prior to these past two years, Decker tallied over 1,000 yards in three out of four years, one with the New York Jets and the other two with the Broncos. He is primarily a slot receiver which is exactly what the Chiefs would be looking for and is a big red zone threat. In those four years, he also scored between 11-13 touchdowns in three of those seasons.
