Even though almost every premier free agent has been signed, there are still several players the Kansas City Chiefs can sign to boost their offensive depth
The NFL offseason is at the point where mandatory minicamps are the most relevant news for most teams. Even though there isn’t much (football-related) news surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any additional news until training camp, like Orlando Brown Jr.’s contract. There are also still a solid amount of free agents still available who could prove to be important parts of a competitive football team.
After reviewing four potential free agent targets on defense, let’s take a look at four potential free agents on offense who could be members of the Kansas City Chiefs by the time Week 1 rolls around.
Julio Jones is one of the best wide receivers of the 21st century. After trading away a potential Hall of Fame wide receiver in Tyreek Hill, wouldn’t it make sense that the Kansas City Chiefs would sign another potential gold jacket receiver to help replace his production?
Yes, Jones is a little long in the tooth but he would be a veteran presence in a wide receiver room whose most experienced members are… Josh Gordon and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Although he may not get back to his glory days, he can certainly use his size and nuanced route-running to the Chiefs’ advantage.
Jones will likely not be very expensive, as he has been injured for parts of the previous two seasons and hasn’t hit 800 yards or 4 touchdowns since 2019. That could prove to be a low-risk, medium-to-high reward signing (depending on the money) for a team going through a transition phase at receiver.
