Josh Reynolds, Wide Receiver

We mentioned earlier that the Chiefs had interest in Zack Moss before the draft. Another player in whom Brett Veach has showcased an interest is also on the open market: wide receiver Josh Reynolds.

Back in 2021, the Chiefs had an odd problem convincing wide receiver targets to join them in free agency. First, JuJu Smith-Schuster spurned their advances to re-sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers after serious consideration. Then Reynolds decided to go with the Tennessee Titans instead of the Chiefs. As they say, money talks.

While Reynolds isn't the sexy offseason addition that some Chiefs fans want to see, the truth is that Reynolds is a trusted auxiliary receiver who would add a lot to the Chiefs. At the age of 29, he'd bring experience and wisdom to a young wide receiver corps. He's also a lengthy (6'3") target who is very reliable (only 3 drops last season and 1 fumble in his last three years) and known for being a plus blocker.

Reynolds would be a terrific addition to place alongside Rashee Rice and a young deep threat. He also wouldn't break the bank. He has a nice situation to consider returning to in Detroit (assuming they want him back), but if he's up for a change, fans should be glad.
