7 realistic trade targets for the Kansas City Chiefs before NFL's deadline

The NFL trade deadline is imminent, with the Kansas City Chiefs potentially on the lookout for a wide receiver to boost their struggling offense. Possibilities include Marquise "Hollywood" Brown from the Arizona Cardinals, Darius Slayton from the New York Giants, or the Denver Broncos' Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy.

4. Noah Fant, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Why this move makes sense: I wish Travis Kelce was still in his 20s and that we would never have to brace ourselves for life after him. Unfortunately, that is not how this all works out. Kelce has been great again this season, but it would be nice to put another receiving target out there in three tight end sets, instead of Blake Bell. Noah Fant could be a tremendous get for the Chiefs at the right price. A trio of Kelce, Fant, and Noah Gray could spell doom for any defense without tremendous pass-covering linebackers.

For Seattle, Fant was part of the package that they got for Russell Wilson. That trade package was a steal for Seattle, considering Wilson's struggles in Denver, but moving Noah Fant wouldn't affect their offense all that much. As it stands right now, Fant is playing around 50% of the snaps. He has yet to have a major impact on Seattle's offense. Cutting your losses and accruing draft capital is not a bad idea.

Potential compensation: 5th Round Pick or player swap

This is right up Brett Veach's alley. A former first-round pick with great athleticism for a bargain? Count the Chiefs in. Surrendering a fifth-round pick or a nice depth piece would be enough for Seattle to believe that they got something for the long-term from Kansas City for a guy with great upside. Fant has shown flashes of brilliance but has never shown dominance in his career. The Chiefs could have a great role in mind for him.
