Wide Receiver

This area of the Chiefs roster is the one getting most of the attention these days, a level of concern fueled by the lingering offensive frustrations of a season ago combined with the drama surrounding Rashee Rice this offseason.

The truth is the Chiefs are better off at the position than they were before the offseason started, but the team is still very much rolling the dice in some ways. Xavier Worthy and Marquise Brown are the marquee additions at wideout and their presence expands the playbook considerably. But the potential loss of Rice for several games creates a cloud of uncertainty and then there are previous disappointments still competing for meaningful reps.

Can Justin Watson ever turn in more than he has so far? Will the Chiefs ever get any real return on the field in their second-round investment in Skyy Moore? Will Kadarius Toney reward the Chiefs for their belief in him despite evidence to the contrary? Can Justyn Ross ever provide any production along with the promise?

It's a good signal that the Chiefs brought in Zay Jones for a free agent visit in recent weeks, so perhaps further moves are coming. For now, the position remains a roster concern for the Chiefs heading into a second consecutive season.
