If the Chiefs want to continue shopping in free agency's second week, there are still plenty of good players remaining.

Wide Receivers

Best Players Still Available: Josh Reynolds, Mike Williams, Hunter Renfro, Michael Gallup, Isaiah Hodgins, DJ Chark, Tyler Boyd, Odell Beckham Jr., Michael Thomas, Mecole Hardman

The Chiefs' lone big addition thus far was bringing in a much-needed weapon for the wide receiver room with Hollywood Brown, but the Chiefs need more than just Brown to revitalize the unit. Most (myself included) believe the Chiefs will now turn to the draft to get the next significant addition to the group, but there are some interesting names left in free agency.

While Brown does give K.C. a much-needed deep threat and can play on the outside, he doesn't have the size of a typical X-receiver. So adding someone with some size to play on the outside would make some sense. My favorite option there is Josh Reynolds, who would be a nice part of a receiver rotation without breaking the bank or demanding such a large role that drafting a receiver early would seem redundant. Mike Williams would also be great in that X-receiver role, but he'll likely demand a bigger deal and more snaps than Reynolds would.

I also really like the idea of getting Hunter Renfrow as a checkdown option out of the slot. I don't know that he's needed, but he would be a huge upgrade to the room in terms of reliability. After that, I would be looking at cheap one-year dart throws. Guys like Michael Gallup, Isaiah Hodgins, and DJ Chark have the size to play on the outside but have enough questions to keep their price down which makes them worth a flier.

You also hear guys like Tyler Boyd, Odell Beckham Jr., and Michael Thomas mentioned, but I don't know that their play warrants the payday that their name might bring with it. If they would be willing to take a cheap single-season deal to win a Super Bowl, then fine, but otherwise I'd prefer the other guys I have mentioned.

Finally, K.C. could bring Mecole Hardman back again, but only if he's cheap because the Brown signing means his skillset isn't needed as much as it was late last season.
