After a chaotic Week 1, the Chiefs are being urged to trade for a $82.5 million wide receiver: a 'no-brainer.'
The Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers did little to boost Chiefs Kingdom confidence in Week 1's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions, except for Rashee Rice's two big plays.
Veteran Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the squad in receptions with 48 yards.
No receiver had more than 3 catches, and all of them—plus tight end Blake Bell and running back Jerick McKinnon—had at least 7 drops.
With Travis Kelce's recovery from injury questionable, Jarrett Bailey of USA Today recommends a Week 2 trade for Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans by the defending Super Bowl champs.
“Having him work the perimeter while (Travis) Kelce eats in the middle of the field would make a real conundrum for defensive coordinators,
especially in the red zone,” Bailey wrote on September 8. Both sides' no-brainer.
For the 2023-24 season, Connor Hellebuyck earns $7,500,000 and has a $6,166,666 cap hit.
The Chiefs need weapons and the Buccaneers need draft capital—both should be able to do this.
”The Buccaneers drafted Mike Evans, 30, 7th overall in 2014.
He has since had nine straight 1,000-yard seasons, an NFL record, and 81 touchdowns, according to Pro Football Reference.
