Kansas City Chiefs 2022 NFL Offseason Targets

By Carlos Chacon

Following the crushing home loss in overtime to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas City Chiefs are now 2-2 in the AFC Championship Game. However, that should not deter Patrick Mahomes and Co. from having another strong run towards another title in the next season. That being said, what are some upgrades that the Chiefs could pick up from the free-agency market this offseason?

Jadeveon Clowney (DE)

Kansas City needs the most help in the pass-rushing department, and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney could be had on a short-term deal as a temporary fix in the defensive line until the former first-overall draft pick proves that he can sustain his banner campaign over in Cleveland.

Clowney’s nine sacks with the Browns this past regular season is his best mark over the past three seasons. Having a high-profile name might sway the Chiefs towards other alternatives at the position such as Emmanuel Ogbah and Randy Gregory, but Clowney appears to be the most solid fit in KC’s front seven.

Haason Reddick (OLB)

Kansas City’s pass rush could also be generated from the second level instead of the defensive line, and Carolina’s Haason Reddick is that man for the job. Reddick has 23.5 sacks over the last two seasons, which ranks fifth amongst all defensive players within this span.

Another relatively more attractive option at outside linebacker is Chandler Jones. However, Jones has had a mixed bag of results over the past two seasons, whereas Reddick has much higher upside and could possibly be had at a cheaper rate than the former two-time first-team All-Pro.

Allen Robinson II (WR)

If the Chiefs were not to fix their pass-rushing woes immediately, they’d also do well to add another receiving threat beyond the dynamic duo of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Hill already has the speed base covered, meaning there’s redundancy at his position with Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson also in the lineup.

That being said, Chicago’s Allen Robinson addresses Kansas City’s need for a possession-based wideout to work in tandem with Kelce in the intermediate passing game. Robinson’s lackluster 2021 campaign with the Bears also means that the Chiefs could save themselves some money, especially with the tantalizing prospect afforded to the 28-year-old receiver playing for a Super Bowl contender immediately.
