The Chiefs fanbase went into shambles on March 23. Tyreek Hill, maybe the best receiver to ever play for the Chiefs, was traded to Miami, to team up with Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle.

The Chiefs were able to get Hill for very cheap when they drafted him in 2016. With the 165th overall pick, Kansas City found a gem in a guy who can take it to the house at any moment thanks to his speed and athleticism.

While it seems like Hill may be missing what he had in Kansas City (you know, because of all the talking he keeps doing about them), the Chiefs may be better off in their post-Hill life, after all.

Chiefs’ best offseason move was Valdes-Scantling

While everyone was in a hurry to find out who would be featured in the offense after Hill’s departure, it took exactly one day to see that Marquez Valdes-Scantling would be the newest deep threat for Kansas City.

The Chiefs paid a total of $30 million, over three years, for Valdes-Scantling. A deal that could be worth up to $36 million with incentives. This deal could be great for the Chiefs and the future of their offense.

The Athletic‘s Nate Taylor seems to think it was the best offseason move:

“The Chiefs offense, especially with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes, will always require an element of speed. Since the team believed trading Tyreek Hill for a package of draft picks was necessary for future success, adding another receiver with elite speed was highly recommended. Marquez Valdes-Scantling joined the Chiefs a day after Hill was traded. Valdes-Scantling is not Hill. But Valdes-Scantling offers a combination of speed and size that should help the Chiefs’ offense stay potent. During the team’s offseason program, Valdes-Scantling demonstrated a strong connection with Mahomes on deep and intermediate routes.”

Taylor is right. The Chiefs are able to still keep an electric offense while saving money, and earning some draft capital in the process. It seems as if the Chiefs won the trade so far, but we will have to reassess that question later on.

Kansas City is due to have another great offensive year just based on what we have heard from the offseason workouts. Valdes-Scantling is showing he can provide that speed and deep threat to a team that has a deep bag when it comes to the playbook.
