The Kansas City Chiefs lost wide receiver Tyreek Hill this offseason — thanks to the trade that sent the perennial Pro-Bowler to the Miami Dolphins — leading to a bit of a reset for the franchise when it comes to their wide receivers.

KC brought in JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling this offseason and they drafted Skyy Moore in the second round.

Those three wide receivers will join Mecole Hardman as the top four wide receivers on the roster.

There isn’t a clear front-runner for the Chiefs’ No. 5 wide receiver spot. And even with the presence of tight end Travis Kelce, who will likely be quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ top target in 2022, the team could still use another reliable wide receiver.

Pro Football Network thinks that wide receiver could be four-time Pro-Bowler T.Y. Hilton.

From PFN:

T.Y. Hilton’s trademark deep speed isn’t what it used to be. That said, he’s still a sharp route runner and an impressive leader. It’s possible Hilton returns to Indianapolis over the next few weeks, but he could also look to latch onto a contender like the Rams or Kansas City Chiefs, just to chase a ring at this point in his career. He caught 23 passes for 331 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Hilton obviously isn’t what he used to be. And at 32 years old, we’ve probably seen the last of Hilton leading the league in receiving (as he did in 2016).

But Hilton can still be a productive player. And if the Chiefs signed him to be a No. 4 or No. 5 wide receiver, there wouldn’t be a lot of pressure on Hilton to return to his Pro-Bowl form. The former Colts star could fill that role, catch around 45 passes for 600 yards and a couple of touchdowns and he’d be more than worth the cash.

Kansas City could use another veteran to bolster the wide receiver room. Hilton has battled injuries, but he’s a quality locker room addition who could make the Chiefs’ offense a bit more dangerous when he’s on the field.
