Breaking: Chiefs Confirm One-Step Away From Completing The Signing Of Another Top Veteran

Chiefs Make Significant Progress in Signing the Best Remaining Wide Receiver
The top wide receiver available is meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs are searching the free-agent market frantically for a suitable replacement as they attempt to solve their Rashee Rice situation. Despite the signings of Hollywood Brown and youngster Xavier Worthy, the Chiefs will lack a playmaker for the upcoming season if their star wide receiver is sidelined for at least half the season, as some have predicted.

Regretfully, not many premium options are still on the market, which hurts the Chiefs. Great pass catchers, of course, don’t stick around after the draft. Still, a few receivers remain who could start and provide reliable depth while Rice is out.

Zay Jones, a former wide receiver for the Raiders and Jaguars, is one of them. Adam Schefter’s most recent reports indicate that the 29-year-old wide out will meet with the Chiefs on Thursday.

Chiefs News: WR Zay Jones will meet with Kansas City on Thursday.

Jones has already been to the Cowboys, Titans, and Cardinals. But the Chiefs present him with an exceptional chance to play a significant role in the offense as they compete for the Super Bowl.

Jones became one of the most sought-after free agents on the market after being released by the Jaguars, where he played for the previous two seasons.

Jones made his debut as a prominent figure during his final year at East Carolina. He broke the NCAA Division I football single-season record with 158 receptions this season. The Buffalo Bills selected him in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft as a result of this.

Jones inked a three-year, $24 million contract with the Jaguars during the 2022 offseason. He recorded 82 receptions, 823 yards, and five touchdowns as recently as 2022.

He might be a very interesting addition to the Chiefs if he can regain even a small portion of that 2022 form. He has the potential to be a dependable red-zone threat for Patrick Mahomes with his 6-foot-2, 200-pound physique.

Although Jones did not become the dominant receiver that some had hoped, the Chiefs have no better option than him as Rashee Rice insurance at this point in the summer.
