Kansas City Chiefs Need Improvements To Reach The Super Bowl

The Chiefs have to upgrade at wide receiver by adding a quality player or two at this position. Donnie Avery and Dexter McCluster just didn’t perform as legitimate number two options in the passing game this season.

While players like Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins may get a serious look, there is little proof that either of these receivers are good enough to be the true upgrades Kansas City needs.

Whether it would be a slot receiver like CFL star Weston Dressler, or if you want to dream big, free agent-to-be Eric Decker, or a player the Chiefs select in the 2014 NFL Draft, Kansas City must improve this position in a major way.

It is looking more and more like Dwayne Bowe, at his best, is a lower tier number one receiver, but more often, a decent number two pass catcher. His lack of consistent production is frustrating, and the Chiefs cannot rely on Bowe to be a dominating receiver.

If the Chiefs are going to take the next step as an offense, a play making wide receiver needs to be at the top of their off season list.
