At 6’2” and 205 pounds Lorenzo Cain wouldn’t be the biggest wide receiver in the NFL, but he would be four inches taller and 20 pounds heavier than the league’s leading receiver last year, Antonio Brown.

Center fielders tend to be the most athletic of the outfielders, and Cain’s long strides could easily transitions to the gridiron.

The Chiefs finally added a deep threat at the position in Jeremy Maclin, and if Cain was opposite the former Philadelphia Eagle, quarterback Alex Smith would have two solid options down field.

Cain was a late bloomer in baseball, waiting until high school to try out for his first team. If he could pick up baseball so easily, why couldn’t head over to Arrowhead Stadium and catch a few passes?
