KC Chiefs News: Wilson Or Conley And Da’Rick Rogers Is A Factor


KC Chiefs news this morning focuses on the battle for the number two wide receiver spot, and how the wide receiving corp will stack up in 2015.

2015 looks like it could be a great year for the KC Chiefs but one of the biggest question marks along with the offensive line is whether the rebuilt wide receiving corp will be able to play at a high level. Simply improving on the performance from 2014 isn’t good enough.

As everyone knows and has probably read a million times, no KC Chiefs wide receiver scored a receiving touchdown in 2014. It’s not hard to believe that the Chiefs will have a receiving touchdown in 2015, but now the question is who will be the one to step up and score the touchdowns.

The KC Chiefs went out and replaced Dwayne Bowe with Jeremy Maclin for the top wide receiver spot, and according to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, Maclin is ready to embrace the number one wide receiver spot for the Chiefs.

With Maclin poised for the top spot there will be a battle for the second spot opposite of him and Albert Wilson and rookie Chris Conley look to be the two players currently on the roster to battle for it.

The KC Chiefs could also try to bring in a veteran wide receiver from the free agent market to fill the number two spot and KC Kingdom explored the idea that Wes Welker could be a good fit with the Chiefs.

KC Chiefs: Should Chiefs Consider Signing Wes Welker [KC Kingdom]

"Wes Welker, formerly of the Denver Broncos, could help the Chiefs out in a lot of ways. For one, he’s fast and could get open quickly for Alex Smith to make a play. Second, he has experience in this league and could help mentor the younger guys on the team."

"Da’Rick Rogers is a physically gifted receiver who the Chiefs signed on a reserve-future contract late last season. Rogers has a nice combination of size (6-foot-2, 217 pounds), speed, strength and natural ball skills that gives him great upside as an NFL receiver."

Wilson Or Conley: Who Answers The Chiefs’ Call For A No. 2 Wide Receiver? [Fox Sports]

"In a perfect world, it’s Maclin, Jason Avant in the slot, and fill in the blank. Conley has been penciled in as a front-runner from the word ‘Go,’ but Wilson has 12 games under his belt already, a year in the system, insane quicks and a comfort zone with Avant and quarterback Alex Smith. Coach Andy Reid likes what he can trust, and that trust must be earned between the stripes."

"Maclin and Avant, 32, provide a strong presence for a 12-man receiving corps that includes 10 players with three years of experience or fewer. While Maclin sets the tone by going first in drills, Avant can often be spotted going last, watching the young players in front of him and offering tips later."
