Kansas City Chiefs: Dorial Green-Beckham not worth signing

The Kansas City Chiefs have had all sorts of problems this offseason. They should not add to that list by inking former Titans and Eagles receiver Dorial Green-Beckham to a contract.

Say what you want about Dorial Green-Beckham and his potential, but the guy is only 24 years old and has already been dismissed from two NFL teams. He has just two seasons of NFL experience under his belt, playing for the Titans in 2015 and the Eagles in 2016.

Of course people are naturally going to link Dorial Green-Beckham to the Kansas City Chiefs because why not? It would make sense after all.

Green-Beckham played several years of college ball at the University of Missouri, roughly two and a half hours from Kansas City. The Chiefs also are in need of a wide receiver after cutting Jeremy Maclin for reasons we’re still unsure of.

I understand why those reasons make sense when it comes to signing Dorial Green-Beckham, but signing him would be a really bad idea. If the guy has already played for two NFL teams in just two seasons, that’s probably a giant red flag, people.

Green-Beckham was a star at Missouri, but was always getting into problems off the field. That led to his eventual dismissal from the program and he wound up sitting on the sidelines with the Oklahoma Sooners for a season. After not playing a single snap for the Sooners and not having taken the field in over a year, Chiefs fans wanted this guy on their team, which I thought was ridiculous.

The former Tiger heard his name called in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, landing with Tennessee. Green-Beckham had 32 catches for 549 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie, but was traded to the Eagles the next offseason.

Green-Beckham had a few more catches in Philadelphia with 36, but had significantly less yardage at 392 and only found the end zone twice. He was then let go by the Eagles on Friday in a move that signified the kid might not have what it takes to succeed in the NFL.

It is worth noting that Dorial Green-Beckham did have rookie quarterbacks in both situations (Marcus Mariota and Carson Wentz), but those two quarterbacks did well with spreading the football around as rookies.

Chiefs fans who are also Missouri fans are going to want to see Dorial Green-Beckham come to Kansas City. Those are about the only people wanting to see that happen though. I say listen to what the trend is telling you: Two teams in two seasons is not a good sign for a young NFL player.

Hopefully the Kansas City Chiefs stay far away from DGB.
