Tight Ends for KC Chiefs to Target in Free Agency: James O’Shaughnessy
Funny enough, James O’Shaughnessy once played for the Chiefs. He was their fifth-round pick back in 2015 and didn’t do much with them prompting KC to trade him. He’s played with the Jaguars for the past four seasons and this past year totaled 28 receptions for 262 yards, which are decent numbers for a backup.
O’Shaughnessy is 29 years old and has shown that he can handle the duties of a TE2. His previous ties to the Chiefs could make him interested in signing here too, as it’d give him a chance to return to the team that drafted him while also competing for a Super Bowl ring.
This wouldn’t be a name that’d really excite people all that much, but O’Shaughnessy has been a consistent player in Jacksonville. He’s not starter material by any means, but the Chiefs don’t need one of those. The kind of player they’re looking for is what O’Shaughnessy is and that’s why this move could make a lot of sense.
The question is: Would O’Shaughnessy consider coming back to KC or is he still upset about them trading him so early on in his career?
