The Kansas City Chiefs have been working hard on their roster this offseason in hopes of fielding antoher Super Bowl-contending squad this fall. Several key names were re-signed while other new faces were brought in as we approach the third week of free agency, leaving time to tell if the Chiefs can successfully pull off the three-peat.

But even with the moves they've made, the Chiefs' 2024 roster is far finalized. There's still a lot of time for other free agents to be brought in while the NFL Draft is just over a month away. Training camp will be here before we know it, pitting new and old faces head-to-head to come out with the best 53-man roster possible.

When it comes to returning players who are on the bubble, here are three Chiefs whose jobs aren't safe as free agency continues.

1. WR Kadarius Toney

After last year's performance, it isn't surprising to see that Kadarius Toney is fighting for his job.

The former 2021 first-rounder has failed to live up to expectations as his injury-plagued career continues. After suiting up in a career-high 13 games, Toney only hauled in 27 passes for 169 yards (the worst mark of his career) and one touchdown. At this point, his 189-yard game as a rookie is nothing more than a distant memory.

Toney becoming his own worst enemy is another reason why his job is in jeopardy. He's frequently injured, highlighted by his missing the Chiefs' last seven games of the regular season and playoffs. He was also an off-field distraction at one point, taking to social media to seemingly accuse Kansas City of lying about his injury situation (even though he claimed the remarks were about his former team, the New York Giants).

Toney now heads into the offseason looking to fight for his job. The Chiefs brought in Marquise Brown to be the new No. 1 wideout while Rashee Rice will look to build off a promising rookie season. Names like Justin Watson, Skyy Moore, and Justyn Ross are also in the mix, leaving time to tell if Toney has what it takes to separate himself from the pack.
