The Chiefs still need to fill the hole created by L'Jarius Sneed but have limited financial flexibility to do so if they also want to retain their own free agents. So, a buy-low option with the potential to outplay his contract would be the way to go at cornerback.

Former Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champ J.C. Jackson fits that mold perfectly.

The 28-year-old defensive back was recently released by the New England Patriots after his second stint with the team. His cap hit of over $14.4 million was too large for a rebuilding team to have around, given the rough patch Jackson has hit over the past few seasons.

Over the last two years, Jackson only played in 15 games due to injuries. But as recently as 2022, he was named a second-team All-Pro and was ranked 20th by his fellow players on the NFL Top Players list.

Considering his age and athleticism, Jackson could be an excellent reclamation project for the Chiefs. He doesn't have to be the incredible ball-hawk he was early in his career but if he were a little better than he has been recently, he could still be a very intriguing depth option for Kansas City.

Regardless of who the Chiefs decide to sign with their remaining cap space and roster spots, they will start the NFL season as one of the title favorites. Currently on FanDuel Sportsbook, they are only behind the San Francisco 49ers in odds (+650) to win the Super Bowl LIX. Sign up now to get in on the action before the season starts.
