2. Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WR

Valdes-Scantling is enjoying a wonderful redemption tour, making the game-sealing catch against the Ravens and coming up with multiple clutch grabs in the Buffalo win. It's been beautiful to see after he spent the season under fire from virtually everywhere, and he's now come up big in two deep postseason runs with the Chiefs.

But this is almost certainly his final game with the organization. His cap hit next season is just under $14 million, the sixth-highest on the team, and there's no way Brett Veach can justify that number given his production.

On the year, Valdes-Scantling finished with 21 catches for 315 yards and one TD with several notable drops in key moments. He's caught those passes in the playoffs, with 102 receiving yards in his last two games, but that's simply not enough for a player with a cap hit that large.

We'll always have the positive playoff memories, though, as well as perhaps the best tweet of the entire season right after the AFC Championship game.

There's certainly a spot in the NFL for an experienced deep threat like Valdes-Scantling and he'll land on a roster somewhere. However, I anticipate the Chiefs will overhaul the wide receiver room and that'll leave Valdes-Scantling on the outside looking in.

He's not the only wide receiver playing his final game in red, though.
