4. Kadarius Toney, WR

Kadarius Toney is one of those players who fans believe has a ton of potential, only for him to let them down on a season-to-season basis. He looked like he was ready to become one of the NFL's premier wideouts when he tallied 189 yards on 10 catches against the Dallas Cowboys in his rookie year, setting a new franchise record for a first-year New York Giants wideout.

But Toney hasn't even come close to matching that performance since then and not even a move to Kansas City could help him. The 25-year-old pass-catcher has played 20 games with the Chiefs over the last two seasons, yielding 41 receptions for just 340 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He's also had six drops during that stretch and recorded a lowly 66.7 passer rating when targeted in 2023.

If a wideout is putting Patrick Mahomes — a top-two quarterback of all time — on a level below Bailey Zappe (68.8), there's a serious issue.

Much like Moore, Toney must now compete with an extremely promising WR core going forward. He's no longer a lock to make the 53-man roster, especially when the Chiefs can save $2.5 million by trading him at any point this offseason. Even if Kansas City gives up on Toney, there's likely to be at least one team out there that believes they can rehabilitate the former 2021 first-round pick.

After having not reported to any offseason workout until June 11, Toney might already be on the coaching staff's wrong side.
