5. Kadarius Toney, Wide Receiver

Rashee Rice is doing all he can to keep Kadarius Toney in Kansas City — but that's only after Toney did everything in his power to put himself on the chopping block.

Toney, a first-round pick in 2022, entered the league with a lot of promise. The former Florida Gator had plenty of talent and the New York Giants tabbed him as their future No. 1 wideout. That never happened as he wore out his welcome in just his second season.

Kansas City decided to bring him in, hoping they could tap into his potential. Fans were excited about the potential he offered, especially with Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball.

There were some moments of brilliance, including a 65-yard punt return in the Super Bowl. That was a Super Bowl record and Toney just missed bringing it in for a touchdown.

However, the majority of his time in Kansas City has been forgetful. Toney has just 340 yards on 41 receptions for a mere 8.3 yards per catch. He's also been plagued with several drops. To make matters worse, he doesn't seem ready to admit he needs to work harder. Instead, he continues to claim he's a top receiver in the NFL, which is concerning.

Even with Rice facing a suspension, it feels as though Toney is a longshot to make the roster. Marquise Brown and Xavier Worthy give them two capable wideouts, meaning they shouldn't be too worried about cutting ties.
