In a shocking move during the 2022 offseason, Kansas City decided to trade Tyreek Hill after it was clear the two sides weren't going to agree on an extension. The Chiefs sent Hill to Miami in exchange for a first, second, and fourth round pick in 2022 and a fourth and sixth in 2023.

Hill proved to be worth the price Miami paid, racking up 119 receptions in each of his first two seasons in South Beach. In all, he has 238 catches for 3,509 yards, and 20 touchdowns for the Dolphins.

Kansas City doesn't regret the move despite struggles at wideout. It's hard to argue with them since they've won titles in each of the two years without Hill, but it's also true they expected to have better production from their receiving corps.

That includes Skyy Moore, who they took in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Moore was never supposed to be a replacement for Hill but he was expected to be a productive part of a receiving committee.

The Western Michigan product hasn't done that as he enters his third year in the league with just 43 receptions for 494 yards with one touchdown on his resume. Like the rest of the receivers on this roster not named Rashee Rice, he underperformed in 2023 and is suddenly in danger of losing his job.

Kansas City selected Xavier Worthy, who broke the NFL 40-yard dash record this year, and signed Marquise Brown in free agency. Even with Rice facing a suspension, that pushes Moore down the depth chart — and could be enough for him to miss the cut.
