6. Montrell Washington, WR/KR

On a similar note to what's already been mentioned about other wide receivers on this Chiefs roster, the situation for Montrell Washington certainly has to do with depth at the position, or at least guys the Chiefs might be more invested in.

With that being said, let's just assume for the moment that all goes well this offseason for the Chiefs at receiver. Skyy Moore shows some good stuff at training camp, Kadarius Toney stays healthy and proves he can be a valuable weapon, Mecole Hardman contributes offensively and on special teams, and other aspects of the roster go well. Louis Rees-Zammit proves to be an effective option in the return game...

If all things go well for the Chiefs at the offensive skill positions, including Montrell Washington having a strong offseason, he could be a pretty coveted player on the trade market. If the Chiefs don't have any openings in the return game and Washington proves to be a standout here, the NFL's new rules regarding the kickoff return game could really drive up interest around the league.

Washington was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 5th round back in 2022 for his skills as a return specialist. If he can prove his value in that phase of the game, it's going to have every team around the league calling Brett Veach and finding out whether or not he's available.

The NFL changed the kickoff return rule at the perfect time as Washington has dynamic skills as a return specialist both in the kicking game and on punt returns.
