Despite doing their best to give Patrick Mahomes no help in the passing game, the Kansas City Chiefs were able to win their second Super Bowl in a row and their third in the past five seasons. They now have their sights set on history, looking to be the first team to win the Lombardi Trophy three times in a row.

Mahomes has faith the Chiefs will get it done, saying they're going to pull it off in New Orleans. They still have to play the games but the front office did a better job building the offense around their star quarterback this year.

Kansas City struggled in 2023 due to a lack of options at wide receiver. This year, they might have too many options (which is a good problem to have with Rashee Rice's lingering suspension). Marquise Brown and rookie Xavier Worthy join Rice this year. That could leave players such as Skyy Moore or Kadarious Toney on the outside looking in.

While it's true their receiving corps is improved, there are a few other areas where the Chiefs could add talent. Here we look at six remaining free agents they should consider signing before minicamp.

6. D.J. Humphries, Left Tackle

Entering minicamp, the Chiefs have Wanya Morris listed as the starter at left tackle with rookie Kingsley Suamataia as the No. 2. Suamataia can develop into a long-term starter, which is the plan. Still, Morris isn't the ideal stop-gap starter. That's why D.J. Humphries should be added.

Humphries will turn 30 this season and is looking for a new NFL home for the first time in his career. He spent nine years with the Arizona Cardinals and has 98 starts under his belt. He was released ahead of 2024 and still has tread on the tires. There might be concern following a back injury in 2022 but he played 15 games last year and proved to be a decent starter — and would be a solid mentor for the rookie.
