There aren't many free agent wide receivers left, but one new option is available as the Cowboys released former Steelers WR Martavis Bryant on Wednesday. Bryant hasn't played since 2018, before the Chiefs won their first Super Bowl with Patrick Mahomes, but was once a coveted receiver.

Frankly, I think this is one of the least likely options for Kansas City. Bryant is 32 years old and has dealt with a variety of issues both on and off the field. If I'm being honest, I didn't even know he was on the Cowboys.

That being said, the Chiefs could use a receiver and options are slim. Could Bryant make sense?

There are a lot of receivers I'd rather make a move for than Bryant. He had a promising start to his career with three straight seasons over 548 receiving yards and 17 total TDs, though it seems obvious his best days are behind him.

Kansas City is in a difficult spot at receiver after the latest Rashee Rice report indicating he's being investigated for allegedly hitting a photographer at a club in Dallas early Monday morning. The Chiefs have improved their depth at the position by adding Hollywood Brown and Xavier Worthy, yet the group feels incomplete until we know what's going on with Rice's status.

Bryant is not the answer though. Maybe seven years ago I would've liked to add him to the roster, but he hasn't played meaningful football since Alex Smith was under center in Kansas City.

As much as I'm desperate to add someone, we can pass on Bryant.
