Everyone in the league is playing catch-up to the Kansas City Chiefs. They have been to the mountaintop multiple times and head into 2024 looking to three-peat as Super Bowl champs.

One team that can't find a way to beat the Chiefs in the postseason is the Buffalo Bills. In Round 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft, Buffalo traded back with the Chiefs, giving them the opportunity to select WR Xavier Worthy with the 28th overall pick.

The Bills continued their questionable decision-making with their latest free agent signing.

Bills Reportedly Sign WR Chase Claypool

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bills signed WR Chase Claypool. With the departure of Stefon Diggs from Buffalo this offseason, adding Claypool doesn't move the needle.

They signed Curtis Samuel in free agency before drafting Keon Coleman in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Coleman and Claypool are both big-bodied playmakers on the outside and will be playing similar roles.

But Claypool has become a complete non-factor over the past couple of years. After racking up 800-plus yards in 2020-2021, the former Notre Dame product has been an invisible factor on offense.

Across the past three seasons with the Steelers, Bears, and Dolphins, Claypool only notched 22 receptions for 528 yards and two touchdowns.

In a pressure-filled 2024 campaign on the way, it's a joke that Buffalo added Claypool to the roster. He's shown that he's not an NFL-caliber playmaker so having him join the Bills is music to Kansas City fans' ears.

Seeing a team trying to play catch up, making a move like this only puts a smile on the face of the Chiefs faithful.
