Chiefs Kingdom is buzzing with speculation about potential wide receiver trades the team could pull off ahead of tomorrow's trade deadline, but Andy Reid was quick to pour cold water on that idea today.
If Reid is to be believed, it doesn't look like Kansas City will make a major move. For better or worse, it looks like this may be the group the organization will move forward with at wide receiver.
Here's the latest:
Andy Reid Dismisses Chiefs Need for Wide Receiver Upgrade
The play Reid is referencing, of course, is Skyy Moore's ill-fated "dropped" pass on 4th down when the Chiefs were trying to make a comeback.
Skyy Moore is receiving much ire from Chiefs fans today for good reason, but it's at least Reid's public opinion that he doesn't deserve the flak.
With the Chiefs reportedly shopping Richie James and uncertainty around the position group, these comments are a bit of a surprise relative to the reactions around the fan base today. However, Reid's stance is expected upon a closer look.
The organization already invested critical assets into the position with the Kadarius Toney trade and the second-round selections of Moore and Rashee Rice. Toney had massive plays in the Super Bowl win but has disappointed otherwise, while Moore's struggles are well-documented.
That being said, those assets are spent. Rice looks like a budding star and the Chiefs believe in their player development. Spending more assets to bolster a position you've already heavily invested in may not be an attractive proposition, especially considering the potential morale hit for Toney and Moore.
This just may be the group we're rolling with. If that's the case, fingers crossed that player development system starts seeing the fruits of its labor soon.
