WR Skyy Moore's spot on the Chiefs' 53-man roster appears to be safe according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic, though Moore still needs to show improvement in the coming months to stick on the roster long-term.

After Kansas City re-signed veteran WR Mecole Hardman to a one-year deal, fair questions were raised about what receivers would ultimately make the roster. Hollywood Brown, Xavier Worthy, Rashee Rice, and Justin Watson all feel like locks, leaving Hardman, Skyy Moore, Kadarius Toney, Nikko Remigio, Montrell Washington, Justyn Ross, and others to fight for two or three final spots.

While Moore's future is far from secure, Taylor believes he'll still be part of the team.

It makes sense that Moore would stay on the team. He's still young but has the second-most experience at the position in Kansas City aside from Hardman. While he has only 494 receiving yards through two years, Moore was selected in the second round for a reason and I don't think the Chiefs want to just give up so soon.

Considering the uncertainty surrounding Rashee Rice and even Kadarius Toney, obviously for different reasons, Moore could be a beacon of stability at the back end of the rotation. Continuity matters in an offense as complex as the Chiefs' and I believe Moore's experience will ultimately earn him a spot.

He only has two years left on his rookie contract. Moore certainly hasn't done enough to earn an extension at this point, though he'll get another opportunity to prove his worth.

We've seen examples in the past of receivers starting slow before breaking out in their third years and beyond. Nico Collins failed to crack 500 yards in his first two seasons before notching 1,297 last year and earning a huge extension. Perhaps Moore can follow in his footsteps.

Either way, it looks like the Chiefs have every intention of at least giving their 2023 second-round pick the chance to make an impact.
