Chiefs' WR Skyy Moore was recently named a potential trade candidate as the Chiefs get set to finish OTAs and transition to mandatory minicamp. He's Kansas City's longest-tenured receiver and there are no reports indicating a trade is imminent, though the organization is always listening if a potential offer could be worthwhile.

Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report speculated on trade candidates for each team in the NFL and named Moore for Kansas City. Given Moore's struggles last year and the Chiefs' additions to the room this offseason, it wouldn't be a stunner to see them go in a different direction.

Brett Veach has expressed belief in the former second-round pick, though Moore's career has been disappointing thus far by any measure.

As Davenport writes, "After adding Rashee Rice in 2023 and veteran Marquise Brown and rookie Xavier Worthy in 2024, the Chiefs wide receiver room looks a lot different. And that affords Kansas City the opportunity to rid themselves of another mistake from the past few years."

In two seasons, Moore has caught 43 of 71 targets for 494 yards and one TD. He did score in the Super Bowl win over the Eagles but saw his snaps decline last year before suffering his injury.

The NFL has plenty of receivers who took a few years to develop into solid players, so perhaps Moore could be the next example. He was an excellent separator in college and could benefit from spread-out defenses thanks to Hollywood Brown and Xavier Worthy's respective speed. Despite only being with the organization for two years, Moore is the longest-tenured wideout on the team and we know how much continuity matters to Andy Reid.

I think the Chiefs should give it another year with Moore before trying to move on. The best case scenario for Kansas City is having a good Moore and given the draft capital the team spent to acquire him, I'd give him one more chance to deliver on his promise.

If he has another poor season though, the writing will already be on the way for his eventual departure.
