The Kansas City Chiefs are not in major need of finding help or boosting their offensive firepower. However, if there is a chance to improve, they will always look to do so. That is exactly what they could do with the move to sign Antonio Brown, if they happened to make that kind of a move.
One NFL executive believes that they could very well look to make that move and have actually already considered it. He spoke to NFL Analysis Network about the possibility.
“I don’t know if they’ll do it, but the Chiefs have had internal thoughts about signing Antonio Brown. He would be a massive upgrade over Sammy Watkins.”
Brown resurrected his career last season after signing midseason with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was expected to quickly re-sign with the Bucs, but that has not happened yet. It has been a bit surprising, but it has given some the thought that Brown could end up signing elsewhere.
In the eight regular season games he played with the Buccaneers, Brown racked up 45 receptions for 483 yards and four touchdowns. He also added two receiving touchdowns in the playoffs. Those numbers show why a team like the Chiefs could take a look at adding him.
Can you imagine an offense of Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Antonio Brown, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire? Opposing defenses would have nightmares about facing them. Brown may not be a superstar in Kansas City, but he could be a huge part of an offense that competes for a Super Bowl.
At 32 years of age, Brown needs to make the right decision this offseason. He almost saw his NFL career end due to off-the-field issues. Without Tom Brady pushing for the Buccaneers to sign him, Brown wouldn’t have had a chance to show teams that he can still make a major impact.
All of that being said, it will be interesting to see what the Chiefs end up doing. They may not end up taking a chance on signing Brown, but it would be fun to watch.
