Two Wide Receivers That Would Make KC a Top Five Offense

The two W/R that the Chiefs should consider picking up are...


1. Marvin Harrison 

Even though he has lost a step and is growing older, the Chiefs should give him a two-year contract and an automatic upgrade from Mark Bradley or Bobby Engram. For Example:

Marvin Harrison: 60 Receptions, 636 Yards, 10.6 Average, and five Touchdowns 

Bobby Engram: 47 Receptions, 489 Yards, 10.4 Average, no Touchdowns

Mark Bradley: 30 Receptions, 380 Yards, 12.7 Average, three Touchdowns

I do think Mark Bradley should start over Engram IF we pick up one of the two listed here or others. Mark is somewhat young and an untapped resource that the Chiefs need to incorporate into their new offense that's supposed to be balanced, but that's harder to believe that since pass-happy Todd Haley is running the show. (I like pass better than rush, so I don't mind at all).

Even though he is getting older, he still can play ball better than most and could be a good mentor to Dwayne Bowe.

2. Plaxico Burress (for One Reason)

We could get Plax CHEAP. He would be such a steal, if people in the organization could convince Pioli to deal to him, but only if he doesn't get any more charges pressed against him. The other WR are asking too much or are getting really old, excluding Marvin. The Cardinals, I think, want two first rounders and a second for Anquan Boldin and that would work well with Todd as our head coach.

I think if we even pick up one of the two receivers, our offense would go up immensely, and we would be in the top 15 at least. I also think that we didn't take a blow when we traded away Gonzalez, because the new offense focuses more on the receivers than the TE.
