Earlier today, all-time great receiver Randy Moss was cut by the Minnesota Vikings after less than a month with the team.

The exact reasons why are still a mystery, but a bizarre post-game conference most likely had something to do with it.

There are already many teams that are speculated to have interest in putting a claim on Moss. These teams include: the St. Louis Rams, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots, and the Oakland Raiders.

One interesting scenario is if Moss landed in Kansas City.

A young team on the rise, with a lot of promise could really benefit from having a receiver like Moss and his his veteran leadership and play making ability.

The Chief's current receivers include Dwayne Bowe, Tony Moeaki, Leonard Pope, and an injured Chris Chambers.

Bowe would also benefit greatly by playing across Moss because off the attention he would get could open things up for the elusive Bowe. If Bowe continues to play at the rate he has over the last several weeks, he could gain confidence and become one of the league's best play makers.

Also, acquiring Moss would clear any questions about the Chiefs being the best team in the AFC West. Their already explosive offense would gain one more play maker, which some have thought they needed in order to get over the hump and be one of the best teams in the AFC.

One issue with this move would be that Quarterback Matt Cassell may not have the strong arm required to get the ball to an open Moss.

However, when Cassell was still with New England in 2008, Moss caught 69 catches for 1008 yards and 11 touchdowns, so there is evidence that the pairing can still have success even without a strong arm to throw down field.

If Kansas City wants to become a truly dominant force in the AFC, they should consider putting a claim on Randy Moss. In doing so, they would have a veteran to help Dwayne Bowe, and a potent offense that could become Super Bowl bound.
