The Kansas City Chiefs will have to revamp their wide receiver room this off-season. According to NFL Network’s Taylor Biscotti and Ian Rapoport, Juju Smith-Schuster has agreed to a three-year, $33 million deal with the New England Patriots. Smith-Schuster had one season with the Chiefs and it was productive. He had 78 receptions for 933 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season. The signing comes as a bit of a surprise, but the guaranteed dollars Kansas City offered versus those of the Patriots were significant enough to leave the Super Bowl champs.
Fellow receiver Mecole Hardman is also a free agent so general manager Brett Veach will have some work to do this offseason and during the draft trying to replenish the wide receiver room. They are some veteran wide receivers available such as the Los Angeles Rams Allen Robinson, Arizona Cardinals DeAndre Hopkins, and free agent, Odell Beckham, Jr.
Stay tuned to Chiefs Focus for more Kansas City free agent moves.
Thank you to Kansas City for the giving me the opportunity to come in and contribute to a Super Bowl, the most unforgettable experience of my life. I will always love my teammates, the coaching staff, and the fans for being so great to me. 🙏🏾 💍 pic.twitter.com/12mkvb2qMm
