Is DeSean Jackson the Right Fit for KC? 


Right Fit for Chiefs?

A week ago Kansas City didn’t want anything to do with Eagles Wide Receiver, DeSean Jackson. However, when Philadelphia cut their star player on Friday suddenly the Chiefs became very interested in bolstering their offense. But is he the right move for the guys in Red?

Good article Nick. I don't know how well our D will adjust from their meltdown either but I know that we got rid of one of the biggest architects of that meltdown (Kendrick Lewis) so that should help.

And Jason Avant don't rule out if Jackson signs that KC brings him as well. He's very close to Jackson and KC could use both as insurance in the event Hemignway or Jenkins doesn't step up.

I think DJax would be a huge get for the Chiefs, but I also think he'll need a large contract in which we can't necessarily afford. No one has restructured as of yet so I'm not sure it's going to happen. If the Chiefs get desperate they could end up releasing someone to make room.

Cheapest and possible long term answer could be drafting Cooks from Oregon St. He's similar to DJax. He has blazing speed and is known for catching everything. He could be had at #23 and I know that's not ideal, due to other needs. But the way our offense performed, WR is a huge need.

I'm not a GM, but with our cap situation and needs, I would draft Cooks and avoid any risk that would come from DJax as well as the media circus. Let him go to the Jets. He'll have about four years I success before he's 31 and considered "old". Long term, it's the smart play.

@ArrowheadPride: DeSean Jackson's agent also reps Chiefs Eric Fisher and Justin Houston.

Jets are NOT one of the nine teams that now have inquired on free-agent WR DeSean Jackson.

Would love to see Desean as a Chief!! He is the perfect missing piece to this offense. The thought alone makes me giddy.

Reality sets in, No way we land him...

Been several thru the years...guess you'd have to define 'big name' free agents...just off top of my head...Ty Law would be one as a recognizable big name.

Great, now I've got to have a signature that makes people happy on both the Royals and Chiefs board at the same time?  Aren't they the same fans?

Schefter and Rapoport have tweeted nothing.  I'm not buying anything until they do.
