The Kansas City Chiefs were looking to add a talent across from No. 1 wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and they have done just that. Kansas City continued their offseason roll by adding speedy wideout Donnie Avery, who entered the league as a second-round pick.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the deal:

Avery will be a very interesting and exciting fit in Andy Reid’s offense. When you look at the type of receivers that Reid has used in the past — DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin — there is no question that Avery fits the bill.
If healthy, he could be a real force in Kansas City.
Last season, he racked up 60 receptions for 781 yards and three touchdowns, but saw his playing time decrease thanks to the great play from rookie wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.
