Finley is an intriguing option for any team looking to add a pass catching threat at tight end, but the Chiefs could present one of the more interesting fits.
Kansas City would benefit from adding weapons to the offense during the offseason, and a player like Finley would provide a safety net underneath for quarterback Alex Smith.
