Kansas City Chiefs – Tyrann Mathieu
Andy Reid’s team has no shortage of playmakers on the offensive side of the ball. The Chiefs defense, however, is an entirely different manner. There’s some talent on the unit, but they could really use another playmaker in the back-end. There’s no more intriguing playmaker in free agency this season than Mathieu.
The Texans should do everything they can to keep The Honey Badger, but he also has the ability to go out and look for a team with better odds of winning a Super Bowl next season. Playing on a team with a high-scoring offense would be a welcome change for Mathieu.
Some Chiefs fans might be wondering exactly how Mathieu can fit into a secondary that has Eric Berry and Ron Parker as their starting safeties at the moment. The simple truth is that Kansas City should add Mathieu now and figure out the details later. Berry has struggled to stay on the field and Parker isn’t more talented than Mathieu. The former LSU star would find a way to play serious snaps for this defense.
The Kansas City coaching staff would love to face the “problem” of how to get all three guys on the field at once. It’s very possible Mathieu could go back to playing some slot corner with the Chiefs. No matter how you look at it, he’s a playmaker this team desperately needs on defense.
