NFL Free Agency: 5 teams that should sign Patrick Peterson
4. Kansas City Chiefs
Any idea of a player chasing a championship unquestionably starts with the Chiefs right now. They are lined up as an annual Super Bowl favorite for as long as Patrick Mahomes is the quarterback, and he’s obviously not going anywhere.
The Chiefs could use reinforcements at cornerback. L’Jarius Sneed looks like a keeper, but the rest of the group is a clear weakness of the team and a capable veteran would be a fit. Tyrann Mathieu was a teammate of Peterson’s in Arizona for five seasons (2013-17), so a reunion could be in order and Mathieu would presumably sell Peterson on Kansas City (or more likely, vice versa).
The Chiefs have a little work to do to get to the salary cap now, but that shouldn’t be too bad overall and certainly not as bad as some teams have it. Peterson will not require a huge investment, and he should have Kansas City on his list of preferred landing spots.
