The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing back a familiar face in free agency, re-signing receiver Demarcus Robinson on a one-year deal.
Run It Back, Part 3?
On Thursday, the Kansas City Chiefs brought wide receiver Demarcus Robinson back into the fold on a one-year deal. The Chiefs were trying to sign both JuJu Smith-Schuster and Josh Reynolds, sources tell FanSided, but after missing on those targets, circled back on a known quantity.
Robinson, 26, had a career year in 2020 for the Chiefs. The fifth-year veteran caught 45 passes and 466 yards — both career bests — with three touchdowns. While those numbers aren’t incredible, they’re solid for a fourth option in the passing game. This is exactly what Robinson will be for Kansas City, slotting behind tight end Travis Kelce and fellow receivers Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman.
The Chiefs have been active this offseason, even if the results of their pursuits have been uneven. Kansas City signed guard Joe Thuney to a five-year, $80 million deal at the onset of free agency, which was detailed at FanSided. The Chiefs also brought in guard Kyle Long on a one-year DeAndre, who is coming out of retirement after spending his entire career with the Chicago Bears.
Robinson came to the Chiefs as a fourth-round pick out of the University of Florida, and has earned a Super Bowl ring, and two Super Bowl appearances, during his time with Kansas City. This is now the second straight year Robinson has hit the open market, only to return on a one-year pact.
