Adding these AFC West rival stars to the Kansas City Chiefs’ roster would be so beyond unfair.

As if the Kansas City Chiefs were not already a fantastic football team, just imagine if they got to steal one star player off each AFC West rival’s roster.

While the Denver Broncos, the Las Vegas Raiders and the Los Angeles Chargers are all chomping at the bit to overtake the Chiefs, it has been Kansas City’s division for quite some time now. However, the Chiefs do have a few glaring weaknesses on their otherwise loaded roster. If they could steal a pass-rusher, a wide receiver and a playmaking defensive back, who is beating them?

Let’s make Broncos, Chargers and Raiders fans absolutely furious by stealing one of their stars.

Kansas City Chiefs: Stealing one player from every AFC West rival team

A healthy Bradley Chubb would certainly suffice the Chiefs’ pass-rushing needs

There are plenty of players to consider stealing off the Denver Broncos if you are the Chiefs. While adding Justin Simmons in the back-end of the defense would be swell, as would stashing Russell Wilson as the greatest backup quarterback of all time behind Patrick Mahomes, Bradley Chubb coming off the edge seems to make the most sense here. When Chubb is healthy, he is excellent.

He may not have registered a sack a season ago, but when Chubb plays at least 14 games in a season, he has shown he can get his defense at least 7.5. Chubb made his first career Pro Bowl in 2020 and was one of the best defensive rookies in football in his first season coming out of North Carolina State in 2018. Inconsistent when it comes to his health, but Chubb has shown he can ball.

In theory, Chubb would play second fiddle to Chris Jones in the Chiefs’ pass rush, much like he did his first two years in the league to future Pro Football Hall of Famer, Von Miller. If Chubb can be a high-end No. 2 in the trenches for Kansas City, it will go a long way towards rookie George Karlaftis making something of himself before the Chiefs have to decide on his fifth-year option.

Chubb may not be the best pass-rusher in the AFC West right now, but his addition hurts Denver.
