We have Jeff Webb, Dante Hall, Sammie Parker fighting over the number 2 spo this year. We need YOUTH. Still Tony G number one target but we need to address the wr position with YOUTH, skills, hands, deep threat. Joe Horn is NONE those
yes these points are all correct but you know whats worse than getting joe horn as a 1 season quick fix to a needy wr group? getting NOTHING AT ALL! joe horn would have been a decent 1 year fit in KC and yes would have been a great number 1 next season. the chiefs aren't going to demand much out of their number 1 receiver and the 35 year old horn would be more than capable. this would not have been a long term fix for either horn or the chiefs, but might have helped bridge the gap until some younger receivers developed(even if the chiefs drafted wr, and got some youth, history shows that it takes 2-3 years for receivers to make a significant impact, thus, a savy veteran leader to guide them in their early years would be perfect, look how good moss was WITH cris carter and if you say double teams i say yes they were on moss.) so i guess the chiefs are cool with kennison, and parker being their leading receivers next year, because its all but guaranteed they will.
