Chiefs sign a wide receiver after cutting Jeremy Maclin

The Chiefs said goodbye to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in a surprising move late last week that left them with an open spot on their 90-man roster.

They filled it with another wide receiver on Monday. Agent David Canter announced that his client Tevin Jones has signed a contract with the team.

Jones was undrafted out of Memphis in 2016 and spent some time with the Texans, but not during the regular season. He had 90 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns during his college career.

Jones will be bidding for a role down the depth chart, which means the Chiefs will be looking elsewhere to replace Maclin’s production at wideout. Tyreek Hill, Chris Conley, Albert Wilson, 2016 fourth-round pick Demarcus Robinson and 2017 fourth-round pick Jehu Chesson should be in that mix.

    Underwhelming. What a joke. And I am a Chiefs fan.

    Yesterday I was listening to Sirius radio and the NFL channel. They were interviewing the beat writer for the K.C. Star, a guy by the name of Sam Mellinger or something like that. Anyway, the analyists asked him to rate at current time the Chiefs entire “Wide Reciever Corp.” and he said “definitely in the bottom 1/3 of the NFL. That tells you alot. Just imagine how Alex Smith must have felt after hearing the news of losing Jeremy Maclin. Probably rather ill.

    Here are plausible explanations:
    • Maclin’s declining skills could no longer support his cap figure.
    • The Chiefs simply wish to go younger.
    • Maclin may have an off-the field issue, yet to be revealed.
    • Maclin may not have been a model teammate behind the scenes.
    If any coach knows Maclin, it’s Andy Reid. If Andy chooses to let him go, you’ve got to believe it’s the right decision.

    They’re not known as the Kansas City Cheaps for nothing.

    Ironically, Maclin’s numbers were less than Bowe’s. So there!

    What is the GM doing?

    The QB is the problem.

    Tyreek Hill is their best WR, and he’s at his best running after knocking out his pregnant girlfriend. Why is the sports media running from this? Oh… cause he’s on the chiefs.

    Cutting Maclin did create a hole, because he is a top receiver when healthy.
