Chiefs G.M. suspects Albert Wilson heading to Bears

Soon-to-be free agent wide receiver Albert Wilson said recently he wasn’t sure if the Chiefs want him back.

But Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach seems to have a hunch about his next destination.

Via Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, Veach was asked whether he expected to keep Wilson, and connected the dots to new Bears coach and former Chiefs quarterbacks coach Matt Nagy.

Well, Matt’s in Chicago, so he knows all about him,” Veach said. “When teams watch Albert, they’ll understand how valuable he is. We certainly feel the same way. We’d be super excited to get him back, but we know we have to go through the process here.”

Wilson caught 42 passes for 554 yards last year, including a 10-catch, 147-yard game in Week 17 (when Patrick Mahomes started at quarterback).

The Bears obviously need help at receiver, and have been mentioned as a possible trade destination for Jarvis Landry.

  1. Possibly a #2 WR on a team with no WRs but more likely a #3 guy on most teams. Solid player but limited ceiling.

  2. News flash…Nagy is not the only one who knows his value, Dorsey got the kid to KC didn’t he??

  3. Not the biggest or fastest WR on any team. Drops passes when he is wide open but somehow catches passes in blanket coverage. He is an enigma.
    Based on his week 17 stats with Mahomes, hopefully the Chiefs will figure out a way to keep him.
