The Kansas City Chiefs are adding another broad receiver to their offense ahead of the NFL trade deadline by buying Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants on Thursday afternoon.
In exchange for Toney, the 2021 first pick, the Chiefs will send an offset third round pick in 2022 and a sixth pick to the Giants.
The compensation option was one of the options the Chiefs acquired for allowing Ryan Poles to leave the organization to become general manager of the Chicago Bears.
Toney’s biggest problem with the Giants during his first two years was health, and he hasn’t played since Week 2 of this season. He’s only caught two passes this season after catching 39 420 meters as a rookie.
He still has a lot of potential and will give Patrick Mahomes and the captains another weapon to use in their passing game.
The Chiefs have dramatically overhauled their studio wide over the past few months. After trading Tyreek Hill for the Miami Dolphins for a bonus from the draft picks, the Chiefs added Juju Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdez-scantling to the free agent and then drafted Skyy Moore in the second round. .
Now they have Toney join that group and close Travis Kelce.
The Chiefs’ foul didn’t miss a beat with all the changes and still averaged 403 yards per game (second best in the league) and 31.9 points per game (best in the NFL). They’ve had three 40-point games this season, including a 44-23 win this past Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers.
Kansas City will say goodbye this week and return next week for a home game against the Tennessee Titans.
