The Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes lost one of the deadliest weapons in the league. Skip Bayless doesn't think Mahomes will be as good without his best target in Hill. Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins, meanwhile, picked up one of the best weapons in the league to improve their offense.

On Undisputed, co-host Bayless said:

"Mahomes is going to miss Tyreek. It's going to be a brave new world for Patrick Mahomes. Will he still be very good? Will he be a world beater next year?
"Well, he's coming off his worst year where he's down in every statistical category, even though you still defend him. But are you sure they're going to be quite as good as they have been? Without the ultimate weapon in Tyreek? I don't think Mahomes is going to be quite as good."

One of the more surprising moves this offseason happened when the Kansas City Chiefs traded wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.

In return for Tyreek Hill, they got a 2022 first-round pick previously acquired from the San Franciso 49ers. They also received a 2022 second-round pick, two fourth-round picks, and a 2023 sixth-round pick. Hill signed a four-year $120 million deal with the Chiefs to become the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL.

The Chiefs will likely find it difficult to replace Hill's production this coming season.

Rookie wide receiver Skyy Moore was selected in the second round (54th overall selection) of the 2022 NFL draft.

Moore played at Western Michigan and was a two-time First-Team All-MAC selection.

The Chiefs also signed veteran wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Tyreek Hill was the number one receiver in Kansas City. Now, they will be looking to these guys to become instant playmakers.

The Chiefs also lost Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason.


Tyreek Hill should help Tua have a breakout year. He and second-year wide out Jaylen Waddle could become one of the best duos in the league.
