Chiefs Are Trading For Notable Wide Receiver This Thursday

The Kansas City Chiefs continue adding weapons for quarterback Patrick Mahomes. 

The AFC West franchise has reportedly acquired wide receiver Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants. 

All the Chiefs have to give up to get him is a third-round compensatory pick and 2023 sixth-round pick. 

A fresh start for Toney, some draft capital for the Giants and a new weapon for Mahomes and the Chiefs. All-in-all, a trade that makes sense for all parties involved. 

"The #Giants are trading WR Kadarius Toney to the #Chiefs for a third-round compensatory pick and 2023 sixth-round pick, as @Schultz_Report said," said Tom Pelissero.

The Chiefs are using one of the two third-round compensatory picks they received for losing Ryan Poles to the Bears' GM job to acquire Toney. 

"The #Chiefs got two third-round compensatory picks for losing Ryan Poles to the #Bears GM job. They turn one of them (plus a sixth-rounder) into former first-round pick Kadarius Toney, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury but is getting close to a return," Pelissero adds.

A big move by the Chiefs who clearly see potential in Kadarius Toney. Last season the former Florida star caught 39 passes for 420 yards in his rookie year. 

Toney is expected to make his Chiefs debut on Nov. 6 against the Titans.
