How the Chiefs could line up for the 2022 season

A second-half collapse at home in the AFC Championship Game overtime loss to Cincinnati led to more pain in the offseason for the Kansas City Chiefs, at least for the fans. Superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill was traded to Miami for a package of five draft picks, a move that made sense from a team-building and financial standpoint but simultaneously opens up a rather large hole in the offense. But as long as Andy Reid is calling the shots and Patrick Mahomes stays healthy, this offense should be just fine. And the defense got some much-needed reinforcements through the draft and in free agency, especially in the secondary. So to clear up any confusion, this is not a rebuild. It's still Super Bowl-or-bust for the Chiefs.
