There is two quality players at the Wide reciever position still available via free agency.One being Emmanuel Sanders and the other being Steve Smith. Sanders is 26 years old and has been in the league 4 years. The first couple years his numbers were less than desirable, however in 2012 they improved and in 2013 he put up a respectable 67 REC, 740 Yrds, 11.0 average with 6 touchdowns. He had Big Ben throwing to him all 4 years. On the other hand we have Steve Smith. He has been in the league 14 yrs. Of those 14 yrs has only had three seasons that resulted in less yrds than Sanders best year. One was his rookie year, one he was injured in the first game of the season and the other he only played 13 games. Besides the mentioned seasons his yrds per season range from 1,563 to last years numbers which were 64 Rec, 745 Yrds, 11.6 avg and 4 touchdowns. Almost identical to Sanders. Smith had Cam Newton throwing him the ball, which I'm not sure is a good thing or not. He also has been through numerous QB's with the Panthers and seemed to keep his numbers up. The plus of Sanders is his youth and the possible potential to continue to improve. If we are looking for a long term solution he may be the answer but at a harder hit to our salary cap.On the other side we have Smith and although he has age knocking at his door, I believe has a couple good years left in him. He brings an attitude with him, that I like. He does his talking on the field with his play. His veteran leadership and meaness would be a plus to the Chiefs. If we are looking for a long term player there is little debate that I would tale Sanders over Smith. Still his numbers are not quite as good as many would think when comparing them to Smiths. If however we are looking for a player for just a couple years Smith could be a solid option. It would give the Chiefs time to evaluate the new recievers and Jenkins time to either prove himself or go home. No one knows for sure what the front office has in mind so I am asking for your thought on these two wide recievers.
