The Kansas City Chiefs got the top receiver in free agency in Sammy Watkins to give them a dynamic pairing with Tyreek Hill. They’re not done yet. The Chiefs are bringing in free agent receiver Kendall Wright, according to Adam Caplan.

Wright was a star at Baylor before the Titans made him a first round pick in the 2012 draft. He’s had one 1,000-yard season in his career. He does fit the Brett Veach mold of a former high pick who hasn’t necessarily lived up to expectations but not the age part — Wright is 28 years old.
