Kansas City Chiefs' receiver Tyreek Hill is facing a lengthy suspension or indefinite ban from the NFL now that disturbing audio from a conversation with his fiancee has leaked. He's already been suspended by the Chiefs, and more discipline is sure to come.

It appears unlikely that Hill will be able play this season, but with the Chiefs in win-now mode, here are three free agents they could sign to replace him.

1. Jermaine Kearse

Jermaine Kearse is nowhere near the explosive player that Hill is, but he has value as a downfield threat. Kearse is remarkably fast, as he ran a 4.43 40-yard dash, and he's had a touchdown of 50 yards or more in three of the past five seasons. The former New York Jet only tallied 371 yards last season, but with Patrick Mahomes throwing to him, that number should increase.

2. Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant and Hill couldn't be more different as players, but there isn't much top-flight talent left in free agency right now. Bryant still has the size and skills to be a dangerous threat in the red zone, but he's unlikely to replicate Hill's downfield production. Pairing Bryant with Travis Kelce could give the Chiefs an even more dynamic red-zone offense.

3. Michael Crabtree

Michael Crabtree is best suited as a possession receiver and red-zone threat. The Chiefs' receivers struggled to move the chains on third down against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, and that's where Crabtree excels. Signing Crabtree could give the Chiefs a reliable threat on third down who can extend drives, keeping Mahomes on the field.
