The Kansas City Chiefs have the league's most explosive quarterback, and they look poised to be Super Bowl contenders as long as he's under center. That doesn't mean they don't have room to improve, though.

Unfortunately, currently sitting with the fifth-least cap space in the NFL, Kansas City doesn't have much flexibility to work with this offseason. So let's take a look at three low-cost free agents the team should target this offseason.

3. Linval Joseph

Linval Joseph was just released by the Minnesota Vikings, and he could be a nice low-risk gamble for the Chiefs. He still mustered 44 tackles and 6 tackles for loss (TFL), though, and has only missed a combined four games over the past four seasons. He's a durable, veteran option who could be willing to take a bit of a discount to join a legitimate contender like the Chiefs.

2. Danny Trevathan

The Chiefs need to bolster the run game on both sides of the ball. Defensively, the team finished as the league's fourth-worst run defense per Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics. Adding a solid, downhill linebacker makes a ton of sense, and Danny Trevathan shouldn't cost too much after he only played nine games in 2019.

1. Matt Breida

Matt Breida had an up-and-down season with the San Francisco 49ers, but that could drive down his price on the open market. If he's available at the right cost, he'd be a great addition to the KC backfield. He was seemingly benched at times due to fumbling issues, but he averaged at least 5.1 yards per carry in each of the past two seasons. The speedy back would be a great low-cost target for the Chiefs, who don't have much depth behind Damien Williams.
