The Kansas City Chiefs have appeared in four straight AFC Championship games and head into the 2022 season considered a Super Bowl contender once again. Every NFL roster has holes, though. For the Chiefs, the problem that exists is a lack of depth in what has become a very thin secondary.

Addressing the cornerback position has to be a top priority for Kansas City, but only after they clear enough cap space to even consider signing someone. Once they get under the salary cap limit, the Chiefs should steal veteran ballhawk Kyle Fuller away from the divisional rival Denver Broncos.

Chiefs Free Agency

It's possible the Chiefs lose Charvarius Ward, Mike Hughes and Chris Lammons to the open market. All three players made a mark during the 2021 season and filling the gap isn't going to be easy. On the other hand, Kansas City did allow a whopping 251.5 passing yards per game in 2021 (No. 27 in NFL).

Fuller is coming off a down season (51 tackles & 4 pass breakups) and could be looking to join a contending team in hopes of winning a Lombardi Trophy. It's worth noting that the two-time Pro Bowler is only two seasons removed from posting 82 tackles, 12 pass breakups and 3 interceptions.

Reports claim Kansas City had interest in acquiring the 30-year-old at the 2021 NFL trade deadline, so it would make sense for the team to pursue him in the offseason as well. Fuller has the experience to play every snap on defense and the knowledge to mentor players on a young defense.

The Chiefs will look to keep a stranglehold of the AFC West division and could use Fuller's help to do just that. For now, Kansas City has odds set at +850 to win it all, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
