The Kansas City Chiefs will be tasked with addressing their wide receiver corps once again in free agency after seeing JuJu Smith-Schuster depart for the New England Patriots. Luckily, there are still plenty of intriguing options left on the market.

In fact, KC has been linked to one of the biggest names available following Smith-Schuster's exit.

Odell Beckham Jr. Rumors

Jordan Schultz of theScore reports the Chiefs are among the teams "showing interest" in Odell Beckham Jr. They join the likes of the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys as possible OBJ suitors.

This is far from the first time Kansas City has been connected to Beckham, and the pairing still makes obvious sense. The Chiefs could provide the three-time Pro Bowler with the perfect environment for a major comeback after his most recent ACL tear. OBJ could also slot in as the team's top WR after Smith-Schuster had success in that same role this past season.

Being able to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes -- fresh off of a second MVP and Super Bowl win -- and play for a perennial contender should be too hard to pass up. However, Beckham appears set on earning a lucrative, multi-year deal, which will undoubtedly affect where he lands.
