Kansas City Chiefs ‘keeping eye on’ shock free agent move for Super Bowl winner to increase Patrick Mahomes targets

THE Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly shown interest in a free agent to help superstar Patrick Mahomes.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has a chance of bringing along a veteran player who’s recently been released.

Two-time Super Bowl champion and MVP Mahomes has led the Chiefs to an 8-3 record.

They’ve gotten plenty of contributions from star tight end Travis Kelce, who has 70 receptions for 732 yards.



Noah Gray, Kansas City’s backup tight end, has done well with 21 catches for 244 yards and a touchdown.

However, the Chiefs entered Week 13 averaging 2.7 drops per game, the most in the NFL.

The Arizona Cardinals granted 33-year-old three-time Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz’s release last week.

He had missed several weeks with a quad strain injury.

It was revealed by the now-retired J.J. Watt that Ertz was interested in signing with a contending team with aspirations of winning his second Super Bowl title.

On Sunday, Fox Sports national writer Peter Schrager reported that the Chiefs are a team to “keep an eye” on in terms of a suitor for Ertz.

Schrager also listed the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens as options for Ertz, but that the Chiefs have interest in any pass-catcher that’s available for their playoff run.

Ertz has a chance of reuniting with the Eagles, the team he played for from 2013-21.

He made the Pro Bowl three straight seasons in 2017-19 and won a Super Bowl with the team during that span.

Philadelphia traded Ertz mid-season to the Cardinals in 2021.

In seven games, he recorded 27 receptions and 187 yards and one touchdown.

The Chiefs will play the 5-6 Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football in the historic Lambeau Field.
