What Were the Bills Thinking Handing Worthy to the Chiefs?

In the aftermath of the first-round trade that resulted in the Kansas City Chiefs adding Texas Wideout Xavier Worthy on Tuesday night, I can’t fathom why the Buffalo Bills handed their arch-rival one of the top players in the NFL Draft.

Buffalo Bills General Manager Brandon Beane, who might be in the last year of his tenure in Orchard Park, told reporters after the first round that he felt Worthy would be available at pick 32, so getting a free draft pick from the Chiefs made sense for their football team.

The Bills can justify their decision, but I doubt the Bills Mafia is thrilled about helping Kansas City. Granted, the Bills traded the pick they got from the Chiefs for more draft capital and now own the first pick of the second round, so they can undoubtedly get a top-notch wide receiver. So that means they’ll likely go defense or trade the pick.

Well, even though this was a dumb move by the Bills, it was a great move by the Chiefs. In the wake of this trade, Kansas City still has a second-round pick and will likely address the offensive line or draft another skilled wide receiver for Patrick Mahomes.

The Chiefs felt differently about whether Worthy than the Bills. Yes, the kid has a few knocks (mostly his size), but Worthy, who will turn 21 on Saturday, is a well-rounded wide receiver. He’s not just speed; he’s a far more accomplished route runner with god-given speed than Tyreek Hill in his rookie season.

Andy Reid has to be ecstatic over the addition of Worthy and the new wrinkles to the offense he can create for his football team. Last year, we saw Mahomes and company struggle, but they found their groove with the talent they had on the roster to win another Super Bowl.

With the addition of Tight End Irv Smith, Jr., Hollywood Brown via free agency, and now Worthy through the draft, the weakness 2023 is not the weakness of 2024. 

Granted, all three roster additions must mesh and become a cohesive unit with the other offensive players, but with Worthy being the cherry on top of the offense, the rest of the AFC has to be terrified about what’s next in Kansas City if KC’s offense scores thirty plus points per game.

What will the AFC do now if it doesn’t get the Chiefs last year when they were vulnerable? Kansas City is still lightyears ahead of its AFC competition because it’s still trying to figure out how to dethrone the champs.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs have already figured out how to defeat every one of them.  Last year, the Bills had the Chiefs at home in the playoffs, but that didn’t work. The Ravens were in the same spot at home for the AFC Championship game, but they laid another playoff egg. The Bengals, probably the best team on the Chiefs path to a three-peat, are an internal mess with players wanting to defect.

I hope Chiefs fans understand the heights in which this franchise operates from top to bottom. They have stability in the front office and stability in the coaching staff. Further, their 53-man roster is balanced with superstars, playmakers, and glue guys.

That’s not easy to accomplish in the NFL, and perhaps that’s why the Bills made this trade. After all, they are armed with ten draft picks on Friday and Saturday, and if they hit them right, perhaps in two years, they can be good again.

If not, sweeping changes are headed to Buffalo.

Then again, as a Chiefs fan, I could care less what the Bills do; I’m just glad when the phone rings and Veach calls on their services again, they put up the white flag and give them another roster shaker for their football team.
