tony gonzalez would be an upgrade at tight end, as would hakeem nicks/arron gordon at wide receiver...i think they could use a big back to share some of the load with charles, and maybe convert some of the 3rd and shorts that seem to trouble them now
They drafted Knile Davis to be the big back. So far, he has been a disappointment. He may just need more time but RBs usually either have it or don't. They need less development time than any other position. Charles has been amazingly durable for his size. Still, a good change up banger would be good.
They do need help at TE although Fasano is healthy again and he does get open. Doubt Atl trades Gonzalez though he would be awesome in Reid's offense.
I am less impressed with Nicks the more I see him. If I were KC, I would offer a conditional 5th round pick.
Bowe is a stud. Avery has played better this season than any other time in his career. McCluster is flashy once he catches the ball but does not run good patterns.
Like most teams in their position, they would love to have some insurance as long as it does not cost a great deal for the future. If they stay healthy, they will be pretty strong. No need to mortgage the future for a little short-term insurance. They are still a pretty young team. Their future is still ahead of them.
