The Kansas City Chiefs' wide receiver room will look awfully different next season, that's for sure.

Last week, the Chiefs shocked the NFL world by sending Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins for a plethora of draft picks. Shortly after that trade was finalized, they signed Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a three-year deal.

Before all this madness involving Hill unfolded, the Chiefs signed former Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to a one-year contract. He's hoping to rebuild his value in Kansas City.

Although the additions of Smith-Schuster and Valdes-Scantling should really help out the Chiefs' passing game, ESPN's Dianna Russini said the reigning AFC West champions are "actively making phone calls" to see if they can add another top wide receiver to their depth chart.

It's unclear which wide receivers are available for trade at this time.

In the event Kansas City can't land a wide receiver via trade, the front office could use one of its first-round picks on a prospect like Treylon Burks or Jahan Dotson.

Regardless, the Chiefs will have options when it comes to upgrading their receiving corps.
