The Kansas City Chiefs will face plenty of questions ahead of next season. Their defense will have to adapt without Tyreek Hill and their defense also took a massive hit with the loss of Tyann Mathieu.

They don't have that much cap space and bringing in new players in that situation is always tricky. But, then again, there are a couple of pieces that could make a big impact and are still out there in the market.

The Chiefs Need To Improve Their Pass-Rush

That's why Fansided's Michael Johnson believes they should make a run at former Bucs star Ndamukong Suh, especially considering the fact they play in arguably the toughest division in all of football:

"Ndamukong Suh only signs with contenders and the Chiefs need to figure out a way to get better at rushing the quarterback," Johnson wrote. "After all, they’ll play Russel Wilson, Derek Carr, and Justin Herbert twice a year. Having a player who can push the pocket from the inside would benefit them greatly."

Suh's Versatility Is What They Need

Suh's best years are behind him but he's still a versatile pass-rusher who can adapt to multiple systems and defensive schemes:

"Suh is perfect for a team desperate for an interior pass rusher," Johnson explained. "Over the last few seasons, he’s also played on the edge in a 3-4 defense with the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers."

While he's not getting younger, he could be a cheap pickup who'd instantly make their defense better, as they're not exactly stacked at that position:

"Admittedly, he isn’t the same All-Pro tackle," Johnson added. "However, he can still split gaps and win with a good first step and savviness. He’ll be the second-best pass rusher on the Chiefs roster. Last season he finished with six sacks for the second year in a row as a Buccaneer. Suh will fit right into the Chiefs defense, which has Frank Clark and rookie George Karlaftis as their edge rushers."

As we mentioned before, losing both Mathieu and Hill will certainly leave its toll on the team. But they still have one of the best quarterbacks in the game and two offensive masterminds leading the way in Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy.

Still, they're just not in a position to leave anything to chance, especially in that division. So, they should definitely look to get better and make a couple of moves before the start of the season.
