The rich get richer. Of course, that depends on what you feel about the play of Jaylon Smith, I suppose. But the Super Bowl champions could be looking to beef up their linebacker corps this summer. And they’ve found success adding linebackers drafted by the Cowboys like Anthony Hitchens and Damien Wilson.

Smith would likely love to land in Kansas City, potentially coming off their second-straight Super Bowl win. And despite his injury history and declining play, the former second-rounder could revive his career with the Chiefs.

As for Smith’s injury history, he has yet to miss a single game for the Cowboys over the past three seasons. Coming off his first Pro Bowl bid last year, the Chiefs would likely welcome him with open arms. Smith would likely do the same for a chance to win a championship on a team set up to compete at the highest level for years to come.

Like DeMarcus Ware before him, Jaylon Smith could leave Dallas and find himself in a perfect situation to cement his legacy with a Lombardi Trophy or two. And with the Chiefs’ primary starters being Hitchens and Wilson, the latter scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, it’s not hard to imagine Smith stepping in and instantly upgrading that unit on day one.
