Andy Reid is an offensive genius. Seriously, this guy could probably line me up under center and figure out how to average 20 points in a game. He’s just that good.

Of course, he doesn’t have a middle-aged blogger playing quarterback but instead has one of the best ever in Patrick Mahomes and they’re 64-16 when working together. Even this season, after trading away Tyreek Hill, they somehow put up 5,250 passing yards and 41 touchdowns.

What they haven’t been able to do, is find a running back to bring their offense to the next level. They aimed to do this with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, a first-round pick in 2020, but he hasn’t been what they hoped for.

Isiah Pacheco ended up taking over this season and the seventh-round rookie had an impressive 830 yards on the ground and five touchdowns.

Having said that, this offense could be taken to another level should they add a player of Pollard’s caliber. While he’s not at the same level as LeSean McCoy, he has a lot of what made McCoy so dangerous for Reid while they were in Philadelphia together from 2009 through 2012.

Pollard on the same field as Mahomes and Travis Kelce, with Reid designing plays, would make this already dangerous offense nearly unstoppable. The Chiefs — much like everyone on this list including the Cowboys — would have to make some cap moves to afford Pollard, but it would be well worth it.
