In 2022, the Chiefs are seen as the best fit for a ‘Top 10’ free-agent safety.
The Kansas City Chiefs are first in the AFC West and fourth in the conference, putting them back in contention for another Super Bowl appearance.
After a three-game winning streak for KC and a few unexpected losses from the competition, things have changed drastically.
Regardless of what happens down the stretch, it never hurts to look ahead to 2022.
Next offseason, this roster will have some holes to fill, and one area of need on the defensive side stands out: the safety position.

Marcus Maye is rumored to be on his way to Kansas City.
The Chiefs may be looking to add an experienced safety with Tyrann Mathieu set to hit free agency and the combination of Juan Thornhill and Daniel Sorensen struggling for the better part of 2021.
Marcus Maye was mentioned in a Bleacher Report article on November 8 as a player who needed a change of scenery.
Marcus Maye of the New York Jets is out with a torn Achilles tendon and may not be ready to play until the 2022 season.
When he finally returns to the game, he must do so outside of New York.
The 28-year-old has made the right public statements, implying that he would be content to stay a Jet.
Maye, on the other hand, was unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract during the offseason, resulting in the franchise tag.
Maye “would welcome” a trade to a contender, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, and “felt undervalued” by the Jets last month… On the field, he was fantastic in 2020.
He had 88 tackles, two interceptions, two sacks, and a passer rating of 80.4 for the opposition.
Maye has allowed an opposing passer rating of 97.1 while playing for one of the league’s worst defenses (last in yards and points allowed per game).
A team like Kansas City could provide Maye with the ideal opportunity to bounce back and win a championship while he is still young.
In March, Maye will be 29.
The Chiefs have a big need at safety, where Daniel Sorensen has given up a passer rating of 158.3 to opposing quarterbacks.
The Chiefs could be interested in him because of his recent injury and pending charges stemming from a February DUI arrest.
