EXCELLENT: Green Bay Packers Replacement…

 Kansas City Chiefs, free agent Andre Dillard ultimately opted to sign with the Green Bay Packers.

The Green Bay Packers recently signed free agent offensive tackle Andre Dillard, as reported by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on April 18. This development is noteworthy for the Kansas City Chiefs, as Fowler also mentioned that the Chiefs had recently brought Dillard in for a free agent visit.

It remains unclear whether the Chiefs made Dillard an offer or if he left without a contract. Additionally, the terms of Dillard’s deal with Green Bay have not been disclosed. Nonetheless, this represents a missed opportunity for the Chiefs to address their need for a starting left tackle through free agency.

Dillard, a first-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019, has not lived up to expectations as a franchise left tackle. Despite his potential, he struggled to secure a starting role during his time in Philadelphia and faced challenges with performance and injuries. After an underwhelming stint with the Eagles and a disappointing season with the Tennessee Titans, Dillard was released by the Titans in March.

In the absence of a free agent solution, the Chiefs may turn to the upcoming NFL Draft to address their offensive tackle needs. Although the draft class may not be deep, there are top-tier prospects available. If the Chiefs fail to secure a left tackle in the draft, they may explore veteran options in free agency, with players like Donovan Smith, David Bakhtiari, and Duane Brown still available.

The 2024 NFL Draft is scheduled to take place from April 25 to April 27 in Detroit, Michigan, and will be broadcasted on ESPN, ABC, and NFL Network. This event presents a crucial opportunity for teams like the Chiefs to bolster their roster and address key positions, including the left tackle position.
