3 potential free agent targets for Los Angeles Rams from Kansas City Chiefs in 2019
3. Jordan Lucas
The fact that Kansas City was able to acquire Jordan Lucas prior to the start of last season in exchange for future seventh-round draft pick in 2020 shows how the Chiefs had nothing to lose over giving the safety a chance.

By recording an interception while appearing in 16 games, Kansas City will most likely consider the possibility of giving Lucas another chance to prove his value in 2019, and the best part is they would be able to do so at a cheaper price compared to most safeties across the league.
Of course, the Chiefs could easily consider going in a different direction, and allow Lucas to test the open market for offers from other teams, one of which could end up being the Rams.
Since the Lamarcus Joyner experiment of potentially earning long-term deal after playing last year under the franchise tag seems like it didn’t work out, Los Angeles is one of those teams that will be making safety one of their top priorities this offseason, whether it’s free agency or the draft.
Clearly, Lucas isn’t the kind of defender who is going to make a serious impact as a starter, but since this would seem like a low risk with a potential for a high reward, why shouldn’t the Rams give this a shot?
