With Maclin out, Chiefs look to fill new wide receiver roles

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Two weeks ago, the Kansas City Chiefs seemed to know not only who their wide receivers would be this season but also each of their neatly defined roles.

Jeremy Maclin was the No. 1, the veteran with good hands capable of stretching the field. Chris Conley was the athletic, emerging talent ready to take the next step. Tyreek Hill was the speedy slot man whose debut season was dynamite. And a group that included Albert Wilson, Demarcus Robinson and rookie Jehu Chesson would fill in the gaps, providing the Chiefs some much-needed depth.

Then came word that Maclin had been released in a money-saving maneuver.
