It looks like the Kansas City Chiefs are planning to upgrade their wide receiving unit.

In addition to an upcoming meeting with Minnesota wide receiver Eric Decker, members of the Chiefs will meet with Ohio wideout Taylor Price in Columbus, OH on Friday, per a league source.

The 6’0”, 204-pound Price caught 56 passes for 784 yards and five touchdowns for the 9-5 Bobcats in 2009. The senior wideout also ran an impressive 4.42 40-yard-dash at the combine in February.

Selecting a wide receiver at some point during the draft is a fairly obvious move for the Chiefs, who ranked 25th in passing offense (182.6 yds/gm) and 23rd in scoring (18.4 pts/gm) in 2009.

In addition, Kansas City didn’t have a single receiver who caught more than 47 passes last season.

Price—a polished route-runner with a quick first step—caught one pass for eight yards in January’s Senior Bowl.
