The New York Giants are expected to pursue Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson in free agency, Matt Lombardo of reports, citing a source close to the situation.

Robinson is coming off a Super Bowl-winning campaign with the Chiefs in which he put up career highs of 32 catches, 449 yards, and four touchdowns.

The four-year pro is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

The Philadelphia Eagles are also rumored to be interested in the 24-year-old's services, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Robinson was Kansas City's fourth-leading receiver during the 2019 season, with his high-water mark being a 172-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2. He had a quiet postseason, catching just three balls for 35 yards.

He would be a welcome addition for both the Giants' and Eagles' thin receiving corps. New York features Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate at the position, while Corey Coleman, Russell Shepard, and Cody Latimer are set to hit free agency. Meanwhile, Philadelphia felt the sting of a shallow pass-catching group when DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery missed much of the 2019 season due to injuries. Third option Nelson Agholor is also scheduled to become a free agent.

While Robinson could leave in free agency, Kansas City's third-leading wideout, Sammy Watkins, is a candidate to be released this offseason, as he's set to count for $21 million against the cap in 2020. Losing both Watkins and Robinson would be a blow to the team's pass-catching corps.
