KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- Could the key to fixing the Kansas City Chiefs' defense be in the Pacific Northwest?

Despite a 3-0 start, concerns linger for the team due its defense that's allowed 92 points in three games, the second most allowed among all AFC teams.

That's perhaps why the Chiefs are considered a landing spot for Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, who is in the final year of his contract.

ESPN reported Sunday the Chiefs "are interested to some degree in trading for Thomas."

He held out during training camp and has missed multiple days of practice this season due to "personal reasons." 

Thomas was a key part of Seattle's signature "Legion of Boom" secondary. 

In his career for the Seahawks, he has 28 interceptions and 11 forced fumbles.

He's a six-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro, helping the Seahawks win the Super Bowl and appear in a second one.

The Chiefs have not confirmed ESPN's reporting.
