I like the Luke idea but I also like the idea of us trading down a few spots and getting E. Fisher or L.Johnson too. Getting back that 2nd round pick would be huge.
Heard this morning that Miami was interest in giving up one of their two second round picks for him. I am guessing by the fact that he signed his Tender so soon, that a deal is already in the works. He has to sign his tender before they can trade him. If that is not the case, then why did he sign it already. He is not required to sign it until the regular season starts.
God I hop we can trade out of that salary and regain a 2nd rounder. Hoping that story is true!!
I suspect the team told B. Albert that if he wants a trade, he needs to sign his tender, otherwise you are stuck here. Also, if a trade is going to happen, it is going to be in the next couple of days. All the owners (and a lot of GMs and HCs) are doing their annual competition committee meetings right now. It is a perfect environment for deals to be made.
Another possible scenario on draft day. Suppose the Jags do decide they want Geno Smith, but they are afraid the Chiefs might trade with Philly at #4 because of Philly's interest in Geno Smith, then it creates the possibility of a trade with the Jags to flip-flop positions at #1 and #2. If the Jags were to offer a 3rd rounder for that, being this year or in 2014, the Chiefs should take it ( no, I don't believe the Jags will surrender a 2nd rounder ).
Another scenario, that's been discussed, and although it seems unlikely now with Alex Smith and Chase Daniels, is the Chiefs and Eagles swap positions for Nick Foles. The problem I have with this is the Oakland Raiders sitting at #3 are in a full trade down mode and Detoit, although they seldom ever trade up, could jump ahead of the Chiefs and take either Joeckel or Fisher ( Detroit needs O-Line help bad with Backus retiring and Cherilus having fled to Indy ), but then again there is Lane Johnson, who has played RT and LT and maybe the Chiefs brass thinks highly enough of him to trade down and settle for him. Of course this depends on the Branden Albert situation, as well.
