...so they couldn't just trade down for a LT or trade for one or sign one in free agency the following years? And did you say a deep playoff run?!?! People would love that
If you're going to sign one of the top FA LT's next year, why not just give Albert the money THIS year? That scenario makes no sense. Do you have any idea what it would take for a team slotted in the 25-32 range to try and trade up into the top 10 to take one of the elite LT prospect in this year's draft? They'd have to trade their entire draft and probably part of next year's draft just to make the points come close. You're not going to be able to get an elite LT next season if the Chiefs make a deep run.
