    Default TRADE! TRADE! TRADE! Building for the Future


    0 Not allowed!
    It has been thirteen long seasons since the Kansas City Chiefs and fans have witnessed a playoff win.

    Also, in the the past twenty NFL drafts, the Chiefs average selection in the first round has been an "average middle of the road" pick #15. Three of those twenty drafts were without a first round selection.

    Respectable and average are getting rather old.

    It just might be time to try a different appoach towards the draft. Submitted for your thinking is a somewhat "out of the box" attempt to change the face of this organization:

    #1 TRADE: RB Larry Johnson to the Buffalo Bills for the following picks:
    2/43, 3/74, 3/92 and a 2008 3rd round pick.

    #2 TRADE: Pick #1/23 to San Francisco for the following picks:
    3/76, 4/104, 4/110, 4/124 and a 2008 2nd round pick.

    #3 TRADE: Pick #2/43 (Buffalo) to Washington for the following pick:
    2008 1st round pick.

    #4 TRADE: Pick #2/54 to Houston for the following pick:
    2008 1st round pick.

    Not that it is a bad thing; your posts are usually a pretty good read. :)

    Thank you for pointing this out. Consideration should also be given to the cap savings the Chiefs will see with not needing to sign LJ to $80 million contract. Oh, and these moves won't bring a smile to Chiefs fans' faces next draft day?

    Take the 2007 draft picks and team them with next year's and fill the holes.

    From a head coaches stanpoint, this would be a bad idea. From a team presidents stanpoint, maybe you allow your head coach an extra season, for evaluation and try this kind of scenario.

    It's always fun, to hear somone elses ideas, about handling the franchise. However, we would be the "laughing-stock" of the NFL, if we fail to recieve a first-round pick, (plus) for L.J. Too bad, though, that we don't have this kind of creativity, in the front office.

    Hee, Hee, nineteen years ago I couldn't spell general manager, now I are one, now you expect me to spell cratedtivity? (grin)

    Well, for anyone who bothers to read my ramblings...it sure kind of looks as if there is some serious fire to this smoke. I won't "cloud" things up with much more than to say the breaking news is that the Chiefs have in fact been talking with six teams about a trade for LJ. The concern about trading LJ is that a team must be willing to sign him to a long term contract now. As for the low amount in return for LJ, this has a great deal to do with the direction the NFL is going regarding the RB position. Indy kind of helped move this along with their success after parting ways with E. James (Cardinals) and addressing their RB needs by using a rookie and RB by committee.

    Johnson will be traded if not before or during the draft certainly after the 2007 season. K.C. can and will place the Franchise tag on LJ (if it gets that far, doubt it) and simply shop him from day one of free agency 2008. My best guess is that a trade will happen after the first round and involve some 2007 draft picks but more so the 2008.

    Aside from Adrian Peterson there really isn't much in the way of quality at the RB position. Yes there are several backup types, but not much when it comes to game-backing runners. Once the teams have "missed out" on the runningbacks, they will be more open to trading for Johnson.
