    From Adam Schefter of NFL.com:

    For Kansas City to trade Johnson, it would cost $8.8 million against its salary cap next season. For the Chiefs to keep Johnson, it would cost $8.2 million against the salary cap next season.
    So this is their choice trade a player who has said he wants out, or keep the player who could be a detriment in the locker room.
    Whoever is the new general manager for the Chiefs will have to weigh whether it is worth auctioning off Johnson to the highest bidder, hoping to get back, at best, a second-round pick and more likely a third-round pick and possibly some other late-round compensation.

    ********************************
    I gotta tell ya, if the Chiefs can get a 2nd and 4th, I'd be good with that. It'd be great if the Chiefs could get something comparable for TGonz if he still wants out. I'd be good with 3 2nd rounders and 3 4th rounders. Imagine how great things could get if we could trade down a few spots from the 3rd pick. We could be talking about at least 4 2nd round picks. That'd be freakin awesome!!

    This could be a true statement and it was all brought on by the fact that they have been unwilling to spend the money to put the needed players on the field to win in the last several years.

    I finally agree with you.

    And it isn't our inability to spend, per se. It's just that we only spend on bad or overhyped players. Herm/Carl gave out some terribly large contracts to Ty Law, Surtain, McIntosh, and Donnie Edwards.

    Yea while they passed on guys like Hutchinson and Faneca the last few years. Maybe the price tag would have been too high but didn't even invite them in to talk is what pisses me off!

    Hutchinson wasn't a FA per se - he was a restricted free agents whose contract wasn't matched by Seattle.

    I agree about Faneca - he was my #1 FA I wanted for the Chiefs.

    Well JM, we might get a second chance this year to take another good Steeler lineman in Marvel Smith. I dont think they looked at Faneca because he's 32, but then again Marvel is 29, so who knows. I think they might reach out more this offseason though. The only knock on Marvel is that he's been pretty dinged up lately. The only thing would stop us from getting Smith is A: he re-signs with Pitt or B: We draft a tackle, which would leave a hole at guard, which in the long run would mean that your want for Faneca was right all along.

    Yeah, Smith does not look like the same player this season, but it could be because of injuries this season. However, as a linemen he has at least 4-5 years left in him.

    Marvel would be pretty perfect along our line. I agree, his injuries might be a problem, but drafting him would allow us to put a good RT out there (either move him or Albert to RT) instead of a rookie. We would have then the luxury of McIntosh as a reserve, plus we could draft and groom someone in the late rounds.
