    Default ESPN reporting Thigpen to Jacksonville

    I just read on another board that ESPN is reporting that the Chiefs are shopping Thigpen for a third round pick and Jacksonville is offering a 5th round pick

    http://forums.delphiforums.com/kcchi...es/?msg=2217.1

    Anyone else know anything?

    Lots of people are ready to trade Thigpen for a 4th round pick, so I thought it would be interesting to see how many of our 4th rounds picks have turned out to be decent. I would much rather get a starting offensive lineman than a 4th round pick.

    Chiefs former 4th round picks:
    2009: Donald Washington
    2008: Will Franklin
    2005: Craphonso Thorpe
    2004: Samie Parker, Jared Allen
    2003: Brett Williams
    2002: Omar Easy
    2001: Monty Beisel, George Layne
    2000: Frank Moreau
    1999: Larry Parker
    1998: Greg Favors
    1997: Pat Barnes
    1996: Donnie Edwards
    1995: Steve Stenstrom
    1994: Bracey Walker
    1993: Jaime Fields
    1992: Mike Evans
    1990: Fred Jones

    Out of those 19 picks, only 2 turned out to be good long-term players(Edwards and Allen). If they trade Thigpen, I would much prefer it to be for a starting offensive lineman.

    There isn't a GM out there dumb enough to trade a starting OL for Thigpen.

    And just because CP made lousy 4th round picks doesn't mean every Chiefs GM will. I mean, it's a little early to be judging the Washington pick, ya think.

    Subtract the Wahington pick, the result is the same. 4th round picks aren't a gimme pick. They are a crap shoot at best, regardless of the GM. I would rather have a proven commodity, preferably an o-lineman(our biggest team need), in exchange for what I consider to be a proven backup QB.

    Thigpen is a QB with a lot of virtues. He's tough and can scramble. He's a good backup who could be an adequate starter for a lot of teams. Not his one, though.

    Anyone thinking that Thigpen has the physical skills or football smarts to lead a team to this playoffs didn't watch enough Chiefs games last season.
    Not very many of us wanted that trade. I believe some of us said it was JA wanting out of KC and his negative attitude towards being franchised that led to that trade.

    I have mixed feelings on this. On the one hand I have no faith in Croyle should Cassel get hurt. At least Thigpen was durable and he could make a few plays. Also, last year was the first starting time Thigpen has had, he was basically a rookie out there and did pretty well. He will probably only get better.

    On the other hand if we could get a third for him then that would be great to continue building the team with. Also with Cassels big dollar contract he will never get a chance to start here (unless it's because of injury)and I could definately see him starting elsewhere in the future. So it could be good for him as well as the Chiefs.
    If he gets traded then I wish him luck. I can definately see him getting better and starting somewhere.

    See the difference?

    i wouldn't mind trading for something. Don't forget IF cassel happens to get hurt there is still a chance Croyle would stay healthy...and IF our QBs got hurt wouldn't that mean we should stock up on linemen??

    I love Thigpen, but if he could land us a draft pick that ends up being a starting offensive lineman for the next 5 or 10 years, there's no doubt in my mind that he should be traded.
