A trade with the Cheifs that would make sense...

Postby ridethemattrain » Sun Apr 13, 2014 3:40 pm

The contract would need to be reworked, but i would do this in a heartbeat (for a second this year and third next, or vice-versa)!

Should Chiefs revamp safety corps?

Safety Eric Berry still has two years remaining on his contract with the Kansas City Chiefs and will carry a cap hit of $11.6 million this season and more than $8.3 million next year. Could shedding that cheddar off of the cap and adding a draft pick or two be good enough reason to trade him away before the draft?

"Let’s be clear. The Chiefs are not shopping Berry, and there is no indication they’ve been contacted about a trade. But the possibility is at least being kicked around in some football circles, and Chiefs GM John Dorsey would have to listen, if not actively pursue it," wrote Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star.

"Through conversations with NFL personnel men, Berry would likely bring back at least a second- and third-round pick — perhaps more. One scout thought a first-round pick would be possible.

"Those picks would help the Chiefs fill holes, including wide receiver, and there are some intriguing safety prospects in what is widely considered a very deep draft."

We've blown too much cap space to do this without reworking some deals, plus who knows if we are on good speaking terms with the Chiefs. I don't hate the idea, but I put the odds of it happening at around 1 in 10,000.

Eric Berry and William Moore are too similar to make such a trade worthwhile. Berry is the young version of Troy Polamalu…potentially.

We should have just signed Byrd if we were going to pay a 9M safety.
