Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told the media yesterday that a couple of teams have reached out this team about trading for the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
“We’re going to keep all the options open,” said Reid. “I said this when we had the second pick and I was sitting at this meeting and Mike Ditka traded me his whole draft. We’re going to keep it wide open.”
I will just go on the record as saying now that if any team wants to trade the Chiefs their entire draft, I will personally travel across town to Radio City Music Hall and pick up said team’s draft pick and deliver him to their facility in person, on my own dime.
Anyway, Reid was then asked if KC had received any call about the No. 1 pick.
“Yeah, there have been people that have talked,” said Reid.
When asked specifically how many teams had reached out, Reid said “There have been a couple.”
I am sure the initial conversations about the pick center around how willing the Chiefs are to move it and what they’d like to get in return from each team. This is a fluid situation so it may take some time for a deal to be made, if a deal is made at all.
Still, if a team falls in love with a player like the football team in Washington fell in love with Robert Griffin III last year and offers up a deal the Chiefs can’t refuse, the pick could be moved before the draft.
