Andy Reid: Chiefs Have Talked To Teams About Trading The No. 1 Pick

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Stay tuned!

    Move the pick!! Move the pick!!

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Excellent. Keep talking and get the best deal possible.

  • ArrowFan

    If they don’t trade then they must take Geno. Personally as long as a trade meant that the Faiders don’t get Geno I will be ok.

    • Michael Shaw

      No, they must take the best player available and that isn’t Geno.

      • ArrowFan

        If Geno is worth trading up to pick at #1 then I would say he is the BPA.

  • steve james

    Man I can’t help but be a little bit sad at the year we get the #1 pick. I am sure they will get as much as they can from the pick be it a player or a trade but dang.

    • Michael Shaw

      Yeah, I wish we had done good this year and sucked next year enough to get this pick because then we could land Johnny football!

      • superman_25_58

        No1 said that we can’t trade up next year for the QB they like.

  • redchiefs

    I’m hearing Andy Reid say Geno Smith is worth more than merely swapping 1st round picks, in fact, it sounds like Andy Reid might be looking for swapping 1s, a 2nd and a 1 next year? I just hope we make sure the Raiders don’t get him. I know it’s been awful quiet from the black hole.

    • Michael Shaw

      Of course they are quite. They have NO cap room. To many dumb decisions by the late Crypt Keeper!!!

      • redchiefs

        I was glad for ole Al’s decisions sometimes. I would scratch my head and wonder why he was so obsessed like that, rather than solidify definite weaknesses he’d go for the next big star. Still though, the rookie pay scale makes me concerned they might flat out release Carson Palmer and draft Geno Smith, or some other Ghost of Al move.

        • toperspective

          I’m sorry he’s gone. They might get there act together.

    • toperspective

      If we could get the Raiders pick next year, which could end up being a number 1, I’d happily let him have Geno. We’ll take Clowney.

        If this was a for sure thing, Id agree with you! BUT how much would it suck to see Geno throwing TDs against us for the next 10 years if he becomes a franchise qb for the raiders…lets not trade him to the raiders

  • chiefcottonmouth

    If a crap team like the raiders get Geno, they will break him. They’ll force a starting role on him and he will be wildly mediocre at best…. Then the raiders will be happy they killed young qb with some upside, they’ll go 2 and 14. And we could have our second round pick and the raiders 1st next year. Soo all said and done we kill the raiders and flourish at the same time. Give Reid some cake.. And let him eat it too!

    • cyberry

      I just can’t see how(I’m NOT saying they won’t), the raiders can afford to take a QB..with all the defensive players they have lost.. especially with Pryor on the roster..

  • ArrowFan

    I would gladly swap with Jacksonville for their 2nd:)

    • toperspective

      That would work but could they do even better?

    Nice to see Reid packed something besides his Hawaii flowered shirts.
