Chiefs Working Out Sharrif Floyd, Matt Elam

Earlier we told you that the Kansas City Chiefs were down in Florida working out standout DT Sharrif Floyd and now we can also confirm that KC is taking a look at safety Matt Elam.

Elam is an interesting prospect. He is projected as a late first, early second-round draft pick, though I am sure he is trying to work his way into the mid-first round. Elam could probably play both safety positions, which would make him an interesting addition to the Chiefs. I’ve long wondered if Eric Berry might be a better fit at FS and wouldn’t be surprised to see a guy like Elam take over at SS.

At this point, the Chiefs need some extra insurance and competition for Kendrick Lewis. Lewis, who was drafted in the fifth-round by former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli, has some injury concerns.

To get Elam, KC would probably need to find a way into the late first round or early second-round. To do that, they’d likely need to trade Branden Albert.

What do you think, Addicts? Would you trade Branden Albert for say, Luke Joeckel and Matt Elam?

    Stop referring to us picking Joeckel as part of an Albert trade, because we can get him either way. So it would be like trading Albert for Elam and maybe another FA OL. However, I am warming up to the idea of trading him I just think it is risky. I would rather keep Albert another year just to make sure he isn’t still needed.

    I would trade Albert for Elam and Joeckel and the cap space.
