Peter King had a note in his Monday Morning Quarterback column this morning that may net the Chiefs another draft pick or two for next year. In a section where he was discussing the possibility of the Chiefs having up to 11 draft picks next year because of compensatory selections from their lost free agents King notes the Chiefs could add some more by cutdown day at the end of the month.
Look for Kansas City GM John Dorsey to push one of his tight ends (the Giants need one) and a kicker (either reliable vet Ryan Succop or strong rookie Cairo Santos) for a low-round pick sometime before the final cutdown. He won’t get anything better than a sixth-, and probably just a seventh-, if he’s able to make a deal.
One would assume Travis Kelce would not be one of the tight ends available in a trade, and it would seem unlikely the Giants would trade for Demetrius Harris. So that would leave Anthony Fasano and Richard Gordon on the block. One would think Gordon would be the targeted player in a trade if Kings is saying a seventh round pick as compensation.
Trading one of Succop or Santos would also make a lot of sense for the Chiefs, too. Again, neither is going to bring a lot back in a trade but a pick is a pick. The more ammunition the Chiefs can acquire heading into next year’s draft the better, especially if one of those two is going to be cut anyway.
An interesting note here is neither Chase Daniel or Tyler Bray was mentioned as a potential trade piece. What does this mean for the Chiefs chances of keeping four quarterbacks to start the season?
