NFL Trade Deadline: Will the Chiefs be players?

Tomorrow, Nov. 3, the NFL will put a cap on all trading for the 2015 season.  As with most years, it is highly unlikely that there will be many teams making moves.  While that is frustrating for many fans every year, it makes a lot of sense considering it is almost impossible to be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs in Week 8 of the season.  So most teams aren’t ready to move on from anyone just yet.  And with only 11 teams even having winning records right now, there is almost no team in the league that is even realistically out of contention.  That means almost nobody will be willing to part with their players just yet.

However, there are always a few teams that are able to appreciate where they stand.  Those teams are willing to part with talent in order to grab draft picks to rebuild, or vice versa in order to grab a player that might help them get over the hump.

Where do the Chiefs fall in that line?  Well, it’s actually hard to say.  At 3-5, it makes sense to say they’re out of it.  But, here’s the thing…they’re only 2 games out of the Wild Card spots, the second of which is held by a team Kansas City two contests against, the Raiders.  So, realistically, the Chiefs could go either way.  They could sell off some talent for draft picks or they could look to make a move on trying to get back into the playoff picture.  Either way, given John Dorsey’s history, it would be foolish to count KC out of the trade market right now.
