There is a report that the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are discussing a trade involving kick returner De’Anthony Thomas.

If you are ready for the start of a crazy day, you have come to the right place. There is a report out there that the 49ers are trying to acquire wide receiver/returner De’Anthony Thomas from the Chiefs, according to John Middlekauff.

Thomas’ story is very intriguing. He was knocked out of a Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers with a concussion and despite being medically cleared to come back to action in December, he never did. There was plenty of speculation as to what took place, but the general idea is that Thomas didn’t feel he was ready, and the team thought he was.

Thomas was drafted by Kansas City in 2014 with a fourth-round pick, but it is unlikely that general manager John Dorsey could get that kind of return for a player who has not been much more than a special teams threat. The 49ers and Chiefs have prior experience in making trades with these two regimes. San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke sent A.J. Jenkins to the Chiefs for Jonathan Baldwin in 2013.
