There has been a lot of development in the trade market, particularly for quarterbacks. Reportedly both Dallas and Minnesota, in the wake of the Teddy Bridgewater injury, are calling teams. Aaron Murray has been said to be on the trade block. He offers a WCO QB with upside and he’s played well this preseason. He could surge behind a starting offensive line. Murray needs to play flawless football against Green Bay and show that he can run an offense with authority. It could land him a new career lifeline.
There are a pair of players that could also draw interest or be thrown into a trade as sweeteners. De’Anthony Thomas and Knile Davis offer experience and upside while not breaking the bank. RB depth seems to be a concern across the league right now.
Down to the Wire
While most of the roster is likely decided, there are always guys on the fence. Watch this group of players to see who may earn the last few spots on the Chiefs’ 53-man roster and why.
Bottom 3 WRs
With the Top trio of Chiefs receivers set in my opinion, its the other 3 slots that are being confirmed against The Packers. Rod Streater should be the first pass catcher off the bench in 2016. Tyreek Hill has grown in camp and seems to be solidly on the roster.
The 6th spot is the only real question. Has De’Anthony Thomas played well enough to stick around over 4th round pick DeMarcus Robinson? Robinson is likely the #6, but its not over till its over. Da’Ron Brown and Frankie Hammond could make a splash against Green Bay and give the staff something to think about.
