Kansas City Chiefs trade targets: 6 cornerbacks worth considering
This one is starting to creep into the minds of teams that really need a cornerback. Why? Because it’s starting to look like the Detroit Lions are in for another rough season with Matt Patricia at the helm.
After shockingly beating the Patriots last season, the Lions finished with only 6 wins and 10 losses and finished last in their division. There’s not much in terms of positive vibes floating around the locker room in Detroit.
It doesn’t look to be getting any better this season. After thoroughly dominating the Arizona Cardinals in the first three quarters of Sunday’s game, likely the result of poor play calling by the aforementioned Kingsbury and a rookie quarterback in his first game, the Lions all but rolled over for the Cardinals at the end of the game.
I’m not sure ending in a tie was any less embarrassing than losing that game would have been. Either way, it was a terrible look and if things don’t improve Patricia could find himself looking for a job at the end of the season. Why does this matter?
It matters because teams that aren’t contending for anything are usually planning for the next season midway through the current season. It looks like there’s a very good chance that could happen with the Lions.
Darius Slay is a two-time Pro Bowler and one-time All Pro with great size to play on the outside. If the Lions are willing to deal around the trade deadline, there’s several reasons why the Chiefs should take a strong look at trading for Slay.
Items to Note:
- Current Contract – Second Contract
- Years left until free agency – Two years
- Cap Hit this/next season – $15.9 million/$13.4 million
