Chiefs 2019 Offseason Thread
So, the trade discussions about Patrick Peterson have died down since we heard about his looming suspension, but there's a couple weird trade rumors involving the Chiefs right now. Both of these sounds like a drunk friend playing GM on Madden at first glance, but there's still some twisted logic involved that sort of makes sense.

Rumor #1: Chiefs could trade LB Reggie Ragland to the Redskins for CB Josh Norman

https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2019/05/...ke-a-deal/

Chiefs want to dump Ragland because his skillset is supposedly a poor fit in the 4-3. Reuben Foster got hurt in a non-contact injury and possibly will be out for an extended time if not all year, so there is a need for the Redskins. Also, the Redskins want out of Josh Norman's contract. After June 1 the Skins could save $11.5M against the cap in a trade (or cut) and the Chiefs would effectively take on a 2 year, $24M contract with no guarantees. Norman will turn 32 near the end of the season.

Chiefs technically have the cap space to make this happen ($15M), and will get $8M more cap space post June 1 after Eric Berry's cut officially takes effect.

Rumor #2: Chiefs could trade for RB Le'Veon Bell

https://arrowheadaddict.com/2019/05/20/k...ey-or-not/

Adam Gase is now the GM / Coach, and he's made it pretty clear he never wanted to spend big money on Bell, though he is under contract for 4 years, $52.5M. You'd think that would make him untradeable, but in a post June 1 trade the Jets could ship off Bell for relatively good compensation, cost them only $1.5M more than they would otherwise pay him this year and be mostly out from his contract ($6M dead cap next year). To the team that traded for Bell they'd get him at a far cheaper price than as a FA, paying $3.5M this year, $13M in 2020, and is cuttable by 2021. Carlos Hyde would likely be a throw in on the trade. Bell is 27.

From a Jets perspective they'd turn money and cap space  into a draft pick or package of them. Jets, even after the Bell FA signing, have about $30M in cap space and could easily afford the modest hit.

Obviously I'm betting neither happen. Even if they did, it wouldn't happen for a couple weeks in both cases. Although I think Bell is a self-important dickhead he'd be the better get, so long as the compensation wasn't crazy. That being said, I think the Ragland for Norman trade is far more likely.
In today's edition of People are Awful, a distant relative of Tyrann Mathieu was arrested for attempting to extort him over false sexual misconduct allegations. Wow.

Honey Badger has already had a rough go of it in life.  People here root really fucking hard for that kid wherever he is because of that.

If we can flip ragland and a low round pick for norman it's a no brainer. If it takes significant draft capital I want no part. And I dont think there is any way that the jets are moving on from bell before he's played a snap for them. I know the money would be lower but if we wanted him we could have got him without spending draft picks on him so I'd rather not do that either.
Kansas City will get to host the 2023 NFL draft.

Naturally, this is awesome news for the city in that it means they'll get some straight cash for it, but also a good opportunity for locals to see it firsthand. Pretty cool.
By that time we'll be back to back to back Super Bowl Champions and everyone else will hate KC.
