A Kansas City Thought

The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly willing to trade CB Brandon Flowers.

The 28-year-old Flowers made 13 starts for Kansas City a season ago, notching 68 tackles, intercepting one pass and garnering his first-ever Pro Bowl berth.

According to NFLPA data, Flowers is due $5.25 million in 2014, $6.25 million in 2015 and $6.5 million in 2016.

When I saw this I immediately started turning over a trade idea because he is a proven player and his salaries for the next 3 seasons are reasonable....particularly given the way the cap is supposed to expand. I soon remembered (by way of looking it up...) that the Chiefs have no second round pick due to the Alex Smith trade with San Fran. They have pick 23 in the first round and 87 in the third. The Chiefs have needs along the offensive line and at wide receiver. The team hasn't been shy about making moves to address areas of need, as the Smith trade demonstrates--not to mention Reid's history of moving around the draft board while with Philly.

I am thinking of this as a fallback position for the Bills. Say, for example, the guys the Bills covet are gone when Buffalo is on the clock or that the Bills really want a guy who can be had in the late teens/early twenties. Naturally, this would also require someone to be on the board the Chiefs really wanted. Because there is overlap of need (WR, OT) this sort of deal would hinge on KC really liking a guy that the Bills weren't impressed with.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
