Looking to replace talent that walked for free agency after a return to the playoffs following one of the more successful regular seasons in recent memory the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly willing to deal one of their Pro Bowlers in order to get more picks in the 2014 NFL Draft.
According to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report, the Kansas City Chiefs would be willing to part with 2013 Pro Bowl corner Brandon Flowers for some draft picks.
From Bleacher Report:
The Chiefs are believed to be willing to deal Brandon Flowers in an attempt to acquire extra draft selections.
Flowers is an intriguing potential trade target as he is a very talented corner who also struggled in the Chiefs system last year, which makes sense why the Chiefs are considering him as a potential player to dangle to the rest of the NFL general managers in hopes of grabbing extra draft pick.
Whatever pick the Chiefs could potentially get for Flowers likely wouldn’t be in the first two rounds as Kansas City have given him a contract that would be a decent amount of money to take onto the salary cap on draft day. Flowers has three years left on a six-year, $49.35 million deal that presents a potential roadblock between teams and the Chiefs when it comes to negotiations. Still it is interesting to hear reports of the Chiefs trying to add draft picks in exchange for proven talent as they attempt to find some consistency after breaking through into the playoffs in their first season under new head coach Andy Reid.
