Chiefs trade bait, Dolphins avoid catastrophe, Vikings UDFA buzz
The altering method the NFL values operating backs has been the most important story of the summer season thus far with Josh Jacobs holding out with the Raiders and Jonathan Taylor requesting a trade from the Colts. Groups aren’t fascinated with paying large bucks for rushers. Curiosity in buying and selling for them must be at an all-time low as nicely.
However that’s why the suggestion from Bleacher Report’s Matt Holder that the Chiefs ought to take calls on Clyde Edwards-Helaire stands out. This may really be a uncommon case for a operating again trade to make excellent sense.
Mainly, the Chiefs are set at operating again with Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon. CEH has been dropped to 3rd within the pecking order. He’s about as essential to Kansas Metropolis as he thought it was essential to attend the Chiefs Tremendous Bowl parade. And he’s within the ultimate 12 months of his rookie deal after the workforce declined his fifth-year possibility.
Not like the Colts with Taylor, Kansas Metropolis doesn’t have strain to get as a lot again for Edwards-Helaire as potential. You’ve received to consider he’d be accessible for affordable.
As Holder wrote:
“A veteran participant or perhaps a late-round decide can be extra useful for Kansas Metropolis, particularly because it has undrafted free-agent signing Deneric Prince as an insurance coverage coverage for the third spot on the depth chart if Edwards-Helaire will get traded.”
On the similar time, there are groups on the market who might use some assist at operating again and Edwards-Helaire, who has been fairly productive (when wholesome), may very well be a powerful possibility to herald.
There’s a win-win trade available if a workforce comes calling.
