The Kansas City Chiefs got the steal of the year with the Matt Cassel trade. Â Matt Cassel could have easily gone for multiple picks. Â But he didn’t. Â He went for a 2nd round pick, and he was paired with veteran linebackerÂ Mike Vrabel. Â The math just doesn’t add up.
Matt Cassel = 1st round pick + 3rd round pick
Matt Cassel + Mike Vrabel = 2nd round pick???????
I understand the Patriot’s concept of having a 2nd round pick, its less expensive, and they have had good production out of the 2nd rounders. Â I also see how Vrabel was added on to get rid of some cap space but he is still worth another pick at least.Â Is it too much to ask for a 4th rounder? 5th? 6th? or even 7th? Â I mean seriously ONLY a 2nd rounder for an offensive leader and a defensive leader? Â Ridiculous. Â There is some risk involved for the Chiefs, Â Cassel could be a one year wonder, but the risk of a 2nd round pick is just as risky. Â At least Cassel has proved something at the NFL level.Â Â Â If I was a Patriot’s fan I would feel pretty screwed about the whole deal.Â
If I was a fan of the Patriots I would feel pretty screwed, and if I were a Chiefs fan I would be pretty happy with the trade.Â
What do the fans out there think?
