So reports are that Dee Ford could be had for as little as a 2nd Round pick.

 

If this is true, I feel Green Bay should be all over this. I know there could be a bidding war, but maybe 44th and a late round pick?

KC knows the depth of this years edge class, so might be the reason for the report.

 

Then turn around and give him a 4yr $65mil deal.

He had only one year with Coach Mike Smith, who is now in GB. He absolutely balled out, keep them together.

 

Thoughts?

I don't think giving up a 2nd rounder is worth it to pay Dee Ford a market rate salary.

A 2nd rounder is a valuable pick and Ford's gonna cost quite a bit to extend. I think it's more likely that someone with 2 2nd round picks pays that price (like the Colts) since teams like to have one pick in every tier of the draft.

Honestly, I'm not a huge Dee Ford guy.  If we're dealing with KC, I'd rather get Houston for a 5th or 6th rounder before they cut him anyways.

I just dont see it with Ford. Maybe I need to go back and watch him closer from this season, but he has never popped out to me as a premium EDGE

Any time you can trade a pick to then overpay someone, you've got to do it, right?

What the hell kind of negotiating leverage do you expect to have after trading a pick? We'll franchise you again? We'll let you walk after one year?

I don't see any value in trading for people on the franchise tag unless it's like a franchise QB

It depends. If it is apparent during the legal tampering period next week we are going to completely strike out, I'd consider it for a second.

You are not getting a value contract by trading for Ford since you are paying market rate for him, but you are guaranteeing a really good player, which there is value in.  I'd rather have him for 15 than Preston of Z Smith at 10-13M. Due to the whiffs of 2015 draft class and likely 2017, we are good in cap and are in no danger of losing core pieces. There is like a 98% chance Ford is better than anyone we draft in the second, and the odds of the second being more than just a mediocre starter that is as valuable than their contract is only like 30%.

I'm not willing to bend over for him, but I'm surprised at the lack of interest in a 27 year old guy ( younger than Mack) who had more sacks and TLF than Mack in 2018.

( Yes I fully realize sacks aren't everything and Mack has had a better career)

He was a contract year guy. I've also heard Chief fans aren't that high on him. That's worrisome.

Didn’t Mack need a new contract too?
