Chiefs Make Trade At Deadline

As the NFL trading period came to an end on Tuesday, the Chiefs were part of the only deal of the day.

They sent disappointing ’09 third-round draft choice DE Alex Magee to Tampa Bay for a selection in the 2011 NFL Draft. The trade involved a pair of draft choices, with the Buccaneers getting Magee and a draft choice from the Chiefs and Tampa Bay sending a pick to K.C.  There’s no early word on the rounds for those choices.

Magee has been active for only two of the five games this season. He had three total tackles. Last season as a rookie out of Purdue, Magee played in 15 games, started one and finished with eight total tackles and two sacks.

He was the second player selected by Pioli/Haley in their first NFL draft together, going as the 67th choice. Magee is the third of eight selections from the ’09 NFL Draft that are already gone from Kansas City. He joined fifth-rounder OT Colin Brow and seventh-round pick RB Javarris Williams. On Sunday against Houston, only S Donald Washington, TE Jake O’Connell and K Ryan Succop were active.

    I’ll give it to you Bob, the first draft wasn’t a gem to remember. However, I applaud the will to move on and you can’t fault them for trying to, and in this case getting, something out of what was arguably a bad pick. Look at the draft this year and the turnaround to this point and turn the page.

    Let’s not forget we gave a 2nd rounder for Cassell and Vrabel. I know there’s still a lot of disagreement on Cassell’s long term future, but I still think they were good two good players for a 2nd round pick. I still think you need to factor them in the 2009 draft. It looks like the only one of the 3 thru 6 picks to make it is Washington. He’s got very little playing time.

    I don’t like to give up on a player that quick but, hey, I guess if you see it’s not going to work it’s best not to beat a dead horse and just move on, hopefully getting something decent in return.

    If this guy sat that many games he was not going to contribute. Better to get something for him and try and draft a contributor.
