Page Signs Tender Offer; What’s Next?

From the Truman Sports Complex

FS Jarrad Page on Friday signed one-year, $1,759,000 tender offer that was made to him back in February.

That means Page counts against the Chiefs now 75-man, soon to be 53-man roster. Normally, in cases such as this, teams get the a two to three-week window and roster exemption, which the Chiefs reportedly have applied for and been granted.

According to, Page has not decided yet whether he will report to work with the Chiefs.  Page has asked for a trade. By signing the tender offer, that process becomes easier for the Chiefs and a trading partner to pull off.

Weeks ago, the Chiefs indicated that they had not received any trade offers for Page. With all the bodies moving about with the roster cutdown to 53 in the next 48 hours, some teams will take a look at what’s available and where Page might fit in. But that may not happen until after the first game. From the start Detroit has been the logical landing spot for Page because of the presence of defensive coordiantor Gunther Cunningham and the team’s need for safeties.

Unless the framework of a trade has already been put together, it seems doubtful that one will go down this weekend. It maybe after the first game and teams have assessed their rosters and possible injuries before the trigger on a trade is pulled. One wonders what may have happened had Page signed his tender two weeks ago and reported to the team. The exemption would be running out right now and the Chiefs would then be forced to make a decision.

    Yea I think he signed because a trade behind the seen has been worked out with the Lions. I expect him to be traded tommorow.

    If he can pass the physical, as a bad backup and plays on special teams. Why not? No up side for the Chiefs except if he wants to stay in the NFL next year, he busts his gut this year.

    It’s about time he signed. He was just hurting himself by holding out. I’m sure he’ll have a home shortly. I haven’t heard much about it but Herm Edwards could really evaluate and scout DBs. He’s responsible for both our starting corners named Brandon, he picked up Leggett, Page and Pollard were his picks as well. Pollard’s done well since his KC days.
    It’s hard to let these athletes go but I respect the coach’s efforts to have only his kind of players.
