Trading Truluck to Packers for Draft picks 5th and 6th round...

2004 Updated Bio

Situational pass rusher who backs up Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila at the 'Elephant' (right) defensive end position. Was acquired from Kansas City Sept. 5 in exchange for fifth- and sixth-round picks in the 2005 draft. Mostly has been used as an outside rusher in third-down and other long-yardage situations. Played in 14 games, with one start, and totaled 14 tackles (11 solo), including 21/2 sacks, over the course of the season.

hmmm... seems to me he would have not done anything special for the chiefs this season... Packers D is almost as bad as ours and he didnt impress with his stats...

14 tackles in 14 games is just as bad as Sims....

There was serious talk of us cutting him, so getting a 5th and 6th rounder for him was m0ney in the bank.

Yeah we got picks for someone that may have not even made the team. Also on the positive side it freed up PT for Allen and we know that has played out well.

Yep... R-Kal is a nice story (D3 Cortland State to Arena Football League to NFL), but he was either going to be traded or cut by us. Great trade.

Great deal especially considering the 5th round is Carl's "money round"... in the last few years he's gotten Blaylock, Dante Hall, and Fujita in that round... and he drafted Jared Allen right near the end of the 4th round last year so that was almost a 5th round pick... his success in that area of the draft blows his 2nd round selections out of the water.
