Acquire Patrick Surtain and Jason Taylor

KANSAS CITY -- CNNSI has learned that the Kansas City Chiefs have completed a deal that will send running back Priest Holmes to the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins would send cornerback Patrick Surtain and defensive end Jason Taylor to the Chiefs in exchange for Holmes.

The Chiefs have called a news conference for 3 p.m. CST to announce the trade.

The fact that Holmes was on the trading block will come as a big surprise to Chief fans. When healthy, Holmes is one of the best backs in football, but he's suffered season ending leg injuries in two of the last three seasons. That, combined with the improved play of Larry Johnson and the need to upgrade their talent on defense forced the Chiefs to make a move.

The additions of Surtain and Taylor, combined with the free agent signings of linebacker Kendrell Bell and safety Sammy Knight, give the Chiefs four new starters in an effort to improve the league's 31st ranked defense.

With Holmes the Dolphins hope to have found their answer at running back, which has been a revolving door since the sudden retirement of Ricky Williams on the eve of last year's training camp.

Obviously fake. Not at all a professional sounding article. Plus "ChiefsWarpath" owns that IP, not SI

So lopsided it's not even a little bit believable.

It works better if you change your hotlink on the thread starter to something that uses http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/

Yep....... fake shit, but damn, if the cap could handle it and the Fish were stupid enough to pull it out, that would be a great trade for us.

Of course, Holmes would balk at that trade anyways.

No, we have a large contingent of immature people here who will continue this all day. Each one thinking he's very clever and original.
