View Full Version : PFT: Chiefs Holding Spot For Trevor Pryce Opposite Jared Allen

Sorry if it's a repost but this will turn into an incredible off-season IMO if we get both Surtain and Pryce. Consider the source, but anything that gives hope that Hicks won't line up across from Jared Allen can't be bad...


In response to our Saturday story regarding the Broncos' unwillingness to put defensive end Trevor Pryce on the open market because another AFC West team might snatch him up, we've heard that two of Denver's rivals -- the Raiders and Chiefs -- would indeed pounce on Pryce if he were to be released.

The Raiders would need to move cornerback Charles Woodson, we're told, before Oakland could make a run at Pryce. With less than $500,000 in cap room and more than $10 million tied up in Woodson's franchise tender, the Raiders' hands are tied, for now.

The Chiefs, we hear, are holding a spot for Pryce across from Jared Allen. Plus, with eight picks on day two of the draft, we're told that the Chiefs could be hoping to work out a back-door deal, with another team initially acquiring Pryce and then shipping him to the Chiefs.

We've yet to research the specific rules in this regard, but we're not aware of any provision that would prevent the Broncos from placing a term in the initial trade that would require the team who acquires Pryce to pony up extra value if the team were then to ship Pryce to another team within a specific time period. Trades often contain conditions that result in further compensation based on the player's performance; it seems, then, that a team like the Broncos could also insert a poison pill that would, as a practical matter, prevent a straw party from turning around and sending Pryce to the Chiefs, Raiders, or Chargers.

We need to get Surtain in the boat first, but it's encouraging knowing the Chiefs may not be done in FA.

PFT: The following is bullshit.

I agree the Chiefs need to concentrate on getting Surtain into KC. If Carl and Co. can also get Pryce in the meantime...this would be the best offseason ever in the history of Carl Peterson. It's about time! Go Carl...you're on a roll...don't stop now!!!! :clap: :thumb: :)

PFT is without a doubt the least credible source in the universe. ROFL
