The Kansas City Chiefs reached a contract agreement with Miami cornerback Patrick Surtain, and they're expected to make a draft-day trade.

It's from ProSportsDaily.com.

Who knows. I just wanted to start a Surtain thread...

Yes, and Steinbrenner is publically ripping into them already. I love it. I wish our crappy owner would do the same to our team. You can hate on Steinbrenner all you want but at least he wants to win. All Glass cares about is selling cheap crap to the masses.

The Houston Chronicle? Pretty reputable. John McClain is on every NFL media voting committee, so he's been around a LONG time. He covered the Oilers forever and told Bud Adams he wouldn't be making the move to Tenn. He covered the entire NFL for several years until the Texans started playing.

Holy Cow, if what this guy says is true and we obtained both Surtain and and Derrick Johnson, id just about bust a nut all over this message board.

If David Glass said something like that it wouldn't even make Sportscenter.... and you can hate on Glass all you want but what Steinbrenner is actually for isn't just winning, but keeping all his money and screwing up competitive balance while Glass wants an NFL-style revenue/salary cap system... if Glass had his way, Steinbrenner wouldn't be the owner "who wanted to win the most" anymore... that really is not even debatable...

I think the deal will go down late Friday.

This is no secret, ninjas really did kill his family. Hopefully they find the ninjas responsible, and in the meantime, someone gives him money to get revenge. I think I have Steven Segal's number somewhere...

Me too! But how would we get both because the 2nd would no doubt be used to move up to get Johnson and that's the pick that Miami wants for Surtain. Maybe they'll take a 2nd next year or something? :hmmm:

If we pick up Surtain the man... it doesnt matter to me who we get in the draft, because this offseason has been active, and I deem that a success. hopefully, it will translate into W's in the season. But at least KC, [king carl] made an attempt this offseason.

The deal for Surtain is done.

This is Trent Green, part 2.5.

I just can't believe King Carl is lying to us about it. :D

I think the reason for the draft day trade is because if the player we want isn't there when we pick in the first, we will trade down with Miami getting their 2nd rounder & Surtain. If our player is there in the first we take him and just give up the 2nd for Surtain.

Now I don't think that's a big secret, but as usual for us, it's telegraphed pretty far out so every other team knows it's going to happen and someone else might trade up just ahead of us, because they-like the rest of the world-hate Carl Peterson.

I also like the article there about the Redskins and how their 2nd year Safety Sean Taylor wants his contract redone as does Santanna Moss.

I guess when the whole world knows your owner pays stupid money for players, it can come back to bite you in the old nutsack.

The only people that hate Carl Peterson are the fans and media in KC.

Carl Peterson is VERY well-respected in the NFL.

Last I heard, no agreement has even been reached between the player and the Chiefs.

The only people saying that is Carl Peterson, Dick Vermeil, and Bob Gretz.

Everybody and their dog has reported that the deal is done. King Carl is just a tough SoB negotiator and doesn't want to tip his hand.
