Perhaps there are other threads dealing with this question. Honestly, I don't care. What happens to Trent Green now? What are the scenarios now that the draft is over (it is, right?)? Can he stay? If so, how? Does he go? If so, how?

Thanks.

Some possibilities:

1) Chiefs keep him at existing money. Let him compete in offseason. Keep him in regular season.
2) Chiefs keep him at existing money. Let him compete in offseason. Cut him in June to take half the hit they would take otherwise.
3) Chiefs keep him at existing money. Trent decides to retire instead of stay on the team.
4) Chiefs work a trade of some sort, like to Miami, for next year picks or another player.
5) Chiefs release him. Miami picks him up for free.



You could add: Trent reworks his deal with the Chiefs, but that isn't going to happen, I don't think.

all possible, but I'm guessing #1 (or a restructure with us as an 1b option)
number three or number 4 (along with 4b - another team with a training camp injury)

As long as it ain't Choice #5, I'm okay with any of the above....although, I don't even think we should do #2....because then he could still play for Miami.

Whatever happens, he can't play for the Dolphins....after the shit they pulled. UNLESS they give us their 3rd or 4th rounder from NEXT year.

I don't think there is any way he restructures.

He knows he can stay with us for alot of money or sign with anyone he wants for however much he can get. Resigning with us for less money at this point would land him on the retarded list.

Yeah. People don't usually take voluntary paycuts out of the goodness of their hearts when they're toward the end of their careers. I suppose they could get him to June then talk about whether he still wants to be released at that point or would prefer to take a paycut and stay on for the rest of the season. Even if that happened, my guess would be that he'd force a release.

He would be a better man than me. If you held me till my value dropped then asked me to take a cut, I'd probably tell you how I really feel.

Neither side of this deal is at fault. They are both looking out for number one. I was hoping it would work out yesterday with both side getting something.

the whole situation's been pretty wangtastic. I hope we get something for Trent, but I feel like our time to sell has passed. If we get anything at this point, I would be pleased. That said, I would have laughed at the offers I saw from Miami as well.

04-29-2007, 08:53 PM
I think it is a shame that Miami didn't step up to the plate to get Trent. Of course I think it is a shame that Trent didn't go t a few more places as well, but I don't know if that was lack of interest elsewhere or the fact that he made up his mind to go to Miami.

My hope is that he gets an offer for a next years pick, but I really don't know what Miami is thinking. Of course I don't understand why we screwed with Trent to begin with. The coaches could have split up the passing in the camp's anyway they wanted to giving a chance for the others to win the position without insulting Trent publicly.

Taking care of yourself and yours doesn't lessen your integrity. I respect the hell out of Trent and no matter what happen with this deal I will feel the same. I just think that if he were gonna take a cut he would worked it out with the team already.

I think Miami stood their ground and didn't buy any of Carl's bullshit. Everyone in the league knows Trent will not be starting opening day for you. I doubt Carl will let Trent rot on the bench. Carl swallows his pride and releases him eventually.

I heard that Trent is under contract through 2008. The story goes, the Chiefs will start him this year. If he has a good year, someone will step up and trade for him for 2008. If he sucks, he'll lose the starting job before the end of the season and be released.

Why the hell not? He's the best QB presently on the roster. Croyle could use another year of seasoning--maybe play some later in the year. And with the cap money situation this year.....there should be NO problem paying the guy. He's certainly earned it.

I agree, I think it's one of those moves to show miami just how valuable trent is to us to try and run up the price.

We got nothing to lose by keeping him (except some money--and the dude's really already earned it in my book)--as a mentor, as insurance, as a high priced backup. Screw Miami.

Bottom-line is....I don't know that Croyle is ready. Unless the dude has been a total workout demon, and put on 15-20 lbs....he could get killed, and that's the last thing anyone who's a Chiefs fan would want.

But he can hold onto him long enough to make it hard for Miami to use him as a starter as well. He can't train, use the books or anything from Miami without screwing with tampering rules, which may cost them more then a 4th. So sure, Miami holds out, and Miami signs a guy who has 3 weeks to get in sync with all new WR's. Oh, and Trent has shown that it sometimes take him a whole year to get comfortable with one.

Trent got his feelings hurt when he was asked to restructure and compete for his job but I bet it was a bigger slap in the face to him when the fish wouldn't give anything up to get him. He asked for and got permission to shop around and now he's facing the fact that nobody stepped up with an offer even close to what he and KC thought he was worth. If he is as "stand-up" a guy as he seems to be I see him coming back to KC, winning the job back and having a really good year just to prove them wrong.

With all that he did for this team, he's earned that money in my book....I know that goes against the grain in "business," but the Chiefs have shown some class....with the way they have treate Holmes for instance. I think, ethically, it would be just fine....good even...to just pay the guy, ESPECIALLY if he is our best QB right now (even if we give Croyle a look later in the season....)

I think he's done a great job of taking care of his family, but he's agreed in principle to play for less money this year with Miami, he was treated well by carl and the chiefs, if he stays I don't think a reconstuction to his contract makes him an idiot, I think it makes him a good stand up guy.

I agree that you cannot judge Trent because of 1/2 year. but how is it that most people can say definitively that Dante (who is only 30) will never come back and be the pro bowl QB he was? Granted, one was a serious knee injury and the other was a concussion, but a serious concussion. For thos who say Trent is going to come back and be all that, why can't the same be said for Dante and if it can, why would the Phins trade for Trent?

I've been pondering this today. Well many days but today in particular. I think that Croyle does need to get in the game if he's gonna be our QBOTF. Not this year though. Not with this line. F*ck Miami, and f*ck Trent Green. He blackballed us in negotiations. He's accounted for in terms of money this year. Send him to the Wolves. If he takes another shot like he did last year, it's a shame, but it's business. I want Croyle to succeed. I don't think he will with the line we have in place now. Trent has "earned" his money for all of his service to this squad, but the shit he pulled with refusing to talk to anyone but Miami, I say enjoy your swan song Mr. Green. Harsh, but at this point how I feel. I'm a fan of this TEAM. Not one player. It'll be fun watching the quarterback rotation in Miami this year as well.

Not a bad take. But what do you think it does for team chemistry with him being here even though he doesn't want to be? I don't know the conversation taht went on between Trent and the FO or Herm, but my understanding is that some bridges have been burned. I understand that Trent is under contract with the chiefs and if he wants to play, the Chiefs can say play for us or retire, but for a sport that relys on all 11 guys working together, chemistry is important. Then again, maybe none of the players really care and understand that it is just business and maybe Trent is a professional and would suck it up and do well. Hell, we're all speculating on what was said and how people feel.

I think when it comes down to it, money talks and the bullshit walks. If the man gets paid, he'll give it his all. Especially if he wants any cred to play for anyone at all next year. I also think Trent is professional enough to stick it out for the bucks. I don't think it will be a problem, and I think it's best for Brody as well.

I would not disagree with this. And this is where I think you make sense. Too many people are saying, "He sucks for us but is worth a 2nd to the Phins." And I think the franchises are close to the same situation. If he sucks for you, he sucks for the Phins. But you think he will be good for the Chiefs, so the argument that he is worth more than a 6th holds water.

I think he returns to form. Unfortunately, I don't think either line will allow him to show it.

Why? If he's unwilling to restructure with anyone but Miami then it's a mute point. If he'd talked to Cleveland it may have affected our entire draft. That's one of the reasons I've taken the stance I have with him.

if they want a reliable pro bowl QB that will most likely result in another Super Bowl appearence, and Herm and Lovie are best friends.It's all about pulling the right strings

Which are Trent's. Right now, he's not a big fan of Herms I don't think. If it would work and the compensation was right, I'm game.

God, we have some real idiots here...

Last year's play proved nothing more than Green took a very serious hit to the head. You cannot look at what he did last year and say that he no longer has it. What complete dumbassery. Now if he plays like that this year that will be a valid claim, but right now, it's f#cking assanine.

You're the real idiot. Don't make me prove that, too.

Too bad it isn't like baseball and the Chiefs could eat part of the contract. The Bears would be a great fit for Trent. They are a team making a run that needs a QB. Good call. Wonder if Trent woudl restructure to turn some of the salary into bonus. He wouldn't have to take a pay cut and the Chiefs could pay the bonus and essentially pay part of the contract. Then again, if Trent is hell bent on playing for Miami, he won't restructure.

Why can't you base his worth on last season's play? I don't think anybody really knows how Trent Green will play in 2007 (if he plays in 2007). We know he played well from 2002-2005; we know he played poorly in 2006. I'm not a doctor but I don't see that we can assume his play will return to his peak. He had a very serious head injury which kept him out for more than 2 months and when he did return he wasn't the same. The only fair deal would be a conditional future, based on performance.

He'll still be traded, and Miami will end up paying more than they wanted. That's my guess. It doesn't hurt us at all to wait.

I would strongly caution against underestimating the man.

Agreed. Trent is a tough SOB with a lot of heart. He has overcome a lot of diversity in his career. I wouldn't count him out yet.

Trent's play is all about the Oline. He doesn't have the mobility to perform behind an average unit. Concussion or not.

Everyone keeps mentioning the $7.2 million price tag to keep Trent, but what will it cost to cut him? Is it really going to be a big savings since he got a big contract just a couple of years ago?
