Anyone hear?

I'm really glad to get Dorsey, but if the rumor is true that they were offering us their #1 and #2, and a #1 next year, I think I would've taken it.

That was the rumor but Chiefs personnel later denied it was ever offered.

I don't think the actual offer has been made public.

The Chiefs totally denied the 1st, 2nd, and 1st in 2009 report. The story going around is they offered their 1st, a 7th, and their 1st in 2009. Gretz wrote it up and just said they offered a 1st and 7th, which is completely insane, so presumably he left off the 2009 pick.

I guaran-dam-tee you it wasn't what Gretz said: A swap of 1sts and the Saints' 7th-round pick.

That's a ton to pass up, if it's true. BUT, we needed Dorsey with having to face Denver's zone scheme, Tomlinson, and now McFadden twice a year.

A 7th? Do the Saints think Carl is stupid?

Oh. Yeah. I could see why they would offer that.

NO we did the right pick ... We had to replace Allen ...

I'm thrilled to have Dorsey. I'd rather just run with that.

We didnt replace Allen. We upgraded our interior but we still need another end.

Ah why mess with it. When you have a chance to draft a guy who's regarded as possibly the best player in the draft, just do it.
