Not recently, but once upon a time.

I just finished a radio spot on a Baltimore station to talk about tonight's Ravens-Chiefs game. One of the hosts was Vinny Cerrato, Washington's former general manager.

He said that shortly after Scott Pioli and Todd Haley joined the Chiefs in 2009, he called and offered a fourth-round pick for Jamaal Charles.

Charles was fourth in line at running back at the time behind Larry Johnson, Kolby Smith and even Dantrelle Savage.

Cerrato said the Chiefs countered by asking for a third-round choice. Washington refused and trade talks died.

But the Chiefs were that close to losing Charles.

I forgot about ol' Dantrelle, didn't they give him a nickname? I remember back in those days I hated Kolby Smith's guts, not personally or anything, it was because he was always hurt and when he would come back he would get chance after chance after chance, kinda like Broken Crayon, (oops there is a brodie reference, you know what that means.......

This IS NOT a new story. It was leaked a few years ago.

well it seems to be a news story for a reporter of the Chiefs as it hadn't been ever confirmed......difference between rumors and news

Cerrato talked about this when Charles first busted out.

I cant believe he was ever 4th on the depth chart? I wouldnt say his rookie year (2008) was anything great, but he did flash alot of potential for everyone to see.

Dude Haley benched him for the home opener in 2009.

I said at the time and I still think it was all a motivational ploy to see if these guys were motivated to fight for their jobs or not. There were a lot of trade rumors swirling around at the time, IE Dorsey, DJ, etc...

If that hack has EVER been right it's been purely by chance and dumb luck. I still don't believe he's ever been right though......he's nothing more than a thief and a POS.
