View Full Version : LaConfora: Chiefs love Michael Floyd

Very quietly, the Kansas City Chiefs have done a lot of work on receivers, and I hear they love Michael Floyd. I don't see Floyd getting beyond the 11th or 12th spot in this draft. Watch for Arizona to make a move. The Cards believe he is special and could form a ridiculous tandem with Larry Fitzgerald. If he's there around 10, Arizona is primed to move up.

Blackmon, at worst, ends up at No. 7. People I talk to are convinced the Jags are sold on him (of course, if he's gone, and given Floyd's off-field issues -- character matters infinitely in Jacksonville -- then the Jags could have a quandary). And Kendall Wright is very hot as well. Again, Kansas City at 11 is in consideration. Everyone is putting the Jets with a pass rusher, and it makes sense, but Wright is someone the Jets have paid a lot of attention to as well. Regardless, I see three receivers in the top half of the first round.

Seriously, no chance in hell.

Would make things interesting though.... Bowe, Breaston, Baldwin, and Floyd.

Christ.

WTF? Is he just tossing shit out there?

This is the 1st I've read about Floyd to the Chiefs.

I'll say this: it would speak volumes about what we plan to do with Bowe.

I could see the Chiefs doing something like this...not in taking Floyd but taking someone that NO ONE is talking about in regards to us.

List minute rumors scare me. I will always remember T Jax a few days before the draft.

This...

Here, watch this.

Chiefs have interest in Andrew Luck.

I don't expect Luck to drop past 1, but if he does make it to 11, expect the Chiefs to pick him.

Why the hell not? A shitload of studs at WR and a QB that can't get the ball to them...

It's LaCanfora....the guy who said we were picking Russel Okung 5 seconds before we picked Eric Berry. I'm not believing anything he says.

Am I missing something?

The rumor about Bowe signing his tender specifically mentions the Chiefs interest in Michael Floyd.

La Canfora simultaneously says the rumor about Bowe is NOT true but that the Chiefs ARE interested in Floyd?

Weird, weird, weird.

Draft Floyd. Trade Bowe to NE for one of their 1sts.

Draft Konz.

Pray for a QB

Nothing to see here...move along, move along.

This would be one of the few players that I would be genuinely surprised to see KC draft.

Another breaking story hrs before the draft. I wonder how much $ the media gets to drop rumors to the public.
Much like on game day to persuade betting on one team or another its a big business money to be made at all angles of NFL.

Floyd is a bad ass. If we draft him and trade Bowe for a future first rounder and a pick this year, it might not be a bad move.

See Mike Wallace?

I Don't think too many teams are ponying up a 1st rounder and a fat contract at the moment.

Seriously???

Mike Wallace's salary demands are ridiculous.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported that Wallace wants a better deal than Larry Fitzgerald's eight-year, $120 million pact with the Cardinals. If there's any truth to the report, it isn't worth a team's time to even negotiate with Wallace.

I would imagine that Bowe is wanting something similar or Pioli would have already locked him up.

What a waste. Reporters are going all in on reporting even the most untrue of rumors out there. Such is the 24 hour news cycle.

This is what we know for sure-

Nobody knows for sure what the Chiefs are planning to do. Nobody.

While Bowe is super talented, I think we could all agree that he's been less than clutch.

I could see this happening, certainly more than a trade up to #3 for a LT.

This was put out there by the Chiefs in order to try an get Bowe to sign his tender. Nothing more.

Just like our "love" for Barron was put out there to pressure Dallas into trading up into our spot.

You can't really be clutch when you don't have a QB who can get you the ball in clutch situations.

Bowe is awesome in the clutch. It is in the routine where he fails.

This seems to be a quality that Chiefs fans really care about in WRs. It's what Bowe gets hammered for nonstop. Yet the solutions all involve guys who sometimes get butterfingers just as bad as Bowe
