Let's say the Eagles and Bills both are in love with Geno and the Eagless offer this years 1, 2 and a 3rd next year. The Chiefs tell the Bills about the offer and say they will take a 1,2, and 2nd next year from them. Do they come back and tell the Chiefs no, because we don't think you are going to pick Geno therefore we won't make the trade knowing for damn well the Eagles will make a trade and take Geno???? How much sense does that make? They either offer more then the other teams or they don't get him regardless of how much the Chiefs covet the pick.
Ok so if on your online auction you write, "I do not want this item at all I want to get rid of it." Where is the bidding gonna start you moron?
