Dee Ford, who Kansas Metropolis Chiefs lovers know as a Professional Bowl linebacker, though far more informal lovers (oh, and also even now Chiefs lovers) know as the male who jumped offsides to value KC the AFC Title Video game, is reportedly becoming dangled as trade bait by the 2020 Super Bowl favorites.
Even though Ford was at first headed for free agency, the team slapped the normally dreaded franchise tag on him, and are now seeking to trade him on account of dropping a linebacker to go with a 4-3 protection. This wouldn’t be the worst matter in the world, on account of Ford enjoying d-finish in faculty. But, regardless, Adam Schefter has spoken:
Ford is set to change 28 a several months from now and recorded a career-substantial 13 sacks very last year. He was also 2nd in the NFL in QB hurries and manufactured his 1st Professional Bowl. Before this time he experienced just 17.5 sacks in 4 seasons, with a literal greater part coming in the course of a 9-recreation extend in 2016. Nevertheless, prior to ending on a rough take note, a corner was turned this time, and a pass rusher can do miracles when it comes to bringing a protection collectively (see: Bears, Chicago/Mack, Khalil).
“When we drafted Dee a several a long time ago, all those items that we envisioned for him, he form of confirmed that he was that participant,” KC GM Brett Veach explained prior to (now) relatively ironically introducing “we are fired up about bringing him back again.”
If you might be fascinated in an edge rusher, and also come about to be an NFL GM, KC’s mobile phone lines are open up.
