According to Peter King of MMQB.com, the Kansas City Chiefs could make one of their tight ends and/or kickers available for trade before teams are forced to trim their rosters to 53 players.
- King expects the Chiefs to target a “low-round pick” in return for one of their tight ends or kickers.
- It seems unlikely that the Chiefs would be able to do any better than a sixth-round selection in either move, according to King.
King doesn’t mention who the Chiefs could make available, but it seems unlikely that they would field offers for Anthony Fasano, who is currently atop their depth chart, and Travis Kelce. That leaves Demetrius Harris, Richard Gordon and Adam Schiltz as tight ends the Chiefs could make available.
Ryan Succop and rookie Cairo Santos are the only kickers on their roster.
Succop, 27, is entering the third year of his six-year, $14.48 million contract that includes $4 million guaranteed.
He’s coming off of a down year in which he made only 78.6 percent of his field goal attempts while converting just one of four attempts from 50 yards or more.
