    Read this over on HPT...I think this is as far a progression in this previously discussed trade as I have read about.


    Reserve safety Greg Wesley, a starter for the last seven seasons, could be traded soon to the Chiefs’ opening-day opponent, the Houston Texans.

    The Texans are in need of a veteran safety and have asked the Chiefs what it would take to acquire Wesley. The Chiefs promoted two of last year’s draft picks, Jarrad Page and Bernard Pollard, ahead of Wesley and into the starting lineup.

    The Chiefs had talked to the Denver Broncos about a deal involving Wesley, but the Chiefs were hesitant about sending him to a team they will play twice this season.

    If they make the trade they need to make sure Anthony Weaver is involved in it.

    I imagine Gado or Lundy will be involved, since their RB is suspect without LJ.

    Apparently Kubes has a thing for Michael Bennett as well, so it may be a multi player trade.

    Sounds as though he probably has a decent amount still left in the tank (good height at 6'2", and not afraid to hit even though he is only 206 pounds). Starting 30 games since 2005, is evidently VERY DURABLE, again despite his 206 pound frame.:

    Skill and style wise Wesley is probably similiar to CC Brown. He has played better and longer, but would not be long term solution at the position, assuming a 6th or 7th rounder, there are worse things that the Texans could do.

    I think he would be the equal of anyone we had.

    Just hope we don't give up draft picks for him.

    What interests me about the report is that they have put two youngsters back there to start. I'm hoping this can be exploited come game time.

    Maybe a big day for Daniels opening up the middle of the field.

    Saw this on HPF...

    Link: www.kansascity.com/sports/story/237919.html

    Its seems like we really want him, and might end up with him too. Looking at his stats, he seems like a really good player but I know stats don't tell the whole story about a player.

    If anyone every seen this guy play, please spare some info about him. Does anyone know why he got demoted in KC?

    I fully admit that I have a bias against many Chiefs that comes from living in Kansas City. That said, I always thought he was one of the weaker links in an already weak defense up there.
