The Kansas City Chiefs say goodbye to a favorite at Arrowhead Stadium in 2021.

With the NFL trading deadline on Tuesday, November 2nd, transactions between teams will likely begin in the next 24 hours.

For the Kansas City Chiefs – who have a lot of talent, but who are in Season 3 with only an estimated $ 2.15 million in available cap space trying to get another asset into the building via trade. Because of this, it should – and hopefully will – happen that a proposed deal in particular sending one of the Chiefs offensive players to the Dallas Cowboys will take place.

Ben Solak of The Ringer suggested in an October 27 article proposed seven trades he’d like to see before the trade deadline, and named Kansas City and Dallas in a trade that would send the Austin Blythe backup center to the Cowboys and a selection for the seventh round in 2022, the bosses / p> “We often see veterans being traded away after being ousted by surprisingly successful rookies. This is the case for Austin Blythe, whom the Chiefs signed for the veterans minimum of a guaranteed $ 990,000 with an additional $ 760,000 tied to performance incentives that Blythe is unlikely to meet, ”Solak wrote. « Blythe hasn’t seen a snap this season because the Chiefs picked Oklahoma Center Creed Humphrey in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft and he immediately established himself as a formidable starter through camp and into the regular season. » Solak also noted that Blythe fits in with the cowboys who sit 6-1 after beating the Minnesota Vikings in Sunday Night Football in Week 8.

« Blythe would be cheap and should at least offer some nice depth – but ideally it will replace Biadasz on the pivot, ”he explained. “Blythe is lighter than most Cowboys linemen, but they have worked a lot outside of the zone this season, which is Blythe’s best system. Cowboys Offensive Line Coach Joe Philbin should know how to work with Blythe to enable him to thrive – he was the Indianapolis Offensive Line Coach in 2016 when Blythe was drafted by the Colts in the seventh round.

While it doesn’t look like it on the surface, Solak’s proposed deal would be a win for the reigning AFC champions. When you see Creed Humphrey being a rookie center, it’s a stud, which has resulted in Blythe getting no play time this season and getting everything in return for Blythe – but more importantly, freeing up money by getting firing a player who has no control over Kansas City – is a win.

So, sending Blythe in exchange for a draft pick, albeit a seventh, and enabling the team to make about 3 million Having US dollars in available cap space for potential expenses is one of the more likely arrangements that the Chiefs can meet before 4pm Tuesday. With this in mind, we keep our fingers crossed and hope that General Manager Brett Veach is active in the trading market, be it before or after the Kansas City game in week 8 against the New York Giants at Monday Night Football.
