The Human Joystick to STL
Yesterday we traded Dante Hall to St. Louis for a 5th rounder and moving up 2 spots in the 3rd round.
My take is its a good move. Given the retirement of Shields, we are now officially in a rebuilding phase and need as many draft picks as possible. I'm not sold on Carl and Herm's ability to parlay the picks into players, but without picks, we have no shot at all.
Tentatively, I am hoping we trade Green for a 4th or even a 6th and a conditional 4th based upon his play. This may be the best we can do for him. Playing him in the playoff game v. Indy ruined what value he had.
Regarding LJ, if we could trade him for picks equivalent to what Balt gave up for MacGahee, I would be happy. However, if we can't get good value for him, my vote is just let him leave via free agency and get what compensatory picks we can - probably a late 3rd.
Looking forward to the draft - the most exciting and frustrating day in Chiefs football every year.
