NFL Trade Deadline: Creating Context For The KC Chiefs

Last year, I examined Scott Pioli and the New England Patriots' trades to see what the Kansas City Chiefs might do as the deadline nears. 

Of course, based on the fact that Pioli never made an October trade, I figured there wasn't going to be in any action during the 2009 trade deadline. And, as we've mentioned already, the Chiefs did make a trade.

In order to help frame some of our trade debates today, here's a little context for how Scott Pioli has operated during the NFL trade deadline:

  • The Patriots made 12 player/player or player/picks trades since 2001;
  • The Patriots had some great value trades but also made some trades that completely backfired;
  • They were quick to cut loose players with problems (off the field, contract issues and injuries);
  • They traded for six players and traded away six players; and,
  • They never traded away a first round pick for a player.
