If Golden Tate Is A Target, Santonio Holmes Trade Helps Chiefs

If Charlie Weis and the Kansas City Chiefs were interested in drafting Notre Dame WR Golden Tate, then a minor roadblock was just cleared.

The Jets, who had reportedly shown interest in drafting a receiver, just surrendered a fifth round pick for the rights to the Steelers WR Santonio Holmes.

This seemingly takes the Jets out of the running for a first round receiver.

Tate to the Chiefs makes a lot of sense. The Chiefs are in need of a receiver. They're also in need of a receiver proficient in getting open on broken plays and scrambles. They also need a return man.

Golden Tate fits the bill.

We haven't even talked about his relationship with Charlie Weis and how it would be a dream to play for him.

We don't know whether the Chiefs will draft him but we do know their chances of him being available just increased.

Unless those pesky Bucs get in the way.
