Lions Writer Predicts The Price Tag On Chiefs Safety Jarrad Page

Chiefs safety Jarrad Page is rumored to be available for the right price (as all players are, I suppose) because he has publicly requested a trade and hasn't signed his restricted free agent tender.

Lions writer Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News says there's "no doubt" the Lions are offering a late-round pick but predicts the Chiefs are going to hold out until that draft pick increases.

The Chiefs are hoping for a third- or fourth-round pick (good luck), but will probably settle for a fifth-rounder. The Lions will try hard to get Page for a sixth or seventh-round pick, but should consider pulling the trigger for a fifth-rounder.

With Kendrick Lewis and Jon McGraw in place at free safety, I think the Chiefs should be happy with a fifth round pick but it's understandable that they would attempt to pry a higher pick out of the Lions or other interested teams.

As I've said before, the Chiefs best move may be hanging onto Page until the last possible moment (if they're going to trade him). A training camp injury would quickly increase his value or waiting until closer to Sept. 12 could force the Lions hand out of desperation.

So, a fifth round pick? Agree? Disagree?
