Who is going to be the backup CB


Reading the story lines on major networks; Espn,CBS,PFW and seeing the number of injured DB's around the league got me wondering about us. Also got me wondering of a potential trade.

Seeing that CB Al Harris is sidelined for at least 6 weeks and the Patriots losing their starting CB for the season makes me wonder about our secondary. Most project Arenas, but I think it will be someone else. Leggett was dinged but has been filling the role of top backup CB since last year and I believe played some in Herm's last year so he may be the guy. Washington was highly touted as a physically gifted CB coming out of college, but with some suggestions of unknown problems of conduct or character. Most of us would be happy to see someone from the 09 draft class step up and be counted on. Problem, or maybe not, is he has been getting reps at safety.

The Ravens, as expected made a trade for a CB, as they needed depth after an early training camp injury. So expect both NE and Green Bay to look to do the same. Most teams are not in a position to part with DB's, but our Chief's might be in the mix of a couple of teams that could for the right trade. It is no secret we need a RT or help on defense at NT or even LB. The Jet's are deep in DB's but we cannot expect NE to trade with them, and our team has a history with the Pat's. Might something be in the works?

Green Bay is coming to town on thursday, and they are deep in the NT position. Also, since drafting Baluga they might part with last years RT. Could our GM be having talks while the Pack is in town? We will see. Interesting times to be fairly deep in the DB position and have some pressing needs that are obvious to other teams who may be deep at those same positions of need. Pioli has in the past shown he is unafraid to make deals and I not only hope, but wonder if anything is going on.

Let's not forget we have trade bait in our unsigned safety, Interesting enough the Packers have need at the safety position as well as CB. Other teams are looking  as well but the price Scott is asking has been to high. As the season gets close to beginning and teams become more anxious to shore up there teams will something occur that will help out our team before the season starts?

Who will fill in as our CB if Carr is traded, as unlikely as that is.  Starter for starter is not unheard of but won't happen unless it works for both teams. Carr has been a solid player and started every game since being drafted so has a high value that most likely will not be paid. But what about Leggett or Daniels, would they have value? The cut down date is fast approaching and we will keep only so many DB's. So we may not see any trades at all until after the cuts.

Just some thoughts about our team and what if's if something happens injury or trade wise? I have an idea that my frustration and despair levels will be much less this year as the team is getting better. HOT DAMN!!! GO CHIEFS!!!
