Chiefs Make a Trade with Dolphins for G/C Andy Alleman

Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli didn't sway too far from the family tree in this one.  The Chiefs traded with the Miami Dolphins to acquire guard/center Andy Alleman.

This is the second time since Pioli's hiring on January 13th that he has made a trade with his father-in-law, Bill Parcells.  The Chiefs traded up to acquire TE Jake O'Connell on the second day of the draft.

The compensation has not been disclosed.  My guess is a late round draft pick considering Alleman has been running with the Dolphins' third team offense.

Adam Caplan of Scout was the first to report the move.

This actually is not the first time the Chiefs have tried to acquire Alleman.  He was cut by the Saints after being a third round draft pick in 2007.  The Dolphins were first on the waiver wire and snagged him on August 31st, 2008.

But, according to the NFL Network, six other teams put in a claim for him including the Arizona CardinalsDenver BroncosIndianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots and New York Jets.

He started four games last season at left guard and appeared in 11 more.

It's presumed he will compete with others to back up Mike Goff at right guard.
