Lions beat writer Tom Kowalski is now talking about Jarrad Page and the Lions. Recent reports have said the Liosn are interested in acquiring Page. Kowalski doesn't have any new information but he's one of the best beat writers in the business so I figured we'd take a look at what he had to say.
The question isn't whether the Lions are interested in Page - of course, they are. The two questions are these: Are the Chiefs really interested in trading him and, if so, what's it going to take to close the deal? Page would solidify that spot opposite of Delmas and there's been some communication between the two teams.
We've pretty much determined that the Lions are definitely interested. This has come from Kansas City (us), Detroit (Tom Kowalski) and national level (Len Pasquarelli).
Are the Chiefs really interested in trading him? I'm sure they'd trade anyone for the right price. As they say, there are no sacred cows.
What's it going to take to close the deal? This is the million-dollar question.
However, is this a situation where the Chiefs really want to let him go because he might develop into a problem (he's already demanded a trade) or is it one of those deals where the Chiefs will ask for a king's ransom and will only trade him if they can rob somebody blind?
My guess? The Chiefs will hang onto him until (or if) the deal is right. They won't give him away based on the idea he's a problem-child because he's not. But they won't be bullied into trading him.
