Time For The Annual 'Trade Glenn Dorsey' Talk

Yes, it's that time of year. We're in the middle of the NFL offseason (err, locked out offseason) and there's not a whole lot going on in the NFL so this is usually the time trade scenarios are thrown about. And, in Kansas City, the last few years those scenarios have involved DE Glenn Dorsey.

Many of us were skeptical of Dorsey's future when the Chiefs moved from the 4-3 to the 3-4 but the 2010 season showed Dorsey on the field a whole lot and generally establishing himself as an important part of the defense.

Despite that, it's time for the annual "Trade Glenn Dorsey" talk. For that, we turn to National Football Post.

The Falcons, Seahawks, Rams and Titans are 4-3 teams that need interior DL help. They would be wise to send draft picks Kansas City's way for a player many teams slotted as the best defensive player in the 2008 draft....During the Tony Dungy-Jim Caldwell era, the Colts have not had an explosive defensive tackle to complement their speedy edge rushers. The Vikings need to rejuvenate their aging Williams Wall along the D-line. Since Harris' bad knees curtailed his career, the Bears have yet to adequately replace him.

Dorsey doesn't fit the 3-4 defense. He's not big enough. He's not tall enough. He's a 4-3 defensive tackle. Colts fans are already chiming in on whether KC would send him to Indianapolis.

Yet, for all the reasons KC should trade Dorsey, they haven't. In fact, they're putting him on the field -- a lot. Like over 85 percent of the time. Josh Looney said it best: "Where would Chiefs d-line be if they traded Dorsey? Not something I'd like to see."

it's all just part of the annual "Let's trade Glenn Dorsey" talk.

It's Game Time.
