Knile Davis trade rumors re-surface during Chiefs draft week

It's being reported that the Kansas City Chiefs are shopping RB Knile Davis, which should come as little surprise to those who have been following the Chiefs in the past few months.

The Knile Davis trade rumors have been out there for a while. Ian Rapoport said back then that it was Knile who requested the trade. I would guess he's worth a late round pick if the Chiefs get a pick for him. Backs don't have the value they once did.

I can't really blame Knile for wanting out (if that is indeed the case). There are three players ahead of him: one is the NFL's all-time leader in yards per carry and the other two just got contract extensions. So where does Knile fit in? He doesn't. He's still on his rookie deal so the Chiefs won't be forced to trade him from a financial standpoint but if a team comes out of the draft and needs a running back...

So what's Knile doing with these trade rumors swirling? According to a Chiefs player's Snapchat yesterday, he was playing basketball with some of his teammates.

One other thing here. What's that note about the and a "trick or two up their sleeves"? I can only imagine this is related to a trade, no? Not that I want to stir up any trade rumors...
