Is Colin Cowherd suggesting Chiefs trade Eric Berry, Dontari Poe and Travis Kelce for Jimmy Garoppolo?

New, comments

This from Colin Cowherd ... is he suggesting the Kansas City Chiefs trade Eric Berry, Dontari Poe and Travis Kelce for Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo? What?

“All you Chiefs fans that are reluctant to give away Alex Smith and to give away Eric Berry and Dontari Poe and Travis Kelce to get a better quarterback, enjoy the next hail storm because you’re not going anywhere,” Cowherd said. “You’ve hit your ceiling. If you’re happy in a division with Derek Carr twice a year, Philip Rivers twice a year and John Elway twice a year, if you’e content with what you got at quarterback, okay. But we just saw what all those Pro Bowlers mean in the big game and you played it at home ... I’ve give up whatever it takes to get Jimmy Garoppolo.”

There are two different things going on here. Do the Chiefs need a quarterback? They need to be setting themselves up for the future this offseason with a draft pick. That’s the best case scenario that I see.

But to give up all those players for an unknown in Jimmy Garoppolo? I don’t get it. Why not just draft someone and keep Berry, Poe and Kelce? Garoppolo and a draft pick are both unknowns. Except one is a Patriot so we think Belichick given him the magic touch and he’ll be the next Brady which is ... unlikely.
