AP lobbyist Peter Schrager added the following on the Seattle-Kansas City talks:

It’s not often you see breaking news such as this on game day, but here we are.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that disgruntled Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas could be traded, and the Kansas City Chiefs have emerged as a possible partner.

Thomas, 29, is a five-time All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler who would be a welcomed addition to a Kansas City secondary that desperately needs the help.

With Eric Berry continuing to be held out with a sore heel injury over the season’s first two weeks, this interest makes you wonder if perhaps the injury is a bit worse than expected.

The Chiefs starters right now are Ron Parker and Eric Murray, with rookie Armani Watts and special teamer Jordan Lucas rounding out the depth. The Chiefs are hoping that Daniel Sorensen can return for the second half of the season.

Thanks to the Marcus Peters trade, the Chiefs have two 2019 second-rounders to play with. Could one be enough to acquire Thomas?


Should the Chiefs trade for Earl Thomas?
