This off-season has seen a lot of twists and turns to the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive secondary. First, the team released defensive back Darrelle Revis in a move that saved the team from having to take on a massive contractual option for 2018. A trade with Washington brought corner back Kendall Fuller to KC in exchange for quarterback Alex Smith and this was followed by the free agent signing of former Raiders CB David Amerson. Nearly a week later, a trade that would send CB Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams was leaked and reports surfaced that the Chiefs planned to move on from starting safety Ron Parker.
There had been rumors that a trade involving Smith and Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib could be a good move for both sides. This was quickly shot down when the team commented that trades involving division rivals are very difficult to pull off. This is mostly due to teams wanting a little bit extra since there is more risk in trading with rivals.
On Wednesday evening, Talib took to Twitter and responded to a report by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, that the Broncos could be looking to move on from the 32-year old CB.
As mentioned before, any trade with the Broncos would be incredibly difficult and unlikely, but should the tempered CB become available by release, the Chiefs would inquire.
