Could Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen be on his way to the Jacksonville Jaguars? According to Jason La Confora of the NFL Network, that’s what the two teams are discussing.
KC and Jacksonville talking trade, but unable to agree on value of QB Tyler Thigpen, sources said. Chiefs want more than a 5th rounder.
According to SportsCenter, the Chiefs are asking for a third round pick.
H/T to the always amazing folks at Arrowhead Pride for jumping on this before anyone else (including ESPN).
I’ve been one of the biggest Tyler Thigpen fans around — right behind the group that feels he should start over Cassel — so I don’t want to see him traded. To me he’s the best option to backup Cassel. But if Todd Haley has decided that Brodie Croyle is going to be the No. 2 quarterback and Matt Gutierrez will round out the trio then it’s best to get what you can for Thigpen.
How much is Thigpen really worth? I can’t image Jacksonville will give in to a third rounder and the Chiefs aren’t going to be low-balled either. If you meet in the middle with a 4th, I think all sides will be happy.
