RE: Bennett Traded to Chiefs!!!

Chiefs | Team acquires M. Bennett
Tue, 1 Aug 2006 20:59:52 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Kansas City Chiefs have acquired RB Michael Bennett from the New Orleans Saints for what is believed to be a future draft choice. Paperwork must still be filed with the NFL office and the deal is contingent on Bennett passing a Chiefs' physical exam. Passing the exam is not expected to be an issue because Bennett is already practicing with the Saints.

Does anybody have any idea what round the pick is? I know that the Saints had an offer from the Rams for a fourth-round pick but they turned it down. The FO says it was because they didn't want to trade Bennett to another NFC team, but I wonder if they were hoping to, and did, get a better pick from the Chiefs....

I mean what is Bennett worth? I think KC would be foolish to give us anything better than a 4 for Bennett with LJ and Priest on their roster. That said Im glad we got something for him cause we didnt really need him.

Michael Bennett - #23 - Running back - 5'9" - 211lbs
News: The Chiefs have reportedly acquired RB Michael Bennett from the Saints in exchange for an undisclosed future draft pick.
Impact: Bennett provides a much better handcuff for Larry Johnson owners than Dee Brown ever would have. Head coach Herm Edwards didn't think LJ could carry the full load and the speedy Bennett can be the change-of-pace back he was looking for. Priest Holmes can now retire quietly. (Wed. Aug 2, 2006) oh well at lest it is a draft choice. we are rolling the dice here and i hope duce's knee do not come up snake eyes.

Priest is a very large question mark. the risk of re-injuring that neck .... man i would not do it.
A fourth in 07 and a late pick in 08 maybe. the 08 might depend on playing time. might be lucky and get a 3 in 07.
now it is duce, bush and stecker. if duce goes down?
we got
26 Deuce McAllister RB 6'1" 232 28 12/27/1978 6 Mississippi
23 Reggie Bush RB 5'11" 200 21 3/2/1985 0 USC
27 Aaron Stecker RB 5'10" 213 31 11/13/1975 7 Western Illinois
45 Keith Joseph RB 6'2" 223 25 12/9/1981 1 Texas A&M
25 Fred McAfee RB 5'10" 197 38 6/20/1968 15 Mississippi College
46 Nate Schurman RB 6'2" 247 25 11/8/1981 0 Missouri State

44 Mike Karney RB 5'11" 258 25 7/6/1981 3 Arizona State
32 Jamar Martin RB 5'11" 244 26 4/12/1980 3 Ohio State

Rams | Team tried to acquire M. Bennett
Tue, 1 Aug 2006 21:04:51 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the St. Louis Rams tried to trade for New Orleans Saints RB Michael Bennett, but they were turned down after reportedly offering the Saints a fourth-round pick in next year's NFL Draft. Bennett would have preferred a deal to the Rams, where Scott Linehan, his onetime offensive coordinator with the Minnesota Vikings, is the first-year head coach. New Orleans officials told Bennett and his agent that they dealt him to Kansas City because they did not want to trade him to an NFC team.

You say that now. But if Deuce is slowed and 'Saint Reggie' doesn't light up the world as a rookie, you may be wishing for some depth at that position. Stecker had an opportunity to put a stranglehold on the backup RB position last year. But it turned out the Smith carried most of the load after Deuce went down. And now Smith is gone.

Bennett certainly was good enough to be the #3 RB for the Saints. I think that the organization was simply doing him a favor by trading him. But it's not like he's going to be the man in KC. That's Larry Johnson's job.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.
