    Boy, I could see a first and a third, but a first and a second in a draft is a steep price to pay.

    A first next year and our third rounders for the next two years would probably be my limit.

      What about dealing our 1st and 4th and a 2nd in 09? Seems like it would give the Chiefs what they want with two picks in this years and the Vikings still have 3 picks in the first 3 rounds....

            I think since that trade the Vikes have been passive in the area of blockbuster trades.

            They gotta be aggressive here though.

            Chris Doleman, guys. He was our last competent end. Pathetic.

              Lol, god that trade was bad. At the least, it would probably take the Chiefs longer to turn our picks into a championship team if everything goes to hell this time around...so there is an upside to it!

                  To top it off Mike Lynn got re-imbursed by the team after he left for assisting with the Metrodome Deal. So He makes that trade, sells to Red McCombs, and still gets paid for it all. I could shoot that S.O.B.!

                    ALLEN’S HISTORY HAMPERS NEGOTIATIONS
                    Posted by Mike Florio on April 17, 2008, 11:04 p.m.
                    As teams like the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers explore the possibility of working out a long-term deal with the Kansas City Chiefs for franchise-tagged defensive end Jared Allen, the looming concern is Allen’s two prior DUI arrests, which culminated in a four-game suspension in 2007 that Commissioner Roger Goodell eventually cut in half.

                    And due to the elimination from the 2006 revisions to the Collective Bargaining Agreement of sweeping signing bonus forfeiture provisions, any team that gives Allen a huge chunk of guaranteed money will be able to recover only a limited amount of the cash if Allen, for example, celebrates his new contract by bending an elbow moments before driving a car.

                    So with Allen wanting $30 million in guaranteed money, there’s simply no way for any team to get adequate protection. The easiest (and perhaps only) way for a team to ensure that it doesn’t get burned is to dump a bunch of the money into annual roster bonuses and/or salaries that are guaranteed for injury only. Then, if Allen acts up in any given year, he can be cut and the future financial obligations can be avoided.

                    Whether Allen has really put his past in his behind (or something), no one really knows. Bucs running back Michael Bennett has vouched for his former Chiefs teammate, according to our friends at Pewter Report: “Jared has really matured and he’s over that,” Bennett said. “I’ve been around the guy and know how serious he takes his job. A lot of people make mistakes and we learn from them.”

                    But then there’s the little issue of Allen’s restaurant/bar. It’s called Club 69. And if the double-entendre based on Allen’s jersey number wasn’t enough, the club’s far less subtle motto is “Wine ‘Em, Dine ‘Em, 69 ‘Em.”

                    Yeah, Jared has matured.

                    Look, he’s a dominant player. He’s arguably one of the best defensive ends in the game. But if this guy thinks that anyone is going to make a huge financial investment without finding a way to protect itself against him having another run-in with alcohol, then perhaps he already has had one.

                      Duane Clemons and Derrick Alexander would like to have a word with you as well.

                      Warren Sapp, however, is smoking weed and laughing. Lucky bastard.


                      I hear we offered him 8/$71 mill....not bad for a 26yearold DE with a slightly lower Kampman-motor and better skills. I hope we don't have to throw in this year's 2nd though for "Wine 'em, dine 'em, 69 'em"...you stay classy, Jared.

                      Jared?

                      Ya there?

                      He's passed out drunk in a ditch, I see.

                        Lance Johnstone wasn't great, but he was competent.
