Dee Ford Traded to 49’ers

 284 replies

Tuesday evening reports began circulating that the Chiefs and 49’ers were in deep talks to finalize a trade that would send break out pass rusher Dee Ford to San Francisco.

It has now been confirmed. Dee Ford is going to San Francisco, he better wear some flowers in his hair. The move clears $15.4 Mil in cap space for the Chiefs, giving them room to sign more backup level linebackers from Dallas and effectively dismantles two thirds of the NFL’s best pass rush from 2018. All for the cost of a bag of peanuts 2020 2nd round draft pick. As in, next year.

Time’s yours.

We Will Update as More Information Becomes Available

So the Jets are relevant for a day. At the price of long term mediocrity

So glad my Chiefs don’t have to fight for headlines in NY

Neither Ford nor JH really fitting well with a 4-3. A young JH might but Ford really doesn’t. A 2 ND round pick is good considering the trade only saves us money and allot of it.

I don’t know what to feel about it. Can you expect Ford to be what he was last year again this year? Can you expect a “great looking” drafted rusher or DB to have an effective impact immediately? All I can say is that Svengoolie’s system better pump out some serious production, because otherwise we just have the same gambling Sutton gave us. If you don’t know for sure about what a guy can give you, it’s not plug and play, it’s pick a number and spin the wheel. I know you always gamble because of potential anomalies like injury and off the field problems, but guessing won’t get rings if all you do is switch the suck from the secondary to the front line. In the sentiments of Mahomes, “We aren’t going to keep losing like this!”

There are some really intriguing pass rushers in the draft. Not just those listed as EDGE players but some interior guys who can be moved around the defensive front. I’m reasonably certain Speaks will be better with a year under his belt and returning to his natural position of slot receiver (okay, defensive end). KPass is still an unknown, and Veach may not be done in FA yet. I was in the “dump Houston or Ford, but not both” camp. But the more I think about it, the more comfortable I am with moving on from both of our 3-4 OLB’s.

Yep, lots of really good defensive players in this draft. I’ve seen a lot of speculation about the Chiefs picking a DB, but I wouldn’t be surprised by a DL/DE. Hell, Veach may already have a plan to move up and grab his guy.

Yep that 2nd rd pick could be ammo to move up!

So glad we have Brett Veach out here playing 8 dimensional chest with Trump. It only looks like all his moves are garbage, but really everyone is just playing into his hands, see?

Seriously, WTF? We are supposedly improving the defense by dismantling the only part of it that wasn’t a fucking dumpster fire? And for NEXT YEARS 2nd?! Just let him walk and we get a 3rd next year. And wouldn’t have had to cut Houston that way. This is very stupid. If it had been a haul ala what NY got for OBJ, fine, but Veach has yet to make a move that doesn’t suck. (Mathieu is fine, but $30 million is safeties is too damn much)

So you don’t think Spags knows what guys he needs for his own defense?

Armychiefj
Armychiefj

If Spags doesn’t think he needs pass rushers or the top rated edge rusher per pff, then I understand why his defenses have been garbage for the past decade other than one good year with the Giants.

Lol. No thanks, but just because Sutton sucked doesn’t mean Spags is great. Evidence over the past decade is sketchy at best.

Fair enough. But I’m not gonna start getting too worried about the roster in March.

A couple points about compensation picks
1) they aren’t guaranteed- the Mathew signing wiped out compensation for Morse. You have to lose in FA to get them (see: Baltimore)
2) they are after the round listed. So a 3rd round compensation pick is really more of an early 4th

Well he won’t be offsides in the 2019 afc championship game. I don’t mind this a bit. We had a horrible D last year. Our vaunted top pass rush wasn’t worth a wooden nickel vs. Brady. Or really any of the top QBs.

Couldn’t stop the run for shit. That’s what doomed us.

Welp, we have no pass rush. This is not the time for Andy to be hands off with the defense. Sure is gonna be interesting to see how this plays out.

What, historically, has Andy done well by being hands ON with the defense? We have a plan, we have a scheme change… it’s going to be awkward for fans but we’re better off.

The last time it was awkward for Chiefs fans was when they traded a true QB in Alex Smith for an unknown 2nd year QB…

How did that work out again?

Uh…Andy is the HC not OC, and responsible for both sides of the ball. Obviously we have a plan. Heck, we’d be better off implementing your plan and hire you as DC, so what’s your point?

Ford ended his best season with his least productive game. He had no sacks or tackles in the Chiefs’ AFC Championship Game home loss to the New England Patriots. He also was penalized for lining up offside on a play that resulted in an interception in the final minute of the fourth quarter.

The interception could have allowed the Chiefs, who had a four-point lead at the time, to run out the clock. Instead, the Patriots continued their drive to a go-ahead touchdown and eventually won in overtime.

You guys are a bunch of jerks. Moving and shit and this breaks, and not one phone call. Phone blew up with the twitter blasts and I ignored them. A phone call and I would have noticed.

Peterson is probably more realistic considering the state of those two teams. The Jags want to win now, but I’m sure the Cardinals would be happy to get a draft pick considering Peterson is 29 and will be on the wrong side of 30 by the time they’re ready to compete.

Didn’t they make him off-limits last year during the trade period?

They have a different HC now, so they may feel differently.

Right? It’s almost as if he’s overpaid for players at another franchise previously and was then given the boot for mostly that reason.
