Chiefs Were Reportedly Close To Trade With Seahawks For Earl Thomas Before He Broke His Leg

Earl Thomas was reportedly on his way to becoming a Kansas City Chief up until breaking his leg Sunday in his game against the Cardinals.

Not only was the news devastating for Thomas and the Seahawks, it was also bad news for the Cowboys and especially the Chiefs, both potential trade partners with Seattle who were seeking to acquire Thomas.

Thomas, who was in the final year of his contract, made it known he wanted either an extension or a trade before the season, holding out all the way until the start of the regular season. The Seahawks front office, unwilling to give the deal the safety wanted, left an eventual trade as the only possibility for the team to get something in return for Thomas, who would have walked after the season.

According to a report from Yahoo!’s Terez Paylor, the Chiefs could have been that trade partner.

The senior NFL write says Kansas City and Seattle were getting close to a deal and there was optimism that one would’ve been completed in the next couple weeks. That of course came to a close with Thomas’ injury.

Paylor also noted that although the two teams couldn’t agree on a trade this past week, the two sides were inching closer toward a deal and there was internal optimism something would be struck before the deadline.

The Chiefs, who were reportedly aggravated at the situation, find themselves looking elsewhere for a star defensive player that will help bolster a defense not quite up to pair with the other side of the ball in Kansas City.
