The Chiefs and Saints complete an interior lineman swap

New Orleans shipped former Pro Bowl guard Ben Grubbs to Kansas City before the draft. Yesterday, the two teams completed a full-on guard swap when the Saints added a former Chiefs veteran. Essentially, Kansas City traded a fifth-round pick and McGlynn for New Orlean's Grubbs.  The move to trade Grubbs saved the Saints some precious cap room, but Kansas City upgraded at a position...

Tim Lelito out to prove he is the right man for the Saints left guard spot

Tim Lelito knows he still has to fight to become the New Orleans Saints starting left guard. While some may have thought it was a foregone conclusion that he would replace Ben Grubbs in the Saints starting lineup, Lelito knows that just because a player wasn’t drafted to take the spot or no high profile free agent was signed to challenge him, it does not mean he has won the job...

Kansas City Chiefs Final 2015 Draft Big Board: New faces round out the board

1. La’El Collins Tackle/Guard, LSU (Previous Rank: 1) Nothing changes here. La’El Collins is a versatile lineman, and while some have him going as high as #10 to the Rams, his name being linked in the murder of an ex-girlfriend could have a dramatic impact on his stock. Regardless of this latest news, Collins should still be one of the first lineman taken tomorrow night.

Kansas City Chiefs extend G Ben Grubbs

The Chiefs traded a 5th round pick to the Saints for Ben Grubbs last week. I said it was a decent move for the guard needy Chiefs because, while Grubbs did grade below average last season and while he is going into his age 31 season, he graded out as a top-16 guard from 2009-2013. His salary for 2015 was scheduled to be 6.6 million, but he wasn’t guaranteed anything beyond 2015...

New Orleans Saints trade G Ben Grubbs to the Kansas City Chiefs

Trade for Saints: The Saints came into the off-season in rough shape cap wise. Getting rid of Grubbs hurts, but it’s an understandable move. Grubbs was a top-16 guard on Pro Football Focus for 5 straight seasons from 2009-2013, but graded out slightly below average last season and now he’s going into his age 31 season. The Saints save 6.6 million in cash and 3.6 million on the...

Maybe it’s just because we saw so much improvement in the defense department and tend to focus on Drew and the running game...
