re: Auburn in the NFL
And apparently KC is moving to a 4-3 and KC are putting him and Justin Houston on the trading block. There is still a good chance that Ford’s still going to be on the move.

True.

I wonder what the franchise figure is for the top 3-4 OLBs in 2019? I would bet its around 16M to 18M.

Now that they’re going to 4-3, they should pay him as a DE to be honest and DEs are worth more.

See my edit upstream.

If they are going 4-3 then they need to move Ford not just for Dee’s sake but their own.

At 250 lbs, Dee playing with his hand on the ground against NFL OTs will not be a happy story, most especially against the run. It will be a waste of $15-17M by KC from the franchise tag and will destroy future contract value for Dee. For gods sake I hope they trade him. Undersized 4-3 DEs in the NFL are generally the stories of Shakesperean tragedy.

I totally agree and well said. The Chiefs were one Ford screwup away from being in the SB. Not sure why they felt it was necessary to hire a DC with a different scheme.

Yeah there are no successful DEs at his size.

Agreed.

34 > 43

If I were KC, I would’ve hired another DC that also called a 34 defense. It’ll be harder for them to transition from a 34 to a 43, whereas adding a few more pieces and different mindset to the same defense could have made for an easier transition.

re: Auburn in the NFL
https://www.pro-football-reference.com/years/2018/defense.htm#defense::17

Of the top 20 sack leaders in the NFL in 2018, 11 were listed as either full-time or part-time DEs.

Only one was listed as playing at or near 250 lbs (Danielle Hunter).

ONE.

And that one (Hunter)has been inconsistent from year to year. He is also well known to (as I’ve pointed out for undersized 4-3 DEs) suck defending the run.

4-3 DEs that weigh 250 lbs in *today’s* NFL are, in general, disasters waiting to happen considering that OT size in the NFL averages around 310 lb. That’s why you put guys that size (see: Khalil Mack, Von Miller, and yes Dee Ford) at 3-4 OLB where their speed becomes a nightmare for NFL OTs. Putting those guy’s hands on the ground lined up right off the shoulder of a 320 lb OT is a ridiculously stupid thing to do.

Ford has played in a 4-3 at Auburn, so he is familiar w how to play it, if KC is sure they want to put him there in there future plans.

I'm for my Steelers getting him, for their 3-4, but their need is at LB totally and CB. Ford at his price is so much more productive than what Steelers are getting from Dupree for 9+ mil...

re: Auburn in the NFL
The primary function of a tag is to secure a player’s rights. Chiefs had an option to tag him, in which they’re able to control him for one year and approximately 15 million.

Ford ultimately is worth 87.5 over 5 years ( 17.5/yr). Which means the Chiefs have significant trade value. So they trade Ford for a second round pick and save the cap space for a younger option

Sounds like the #49ers will give Dee Ford a multi-year deal once the trade becomes official in the line of 5 years/$87.5M, per source.

I’m late. Sorry since already posted.

Definitely beats a one year, 16.5 million dollar deal

Good for Dee. Well deserved. What a story also considering where he started.
