NFL Draft Rumor: New York Jets Could Trade Up With Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have been rumored to want to trade back leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft, while the New York Jets have been listed on the other side of that coin. The two might be able to strike a deal according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini.

From the ESPN rumor page, “Rich Cimini of reports that the Jets are exploring a trade that would put them in place to draft Syracuse product Chandler Jones, a DE/OLB that would certainly fill a significant need. The Bills (at No. 10), Chiefs (No. 11) and Seahawks (at No. 12) appear to be potential destinations.”

The Chiefs traded back last season from No. 21 to 27 and grabbed a third round pick in the process. Scott Pioli used both picks to take Jon Baldwin at receiver and Justin Houston at outside linebacker. The Chiefs would need more than a third to move back to the Jets’ spot at No. 16.
