Nolan Nawrocki at Profootballweekly.com indicated the Chiefs are in trade talks: From what I'm (Nolan) told, there has been ongoing discussion in Kansas City since the start of free agency about shipping franchised DE Jared Allen to a number of suitors, including Minnesota, Jacksonville or Tampa Bay, in exchange for draft picks. However, if the deal were to occur, it would seem the Chiefs would want the comfort of being able to replace him in the draft. Depending on whether the right defensive end is available at the No. 5 position, a move may not be made until Draft Day. If it does happen, the Chiefs would wind up with an additional first-round pick to address their most pressing need, on the offensive line. However, at this point, with how long negotiations have lingered, there may not be any trade. Regardless of Allen, the Chiefs have also been heavily exploring options to move down from the fifth overall slot, where they would be reaching for an offensive lineman. They would like to acquire more picks to fill the many needs they have, especially on both lines. They want the #17 pick? Here. Take it.
