MIKE VRABEL TRADED TO CHIEFS

Mike Vrabel has been traded to the Kansas City Chiefs. Let that sink in for a minute….okay. The Boston Herald is reporting the deal is done. This story is just breaking so there’s no word on what the Patriots would get if the deal is made (though WEEI.com says it could be for an undisclosed draft pick).

From Boston.com:

In response to an email that asked, “Have you been traded to the Kansas City Chiefs?”

Vrabel responed with a one word answer: “Yes.”

Of course, former Patriots personnel Czar Scott Pioli is the new GM of the Chiefs, and it’s possible the Patriots – who have a lot of options at OLB – could be looking to stockpile draft picks.

My Take: Shocking news to say the least. It’ll be very interesting to see what the Patriots do to fill the void (Ray Lewis/Jason Taylor anyone?). They do have a lot of youth and depth at outside linebacker, but Vrabel still has a lot of good years left.
