Before Jamaal Charles was one of the most explosive players in football, he was a young player that struggled to pick up the Chiefs offense quickly.
He was fourth on the depth chart during the 2009 offseason when Todd Haley took over, so the Redskins came calling to see if the Chiefs would move Charles. Vinny Cerrato said on his radio station Friday that the Redskins offered a fourth-round pick.
According to Cerrato (via the Kansas City Star), the Chiefs countered by asking for third-round pick. The Redskins said no and talks fizzled.
Doh. From the Chiefs perspective, sometimes the best trades are the ones you don’t make. We’re reminded here of the time the Redskins offered two first-round picks for Chad Ochocinco, and the Bengals said no.
We miss the Vinny Cerrato era.
