Report: Chiefs trade Knile Davis to Packers

The Packers kicked the tires on C.J. Spiller before he went to Seattle, so they clearly felt a need at running back.

They apparently addressed it today.

According to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs have traded running back Knile Davis to the Packers.

He was surplus to needs in Kansas City once Tyreek Hill took over as the return man, since he was no better than their fourth option on offense. But in Green Bay, he has a shot to contribute.

With Eddie Lacy dealing with a problematic ankle injury and James Starks on the shelf after knee surgery, they needed depth.

  1. TT made a trade???

    Here are the career numbers for Knile Davis who is in his 4th year with the Chiefs:

    233 carries for 775 yards with a 3.3 yards per carry average and 7 fumbles.

    There might be a reason that KC was willing to let him go – since the 2014 season ended – Knile has 29 carries for 70 yards with a 2.4 YPC average.

    What did Ted trade – 100 shares of Packer stock?

  2. The Packers need to resolve what the heck is wrong with Aaron Rogers. Until that situation is figured out it they wont be in the playoff discussion.

  3. Between Rogers poor play and the inept defense, the Pack needs a lot of changes and Davis isn’t going to make that much of a difference.

  4. I wont be upset if we lose tot he Bears on Thursday. Maybe just to really drive it home to Aarron and MM that things are messed up. The way they are acting is as if nothing is wrong and if we win it will only feed that.

  5. Curious to hear what my fellow packer fans think about this move but I guess I’ll have to look for that elsewhere as this is all just MN trolls talking to each other.

  6. Could have just signed Spiller off the street but the Packers would rather trade away picks to get a washed up 4th stringer. What a bunch of buffoons going into the season with two RB’s and no one on the practice squad. Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis look real friggin’ good sitting on the end of the bench sucking their thumbs.

    TT is pure genius.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Might be a long wait.

    Most of them jumped off the bandwagon on Sunday.

    Those that didn’t are still passed out.

  8. Davis was #7 on the Chiefs for YPC this year.

    Of course when your long run for the year is minus 2 yards….

  9. If the Packers gave up very little; say a 6th rounder. I see no problem with it really. They know whether they need depth or not.

    A blind squirrel could tell they needed RB depth.

    Why didn’t TT see this coming?

  11. MIN fans are really GB fans. They just don’t know it.

    You would think they would talk more about their own ‘team’ than someone else’s right? Kinda funny.

    0 championships. 19-27 playoff record


    -The only stat that matters is a championship.

    ================================
    I think the biggest reason he was tradable was Charles, Ware and West.

  13. Packer fans…serious question here

    As shareholders you MUST have signed off on this trade right?

    RIGHT!!?

    Lol

  14. Great move! Except for Davis. KC has some good restaurants. Green Bay has Applebee’s.

    You’re too modest, Jeffrey. I’ve heard there’s some excellent meals being cooked in your humble abode.

  16. Yes, I am a creative cook, but alas, poor deKnile would have a long way to travel for a good meal, as I am in Milwaukee. But I would like to have him for dinner anytime.

  17. Big Vikings fan here! Funny he hasn’t commented yet today…

    Ya know we Viking fans have had it pretty good, riding off into the sunset and now Ted picks up this guy for a steal late round pick…got me kind of nervous. Time will tell, but it could be a nice 1-2 punch for the Pack when Lacy is healthy

  18. Big Vikes fan here. You know we fans have had it going pretty good, riding off into the sunset. Now Ted gets a steal with a late round pick. Time will tell, but makes me kind of nervous. Could be a nice 1-2 punch for the Pack when Lacy get’s healthy.

  19. Ok for real: For a late round pick this is a good move. Why didn’t the Packers grab Spiller? Newsflash: Starks didn’t have his latest injury/ surgery until after Spiller had already signed with the Seahawks. So now that we need a RB he is off the market. It’s not like Spiller has been tearing it up in Seahawk territory… he could be available again in a few weeks.

  20. Meanwhile, as a Packerfan… I think I am right there with Rodgers and his glass of scotch…This last game was played so poorly that it was painful to watch… considered following all those other former Packers over to root for the Vikings. Love em or Hate em… you cannot deny they are on Top of the league. Despite not having any running backs either. They are agressive has heck and well coached and don’t make the big mistakes. As much as Packer fans love to hate on em… They look a lot like the Patriots of the past this year…

    Packers were deep at everywhere except RB, and then the train derailed. Rodgers said “I’m back” against Detroit and then realized he was dreaming. They are just not fun to watch right now. We will be lucky to be Da Bears right now.

    What happened to the days when Defenses claimed that Rodgers stood behind the line and laughed at them all game as he shredded everything they threw at him. How do you suddenly lose your accuracy?

    Hats off to You Vikings!

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    The best part is that a lot of Minnesotans have involuntarily paid around that same $200 price in stadium taxes, and have nothing to show for it.

    The share is a common share, which means it is real. You don’t get revenues, but you are able to attend the share holders meeting and vote on certain changes.

    Uh so scared of the Packers, not. No matter what they do they’ll always suck. He won’t even make the Vikings squad bir a starter for them. Lol

    I would guess that the pft comunity, including Viking fans, don’t dislike you; we just feel sorry for you.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    You need to understand the voting power of the real shareholders vs the souvenir shareholders.

    There are only 1,940 “real” shareholders.

    All stock sold after 1950 is souvenir stock.

    There are approximately 359,000 souvenir stockholders

    If you took every share of the souvenir stock and put them all in one voting block, you wouldn’t have enough votes to equal one of the real shareholders.

    When souvenir shareholders get to vote, they get to choose which brand of toilet paper they put in the bathrooms, and that really isn’t a meaningful vote.

  24. Gonna miss Knile. Always loved his running style sans fumble. Best of luck. I think he will have success in GB. And hopefully the announcers don’t get him confused with the little brother on Frasier…. every … single …. time.
