Chiefs trade cornerback Marcus Cooper to Cardinals

On the eve of the 53-man roster deadline, the Chiefs and Cardinals have struck a trade.

Cornerback Marcus Cooper has been sent to Arizona, with Kansas City getting an undisclosed draft pick in the exchange.

The move has the potential to help both teams. Cooper wasn’t going to make the Chiefs’ roster, but now Kansas City gets a pick for him. The Cardinals wanted to add some depth to their secondary and couldn’t be sure they’d land Cooper if the Cardinals had set him free.

A 2013 seventh-round pick of the 49ers, Cooper didn’t make the 53-man roster in San Francisco as a rookie but was claimed by the Chiefs on waivers and has been in Kansas City since. Last year he played in 10 games with one start.

  1. I remember when Chiefs fans were pumping him up, making him out to be the next big thing at CB, in 2013. Then he played against Denver…lol Peyton Manning ended his career, and shut those dumb Chiefs fans up. #DenverBroncos5FiveStraightDivisionChampionships

  2. Cards fans better hope they get 2014 Cooper and not 2015 Cooper. If so this will be a great trade for them.

  3. LOL I cant wait for KC to shut those dumb donkey fans up this year good ill be surprised if they make it to .500

  4. I think it is a smart move by both teams. The Cards needed someone that could kinda be a place holder for when Honey Badger shifts into those hybrid roles. Arizona’s defense doesn’t often get the credit it deserves. Certainly one of the most versatile and stingy in the league. I know I am not SUPPOSED to like them, but it is hard to dislike ’em.

  5. ariz is going to regress

    palmer will start age-driven decline

    and mathieu will struggle to regain form post-injury

    meanwhile in div, seatt has seamlessly retooled

    book it

  6. KC drafted 3 secondary players, so the writing has been on the wall for a while now.

    Too bad, he started his time in KC with flair, was the team’s ROY. Funny he declined.

  7. I don’t think Palmer has to do this year what he did last year – they have 4 wideouts that could start for any team. David Johnson isn’t regressing. Book that!

    As for The Chefs “beating the donkeys”, maybe, maybe not. But you have Andy Reid as your coach, the guy who ran the slowest hurry-up offense in NFL history. Insensible.

    So, good luck with that and the shabby treatment of Eric Berry.

    I would get all your crowing out of the way now, cause once the season starts, the Broncos and their “QB” will not be winning many games.

    Was that the year that the Seahawks shut you dumb Donkeys fans up by embarrassing Manning in the Super Bowl?

  10. “As for The Chefs “beating the donkeys”, maybe, maybe not. But you have Andy Reid as your coach, the guy who ran the slowest hurry-up offense in NFL history. Insensible”

    And also ranks up their in win % among coaches, has 161 wins, and is 31 – 17 with Chiefs.

    I think he and his slow hurry up will be fine.

    Yeah, one of the two Super Bowls Denver has played in this decade, remind me when the last time the Chiefs made it to one….

    1970.

    What does that have to do with the Donkeys being utterly embarrassed by the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII?

    Do I need to even answer that question???
    Denver has won eight AFC Championships, and three Super Bowls since your Chiefs were last relevant

  14. Best KC-Denver game ever was first one last year. National tv, Chiefs rocking Denver, 80,000 drunk/toothless farmers screaming out of their minds in Arrowhead………………………………..and then came Peyton. Best part was the end when Fat Andy gave the game away by making a terrible call and your best offensive player, JC, fumbled without being touched. Game, set, match. Denver. God that stadium sure went quiet!

    Nope. We all know the answer, which is absolutely nothing.

    You pointed out an instance where Manning embarrassed Cooper, and I pointed out an instance where the Seahawks utterly embarrassed Manning.

    The SB records of either team are irrelevant, except for the 0 that was recorded in the loss column for that drubbing of the Donkeys at the hands of the Seahawks in SB XLVIII.

    No need to get nasty about it.

    You know why nobody takes Chiefs fans seriously? Because you are on here boasting about a Seahawks win. SB records are irrelevant? Says the fan of the team that hasn’t been to one in 40+ years.
    Fact: Denver has a better record against the Chiefs in every decade EXCEPT 1960. The Broncos own the Chiefs.
    Hope you’re ready for another let down from your 2016 KC Griefs!

  17. Seattle’s major adjustments have yet to be seen. They’re preseason was dismal. We’ll know more after week 3.

    They will be fighting the Arizona Cardinals again for the NFC West championship. I give the Card’s the advantage at this point, just like last year.👍

  18. Best KC-Denver game ever was second one last year. National tv, Chiefs rocking Denver, 80,000 drunk/toothless farmers screaming out of their minds in Pile High………………………………..and Peyton was benched in the first half so that he didn’t set the single game interception record. God that stadium sure went quiet! Best part was Peyton on the sidelines saying he wasn’t injured. Then AFTER the game the the team decided he was hurt to avoid a QB controversy.
