Dolphins trade safety Jordan Lucas to the Chiefs

The Chiefs needed some help in the defensive secondary, and they’ve gotten it.

Via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have traded safety Jordan Lucas to Kansas City.

A sixth-rounder in 2016, Lucas will net a seventh-round pick in 2019 for the Dolphins.

He’s the latest example of a guy who would have been cut, if he hadn’t been traded. Look for more moves like this over the next day, with teams having needs and a fairly low spot in the pecking order for waivers giving up a late-round pick to get a guy they likely wouldn’t sniff, if he ended up on the waiver wire.

  1. same terms as the patriots-to-falcons jordan richards trade from earlier today… 2020 7th rounders must be the going rate for terrible safeties these days

    Except for the fact that Jordan Richards was a 2nd rd pick and Lucas was a 6th….and Miami got a 2019 pick.

  3. Good move on the part of Miami. He would of been cut and instead got some value in return.
    Decent DB but will never be a starter.

  4. Had an INT and made some plays last night.
    Likes to hustle and a good special teams guy.
    Hate to see him leave our depth chart,
    but at least we got something for him.

  5. He’ll be a very good player with some seasoning … just not quite ready yet … Chiefs will be happy if they’re patient.
