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.
