Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>"Trade Sneed" Mock 2/24/2024
kccrow 11:22 PM 02-24-2024
I was asked for my interpretation of keeping Jones and then tagging and trading Sneed. It's always a crapshoot on the valuation of any player, both from a contract perspective and a trade value perspective. I give Sneed a 2nd + 4th value but the teams I have as most ideal targets don't have 4th rounders (PHI, DET). I'm opting to give you guys the trade with Detroit as I think they have an incentive to make a splash or two in FA and they definitely MUST upgrade their secondary. Also, for notation purposes, the carrying cost of Sneed on the tag is $19,802,000 until he's traded which will invariably affect early free agency options. With that...

Cap for 2024 has been set at 255.4m and Chiefs have an approximate current space of 18.2m

OC Creed Humphrey 5y/67.5m w/8.75m SB Cap hits: 3.5/9.5/12.5/13.5/14.5/15.8 (+1.75)


WR Marquez Valdez-Scantling (-12.0)

Chiefs trade WR Kadarius Toney to anyone for a conditional 2025 7th-round pick (-2.53)
Chiefs tag and trade CB L'Jarius Sneed and 3-95 to the Detroit Lions for pick 2-61 and 3-73 (f/MIN)

QB Patrick Mahomes convert roster bonus to signing bonus (-27.47m)

FA Re-Signings
DT Chris Jones 3y/84.1m w/20.0m SB + 2.0m/y in LTBE incentives to create 3/90.1m contract Cap Hits: 22.8/27.8/30.7/4.8/4.0
LT Donovan Smith 1y/10.0m w/3.0m SB
WR Mecole Hardman 3y/15.0m w/5.1m SB Cap Hits: 3.5/5.5/6.0
LB Drue Tranquill 2y/9.0m w/3.0M SB Cap Hits: 3.3/5.7

Chiefs let the rest walk

FA Signings
SP Matt Araiza 795k (signed, not sure of the overall yet)
QB Carson Wentz (LAR) 1y/1.4m - Better backup QB
WR Van Jefferson (ATL) 1y/1.3m - Solid speed/size combo James replacement
TE Harrison Bryant (CLE) 1y/1.8m - Good blocker and better receiver to replace Bell
DE Yetur Gross-Matos (CAR) 1y/2.5m - Good rotational end that would replace Omenihu (until he's ready to go)

Draft class valuation of 9.6m with top-51 estimate of 3.3m

Chiefs have an estimated 3.5m in 2024 in-season Operating Cap

The Draft

3-073. DT Maason Smith, LSU (6'5" 315) - Raw, toolsy DT that can play the 3 or the 1 to replace Nnadi
4-133. DT DeWayne Carter, Duke (6'3" 308) - Penetrating DT that can play both spots to replace Wharton
5-158. LB Nathaniel Watson, Mississippi St (6'2" 245) - Physical, downhill LB with good speed to replace Gay
5-172. RB Emani Bailey, TCU - Speedy, do-it-all back and McKinnon replacement
