The unexpected news: they are going to listen to trade offers for the sixth-year pass rusher, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports (on Twitter).

Kansas City is shifting to a 4-3 defense, and although Ford played defensive end at Auburn, the Chiefs are evidently willing to explore trading one or both of their edge defenders. Justin Houston trade rumors emerged this week as well.

Ford has not enjoyed a consistent career. He did not see the field much as a rookie and was an injury replacement for Houston for a period during his second season. In 2016, Ford broke out with 10 sacks, and the Chiefs picked up his fifth-year option. However, an injury ended Ford’s 2017 season early, and that option vested because he was not healthy enough to pass a physical last year.

The soon-to-be 28-year-old pass rusher, however, delivered his best season in his contract year, registering 13 sacks and forcing seven fumbles. He is now in line for a $17 million payment, once he signs his franchise tender.
