We have yet to see any of the big-name veterans rumored to be on the move, such as the Cardinals’ Anquan Boldin and Browns’ Braylon Edwards, get dealt, although the talks between teams regarding potential swaps are heating up.

One of the most intriguing pieces of news on Saturday comes from the Kansas City Star, which says the Chiefs offered the Lions the third overall pick and a fourth-round pick for the Lions’ pick at No. 20 overall as well as Detroit’s second-round choice (No. 33).

The Lions rejected the offer, but you can bet the Chiefs will keep trying to move down out of the third slot. GM Scott Pioli has plenty of needs to fill and he’d like to add more picks.

Imagine if the Lions were foolish enough to accept that deal. After guaranteeing QB Matthew Stafford $41.7 million, they would have had to invest close to $30 million guaranteed to the No. 3 overall pick. More than $70 million to two players that had never taken a snap in the NFL — I think the Lions made the right call by saying no thanks to that option.
