In a move that comes as no surprise, safety Jarrad Page has requested a trade from the Chiefs. Page is an unsigned restricted free agent who has stayed away from the team all offseason. He finished last season on the mend with a injured calf, but before that had been benched and relegated to Todd Haley’s doghouse.
Page is a bit stiff athletically. His lack of speed can be an issue, particularly in coverage. He’s thick enough to play in the box but has never been a consistent playmaker. The Chiefs have plenty of reasons to oblige his request, though Haley may not be inclined to let the disgruntled fifth-year pro appear to be calling the shots.
