Breaking News: Chiefs Trade Tyler Thigpen to Dolphins

Just saw on Twitter (via @TheBigLead) that the Chiefs have traded Tyler Thigpen to the Miami Dolphins. Twitterers are citing SportsCenter.

According the (via PFT’s post about the Thigpen trade), the Thigpen-to-Dolphins trade was made in exchange for undisclosed draft choices. 


As ProFootballTalk points out, this is the second trade between Bill Parcells and his son-in-law, now the GM of the Chiefs, Scott Pioli.

Last season, Tyler Thigpen played in 14 games for Kansas City and became quite a fantasy steal in the second half of the year.  He threw for 2,608 yards, 18 TDs, and 12 INTs.

He was a 7th round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 2007.

Update 1:20pm:

ESPN’s piece is now up regarding the Thigpen trade:

The move is to have insurance behind Chad Henne, who likely will start in place ofChad Pennington.

Thigpen backing up Henne would jive with what the Dolphins have said all along: that Henne is the QB of the future.

Still, at some point this season it might tempting to give the ball to Thigpen.  Kansas City didn’t win a whole lot of games last year, but Thigpen did provide a spark to the offense and has proven that he can lead a relatively prolific attack. Henne struggled when forced into action Sunday against San Diego.

Of course, if the Dolphins lose any more games in the upcoming weeks, they will fall out of playoff contention…if they aren’t out already at 0-3. At that point, it would all about playing for the future.

What happens if the Dolphins win a few to sneak back into the picture, but Henne struggles? That could make things interesting.

Still, from a fantasy perspective at this point, Thigpen is worth nothing more than the last spot on your bench…if you have a very deep bench. Should Henne really struggle or get hurt, Thigpen would be an intriguing option based on his production from last year.
