In a shocking move, the Patriots have dealt veteran OLB to the Kansas City Chiefs and the Patriots old VP of Player Personnel, Scott Pioli. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but compensation appears to be draft picks.
Vrabel, who led the team in 2007 with 12.5 sacks, was scheduled to count $4.4 million dollars against the cap. However, due to signing bonus amortization, the Patriots will only realize a little of $3 million in cap savings.
At a position that was already thin on talent, Vrabel’s departure really puts OLB as the #1 area of concern for the 2009 off-season.
