Laremy Tunsil to Patrick Mahomes

We bet Laremy Tunsil would love to jump from Houston to the Kansas City Chiefs to block for QB Patrick Mahomes.Are the Houston Texans trying to trade Laremy Tunsil?

Tunsil has, on the record, said all the right things about being willing to be a building block as the Texans work to lift themselves from the NFL basement. But in truth?

We bet he’d love to jump from Houston to the Kansas City Chiefs, where his work blocking for QB Patrick Mahomes might mean more title contention for the newly crowned Super Bowl champs.Writes colleague Aaron Wilson:



“Texans Pro Bowl left tackle Laremy Tunsil has been discussed in potential trade scenario with Chiefs, according to league sources. Fluid situation on whether it happens, however.”



Certainly so. But just the talks alone constitute major news, as Tunsil might be this team’s best player …

And there is a reality regarding where the Texans are as a program.

Houston is rebuilding, and while Tunsil could eventually be an important part of that. But more immediately? Maybe the Texans are of the opinion that future pieces, at affordable prices, represent a smarter – and frankly more honest – approach to the build because of how long it might truly take.



And from a Kansas City Chiefs perspective? Mahomes means the title window is very much open … and maybe KC is willing to pay a price for Laremy Tunsil to push the open window even wider.
