When the Chiefs traded for offensive lineman Cameron Erving earlier this season, there were, um, some questions. After all, Erving’s time with the Cleveland Browns (after being a hot commodity in the draft and a first round selection) has been treated like something as a cautionary tale for the potential to overdraft at offensive line, a supposedly safe position.
Erving, over the course of his last two years, has played poorly enough to be eviscerated via GIFs and memes, switched positions, and basically been a gigantic disappointment to Cleveland fans (who are quite used to that kind of thing but still weren’t happy about it). During this year’s preseason Erving’s poor play continued as he was kicked out to tackle.
So we were all quite befuddled when the Chiefs decided to trade for Erving for a fifth round pick.
