The Kansas City Chiefs made news Monday by trading safety Eric Murray to the Cleveland Browns for defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah.
Ogbah was a second round draft pick for the Cleveland Browns in 2016 out of Oklahoma State. In his three seasons with the Browns, Ogbah started in all 40 games he played. He has had just 12.5 sacks over the three seasons and 122 total tackles.
Ogbah did not report for the Browns’ offseason program Monday as he was expecting to be traded. He was happy when the news of the trade broke:
Chris Jones was excited that Ogbah is joining the Chiefs:
Ogbah will likely not be a starting defensive end for the Chiefs. Breeland Speaks and the recently acquired Alex Okafor are expected to be the starters.
There appears to be some concerns about Ogbah’s abilities:
However, the Chiefs might not have given up much to get him:
Ogbah is under contract for just 2019. The Chiefs will pay him $1.35 million. They would have owed Eric Murray $2 million so the team saved around $650,000 on the cap this season.
