The 5 O'Clock Club: Playing GM - What Chief would you want?

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere...

The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.

The Redskins are back on the road west for a second-consecutive prime time game — this one on Monday night. After taking the wrecking ball to the LA Raiders on Sunday night, this week’s opponent was an AFC wildcard playoff team last season; they were opening week Patriot-slayers, and are now currently undefeated; they are the Kansas City Chiefs — a team that many people expect to see in the AFC Championship game in January.

Following this tough Monday night contest, the Redskins will have a bye week before playing host to Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers in Week 6.

If you were the Redskins GM (do we even have one?) looking down the Raiders roster, if you could wave a magic wand and make a favorable trade happen — in effect, simply pluck a player from Kansas City and put him on the Redskins team — which one player would you choose?

Share your ideas in the comments.
