The Green Bay Packers are repeatedly interested in acquiring Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Dee Ford. He was recently franchise-tagged by the Chiefs.

Spags is expected to run a 4-3 defensive scheme. Presently, under Bob Sutton, before he was fired following the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots, Chiefs defense was a 3-4.
The Packers are reportedly not the only team interested in Ford. The San Francisco 49ers are also interested in his services.
Ford could potentially be acquired for a second-round draft pick. He would play under a one-year tender and his new team would have to sign him to a long-term agreement.
The 27-year-old Odenville, Alabama native has spent the last five seasons with the Chiefs. He started all 16 games for the team in 2018.
He had 55 tackles, including 13 tackles for a loss, and a career-best 29 quarterback hits. He also had a career-best 13.0 sacks and another career-best with seven forced fumbles.
