Lions Turn Down Trade Offer from Chiefs

I guess the Chiefs really don't want to use their No. 3 overall pick:

The Chiefs are apparently trying hard to move down from the number three spot. I'm hearing they offered the Lions that pick plus a fourth-round choice in return for Detroit's other first-rounder (#20) and Detroit's second-rounder (#33).

The Lions turned down the deal, obviously not wanting to hand out another gigantic contract.  Had they accepted, they could have picked Aaron Curry or even Jason Smith.  It sounds like the Rams are trying to trade their No. 2 overall pick, and if a deal happens, Mark Sanchez will be off the board.
