Bills fans meltdown Chiefs trade up Xavier Worthy

Buffalo Bills GM praised for bold draft-day trade with Chiefs, but fans upset as Kansas City selects coveted player.

Buffalo News columnist praised Bills general manager Brandon Beane for his bold move in making a draft-day trade with the Chiefs. However, fans had a different reaction to the news. The Chiefs traded up four spots in the first round of the NFL Draft and selected Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy with the 28th overall pick that was originally held by the Bills. Beane explained his reasoning for the trade, but Bills fans were not pleased.

The history between the Chiefs and Bills sheds light on why fans were upset. The Chiefs have knocked Buffalo out of the playoffs in three of the last four seasons, and a previous trade with the Chiefs brought star quarterback Patrick Mahomes to Kansas City. In the 2017 NFL Draft, the Chiefs moved up to select Mahomes with the 10th overall pick, which had been owned by the Bills.

As a result, fans in upstate New York were in distress following the recent trade. Some members of the Bills Mafia expressed their frustration on social media platforms like X and Reddit. Many fans were worried about the Chiefs adding another dynamic playmaker to their roster, drawing comparisons to star receiver Tyreek Hill.

One fan on Reddit wrote, "The Chiefs always seem to make moves that result in success for them. They are playing 4D chess while the rest of us are playing checkers." Another fan joked, "Maybe we all need group therapy after this trade."

The sentiment among fans was that facilitating a trade that allowed the Chiefs to acquire Worthy was a haunting reminder of the past trade that brought Mahomes to Kansas City. Fans expressed concerns about the potential impact of Worthy's success with the Chiefs and how it could further solidify their dominance in the league.

Overall, the reaction from Bills fans to the draft-day trade with the Chiefs was one of disappointment and apprehension. Many fans felt that the trade could potentially benefit Kansas City in the long run, adding to the rivalry between the two teams.
