"Ah, crap."

That was Andy Reid's reaction when informed of Kansas City's final take in a six-team trade that saw the Chiefs trade the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

"How did this happen," asked the Chiefs head coach to the rest of the front office staff. "I thought we had two first rounders and three second rounders out of this?"

No one had an explanation. An intern named Kevin eventually piped up.

"It looks like early on in the trade we did have those picks, but then they were moved on to complete other aspects of the six-team deal as were all of our other picks in every other round," said Kevin. "And we forgot to get anything back except … it looks like a 7th rounder in 2015 from the Falcons."

Reid then called the league office to try to cancel the trade, but it had already been officially submitted and accepted.

"Ah, crap," said Reid again. "Sorry to the fans. This is kind of embarrassing. We'll try to make this right."

Reid then tried to work the phones to flip his extra 7th rounder in 2015 for this year's No. 1 overall pick, but was unsuccessful.
