The Kansas City Chiefs have placed the franchise tag on Dee Ford, but are willing to listen to trade offers on him.

The Chiefs intend to switch their base defensive scheme to a 4-3 under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, which likely would mean a move to defensive end for Ford, who played that position in college before moving to linebacker for Kansas City.

Ford’s franchise tag will be worth approximately $15.8 million. Ford made about $8.7 million last season after the Chiefs exercised the fifth-year option of the contract he signed as a rookie in 2014.
