While the first week of free agency may garner the headlines, the second wave is when most of the holes are filled. In Kansas City, it's no different.
Of course, we're not the only ones interested.
With the free-agent market for cornerbacks drying up a bit, Travis Daniels is an intriguing name to keep an eye on. The ex-Brown and Dolphin has drawn interest from the Patriots and Chiefs.
Daniels is a former LSU Tiger recruited by Nick Saban, whom also made him a fourth draft pick upon taking the head coaching gig with the Miami Dolphins in 2005.
Daniels signed a four year rookie deal spending the first three with the Dolphins until the Cleveland Browns surrendered a 7th rounder in a trade for his services.
He's got a minor injury history, missing all of preseason and the first four games of the 2008 season. He's appeared in 47 games, with 25 starts, accumulating three interceptions, 93 tackles and 20 passes defensed.
Part of the reason the Chiefs be interested in Daniels is because of what is dubbed around here as the Chiefs Connection.
- Nick Saban recruited him and coached him at Miami. Saban coached under Bill Belichick in Cleveland (when Scott Pioli was also employed by the Browns)
- Cleveland coach Romeo Crennel, who coached under Belichick and Pioli in New England, traded for him prior to the 2008 campaign.
Those are the two main connections and a reason to keep an eye on Daniels in the coming days and weeks.
