Are the Denver Broncos Looking at Former Kansas City Chiefs CB Patrick Surtain?

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Denver Broncos are being linked to former Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Patrick Surtain.  Here's the quick blurb on Surtain:

Among other cornerbacks unemployed: ex-Dolphins Sam Madison (a guest instructor recently for Miami's Lingerie Football League team) and Patrick Surtain (has been linked to Denver).

After reading this I did a quick Google search and found nothing linking Surtain and the Broncos.  But don't dismiss the report so quickly.  Surtain played in Miami for seven years before coming to Kansas City so Mr. Jackson could be in a position to know.

Intra-divisional signings can be important because a player would bring with him an intimate knowledge of his previous team's inner-workings.  Things like playbook language and knowledge of defensive and offensive formations can be vital, especially to teams playing each other twice a year.

In fact, the Patriots, coincidentally (or not) the former employer for both Scott Pioli and Josh McDaniels, were known for signing players who previously played for their opponent in the week coming up.

This isn't the first time, however, that the Chiefs and Broncos have taken a look-see at one another's players.   Casey Wiegmann played in Kansas City for seven years before heading to Denver.  Before the Chiefs made the move for Cassel, the Broncos were trying to make a deal for him.  

Here are a few other moves I recall these two teams making recently:

So, don't be surprised if Surtain does end up in Denver this season.  It wouldn't be the first time the Broncos called up a former Chief.
