OT Jammal Brown Says Chiefs Were Interested In Him

There's some unrest from a segment of the Kansas City Chiefs fan base that feels the Chiefs aren't being very active in free agency by failing to address some needs. Let me say that I feel your pain. This is arguably the most exciting time of year in football and there's just not a lot of action from One Arrowhead Drive relative to other teams, like the Philadelphia Eagles.

I'd also remind you that there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes in free agency that we don't know about. For example, the Chiefs tried to sign LB Scott Shanle from the New Orleans Saints but lost out. They made up for it by reportedly signing LB Brandon Siler from the San Diego Chargers this weekend.

Then there's this nugget -- KC tried to sign OT Jammal Brown, former Saints and current Washington Redskins offensive tackle. This comes Rich Campbell of the Washington Times who just spoke with Brown.

He ultimately decided on a five-year deal with the Redskins but tells Campbell that he chose Washington over the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears and...Chiefs.

What this tells us is that the Chiefs are willing to search for an upgrade at Barry Richardson's spot at right tackle. We'll see if they actually make a move there but Brown's comments suggest that it's at least on their radar.

It's probably time to check out what's out there on the offensive tackle market.
