Report: Seahawks WR Nate Burleson On The Chiefs Radar

New, comments

Update: Burleson has signed with the Detroit Lions.

Seattle Seahawks WR Nate Burleson will become an unrestricted free agent as of 11:01 PM (CST) this evening.  According to the National Football Post, the Kansas City Chiefs will be keeping an eye on him.

National Football Post has learned that Burleson is on the radar of the following teams: the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He could also potentially re-sign with Seattle depending on what kind of offers he garners when the free agent signing period begins after midnight.

NFP also speculates -- but doesn't cite sources -- that the Washington Redskins (of course) and Cincinnati Bengals could be in the mix considering their roster moves today.

Last season he caught 63 passes for 812 yards and three touchdowns.

Burleson, 28, was a third round draft pick by the Vikings in 2003.  In 2006 he moved to the Seattle Seahawks with a $49 million contract. His career best season came in 2004, his second in the NFL, catching 68 balls for 1,006 yards and nine touchdowns.

Chiefs head coach Todd Haley has said on numerous occasions that the receiver position will be looked at very closely in free agency and the draft.
