Former Chicago Bears safety Mike Brown will be in Kansas City for a visit with the Chiefs today.
If the Chiefs signed Brown it would reunite him with Todd Haley, who was the Bears’ receivers coach from 2001-03.
Brown has been a free agent for three months, ever since the Bears let his contract expire. Brown told a league source he is motivated to prove he remains a starting-caliber player. His injury history included a torn ACL in the 2007 season opener at San Diego.
While injuries have kept the 31-year-old Brown out of 44 games over the last five seasons, Brown made 15 starts in 2008 and had 101 tackles, the 3rd highest total in his career and the most since 2002. If the Chiefs signed Brown he could push both Jarrad Page and Bernard Pollard for playing time.
I would happily welcome Brown to Kansas City. The only thing that raises a flag for me, other than the injury history, is that the Bears have very little quality at safety and still decided to let Brown walk. I would feel a lot better about our depth at safety if Mike Brown was back there instead of Jon McGraw or DaJuan Morgan.
