Seattle is looking to sign Jamie Sharper. If this were to happen, they would more than likely have to release Chad Brown, whos been the heart of that Seattle defense. What would your opinion on maybe the Chiefs having some interest in him? I would have to say I would look at him, hes better than anyone we have now, besides newly acquired Bell.

Brown would fit right in with Barber and Maz on the IR...

Isn't he around 35 in addition to having had a foot injury for the last three years or something ridiculous like that?

Like I said before, I would "look" at him.

If he can somehow pass the Chiefs inquisitionary type physical, then by all means sign him......cheap!

A big NO on the Chad Brown issue. I;m riding on the trade up for Derrick Johnson bandwagon

How do you suppose we land Derrick Johnson? In all likelihood he will be gone by the 15th pick. Would you trade up for him? What do you think it would take to get in the top 10 to take him? Our 2nd round pick will go to Miami for Surtain, so using that in a trade is out of the question. The only realistic scenario I can see is that we trade our 1st this year and our 1st next year for a top 10 pick to get DJ, and I don't know how I feel about that.

If he drops I think we could trade up in front of Detroit without giving up our 1st from next year.

Old and broken down is a discription that comes to mind.

I see no upside to Chad Brown


Of course, I said the same thing about Bam Morris and Vonnie Holliday. Look what that got me.

No to Chad Brown.

Go after Sharper, and let the Hawks keep Brown.

Chad Brown thought about signing here back when he signed with Seattle but he didnt want to live up to DT's legacy.

They already cut Simmons and let their MLB leave via FA. I don't see them cutting Brown even if they sign Sharper. But Chad was a monster in the playoff game against the Rams, even though they lost. I remember thinking that I wouldn't mind having him in KC.

yeah, I held similar thoughts like: I wouldnt mind KC being in the playoffs.

Yep, even at his age he is better than anyone we have now except Bell. My question is what aren't we looking at Sharper? Then again, I was asking myself the same thing last year about Trotter...:hmmm:

Yep after watching pently of Texans games the past few seasons I have been thinking the same thing. He is still in his prime at 30 and is a stout tackler. I have always thought he was one of the better LB's out there and am kind of suprised the possibility of him changing teams has been so quiet.

His cap number is brutal if he is traded straight up for but I he works out an new contract it wouldnt be a problem.

That cap number is not a problem anymore since the TEXANS released him. The TEXANS said he lost a step, well not publicly, but the sports talk radio here in Houston has said as much - so take it for what it's worth. IMO, the reason was that he was such a high cap number and he didn't want to regenotiate his deal. Still, even if true and he as lost a step, Sharper is a solid tackler and that's something the CHIEFS _efense could certainly use.

The only way we cut him is if he won't re-structure to free up the ability to sign Sharper.. The Seahawks prefer to keep both..


Chad Brown is likely to be released if Jamie Sharper signs with the Seahawks.
Brown, 35, has been unwilling to renegotiate his contract, which calls for $4.2 million next season. Somewhere, Bill Belichick and probably Bill Cowher are waiting to pounce on the fiery leader. He's their type of player. Apr. 9 - 11:06 pm et

Jamie Sharper wrapped up a two-day visit in Seattle, and his agent will talk deal with the team throughout the weekend. The Seahawks could have the desire and means to offer Sharper the best contract on the market. He'd play middle linebacker. While we'd downgrade him somewhat from his Houston days, Seattle is an ideal landing spot for him. Apr. 9 - 11:04 pm et

I didnt realize he had been finally cut. I also agree in that i feel it was his high cap number that lead to him being let go. IIRC he was still on the bad contact that lead to he being available in the epansion draft in the first place.

I think he is still a badass LB that just didnt fit in the Texans long term plans. They could have kept him around next season but its not like he would have made the difference in them going far in the playoffs or anything. I think they are still a building team but i also think they can be competitive next season.

Here is the question that matters: Is he an upgrade over what we have now?

Barber will not play until October. Fox or Caver, anyone? I would prefer Simmons or Sharper, but Brown may turn out to be our best option.

Still horrified at the OLB situation.
