Jared from Portland wants to know if the Chiefs could go after veterans Marvin Harrison or Derrick Brooks now that Jason Taylor is off the market.

BW: Taylor would have been a good fit in Kansas City and I think Harrison would be a nice fit as well. But I'm not sure if he would want to go to a team where they need to rebuild. Brooks may not fit because the Chiefs are set at linebacker.


Big J from Sacramento wants to know if the Chiefs will spend some of that 30 million in salary-cap room.

BW: There may be a guy or two coming, but the free-agent market is thin. There is not a ton of high-impact players out there.


Raphael from Paris, France, wants to know if the Chargers could look at Mike Brown, who was recently cut by Chicago.

BW: I wouldn't be shocked if there is a marriage sometime before camp. I'm not expecting it, but there are some connections here. Brown played for San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera in Chicago and I know his name has been discussed in San Diego. But the Chargers may give sixth-round pick Kevin Ellison a chance to compete for a key role.


Joe from Los Angeles wants the Broncos to sign Graham Harrell, the former Texas Tech star.

BW: Harrell tried out at Cleveland's minicamp. He is still unsigned. I know the Broncos liked him before the draft, but Denver picked Fresno State's Tom Brandstater. So, it may be a little crowded in Denver's quarterbacks meeting room.
