Scott Pioli Is Hopeful Chiefs Can Bring Back Brandon Carr

The biggest free agent on the Kansas City Chiefs roster is cornerback Brandon Carr. Carr is going to be pursued by a lot of NFL teams once free agency begins on March 12. Chiefs general manager Scot Pioli is at the NFL Combine and he talked about the possibility of retaining Carr:

''We're going to continue to talk to Brandon and his agent,'' Pioli said. ''If we can come to a deal that makes sense for both sides, then hopefully we'll be able to keep him here.''

The Chiefs just signed cornerback Stanford Routt to a three-year, $19 million deal, so the finances need to be just right if the Chiefs can retain Carr. Last season the Chiefs extended Brandon Flowers contract for five years with an average salary of $9.75 million, so that is another reason the Chiefs may have to get creative with their salary cap to have Carr in a Chiefs jersey in 2012 and beyond.
