The Kansas City Chiefs (nor any other NFL team for that matter) didn’t want to add cornerback Leigh Bodden to the roster, so the one-time New England Patriot is now a free agent. Bodden was in the second year of a four-year, $22 million contract, so other teams should be interested now that he’s cleared waivers and will need a new deal. That’s frustrating for Bodden, but the contract was likely cost-prohibitive for many teams, such as the Chiefs who only have $30 million under the cap to spend. </sarcasm>â†µ
On a serious note, Bodden is an intriguing option for teams who need depth in the secondary (i.e. most teams in this pass-happy NFL season). Just last season he had 5 interceptions in 14 games started for the Pats.
