NFL Free Agency: Did Jammal Brown Tip Chiefs Hand On Search For Offensive Tackles?

The big news surrounding Jammal Brown this weekend was the five-year deal he signed to man right tackle along the Washington Redskins offensive front. But when he began to discuss the other teams that revealed an interest, he also might have tipped Scott Pioli's hand on where he's looking next.

Arrowhead Pride recently posted a column that detailed Brown's free agency adventure which included the Chiefs among several teams (Cardinals and Bears were listed as well) interested. Last year, Barry Richardson manned the right tackle position that Pioli avoided in the NFL Draft, which led some to believe that Pioli might be fine with B-Rich at that spot. But his pursuit of Brown makes it seem otherwise.

Richardson will certainly be in the mix to start and provide depth at tackle, but it's possible that Pioli follows this up with a tap on the New England shoulder for old starters like Nick Kaczur or Matt Light. Sean Locklear is also a possibility. Then again, it's likely a few more cuts will come from around the NFL to open up new possibilities. After all, names like LB Lofa Tatupu and C Olin Kreutz both came out just today.
