Brandon Carr Could Leave Kansas City Chiefs For Detroit Lions

The Kansas City Chiefs have several moves they need to make this off-season but the two greatest ones come down to keeping players in house on both sides of the ball. Dwayne Bowe is a free agent at wide receiver and Brandon Carr is also available at cornerback. Given the young talent in the secondary, it's crucial the Chiefs resign Carr to compete at a high level defensively, especially with Eric Berry returning from injury next season.

Yet in a recent interview, Carr says there are other teams as a possibility for his services -- particularly his hometown Detroit Lions. Certainly former Chiefs defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham would love to add him to the secondary there in Detroi.

"I don't really want to talk about contracts," <a href="http://www.mlive.com/lakers/index.ssf/2012/01/after_four_years_with_kansas_c.html" target="new">Carr told 610 Sports Radio host Nick Wright</a>. "If everything works out the way, you know, that it should, I will be in a Kansas City Chiefs uniform, but at the end of the day it's going to be my decision to make. It's going to be a hard one. It's not going to be easy. I've been out here four years and I have a lot of things established here and a lot of friendships and -- on the field -- getting a lot of things done."

The Chiefs need Carr to maintain his development across from Brandon Carr as the two have combined for the Chiefs as one of the best young secondaries in the NFL. Carr had a career high four interceptions last season and has started 65 consecutive NFL games since his rookie season.
