Quiet as kept, the New England Patriots have developed BenJarvus Green-Ellis into one of the better backs in the NFL. The "Law Firm" has scored 24 touchdowns in his last two seasons and his ball security has been flawless since joining the league four years ago. Now that Green-Ellis is a free agent, there is one team that could look to acquire his services, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Boston Herald hears at least one team is "extremely hot" on free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Guessing it's #Chiefs: bit.ly/zzMvSr— Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 11, 2012
With Jammal Charles looking to return to his Pro Bowl form of 2010, Thomas Jones will likely not return and Jackie Battle looking to test the free agent waters himself, the Chiefs will need to add some depth to their backfield. Green-Ellis provides reliability and a nose for the end-zone, and it'll be up to the Chiefs to decide if he's the right fit.
