[Kansas City.com] Let the Ty Law buzz begin – again.
Law is apparently out in New York, and the Chiefs and new coach Herm Edwards are expected to show interest. Less than a year ago, Kansas City was atwitter about Law before, during and after the free-agency period. He ended up signing with the New York Jets, in part, he said at the time, because of Edwards.
“We’ve mutually agreed to part ways,” Law’s agent, Carl Poston, told The Star-Ledger of Newark in Wednesday’s editions. “There’s no ill feelings. Ty had a great year. He enjoyed it there. He held up his end of the bargain. Unfortunately, the Jets had some injury problems that derailed them.”
The Jets would have to pay Law an $11 million option bonus if he’s on the roster next month. Law overcame a serious foot injury and led the Jets with 10 interceptions.
The Chiefs declined to comment on Law on Wednesday, saying they won’t talk about a player under contract. Poston hasn’t returned phone calls to The Star.
Salary-cap considerations would play into any potential signing, especially a big name like Law. The Chiefs will have to clear some space under the NFL cap and are expected to approach several players about restructuring their contracts to create cap space.
