[Newsday.com] With the Jets and Chad Pennington’s agent meeting to determine his future with the team, a potential suitor for the injured quarterback has emerged if the discussions break down before Friday’s deadline.
It’s no surprise, either: Chiefs coach Herman Edwards.
If Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum and agent Tom Condon are unable to reach a compromise on Pennington’s contract, a person with knowledge of the situation said the Chiefs – motivated by Edwards’ belief in the quarterback – would be interested in trying to help him salvage his career.
Such a move would be complicated, considering that the Chiefs’ salary-cap situation is even worse than the Jets’. Edwards also is believed to be interested in another player he coached last season, cornerback Ty Law.
Edwards, who is forbidden by league rules to discuss players under contract with other teams, deflected Jet-related questions at the combine yesterday.
“I’m no longer with the Jets,” Edwards said. “I don’t want to answer anything for the Jets. They have to do what they have to do.”
