[Kansas City.com] With training camp less than two weeks away, free agent cornerback Ty Law is still a man without a home, but he has drawn plenty of interest.
His main suitors are New England, Arizona, Seattle and Kansas City, and it’s assumed the Chiefs and Patriots are the front-runners. Law hates it when people assume. But it’s obvious that New England and Kansas City are heavily on his mind, in part, he says, because “they have a pretty damn good chance of winning.”
Sentimentality may play into it, too. Kansas City is where Herm Edwards is now the coach, and Law and Edwards are longtime friends. Edwards coached him in New York last fall, when doubters wondered whether Law could come back from a serious foot injury, and Law ended up with a league-high 10 interceptions.
New England is where Law won three Super Bowls but was a salary-cap casualty after the foot injury.
“I’d love to have the opportunity to play for (Kansas City), especially going up there and being reunited with Herm Edwards, because we have some unfinished business,” Law said Tuesday. “If we get together again, fine. But at the same time, we both know this is a business, and all fairy tales don’t come true. It’s not out of the question that I can return back to New England because I didn’t leave on bad terms. It was business. Me and coach (Bill) Belichick, contrary to what everyone might believe, we’re fine.”
“I’m not opposed to going to either (place). Do I have preferences? Hmmmm, I can’t even say that. That puts myself at a disadvantage.”
Law said his decision isn’t just about money. He wants to go somewhere he feels comfortable. He said he’s turned down some deep-pocketed teams that he didn’t think could win in 2006. After enduring a 4-12 season in New York last year, Law said he can’t go through another rebuilding season.
