    Chiefs pick up veteran safety Mike Brown - Kansas City Star

    The Chiefs have agreed to contract terms with veteran safety Mike Brown. Brown, a nine-year veteran and a 2005 Pro Bowler with the Chicago Bears, could challenge either of the incumbents, Bernard Pollard and Jarrad Page, for a starting job.

    Brown, 31, quickly established himself as one of the league’s top safeties after being drafted by the Bears in the second round in 2000. He is Chicago’s all-time leader in defensive touchdowns with seven.

    Durability might be Brown’s biggest issue. He missed 44 games over the past five seasons because of injuries. He played in 15 games last season but did not play in the season’s final game because of a calf injury.

    Brown’s contract expired at the end of last season and the Bears made no effort to re-sign him.

    I know someone posted earlier that he might replace Pollard, but if God is good, Page is being demoted as we speak.

    Great signing.

    Brown played FS in Chicago didn't he? No way Pollard gets bumped down, he's ideal for a 3-4.

    Thanks Aussie!

    Yeah, he played FS in Chicago. Someone posted that Gretz posted that someone told him that Brown would be brought in to replace Pollard, not Page. That's pretty third hand, but it was at least rumored.

    Does anybody know if Brown could be suited as a SS in the 3-4?

    I don't think he would be better than Pollard. He's smaller, and if age and injury hasn't hampered him too much, faster. Also, he's an INT machine more like Page is. Pollard has the tenacity that benefits the entire defense throughout the game, can't afford to lose that.

    Thanks Aussie!

    OK so looks like Pages' job in jeopardy with this signing...

    A+ signing. Great safety to take over for Page. A sure handed tackler and excellent coverage man

    Sounds like an immediate improvement if he can stay healthy.
