Chiefs take a look-see at Leigh Bodden

David Nelson, Leigh Bodden AP

Six days ago, the Patriots abruptly cut cornerback Leigh Bodden.  Three days ago, no one claimed his services on waivers.  At that point, he became a free agent.

Per a league source, Bodden visited the Chiefs on Wednesday.  He has not yet been signed.

Though the knee-jerk reaction by many will be that Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli is interested because he signed Bodden while in New England, Bodden joined the Pats after Pioli left.  Instead, Bodden’s link comes from his time in Cleveland, playing for Chiefs defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

Bodden is eligible to recover the balance of his $3.9 million base salary from the Patriots as termination pay.  If he signs with a new team, he gets to keep that money, too.

    this would add much needed depth at the position

    Nobody cares about the irrelevant Chiefs.

    The Raiders just sold out again.

    I’m pretty sure more people care about the Chiefs than your opinion.

    Hard for a first place team to be irrelevant.

    If you mean the fade just sold the rest of their draft picks for an irrelevant player, then yes, I agree. Bandwagon pathetic fanbase.

    As for Bodden, I wonder if he could transition to saftey like a lot of older corners do. We need a stop gap until Berry gets back to being a world beater, and Jon McGraw is just god awful.

    And the Faiders have a washed up QB that just signed a washed up receiver. You must be real proud of selling out. What is that, the 2nd sell out in 5 years?

    Why would anyone cry, it’s in the CBA. If they wanted Bodden they would have kept him. They’re way under the cap.
    ==================================
    The Raiders just sold out again.

    Even though Halloween’s over? Pretty sad when that’s big news. Chiefs are irrelevent? They’re tied w/the raiders. No wait, they win the tie breaker due to the 28-0 shellacking they gave them. Don’t worry though, Palmer says he knows the playbook now.

    BB probably wants him back. Bodden should sit back and wait for the bidding war to ensue.

    a charger or raider fan, huh?

    hahahaaahaha the Chiefs fans should be much more cautious about their comments. The raiders are a much better team and that will be proven as the season goes on. You beat Boller and Carsons arm was still sleeping from the remote controller motion. your offense scored 14 points of 4 picks. 2 picks taken to house. 28 points with more than 6 turnovers? It was a ugly loss for the Raiders but we will blow you out in your stadium. you can save this post if you like.

    Funny how Chiefs fans only exist when they win a game…

  13. gerard33 says: Nov 3, 2011 8:53 PM

    to keep Javier fresh? Maybe play a little safety?

    Basically, I hope some of the players that do read this site (& comments section) DO save this. they could use the extra motivation, given that oakland wasn’t competitive last time.

    Yeah, it is when they got their head handed to them two weeks in a row last season – v. Raiders and v. the Ravens in the playoffs.

    Will somebody, please off this team … that god awful MNF game and that weak %$% win v. Raiders got them delusional again.

    This fraud will be unmasked in the latter part of their schedule.

    If they’re a “much better team”, why would they need motivation?

    Typical Raider fan. No grasp of the English language.

    “Funny how Chiefs fans only exist when they win a game…”

    That is a joke Chiefs fans are real fans, we sell out our stadium all the time. You must be a faider or chargers fan. Talk about fair weather fans. You are bragging about selling out your stadium up there in that dump in Oakland what is that the second time in 5-10 yrs lol. Give me a break. The Chargers are better than the faiders and their QB whines and cries like a little girl and yells at his own team like he never messes up. It really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme because this whole division is way behind other divsions and no team in the AFC west will get past the first round of the playoffs. But the difference here is that we will still be in the seats and supporting the Chiefs no matter what and the faider fans will go back to mugging and shooting people and charger fans will go back to smoking pot and surfing or whatever they do down there(which I do have to say is a beautiful place to live)

    Typical faider fan to base this years performance on last years division wins…

    Us Chiefs fans have moved on, and by the way I think it was the Chiefs in the playoffs last year? We were 10-6, what was your record?

    “A healthy Faiders team would’ve owned the Chiefs”. A healthy Chiefs team woud’ve put 60 on your azz. The Chiefs are up 28-0, running a dumbed-down version of their plays with 3 pro-bowlers out, didn’t even really play in the 4th quarter, and faider fan thinks we “only put up 28″… Consider yourself lucky chumps!

  24. slickster35 says: Nov 3, 2011 11:22 PM

    The fade fans have to live in the past. It’s all they have.

  25. chadinkc30 says: Nov 4, 2011 8:45 AM

    I live in KC & really chiefs fans have NOTHING to talk smack about! Sorry but any team that hasn’t won a playoff game in 18 years should probably be quiet until doing so! Great fans but a lil naive

  26. jjackwagon says: Nov 4, 2011 4:00 PM

    @ Joe

    Nobody cares about the irrelevant Raiders.

    The Chiefs continue to sellout so selling out isn’t newsworthy.

    @ Chad Chiefs haven’t won a playoff game in 18 years, Raiders haven’t won a playoff game since…what…2002 season? Chargers haven’t won a playoff game since, oh, maybe 2009 season? How is any of that material to this conversation? It’s not.
    Any team that can start 0-3 and then win the next four while beating the two division leaders in the process, has earned the right to talk at least a little bit.

    The team that wins this division will probably do it with a 9-7 record and it will be fun to watch them beat the crap out of each other.

  27. chadinkc30 says: Nov 4, 2011 5:16 PM

    The fact the Chiefs haven’t won a playoff game in 18 years is irrelevant? Really keep telling yourself that and I’d be willing to guarantee another mediocre season at best for your Chiefs! I said Chiefs fans were great fans & will continue to sell out, but that’s my point …what has that gotten you? Is it irrelevant to say the Royals haven’t won a playoff game in 26 years? They get bagged on every year for being cheap in an unfair no salary cap situation, meanwhile your chiefs are even cheaper, but continue to sellout to their naive fans that seem to think they are gonna finally win a meaningful game! It is very impressive that the chiefs have won 4 games in a row, no matter how fluky they might have been or the competition it came against

  28. rammer27 says: Nov 4, 2011 7:46 PM

    The fact that the Chiefs sell out all the time became relevant when an idiot faiders fan threw out the fact they were about to sell out another one this year (big f-ing deal) and someone said that Chiefs fans were only behind our team since they turned it around after the 0-3 start. We are always there, we just know when to get vocal. I think it was the same faiders fan who said they were going to destroy us the first game that just said it again. Writing checks your black hole can’t cash my friend.

    Haha looking like the frauds everyone in the world thought they were! Except for you chiefs fans! Stay loyal though
