DT Tommie Harris had this to say about Mike Brown/chicagosuntimes.com
“Mike Brown is a special person, a special player, and a special friend, it’s going to be different, seeing him leave, but I know he will be productive wherever he goes and with whatever he does. He will always be remembered in my book as one of the toughest guys to play this game.
While many Chiefs fans have been focused on the recent release of Dallas Cowboys DE/OLB Greg Ellis and the “what if ” surrounding his possible signing, head coach Todd Haley has apparently been looking northward towards Chicago, rather than down south. The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs will have Bears’ SS Mike Brown in for a visit today.
The nine-year veteran’s 2008 season was again shortened due to injury but not before registing 15 starts and racking up 101 tackles. Even though Brown’ career has been undercut by injuries (missing 44 games in the last five seasons) his leadership and passion for the game is still healthy. Whether or not Mike Brown can still lace them up may not be the Chiefs primary concern. Brown’s professional approach to the game, not unlike that of LB Zach Thomas, would certainly inspire and guide the Chiefs young trio of safeties.
First year head coach Haley’s recreation of the Redskins “Over-the-Hill Gang” might not be so much about securing wins in 2009, but more about instilling toughness, the genetic football gene necessary for designing a future winner.
