Veteran safety Greg Wesley, who has long desired his release from the Chiefs, was granted his request today.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he was already fielding calls from teams interested in Wesley, a starter for seven seasons before he was replaced last year,

“There’s a lot of interest in Greg, as we thought there would be,’’ Rosenhaus said.

Rosenhaus said he was optimistic Wesley would sign with another team before training camps begin next week.

“That’s the plan,’’ he said.

The Chiefs have tried for more than a year to trade Wesley and almost had a deal in place with Denver last season.

Jarrad Page and Bernard Pollard are set as the starting safeties. Jon McGraw and rookie DaJuan Morgan, a third-round pick are the backups.

I'm suprised that they did this now given that they have held on to him this long. If there was an injury in camp to another team we surley would have gotten something for him. The guy never became the player I had hoped but overall had a good career. He really impressed me by his attitude during last season's demotion and not being released this spring. I'll cheer for him wherever he ends up.

I bet he ends up in Denver as a big FU to CP

He's experienced, decent tackler, just lacks elite cover skills.

Meh, wonder where he'll end up. Denver is a possibility, but I'm sure other teams would love an experienced safety.

FYP...

I doubt there will be any great interest...The NFL's changing, and players like Greg Wesley and Roy Williams are being spurned in favor more coverage-savy safeties.
