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.
