KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Pro Bowl cornerback Ty Law agreed to a five-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Law will rejoin Herman Edwards, who coached him with the New York Jets last year, when the veteran came back from a severe foot injury and led the NFL with 10 interceptions. Chiefs spokesman Bob Moore said Law will take his physical Monday.

Edwards, who replaced Dick Vermeil as head coach of the Chiefs, is a former Pro Bowl cornerback and has vowed to revamp a Kansas City defense that the past five years has been near the bottom of the league.

The 32-year-old Law, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, will pair with Patrick Surtain in what could be the Chiefs' strongest secondary since James Hasty and Albert Carter anchored the backfield in the mid-1990s.

For many reasons, Law was never on the Texans radar.

I know, I know, but he was on my radar and that's all that counts :)

The chiefs are putting a lot of big pieces and money into their defense...If LJ is the real deal this year, they could be a force.

They may be the favorite to win the AFC West. I don't know how well the Broncos will do after losing Kubiak. Will Jake Plummer have another Pro Bowl season? Who's there running back? Will Ashley Lelie be too much of a distraction if he leaves? The Broncos still have lots of talent, but I don't know if they'll be as good as they were last year.

The Raiders have Aaron Brooks as their QB. I don't know if that's much of an upgrade over Kerry Collins. It might even be a downgrade. They have Al Davis interfering too much in the organization. Art Shell get's rehired, but he has to keep all the coaches from the old staff.

The Chargers have Phillip Rivers as their starter. I think it all depends on him for San Diego. If he turns out to be as good as they think, then it'll be a three way race between them, Denver, and KC. It should be a very competitive division.

Ty Law (if he can stay healthy and still play effectively, he survived last year but his increasing age makes it continually more dubious of a situation) and Patrick Surtain are definitely a nice CB duo, I don't know if the Chiefs are ready for a Super Bowl run yet but I definitely think they will be in the playoffs this year, maybe beat the Broncos out for the division too.

I don't know about Herm Edwards. He seems to get his teams into playoff contention, but doesn't seem to have it together enough to string together wins in the playoffs. He might be the next Marty S.
