FOXBOROUGH -- Ty Law's agent, Carl Poston, said his client took a physical for the Patriots last week, but there have been no substantive talks between the two parties about a contract.
Poston said that while a physical is an ''indication of a level of interest," it does not mean an offer is impending. ''I often have clients take physicals that lead to nothing," Poston said yesterday. Law also took a physical for the Titans last Thursday, and has been in regular contact with Chiefs coach Herman Edwards.
''If things all work out, it'll be great," Edwards told reporters last week. ''Talks are on, so we'll see where it's at."
The cornerback played his first 10 years in the league with the Patriots, but joined the Jets, then coached by Edwards, after being released by New England in February 2005. Law didn't sign with New York until July. He led the NFL in interceptions with 10 last season.
Poston said the Chiefs, Patriots, Titans, and Seahawks all remain in the hunt for Law's services, though no formal offer has been made by any team and Law is under no pressure to make a decision soon.
Seattle was thought to be the early favorite, and even after drafting a cornerback in the first round, the Seahawks have maintained contact with Law.
The Patriots and Chiefs have the most room under the salary cap to sign Law, whose asking price is in the $10 million range for next season.
