The Kansas City Chiefs are in the middle of their rookie mini-camp and have 33 players in town to participate. Among those players, though, you will find only one quarterback, Pitt’s Bill Stull. He is in Kansas City only on a tryout basis.
Stull was poised to take over the starting quarterback position for the Panthers in 2007 after current Chiefs QB Tyler Palko graduated, but a a thumb injury forced him to miss the entire season. He did, however, finally get to run the Pitt offense the next two seasons.
After an unremarkable 2008, Stull became the unquestioned leader of the Pitt offense last season. He was named to the All-Big East First Team, as voted by the Big East head coaches. Stull led the conference in passing yards (2,470) while completing 65% of his passes with 21 touchdowns to go with only 8 interceptions.
Following Pitt’s pro-day, Stull sounded like he would be a good fit for Kansas City.
“I’m really just looking forward to getting an opportunity and taking the next step,” he said about his pro potential.
And his standout season in 2009?
“It was everyone – we all made each other better and that was one of the things that made us so successful this year. We had 11 playing as one.”
