The Kansas City Chiefs announced they have come to terms with free agent QB Brady Quinn. He spent the last two seasons with the Denver Broncos after initially entering the NFL as a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns.
This isn’t likely what Chiefs fans had hoped for when the team’s front office talked about bringing in competition for incumbent Matt Cassel. After all, Quinn hasn’t played in a game since 2009.
When Kyle Orton struggled with the Broncos last season, it was Tim Tebow the team turned to instead of Quinn. After the season he ripped Tebow in an interview, though he tried (unsuccessfully) to distance himself from the comments.
Crennel and Chiefs head coach were together in Cleveland. During the two seasons they were both with the Browns, Quinn was 48-of-97 for 563 yards and two touchdowns.
Oddly enough, Quinn was traded from Cleveland to Denver for one of the newest Chiefs, RB Peyton Hillis.
Quinn isn’t going to push Cassel, but at least he’s not Tyler Palko. Something tells me that isn’t how the team will lead off their press release on the signing.
