Quinn will visit Chiefs

Earlier on Friday, we wondered aloud whether Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel would be interested in one of his former first-round picks in Cleveland, linebacker Kamerion Wimbley.

Crennel apparently is interested in another one of his former first-round picks in Cleveland.

Quarterback Brady Quinn will visit the Chiefs, according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com.

Crennel and the Browns drafted Quinn after trading back into round one five years ago.  Quinn later was traded to the Broncos, and he has played only sporadically during his NFL career.

In Kansas City, Quinn would likely compete with Ricky Stanzi for the second position on the depth chart behind Matt Cassel.

Quinn was scheduled to visit the Jets before New York signed Drew Stanton, who’ll serve as a non-threatening understudy to Mark Sanchez.

  1. lol and you know this how?

    Love how you guys just make blanket statements, as if things were pure certainty.

    There is more than two seasons of game tape on Cassell, barely nothing on Quinn, yet you know that Quinn who can’t even beat Tebow out, would beat Cassell out in open competition.

  2. If Quinn could beat Cassel in open competition then 22 teams in the draft and the rest of the NFL must be stupid making him the THIRD string QB in Denver. Just because you have a stupid opinion doesn’t mean you need to share it with the ready of us.

  3. Quinn DID beat Teblow out. Notice how John Fox placed him 2nd on the depth chart and Teblow 3rd?

    Teblow only got to play because of the media campaign and public support for him.

    Cassel is a bad QB. Quinn isn’t a great QB but he is better than Cassel

  4. The only reason Teblow beat out Quinn was because Elway and Fox gave into the fans. Quinn should have been the starter last year. I hope he beats out Cassell.

  5. Too bad for him he never got a fair shake in Denver.

    Tim Tebow is like the next Joseph Smith.

  6. Yes, Quinn was ahead of Tebow in camp…right up until the end of camp. Quinn blew his chance in the last preseason game against the Cards when he started with the first team. His performance there put him behind Tebow. Recall, he was 4/12, 0 TDs, 1 Int, and one fumble lost for a QB rating of 7.6. It was at this point that Tebow became the #2.

    He had his chance and blew it. It wasn’t the first time and likely won’t be the last.

  7. I think this is one of the best landing spots for Quinn . Cassel is a weak starter who could very well give way to Quinn presuming he struggles early in the season.

    Of course, I think Quinn would win an open competition with Cassel (and Stanzi), but an open competition is unlikely.

    Chiefs would be getting a big steal in FA.

  8. “yet you know that Quinn who can’t even beat Tebow out, would beat Cassell out in open competition.”

    Yeah, except Quinn DID beat Tebow out…..the Broncos jumped Tebow ahead of Quinn when he was inserted as the starter

    Quinn was the second string QB

  9. I’m all for quinn coming to kc, I’d rather watch him hand the ball off to jc and hillis than cassel. Most of cassel’s passes sail iver everyones head anyway, there’s no reason Quinn couldn’t beat out cassel(he has been a BACKUP QB his whole career). Who did Quinn have to throw to in cleveland anyway?!

  10. If he didn’t hold out he would of started from game 1. Instead, that season led to Derek Anderson making the Pro Bowl and he never got a fair shot to develop.

  11. “In Kansas City, Quinn would likely compete with Ricky Stanzi for the second position on the depth chart behind Matt Cassel.”

    What a group.

    If you don’t have a good QB in today’s NFL, you’re going nowhere.

  12. Handing the ball off shouldn’t be too tough for any QB the Chiefs choose as that is primarily what they will be ask to do. Run Run Run Run then pass.

  13. The contention that Brady Quinn could beat out Matt Cassel for the starting job is ridiculous.

    There are reasons Quinn has spent his entire professional career unable to stay in a starting lineup and those reasons are not suddenly gone. He has physical ability that Cassel doesn’t have but Cassel has him beat all day when it comes to leadership and in-game decision making. He is not going to roll into KC and seriously compete for the starting job.

    Do the Chiefs need to get better at QB? Absolutely. Is Brady Quinn the answer? Absolutely not.
