Chiefs sign Brady Quinn

AP

Brady Quinn is going to Kansas City.

The Chiefs announced the signing of Quinn, a free agent quarterback who spent the last two seasons with the Broncos. In Kansas City he’ll back up Matt Cassel.

Quinn entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick of the Browns in 2007, when Romeo Crennel was Cleveland’s head coach. This move reunites Quinn and Crennel, who’s now the head coach of the Chiefs.

Although some analysts thought Quinn was poised for NFL stardom when he was at Notre Dame, things have not panned out for him professionally. In three years in Cleveland he started just 12 games and never distinguished himself, and in two years in Denver he never even got on the field for a regular-season game.

The 27-year-old Quinn has a career stat line of 184-for-353 for 1,902 yards, with 10 touchdowns, nine interceptions and a passer rating of 66.8.

  1. Oh well, Just when they started looking like they wanted to win they waste money like this.

  2. Quinn can teach Cassel a thing or two about checking down. Or maybe Cassel can teach Quinn a thing or two about checking down. It’ll be hard to tell which is which.

  3. Will he get a real chance to play here or will the job be handed once again to a lesser player because of fan pressure?

  4. Congrats Chiefs on landing the steal of free agency.

    Quinn is a much better player than the one in Cleveland. He has all the tools.

    Give him a chance to compete for the starting job in camp and preseason and you’ll be happy KC! Better than Cassel.

  5. just another in a long line of heisman winning all time great nfl qb starting QB’s out of dame right? it starts with Montana then on to well, uh did I mention Montana? every year they have a can’t miss prospect go there who is going to win multiple heismans(hello ron pawlus) and national titles, from brady quinn to jimmy clausen. how has that worked out for them so far?

  6. Go Brady! Outplay the competition in KC…it’s your time man!

    …your fan since day one in South Bend.

  7. You are telling me that Quinn who was traded for Hillis are with the K.C. now?

    Good thing Shaun Smith are no longer with the Chiefs or things would have been more awkward!

  8. Good luck Brady – when you get depressed, count your money. You make enough to put you in the top 1%.

  9. How is the “now I’m done!” Comment not getting more thumbs up. Is everybody’s memory really that short when it comes to forgettable, low budget myoplex commercials featuring Brady Quinn in 2006/2007. Shame.

  10. Well after this failure Brady can fall back on that ND education that they all think is worth so much. How’s Rudy doing these days, anybody know?

  11. Why? Romeo..you know that old saying? The one- fool me once, shame on you..Fool me twice, shame on me?

  12. Quinn to Win! Chicks seem to dig him in every town he goes to.He’s a good dude. Too bad that doesn’t translate into wins. I used to date his hot sister when I lived in Dublin Ohio before A.J. Hawk Stole her away from Me! Still A little pissed about that one.

    Quinn Fan-Boys are hilarious. He was worshipped in Cleveland and when he got into the lineup because the whole city was whining, he proved to be an expert at passing into d-linemens’ face masks. He just got the other side of the coin in Denver. He’s a backup QB.

  14. Glad to see Brady is being given and opportunity!! He’s never been given much of a chance in my opinion.

  15. So who is going to QB the Broncos? At the moment they have no one. Since Tebow is going to be traded as soon as possible and even if Manning signs, you are going to need a real backup and not one of his usual backups-in-name-only if he isn’t ready to go when the season starts and when he goes down for the season/career.

  16. This is monumental for KC! Create a culture of no competition waiting in the wings with an “Arena League” talent (at best) like Brady Quinn. Romeo is spending too much time fantasizing about Juliet rather than his football team!

  17. Glad Brady got out of Denver where he was never given a chance. Also glad he got out of there before Manning came.
    Now Tebow will know what it is like to be replaced!! Wonder what the fans will say now.

    Good Luck Brady!!
