In not Peyton Manning or Tim Tebow news, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports is reporting that Brady Quinn is planning on visiting the Kansas City Chiefs. All right, all together, in unison please:


Good. Glad we got that out of our systems, so we can fully, non-cynically process this little bit of "news." The head coach of the Chiefs is now Romeo Crennel, the man who first helped draft Quinn when they were one in Cleveland. Maybe Crennel likes Quinn, or at least finds his water-fetching skills to be somewhat up to par.

He only needs to beat out Ricky Stanzi for Kansas City's backup quarterback job (Matt Cassel is the starter), a task that seems almost too simple for Quinn. Think you can handle that, Brady? Do you think you can handle beating out Stanzi? His NFL stat line says "No Stats Available."

Brady, if you manage to screw this up, all hope will be lost for you.

It's a shame Quinn is leaving Denver, it really is. I doubt Kansas City fans are putting up billboards for Cassel, something Quinn would get hysterically peeved about in an issue of GQ. Quinn was supposed to visit the New York Jets, until Drew Stanton signed with them recently. Quinn will need to get his backup fix somewhere else, it seems.

Kansas City might just be that place.
