As the Denver Broncos wait for their quarterback situation to play out, Brady Quinn wasted no time and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday evening.
Quinn spent two seasons in Denver, but never took a regular season snap. Hopes were high for the Notre Dame alum who was selected in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2007 draft. Quinn started just 12 regular season games for the Cleveland Browns before he was shipped to Denver.
Make that two former Broncos quarterbacks that the Chiefs signed in less than a year. They picked up Kyle Orton in November to help them finish out their 2011 injury plagued season. Now they have Quinn who will back up Matt Cassel.
Quinn is a 52.1% career passer with 10 touchdowns and 9 interceptions in 14 games.
While Denver was not the ideal situation for Quinn, he was nothing but professional. As Tim Tebow took to the field before him, he helped the young quarterback along. He kept it peaceful in the locker room, and most importantly, he did whatever he could to help his team win even if he was on the bench.
We wish Quinn the best of luck in his future endeavors.
