[Kansas City.com] Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen says he’s “not OK” with being demoted to backup after the team acquired Matt Cassel from New England, but he said he’s willing to trust coaches’ judgment and hopes he’ll get a chance at the starting job.
Cassel worked with the Chiefs’ first-team offense during Kansas City’s three-day minicamp, which ended Sunday. Thigpen worked with the second team.
“It’s life,” Thigpen said Sunday. “Everything happens for a reason. You may not see the reason right now, but I know there’s a reason that they brought a guy in like Matt.”
“I’m behind him, and all I’m doing is pushing him, making him better. Hopefully me doing that is going to make this team better.”
