[KC Chiefs.com] As a former first-round draft pick once considered the savior of another franchise, quarterback Brady Quinn wasn’t about to celebrate the news that he had officially been named the Chiefs’ top backup to Matt Cassel.
“Everyone wants to be a starter in this league and play on the field,’’ Quinn said. “That’s the ultimate time you’d be pretty happy having a title of sorts.’’
Even if Quinn wasn’t impressed, it was big news for the Chiefs, though not a surprise. Quinn has more experience than his competition, Ricky Stanzi, and outplayed him during the preseason.
Coach Romeo Crennel cited Quinn’s experience as the big factor. Quinn, a first-round pick by Cleveland in 2007, started 12 games for the Browns over three seasons.
Stanzi, a rookie last season, has never played in a regular-season NFL game.
