Could former Chiefs starting quarterback Damon Huard get traded? Adam Teicher of the Star thinks it’s a possibility:
His status doesn’t figure to change any time soon. The Chiefs are committed to Croyle as their starter, at least for now. They are intrigued by the ability of Thigpen and want every opportunity to see what he can do.
The Chiefs may wind up trading Huard if that opportunity comes available to them in the next couple of months.
ESPN’s Bill Williamson agrees over on his AFC West blog:
It makes sense if Kansas City considers dealing him because most teams do not have 35-year-old third-string quarterbacks. Experienced backup quarterbacks are difficult to come by, so it would not be a shock if there is some interest in Huard as teams get closer to finalizing their 53-man rosters.
This potential move makes a ton of sense to me. Let’s get whatever we can for Damon, and get another young quarterback–Chris Simms, anyone?–on the roster. It’s also fair to Damon to give him a better opportunity than third-stringer, and on a team that’s looking to win as he winds up his career. Love him or hate him, he’s been a dedicated, respectable Chief. Stay tuned…
