I Want Jon Kitna


Outlets like PFT are reporting that Jon Kitna is likely to be cut from the Lions soon. If he is, I want the Chiefs to sign him as a backup QB. Granted, this isn’t a sexy move, like trading for Cassel or Anderson would be, but I think it makes a lot of sense.

Assuming we don’t move on a young veteran QB, we are looking going into the season with Tyler Thigpen and Brodie Croyle or a rookie QB. With such a young group of QB’s it is important to have a seasoned vet to mentor and spot start if needed. Kitna is a seasoned vet who has had success in the NFL. I want that type of QB with our youngsters. At this stage in his career, Kitna should be accepting of a backup/mentor role.

Now, you may be saying: what about Quinn Gray? Sorry, he is almost 30 and has attempted less than 200 passes in his NFL career. Counting on him is not a wise move.

What about Jeff Garcia? Garcia fits the bill almost perfectly. The problem is that Garcia is a West Coast Offense QB. He would not work in KC, nor do I see him going to a team that does not run the West Coast Offense.

OK, Addicts have at it. Should we go after Kitna? Do you like another backup QB?
