It appears Brokie Brodie Croyle has injured himself again and has forced the Chefs to sign a QB. The team announced today that they signed Former University of Pittsburgh QB Bill Stull, who was the team’s QB at the rookie mini camp earlier this year.
Stull signed a contract with the club on Tuesday morning, just a day after the Chiefs had only two active quarterbacks participating in practice. Matt Cassel took all first-team reps yesterday, while Tyler Palko handled both the second and third-team duties. Brodie Croyle was outdoors, but did not practice.
Stull (6-3, 215) played in 32 games (26 starts) at the University of Pittsburgh, completing 418 of 681 passes for 5,252 yards with 32 TDs and 18 INTs, good for a 136.38 passer rating. He started all 13 games as a senior, connecting on 209 of 321 throws for 2,633 yards with 21 TDs and eight INTs. Stull prepped at Seton-LaSalle High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
As per their policy, the Chiefs have not released any information on Croyle’s injury, though there were reports that he had a brace on his arm yesterday. I doubt it is anything serious and the Chiefs likely brought in Stull so they had someone to take snaps with the 3rd team while Croyle “heals.”
