It looks like this is the end of the road for Kansas City Chiefs QB of the future Brodie Croyle. THe Chiefs signed a number of their own free agents yesterday and Croyle was not among them. They also have QB’s Ricky Stanzi and Tyler Palko on the roster. There is no more room for Croyle.
Drafted to eventually take over for an aging Trent Green, Coryle never panned out. A string of injuries hampered his development, as did a terrible offensive line. Croyle will leave Kansas City as perhaps one of the biggest busts in franchise history. He never won a game, going 0-10 as a starter.
His career stat line is 181 completions in 319 attempts, 56.7% completion percentage for 1.669 yards passing, an average of 5.6 yards per completion. He threw eight touchdowns vs. nine interceptions. He was sacked 26 times and fumbled five times, losing three.
His injuries aside, Croyle probably was never going to make it as an NFL starter. He just was never able to make anything happen when given the opportunity. Unfortunately, give his poor play last season, he may also be finished as a backup. He is 28 years old and time is running out.
I’ve always liked Croyle. He seems like a great kid and I admired the way he fought his way back onto the roster after his terrible knee injury. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be for Brodie “Brokie” Croyle.
Don’t feel too bad for Brodie, though. He is a still a millionaire.
So long Brodie Croyle.
