“I felt like the opportunity to come and play for Kansas City was a better situation for me right now,” Quinn explained. “When you look at the Denver situation there were a lot of unknowns. It was a great organization, but I felt that for me personally it was a better opportunity to go to Kansas City.”
The Broncos wanted to re-sign Quinn for a reserve role, whether it was to backup Manning or incumbent starter Tim Tebow. He found the opportunity greater in Kansas City, despite accepting a lower salary.
“I just think that you can’t make every decision in life based on money,” Quinn said. “For me, personally, I had to take advantage of making the best decision I felt was out there for me at that given point in time. I feel like Kansas City was the right choice.”
