The Kansas City Chiefs may not be drafting a QB in the 2013 NFL Draft after all.
The Chiefs added two new QBs Tuesday, one via trade and the other via free agency.
The new regime in Kansas City faced a totally barren QB roster upon their arrival. New GM John Dorsey moved to quickly remedy the situation by trading for former San Francisco 49ers QB, Alex Smith. The Chiefs gave up two draft picks for Smith, including its 2013 second-round pick.
Then when free agency began, KC went after former New Orleans Saints QB, Chase Daniel.
According to Adam Caplan, Daniel is getting some pretty good coin to ride the bench.
Chase Daniel gets 3 yrs, $10 M, just under $5 M guaranteed. Nice $ for #2 QB.

That is a very good contract for a backup QB. It is very similar to what Kyle Orton got last offseason from the Dallas Cowboys.
The Chiefs are paying Daniel so much that I can’t hep but wonder if they have some future plans for him. A lot of teams were reportedly going after Daniel and while that likely helped drive up the price, the Chiefs clearly thought Daniel was worth the investment.
What do you think, Addicts? Does Daniel’s contract, along with the Smith trade, mean the Chiefs won’t be drafting a QB at all in 2013?
