Setting The Odds For The Kansas City Chiefs Quarterbacks

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse


One of the more interesting questions brought about by the draft was what the Chiefs’ plans were at the quarterback position. The selection of Aaron Murray caused an immediate decision to be made about the futures of either Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray while also posing the question of whether or not Alex Smith was still the long-term answer for the Chiefs at quarterback.

Trying to figure out what the Chiefs are planning on doing may come down to figuring out which quarterback are more likely to be here come 2015. By making determining the 2015 circumstances of Smith, Murray, Bray, and Daniel we’ll have answered a lot of questions that are surrounding the group. Will Smith sign an extension and stay after his contract runs out in 2014? Is Bray developing at a rate worth keeping on the roster? Do the Chiefs value the experience of Daniel more than the raw potential of their younger quarterbacks?

All of these are questions needing answers soon. Let’s break down each quarterback and his situation and place the odds on each signal caller and whether he will be on the roster come September 2015.

    Nice write up Ben. The problem that I see is if Daniels is a true tradeable piece then it means that he got substantial playing time in 2014 which means Smith went down with a pretty big injury which knocks over the entire stack of dominoes. This might be one of the first times I say this, but I am really looking forward to the QB play in the preseason.

    I think the likeliest scenarios are either 1) Murray to IR in 2014 or 2) Bray is disappointing and Murray is #3. If the latter, small chance Daniel sticks around, but still would have to be slim.

    Or – to my dismay – Daniels gets time is due to AS11 playing bad and Reid does nt want to throw Murray or Bray to the lions yet
