The Kansas City Chiefs reportedly have signed UFA Tyler Bray, a quarterback from Tennessee University.

Adam Schefter from ESPN broke the news on his Twitter feed that the Tennessee quarterback would be joining the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.

This is quite a surprise, because it had earlier been reported that Bray was headed for South Beach and the Miami Dolphins. Schefter was quick to set the record straight with this tweet.

This is pretty exciting news, as Bray was projected to go as high as the third round in some mock drafts. I was personally pretty high on him and expressed interest in my normal weekly column last week.

Bray was a quarterback that many questioned whether he should have declared for the draft, but his numbers don’t lie. Last season he threw for 3,612 yards, just shy of a 60 percent completion rate, 34 TDS and 12 INTs.

He may be headed into the Chiefs’ off-season program as an undrafted free agent, but I truly think he has the best chance to be on the 53-man roster when the season begins in September. He’s better than Stanzi, he’s better than Tanney and I think he could be better than Daniel.

Time will tell, but this might be the developmental quarterback Chiefs fans have been waiting for.

What do you think, Addicts? Did Dorsey and Reid just find the quarterback of the future?
