Chiefs’ Andy Reid Impressed With Tyler Bray

The Kansas City Chiefs won’t practice again until training camp begins in late-July but head coach Andy Reid told the media yesterday that he was impressed with the progress made by undrafted free agent QB, Tyler Bray.
“Yeah, I’ll tell you, he did a nice job,” said Reid.”He did a really nice job. You never know until you get them here. He’s in a good room, so he’s got good examples around him as players. He’s got coaches that have played the game and the position in there. He’s embraced that and really focused in. The fact is that he did a nice job and improved every day. He was a bit like a sponge just taking everything in. I was impressed.”
The Chiefs almost completely overhauled their QB depth chart this offseason. The new regime jettisoned former starters Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn, electing to trade for Alex Smith. New GM John Dorsey also signed free agent Chase Daniel in free agency. Daniel is the current favorite to play the backup role to Smith.
The only QB left on the roster from 2012 is former fifth-round draft pick, Ricky Stanzi. Stanzi failed to crack the Chiefs’ starting lineup since entering the league, which was disappointing considering how poor the team’s QB play had been.
Stanzi and Bray will likely battle through most of training camp for the final QB spot on the roster.
We haven’t heard much about Stanzi this offseason so it looks like the job could be Bray’s to lose.
What do you think, Addicts? Is Stanzi getting a fair shake?
