The Kansas City Chiefs are apparently interested in bringing back Tyler Bray to serve another year or more on the team’s depth chart at quarterback.

As of press time, the Kansas City Chiefs have a hole to fill at quarterback. Actually there are two of them, the two slots behind Patrick Mahomes who has been gifted a role as the team’s starting quarterback. One of them might turn out to be a familiar face in Tyler Bray.

The Chiefs have yet to make a move to secure a quarterback although many media outlets have connected the dots between the team and free agent quarterback Chase Daniel, who actually played in Kansas City for three seasons earlier in his career. Whether or not the Chiefs end up grabbing a veteran off of the free agent market, there would still be room for Bray as the team’s third quarterback, just like he’s been since he first joined the team.

Bray began his NFL career with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2013 and outlasted every single bit of competition for the five years since, including former Chiefs picks Kevin Hogan and Aaron Murray. He did come in during Week 17 and immediately fumble, which left a sour taste in a lot of fans’  mouths. That said, Bray knows the system inside and out and has yet to really have a chance to show what he can do.

If the Chiefs sign a guy in free agency or take one in the draft it shouldn’t preclude them from signing )or not signing) Tyler Bray.
