Report: Former Chiefs' QB finds job

Former Kansas City quarterback Brodie Croyle is reportedly expected to sign with Arizona.

The Chiefs had no plans to re-sign Croyle in the offseason. They are currently going with Tyler Palko and fifth-round pick Ricky Stanzi as Matt Cassel's backups.

Coyle was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2006. They looked at him as a potential starter, but he never could stay healthy nor could he win. He was 0-10 as the Chiefs’ starter. His fate was sealed late last season when he started a game in San Diego and he was awful in a 31-0 loss. The Chiefs realized then that they could not rely on Croyle to help them win.

In other AFC West nuggets Tuesday afternoon:

Here’s more talk that Tim Tebow is struggling in Denver and one team source is quoted as saying undrafted rookie Adam Weber is further along than Tebow. My thoughts? I think what we have to pay attention to is the fact that he is currently the No. 3 quarterback. That tells you all you need to know at this point.

Denver rookie linebacker Von Miller, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, appeared on the Scott Van Pelt radio show Tuesday.

Here’s more evidence of just how bad the Josh McDaniels’ era was in Denver. If Broncos’ fans wonder how the team’s roster got depleted; wonder no more, McDaniels did a number on your franchise in less than two years.

Terrelle Pryor said he is determined to stay at quarterback in Oakland. Oakland head coach Hue Jackson said Monday the Raiders will start the former Ohio State quarterback at the position and then take it from there.

Kansas City coach Todd Haley shows his players another side of himself.
