QB2 for the Chiefs in 2011?

As great as Carson Palmer was today, it's time to face the facts.  He is probably not a starting QB in the NFL anymore.  There is a good chance the Bengals will will be looking to go in a new direction at QB this off-season, and there is a pretty good chance no other team would want to commit to him as a starter,  He may get a chance to compete for a starting job somewhere, but most likely his reputation will proceed him and he will lose out.  So, assuming Carson Palmer doesn't have a job going into next season, do you think that maybe the Chiefs could give him a considerate offer for a back-up QB spot? (after today, perhaps they owe it to him!) 

The Chiefs don't want to be caught dead in the water like they were in San Diego if Matt Cassel were ever to go down again.  The Chiefs are to good of a team to be so thin at that position.   So they need a legitimate back up. Brody may be a good back-up somewhere, but he shoud no longer be an option for the Chiefs.  San Diego ruined him.  What the Chiefs need is a veteran who has started in the NFL, like Kitna, or Kerry Collins for that matter, if they ever expect to weather the storm in such a situation.  I really hope that this is among the first things the Chiefs address in the free agent market.  As far as our other needs, those may be better addressed in the draft.  So my question is could Palmer be that kind of veteran?  Has his value diminished enough, that that could be a viable option? Are there better options that may be available?  Kyle Orton maybe?  Who do you suggest?
