The Chiefs aren't known for their history of quarterbacks. Well, they're known for taking a non-Hall of Fame quarterback in the 1983 draft, and for bringing Joe Montana in for his last run but, beyond that, there's not much there.
Except for that Len Dawson dude. Remember him? Yeah, he wasn't bad.
What did they get out of it?
- Two Super Bowl appearances
- Super Bowl victory
- Super Bowl MVP
- Hall of Fame quarterback
The decision deserves even more kudos because he wasn't expected to be anything special. He was drafted by the Steelers in 1957 and later signed with the Browns before being released weeks prior to signing with the Chiefs.
