The competition between Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi for the Kansas City Chiefs backup quarterback job probably won't be solved anytime soon. At least it doesn't appear that way. The Chiefs have been rotating Quinn and Stanzi throughout the offseason and Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel didn't sound like he was ready to name a No. 2 and a No. 3 anytime soon.
"We're still rotating them," Crennel said on Tuesday, via KCChiefs.com. "We're still in the process of looking at both, the second and the third, trying to get them some work. It's still a rotation."
The Chiefs mandatory minicamp, which ends on Thursday, is the final set of practices until training camp. That tells us we probably won't know much more until training camp comes.
Asked who's leading the competition, Crennel pleaded the 5th. "I'm at that point where I don't have to list them just yet, so it's a rotation," he said.
Like injuries, the Chiefs don't have to talk about depth charts if they don't want to. Some coaches do and some don't. And some coaches just don't know yet.
This has the look of a competition that could go well into training camp. The Chiefs first depth chart will be released before their first preseason game, which comes on August 10. (Check out last year's initial depth chart. Jerheme Urban was the No. 2 receiver.)
