Speaking on The Opening Drive on Jox 94.5 FM in Birmingham, Alabama, QB Brodie Croyle said he will return to the Kansas City Chiefs next season.
[I'm] getting ready for the whole free agency thing. I'm under that six-year thing, this uncapped year, that provides....whatever, it's very confusing to me.
Basically, I'll be in Kansas City next year, so that's always good.
Surprising? Not in the least bit.
Croyle probably still has some value so if the Chiefs aren't interested in keeping him, they can tender him at the original pick level (3rd round) and wait for offers. If they want to keep him, then they can assign a higher tender to ensure he's safe.
Even though Croyle expects to be back with the Chiefs, we're probably a long ways away from determining that. In addition, his return isn't really his choice. It's up to the Chiefs.
Here are a few other notes from his interview:
Definitely pays attention to who the Chiefs are targeting in the draft......Last year was the most comfortable he's felt in the NFL......Tebow is probably the best college football player he's ever seen (Editor's Note: They also share the same agent so take his comments for what it's worth).
