Chiefs Training Camp: Brodie Croyle's Role, Javier Arenas Talk

In 2010, the Kansas City Chiefs are clearly Matt Cassel's team. He's taken all the first team reps in training camp and I think everyone understands that.

"He's had a great camp," backup Brodie Croyle told 610 Sports' Bob Fescoe on Thursday. "He just continues to get better and better."

Croyle discussed his role, as the backup quarterback, with Fescoe.

"Whatever role I'm put in, I'm going to do that role," Croyle said, echoing the company line. "Obviously to help Matt as much as I can. As the quarterback group, we have to be a tight-knit group, and we are."

"In the classroom, since he's been in this offense before, with the two years under both of us, we both kind of throw our insight in on things. When we get out here, we just try to push each other. Whether it's throwing at nets, or whatever, that's what being teammates is all about.

Croyle also talked a little bit about Javier Arenas, who went to Alabama. The two didn't play together but Croyle had talked to the coaches about him a little bit.

"Javy ... when they signed him at Alabama, Coach Shula and them were still there and they said he was going to be something special and then he had the career that he had. He's had a good camp and he's another one of those young guys we're looking to help us."
