Brady Quinn Reportedly Took Less Money With Chiefs

So, Brady Quinn apparently wanted out of Denver. At least that's the way I take this latest bit of news from Peter King of

How much did Brady Quinn want out of the Denver quarterback-go-round? So much, I hear, that he turned down an offer of $2 million from the Broncos and accepted a one-year, $1.5 million deal in Kansas City.

Quinn was scheduled to visit the New York Jets before they signed Drew Stanton in free agency. He also reportedly visited the St. Louis Rams.

Quinn probably knew the Broncos quarterback situation would turn into a three-ring circus, even if Peyton Manning didn't come to Denver. The presence of Tim Tebow and all that comes along with that is probably difficult for those in his shadow to handle.

The Broncos are also seemingly trying to replace Tebow. With the pursuit of Manning, and rumors they looked at Matt Flynn in free agency, it seems to me that Denver wants to upgrade at quarterback. And this comes after Quinn was on the roster and never got a chance to start over Tebow, which tells you all you need to know about what his future would've been in Denver.
