No shortage of experienced (and not so experienced) quarterbacks available, and plenty of teams in need.
Matt Cassel is hurt. The offensive coordinator has been dismissed. The wide receiver corps is in shambles. No wonder there’s not one member of the Chiefs not named Dwayne Bowe that I’d want on my fantasy team.
I started this series on no-win situations with WR Roy Williams, who finds himself in the middle of the soap opera in Dallas. Now I’m adding Kyle Orton to the list. It’s easy to say, if they produce at an incredibly high level there won’t be a problem. Well, we have a problem, because in both situations Pro Bowl play is the bar.
The Jacksonville Jaguars remain interested in acquiring Kansas City quarterback Tyler Thigpen, and the Chiefs are certainly open to trading him. That mutual interest has not cooled and sources close to the situation maintain this trade could still occur.

Should a team offer a mid-round draft pick for the backup quarterback, what the Chiefs are seeking, they just might get themselves a steal.
