Career backup Chase Daniel did about all a backup quarterback can be expected to do in 2013. He mopped up in four games for Smith and then performed serviceably on his first career start in week 17. Daniel was accurate, if not spectacular, against a hungry Chargers team. He led a team of backups to a near upset victory by completing 21/30 passes for 200 yards and a score. That game was an illustration of Daniel's upside, which isn't high. He's by no means the quarterback of the future in Kansas City but his football IQ and experience could carry him for a short stretch if Smith were to be injured. He'll battle with Tyler Bray for the QB2 job, but no one really thinks Bray is ready to wrestle that away yet. (May 1)

Latest News

Chiefs | Two likely to compete for one spot (Tue Jul 22, 09:10 AM) - Kansas City Chiefs QBs Tyler Bray and Chase Daniel are likely to compete for one roster spot with QB Aaron Murray likely to make the team behind starting QB Alex Smith.

Our View: A very interesting note here. Murray is smart and accurate even though he lacks size and athleticism. The rookie is coming back from the knee injury he suffered last year at Georgia, but reports say that he feels good. Bray has a rocket arm but little accuracy. Daniel has the most experience here, but it sounds like he's fighting for a roster spot. Most thought Daniel was a lock for QB2 in Kansas City with Murray and Bray fighting for the QB3 (developmental) spot.

Chiefs | Tyler Bray expected to push for No. 2 job (Sun Jul 13, 08:20 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs QB Tyler Bray is expected to push QB Chase Daniel for the No. 2 quarterback job during training camp.

Our View: Good luck with that. Bray has a rocket arm, but he's struggled with maturity and consistency. He's got arguably the best physical tools of any QB on the roster (yes, including Alex Smith), but he may lack the football intelligence to play up to his potential. In college at Tennessee, Bray was often bailed out by his incredible wide receivers like Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter. He doesn't have a group like that in Kansas City. We're not high on Bray's dynasty value, but keep an eye on him in the preseason to see if he's improved his raw game.
