On Current Roster: Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray
A nalysis: Alex Smith, despite no new contract, isn’t going anywhere after having an incredible season for the Chiefs. Daniel played admirably in the season finale versus the Chargers. Bray did well in the pre-season and Murray is a 5th Round rookie. Cutting Daniel can save a little over a million dollars, but I doubt Reid would cut a more proven player over a rookie. Despite being drafted, Murray is not a guarantee to make the roster. Reid should make Bray and Murray fight for the #3 QB spot, and I could see Murray winning put over Bray. It is also possible that the Chiefs keep 4 QB’s on the roster. Due to his injury, Murray could be a redshirt for the Chiefs, which would keep him on the roster and yet not count against the final 53.
1. Alex Smith
2. Chase Daniel
3. Aaron Murray
