Other QBs rubbing off on Tyler Bray

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The biggest knock on Tyler Bray when he entered the NFL out of Tennessee was questions about his preparation and playbook study.

It is a primary reason why the strong-armed Bray went undrafted and signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent.

However, preparation may no longer be an issue for Bray. Kansas City coach Andy Reid credits those around Bray for helping bring him a long.

“We have a very smart quarterback room,” Reid said Tuesday. “Alex Smith sees everything at the line of scrimmage and he is a very smart quarterback. So are Chase (Daniel) and Ricky Stanzi. They are smart guys. It is unbelievable how far Tyler has come along working with those guys.”

Bray has looked good in training camp and he is currently leading Stanzi in the race to be the No. 3 quarterback. Unless he totally bombs in the rest of the preseason, it would be an upset if Bray doesn’t stay on the 53-man roster because of his long-term potential.

Credit goes to him for challenging himself and working on the mental side of the game since joining the Chiefs.
